Fortnite has made collaboration with well-known musicians and artists like Marshmello and Travis Scott in the past which has led to mind-bending in-game concert, many of which broke the record of concurrent viewers on the internet.
Apart from the musical concerts, these artists also get their in-game cosmetic skins that could be purchased by players and fans to keep as a souvenir after the event comes to an end. The arrangement has allowed both Fortnite and the individual artist to make millions in return, which is another reason why players can expect more collaborations in the future.
Shortly after the success these in-game events garnered, Fortnite introduced their 'Party Royale' mode which sets up the stage for future collaborations with upcoming musical artists as well.
A few months back, Ariana Grande was rumoured to be the upcoming star set to perform on the virutal stage of Fortnite. However, there hasn't been any official confirmation from Epic Games yet.
