Frankie Grande on the Possibility of Him Collaborating With Sister Ariana (Exclusive)

The singer also discusses what inspired him to recently join Twitch.

Frankie Grande is spilling the beans on if he and his chart-topping sister, Ariana Grande, will be making music together in the days ahead.

ET recently sat down with the 36-year-old multihyphenate to chat about the release of his song, "I Got Me," which he used to introduce himself to new fans when setting up his Twitch channel. He also touched upon his close bond with his sis and if they might enter the studios someday soon for a collaboration after they covered "Seasons of Love," a track from the 1996 musical Rent last year.

"We're very much in our own lanes," he tells ET. "You know, like… I'm doing Rock of Ages out here in L.A., she started on Broadway, so our collaboration was 'Season of Love.' We just dropped that this year, which was amazing. It was the first time we every released something together. And it was beautiful. So, whether or not something like that happens in the future, I'm sure it will."

"We're family and we do stuff all the time together, it just has to be right," he continues while discussing "I Got Me." "She is the pop star. She's doing, like… I ain't coming for her gig with this track, you know what I'm talking about? This is just a labor of love that I'm excited to share with the world."

While discussing the possibility of working with Ariana again, Frankie shared his thoughts on the creative differences between him and the songstress.

"And honestly, I'm a little bit more of a rocker, so, I don't know, if the timing is right," he adds, before trailing off. "I think it would be because we want to say something, you know? I don't think it would just be just to release a song. I think it would have to be for a purpose, and we'll see what that is."

Frankie also explained what first attracted him to Twitch as a new avenue for his career.

"So Hal [Leon, his boyfriend] and I, you know about our love for gaming! We went to two gaming conventions. We went to E3 and we went to TwitchCon. And when we were walking around these gaming conventions, I saw no one that looked like me," he says. "There was no LGBT representation at all anywhere on the entire floor. I felt like a little bit like, 'Wow, this is a little sad.' Because I know there are so many gay gamers out there, you know, gay-mers, hello!"

"So, I was like, 'Huh,' we do this and we should share our love of gaming with the world and just be, like, an example to the world that LGBT people can come in all different shapes and sizes and all different interests."
