Ariana Grande's Fortnite concert featured a special tribute to her late ex-boyfriend involving 'The Way'.
Over the weekend (Aug 6), Ariana Grande became the latest star to perform an animated concert in the Fortnite video game. In The Rift Tour, an avatar version of Ariana performed some of her biggest hits, including the likes of '7 Rings', 'Be Alright' and 'Positions'. Fortnite also launched an Ariana skin alongside the event so that fans could play as her in the game.
However, alongside the incredible animated theatrics, it was Ariana's touching Mac Miller tribute that really stole the show.
Since Mac Miller's passing almost three years ago, Ariana has regularly paid tribute to her ex-boyfriend and this concert was no exception. During the event, Ariana sang her debut single 'The Way' which features Mac. Not only that but during Mac's verse, Ariana's avatar climbed a stairway to heaven. Fans interpreted it as a nod to Mac now being an angel in heaven.
One fan wrote: "I’m sobbing! Ariana Grande pays tribute to Mac Miller during her Fortnite concert." Another added, "I'm just over here sobbing because Ariana was going up the stairs to Heaven while The Way was playing. I miss Mac." Someone else tweeted: "mac miller being a part of the ariana grande concert. my heart".
