James Arthur Mashes Ariana Grande's 'Into You' And R. Kelly's 'Ignition,' And We're Super Into It

Mic drop.

In an iHeartRadio live session, singer James Arther performed a cover of Ariana Grande's "Into You" and, of course, we're really into it. 

Arthur — who's hit "Say You Won't Let Go" has nearly 400 million plays on Spotify alone — put an acoustic spin on Grande's pop hit, showcasing his stunning voice alongside keyboard instrumentals. 

And just when you think things are wrapping up, Arthur mixes in the chorus from R. Kelly's "Ignition (Remix)," making for an unsuspected but wildly appreciated addition. 

In less than a week, the performance, uploaded to YouTube, has garnered more than 670,000 views, with tons of positive notes flooding the comment section.

"He can cover any song and make it his own!" one person writes. 

"James' voice always brings me to tears. I don't know what it is about it, it just makes me so emotional. It's hands down the most beautiful voice I've heard," another adds. 

Needless to say, this is one performance you won't want to miss. Check it out in full below:
