April 10, 2013 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-EllisAmerican actress, singer and dancer Ariana Grande is gradually making her way to the charts as she steps into the music business. But you may best know her as Cat Valentine from Nickelodeon’s show, Victorious.
2013 marks the debut of Ariana’s first studio album which will be named Daydreamin and the tracks have been inspired by a variety of artists such as Amy Winehouse, Alicia Keys, Fergie, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Katy Perry and Madonna.
So as this is the first time we will be hearing Ariana’s solo work, here is how she has prepared her public for her album. “They can expect a lot of honesty,” said Ariana. “It’s like a direct… you know, it’s like it used to be pages from my diary, instead of keeping a diary, I would write songs about what was happening in my life. So it’s really personal.
“It’s a Motown throwback and pop at the same time, so it’s 50’s and 60’s inspiration mixed with today.” And this really does describe her latest track that she has released which features Mac Miller. Other collaborations on her album include Sky Blue of LMFAO and Pebe Sebert.
We’re really feeling this track called ‘The Way’ with Mac Miller and although her sound may remind you of some current artists who are already in the industry, Ariana Grande certainly is an artist in her own right.
Have a listen.
