Selena Gomez is a true fan of Ariana Grande’s music!

On Wednesday, the Only Murders in the Building actress, 31, made a guest DJ appearance on SiriusXM Hits 1 and gushed about how the “Thank U, Next” singer, 30, has a catalog of songs that always put her in a great mood.

Before playing Grande’s 2019 single “7 Rings,” Gomez confessed, “Here’s another song I love, Ariana Grande. I cannot do anything fun without listening to Ariana.”

“I feel so empowered, and I think she is incredible, and I just have so much fun,” the Rare Beauty founder continued of her fellow pop star. “I’m the girl that’s playing Ariana all the time, and I think people kind of notice that, but I love it! I think she’s amazing.”

More than three years after Grande released her latest album Positions, the Wicked star returned Friday with a high-energy new single, “Yes, And?,” and an accompanying music video.

Ahead of the song’s release, the “Dangerous Woman” hitmaker shared a fun teaser on Instagram showing several people gossiping about her comeback.

“Real exclusive, typical Ari” one said, while another added, “I think I liked her better when her ponytail was a few centimeters higher.”

As others joined in to discuss rumors surrounding Grande, who’s dating actor Ethan Slater, another individual said, “Well I read it on the internet so it must be true.”

Earlier this week, Gomez revealed in an Instagram Story that she was taking a break from social media “for a while” and “focusing on what really matters.”

The words were written over a photo of her new boyfriend, producer Benny Blanco, as he lay on the ground outdoors playing with two small children.

The pair went public with their relationship in December. A source told PEOPLE earlier this month that Gomez is “super happy and present” amid the new romance.

Just one day after announcing her social media break, Gomez returned to Instagram to promote a collaborative cooking video with chef Gordon Ramsay on her Story.

In the 14-minute video, the Selena + Chef star cooked a breakfast burger featuring scrambled eggs, turkey bacon and more with the famous cook, 57.
