While Apple prepares to pay a 14-year-old for sorting out its FaceTime security bug issue, the company forges along in its “moji” developments with three new celebrity Memoji ads. Apple Music released three videos today that feature Ariana Grande, Khalid and Florida Georgia Line belting out their latest tunes in Memoji form, the human edition of the brand’s Animoji technology.

In their respective videos, each artist sings their most recent tracks as their characters embody the musician’s appearance and movements. Grande, who recently called off her Grammys appearance, performs a snippet of “7 Rings.” Khalid’s spot features his “Talk” single, which released just yesterday. Country music duo Florida Georgia Line rounds out the advertisements by performing their record ”Simple.”

Watch below to see Grande, Khalid and Florida Georgia Line in action.
