Ariana Grande Played Mac Miller's Music in Arena Before Opening 'Sweetener' Tour

Nobody revealed which Mac song played, but it clearly affected them, as they tweeted. A video shown Monday during Grande's first performance on her tour urges fans to "take a stand".

One fan tweeted, "Ariana Grande had Mac Miller's music playing while people got into their seats for her concert".

Dubbing the push #ThankUNextGen, people can sign up at her concert or register to vote simply by texting "ARIANA".

As you know, the superstar has been through a lot and she's managed to cope to the best of her ability but Ariana supposedly believes she just couldn't have done it without the support of her loyal fans.

The EMotion will still be the first to use the Fisker Solid-State batteries, but it won't be the first auto to launch. The other two more affordable models in the brand's upcoming lineup should follow the EMotion.

Tragic: Miller was 26 when he died last September following an overdose from alcohol, cocaine and fentanyl. And fans were, understandably, extremely emotional while listening to his music as they waited for Grande to take the stage.

Fans noted that Miller's music was playing over the arena's speakers before the show began, and since those songs are typically chosen by the artist, it would appear the choice was a small homage to the deceased rapper.

Even though many saw it as a touching gesture, this was not the first time Ariana Grande honored Mac Miller's memory. The show would also not include songs like "ghostin" or "imagine" do to the weight of performing the tracks as they are often tied to Miller.

Her post features a whiteboard reading "you like my rights? gee thanks, just voted", a play on Grande's recent hit song, 7 Rings.
