The pair have been teasing the track online for a few days, sharing photos of the two together on their Twitter accounts.
The song marks the fourth single to be taken from Sivan’s upcoming second album ‘Bloom’. It follows the title track, ‘My, My, My’, and ‘The Good Side’. “I’m so honoured to be on this with my dear friend and pop king @troyesivan,” Grande wrote when sharing the track on Twitter. You can listen to ‘Dance To This’ below.
Last month, Sivan said he doesn’t want to be a “gay icon”. “With people like Hayley Kiyoko and Brockhampton, we’re starting to get, finally, a diverse group of different LGBTQ perspectives,” he told Another Man. “That’s why I politely don’t want to take on that ‘gay icon’ thing.”
He went on to say that he doesn’t “represent everybody because I’m extraordinarily lucky.”

The 22-year-old Australian star came out in 2013 via a video called ‘Coming Out’. In it, he said: “I’m Troye Sivan and this is probably the most nervous I’ve been in my entire life.”
‘Bloom’ will be released on August 31. It follows his 2015 debut ‘Blue Neighbourhood‘. Speaking to NME at the BRIT Awards 2018, Sivan discussed how the new record differed from its predecessor. “There’s a lightness to the album that wasn’t on the last one,” he said. “People can expect to have a really good time to the album. It’s about love.”
