Ariana+Grande New Song: Ariana Grande   Right There (ft. Big Sean)

All roads lead to September 3rd for Ariana Grande. For, the date sees the petite powerhouse unwrap her hotly anticipated album debut ‘Yours Truly’. 

Building on the buzz courted by official singles ‘The Way’ and ‘Baby I’, the 20-year-old placed the LP up for pre-order on iTunes moments ago, and in tandem made album cut ‘Right There’ available as a free download for all that sign up. The cut, which – as  reported – features Big Sean, is also purchasable as a standalone track.

Is it worth a buy, though? Find out after the jump…

 

Sweet.

While not packing the vocal umph boasted by ‘Baby I’ and ‘The Way’, this sonically embraces the ingredients that make those tracks so infectious. Indeed, between the cut’s sing-along-song hook, piano led production, and radio-friendly sensibility, Ms. Grande continues to cement her sound; one we envisage she will continue to achieve great success with. Solid song.

    OMG I’ve been supporting this girl this whole time but I cannot anymore. This is such a Mariah Carey rip off, all that is left is for Mariah Carey to claim writing credits because this sounds like Mariah signature.

    I am so disappointed, I’ve been rooting for her this whole time but I cannot anymore. This is such a rip-off, this is Mariah Carey’s song, most definitely.

      Just because you can “hear” mariah singing it doesn’t make it her signature. She’s a new artist and with time she’ ll develop her own style. Just let the girl make her music and wish her the best. No need to criticize

    I don’t know why she keeps doing these Moo b-sides from 1998. She could slay if she had her own sound. The Way sounded like Moo but it was also somewhat of a unique 90s throwback, Baby I was just a leftover from two decades ago and that’s why it’s plummeting down the iTunes charts.

    She sounds like Christina when she 1st came out. The only similarity to Mariah is the whistle note n more of the urban influence. Notes that Mariah can NO LONGER hit.

    Her pronunciation is AWFUL…. it sounds like a big mumble, but besides that shes good I guess. And what’s with all of these Mariah comparisons? Arianas voice is know where near Mariah’s voice even today, Mariah’s clarity and tone is incomparable to this girl.

    Okay… Lets get off this girl’s balls for a moment. Yes she does sound like Mariah Carey. To some of us thats a bad thing… But I honestly dont see the problem. Im pretty sure she WAS signed to cause she DOES sound like Mariah… And there are alot of artists out there who take after their inspirations.
    i.e.
    Justin
    Chris
    and
    Britney
    all take after Michael Jackson.

    Its just something that happens. She isnt throwing shade, she is making music. So can the haters have a stadium seat please and write down some ideas to be progressive please? Thanks

    Stop complaining. At least this 20 year old white girl ain’t making corny ass dance/pop like the rest of her peers. And if this was 2 years ago, that’s exactly what she would be doing. I’m not gonna buy her s***, because she is way too young for my tastes…but I appreciate that she’s not part of the problem. In some small way she’s harkening back to a better music scene, so I’m not gonna slam her. At least she’s copying Mariah instead of Britney.

      ITA!!! She’s a little too young for my music collection but I’m glad Ariana is on the R&B throwback train rather than doing some talky, burpy auto-tuned “white girl wasted” kick ala Kesha/Dr. Luke, or some silly dance aerobics Carly Rae Jepsen “Call Me Maybe” tripe. Yes she’s blatantly copying Mariah’s late 90s style (as opposed to Christina and Jessica who came out biting her early 90s shtick), but in a world of Gaga, Katy, Rihanna, Taylor, One Direction and Bieber, are we REALLY gonna be mad at her for that???? It could be worse!

      Agreed. I don’t necessary like Ariana herself, but I am appreciative of the direction they’re trying to take her in. She’s not trying to be a poppy Disney girl like Demi or Selena and she’s not trying to be like Miley Cyrus copying Rihanna with water down “twerk” pop by Mike Will Made It. She’s working with Babyface and Keyshia Cole’s producers for Christ-sake. That alone gives her cool points for being different.

This is 2013, you can’t just come out with no personality, no originality, and swaggerjack at least 4 pop divas of yesteryear and not get clocked for filth.

    Loving this song!! This album is going to slay!! I can see this song being big on radio, especially with Big Sean on it. I can’t take you haters’ opinions seriously though. Why is it that when new artist come out everyone wants to compare? First she’s Mariah, then Jennifer Lopez, then Ashanti, now Christina Aguilera. None of those artist are alike each other. Ariana has loads of talent and loads of fans. She’s here to stay. TGJ recognizes this and they support her. Haters will have to learn to deal with it or forever be unhappy :)

    Yes, if it was 1996, this would be a Mariah track. That said, who cares. Maybe this will make Mariah step her game up. People have been wanting Mariah to do this style again for YEARS. She ignored her fans so somebody else stepped in and I’m okay with that.

    Now, she doesn’t have Mariah’s vocals at ALL (she can sing though), but you can hear how she is inspired by them.

    She’s actually really good. Maybe she does have Mariah’s style, but let’s be thankful it’s Mariah. What, would you rather have her songs like Rihanna’s? Come on, her song lyrics may not be that amazing, but her style – similar to Mariah’s – is definitely not trash. Besides, she doesn’t autotune her voice (not like pop musicians do today). She sings her songs live and sounds as great as the studio versions. Give the girl a break, she deserves some credit for that at least.
