After a 9-second video of Kylie Jenner waking daughter Stormi Webster up by singing "rise and shine," the three-word song has caught on – so much so that Ariana Grande has remixed it!
The original viral "Rise and Shine" tweet comes from a video on Kylie's YouTube channel, in which she gives a tour of the Kylie Cosmetics offices. After the 9-second clip was tweeted by Owen Russell (@0wenRussell) on October 14, it racked up 12 million views in two days.

People decided "Rise and Shine" was the greatest pop song of 2019, remixing it with AutoTune and setting it as their phone alarm ringtone, so they'll always wake up to Kylie.

And as the "song" reached its viral peak on October 16, Ariana caught on and sang "Rise and Shine" on her Instagram story, delivering the flawless vocals we all deserve. (Sorry, Kylie).
Captioning her Instagram story, Ariana wrote "@kyliejenner can i sample," asking to use the snippet in a future track.

Of course, Kylie responded right away – and granted permission to Ariana to sample the song. But she had one condition, requesting to be in the future "Rise and Shine" music video.
