About Ariana Renee

16-year-old musical.ly phenom Ariana Renee is conquering the social media platform one rap song at a time. Deftly lip syncing to everything from Lil Wayne’s “6 Foot 7 Foot” to Meek Mill’s “R.I.C.O” and Nicki Minaj’s “Feeling Myself” (which got her featured on the app), @arii regularly collaborates on the app with fellow Floridian and friend Baby Ariel, who introduced her to musical.ly in the first place. Showing off her #LipSync skills (and occasionally her #LipStick colors) to nearly 6M fans, she has racked up over 240M hearts, proving that her Twitter handle is totally true—@TheyLoveArii.
