In an industry full of spiteful break-up anthems, Ariana Grande continues to shine on the title track for her new album, “Thank U,Next”.

The track starts out by calling out all her high-profile relationships, but instead of dwelling on the negatives, she thanks them for everything she has gained from them. This song is so simple and yet, so beautiful. Rarely do we have pop-stars taking this turn on a track and making it so personal.

There is no word on the album release date, but rumor has it, it’s supposed to represent maturity and growth. We absolutely can’t wait to hear what else she has in store for us!

Take a listen below!

 

NEW MUSIC: Cashmere Cat – Quit [Ft. Ariana Grande]

Cashmere Cat did not play around with his debut album,9. Previously giving us singles featuring Selena Gomez and Camila Cabello, we finally get to hear his collaboration with Ariana Grande, “Quit”.

“Quit” is exactly what we would expect from the pair. Ariana adds the sultry vocals, while Cashmere gives us some serious productions. He holds back during the verses and let’s Ariana’s signature vocals shine, then it all comes together perfectly on the hook to deliver an absolute smash.

9 is out now, and you can hear it after the jump via spotify!

Take a listen to the Ariana collab below!

NEW VIDEO: Ariana Grande – Side To Side [Ft. Nicki Minaj]

After Ariana delivered a mediocre performance at the VMA’s, she dropped the video for one of my favorite singles off a fantastic album, ‘Side To Side’. The video is what you would expect from Ariana and Nicki, it oozes sex and is filled with a lot of meaningless visuals. It is time these pop-stars give their videos some depth, but I don’t see that happening anytime soon. Enjoy!

NEW VIDEO: Ariana Grande – Into You

With the release of Ariana’s latest album, Dangerous Woman, in FULL effect. She gives us her second single off the album, “Into You’. This song is definitely a smash, just like a lot of her tracks of the album.

This video gives me a very, “We Found Love” vibe which is never a bad thing because visually it remains a standout in the past decade. Anyway, we easily have another smash on hands for Ariana and her album is still killing the charts.

If you haven’t heard Dangerous Woman, I highly suggest you check it out because it is pop gold.

NEW MUSIC: Ariana Grande – Into You

Ariana has really been impressing me with her string of tracks that have come out off this Dangerous Woman era that she has going. With the release of “Into You”, I’m fully convinced that there is no stopping her. While “Into You” is a generic pop smash, that doesn’t mean its a bad thing.

This track is fun, its definitely a party starter for summer, and with the sex appeal she is bringing this time around, it makes for a hit. Her vocals are sounding better than ever this era, and the producers are definitely stepping it up.

Ariana is a pop star, and she is just getting started. Dangerous Woman is due out May 20th, and I fully believe it will do some chart damage for sure.

NEW MUSIC: Ariana Grande – Let Me Love You [Ft. Lil Wayne]

Ariana Grande is back at it again.

I have been a huge fan of everything she has released so far from this album, and now we have “Let Me Love You” featuring Lil Wayne. I have to say, this is amazing. Ariana has stepped up her game so much in terms of maturing and evolving her sound, from bubblegum pop, to almost a straight R&B vibe on this track. I don’t care too much for Wayne, but it definitely gives the track some more flavor.

I am actually most impressed with the production aspect of all these tracks. Ariana has taken it to a place where her vocals really shine and flow so smoothly.

Listen to the track below, and if you haven’t seen the VERY intriguing track list for her upcoming album, check it out after the jump!

NEW MUSIC: Ariana Grande – Be Alright

Ariana first premiered this track on SNL last week, and the internet fell in love. Ariana’s first attempt, “Dangerous Women” was a smash in my books. If you haven’t seen her singing acoustically in a strange bunny mask, I highly suggest you do because it will give you more confidence in her amazing vocal ability.

“Be Alright” is equally as amazing, she took it somewhere else with production. She kept her safe upbeat, radio friendly sound but that production is what takes it to another level. It is almost Jamie XX sounding at points, and definitely giving this radio pop a much needed change up.

I’m impressed with everything Ariana has done this era, and I have to say while I wasn’t a huge fan of her vocals before, she has definitely matured.
