Stream: Ariana Grande, “Baby I”


Thankfully, pop’s well of summer hits has yet to run dry. Ariana Grande, the 20-year-old Nickelodeon star whose burgeoning, Scooter Braun-backed music career could very well leapfrog Miley’s, has released a new single that’s even better than her duet with Mac Miller, a cute collaboration that somehow lent a little charm to everyone involved. Scanning other sites, it’s damn near impossible to find a writeup of “Baby I” that doesn’t compare Grande’s feather-soft oh baby, oh babys to Mariah—”I love Mariah Carey, of course, she’s the goddess of all vocals,” she recently told MTV. It’s a little imitative, maybe a little too harmless, but there are worse immediate connections you could make for an artist who, on paper, should sell a lot but amount to nothing. From where I sit, she’s two for two. Ariana Grande’s debut album, Yours Truly, comes out this fall, and “Baby I” is on iTunes now.

    her all-about-eve concept is creepy as shit (like if I were Carey I would consider taking out a restraining order…) but this kinda bops and it doesn’t have mac miller on it so it’s already better than her debut. And tbh if anything it sounds like Ashanti in her prime. She should get a Ja Rule feature and rule the end of the summer.
