Chris Brown And Ariana Grande’s Duet “Don’t Be Gone Too Long” Has Been Postponed

Chris Brown and Ariana Grande‘s unlikely duet “Don’t Be Gone Too Long” has been postponed due to Breezy’s incarceration. The troubled R&B star (or someone in his team) launched a countdown to the single’s original release date (March 24) over the weekend but Ari stepped in today (March 17) to let everyone know that it won’t be happening.

“My loves… so obviously some things have changed recently,” the 20-year-old tweeted. “So we have to delay the dbgtl countdown… some things are out of our control.” Amusingly, one of Ariana’s confused fans pressed her for further information and she had to diplomatically spell it out: “My duet partner isn’t available at the moment to put the song out with me.” See her tweets after the jump.

Should Ariana scrap the single all together? Let us know in the comments below.

    It should be released with just Chris and not this unknown singer.

      That “unknown singer” has not only just recently performed for the President, but her albulm Yours Truly debuted at #1. She has also has starred in two Nick shows (Victorious and Sam and Cat) and has also been on Broadway before.

        And She won that award at the AMA’s, beating out other well known artists, as well as her AMA’s performance, that got everyone on their feet! If that makes you “Unknown,” then there are thousands of young people, on YouTube, who would love to be in her shoes!

      oh really, if anything only ariana should release it.

    • Madeley Hem

      The reason why Ariana didn’t release the song is that Chris was arrested thats why she didn’t want to release the countdown because she waanted to release the countdown with Chris.

    So they wait a little while longer for this one song, Ariana still has her own album, that she’s polishing up. He can’t stop that show!

    Look, I love Ari & Chris. There’s nothing to argue about. Putting up a song coming from two amazing artists would knock everyone’s heart! I really think there’s something in this song & we should all listen to it :)
