Ariana Grande made her way back to “The Tonight Show Sratting Jimmy Fallon” stage on Monday night. The singer performed “Jason’s Song (Gave It Away)” which was co-written by musical composer Jason Robert Brown who spent years in the pop music industry with no success.
“I did actually just sit down and write songs, none of them got picked up by any major recording artists because the publisher never sent any of them out,” Jason wrote on his website. “I kept my advance and fulfilled my contract and that was the end of my hilarious career in pop music.” While detailing the story behind their song, Jason revealed that Ariana was the one to reach out to him for a writing session.
The composer didn’t make the album’s track list, but the song is available for streaming.
