Last month saw teen sensation Ariana Grande shock and awe with surprise hit ‘The Way (ft. Mac Miller)’.
Beyond rocking to the top of the iTunes chart, the catchy Pop-Urban cut notably saw many a Mariah Carey comparison made, thanks to its composition and vocal delivery. Indeed, for a number of folk, the former Nickelodeon star bears shades of an early Ms. Carey-Cannon.
And while the Mimi debate rages on, Z100 ploughed through the speculation and simply put Grande to the test.
At the tail end of their recent interview with the 19-year-old, they requested an acapella of ‘The Way’, which she agreed to. How did she fare? The answer awaits after the jump…
Yes, yes, and yes! Ariana laid all doubt to rest.
Serving up vocals as good as (and at times better than) the studio recording, she re-affirms why she is definitely one to watch. The prospect of what she could blossom into is uber exciting!
