Mayer said he was confused by the request, thinking he was asked to sing a different song of the same title.

‘I have to come clean about something: They actually asked me to be a part of this and I totally misunderstood the assignment, and thought they wanted me to sing Imagine by Ariana Grande from her 2019 smash-hit album Sweetener.’

He then added snippets of the video – with himself edited into the mix, singing the lyrics to the Grande song.

He said ‘they were nice enough to send over a cut, take a look.’
