On Monday, E! News reported that the duo, who worked together on Grande’s first album and also on her summertime megahit “Problem,” are now dating. The new couple reportedly caught a late afternoon showing of “The Purge” at a Los Angeles movie theater, where several fans spotted them smooching during the flick.

While it sounds like they made beautiful music together in the movie theater, Grande’s new single also features her new beau. Big Sean collaborated with her on the promotional single “Best Mistake,” which is a bonus track recorded especially for fans who pre-order her new album, “My Everything.”

Earlier this year, Grande revealed that Big Sean was one of her best friends, and said she took some advice from him regarding “Problem,” a song that she was initially unsure about recording because it was so different from her usual style.

“[Big Sean] was like, ‘You’ve got a beautiful voice, but this is pop music—you gotta take a risk. You gotta let go and have fun.’ So I did,” Grande told Entertainment Weekly.

Earlier this year, Grande, told E! she likes to date a “bad boy” -- and Big Sean definitely seems to fit the bill. The hip hop star has had a few legal issues in recent years, including an assault charge which was later dropped.

As for the 21-year-old pop superstar, Grande has been linked with The Wanted heartthrob Nathan Sykes as well as 19-year-old Australian singer Jai Brooks. After an on-off long distance relationship with Brooks, she broke things off with him for good last month. Meanwhile, Big Sean’s former fiance Naya Rivera married actor Ryan Dorsey just three months after her split from the rapper.

Ariana Grande’s new album “My Everything” drops on Aug. 25 at midnight.
