Ariana Grande delivers her brand new single ‘Baby I’ to the world today, watching it soar straight into the digital Top 20 upon release!

Released by Lucien Grainge‘s Universal Republic records,  ‘Baby’ follows the release of her smash hit debut single, ‘The Way‘- featuring Mac Miller, but- if our take on it is anything to go by- will no doubt surpass ‘Way’ in every way.

    YAAASS Ariana Slay!!!!

  3. Kiii July 22, 2013

    This song is giving me such throwback r&b vibe. Kudos to her.

    • JER July 22, 2013

      throwback R&B? child goodfucking night. 2002 is not throwback. LORD have mercy!!!!

      • 2bad2bme July 22, 2013

        2002 is 11 years ago honey… what year are you living in? It’s throwback if it’s over a decade ago idiot

      • JER July 22, 2013

        … gurlbye. 2002 is not throwback.

      • Pon_de July 22, 2013

        What do you expect? These kidz don’t think the world existed until Beysus was born in a vocoder…

  4. Yours Truly July 22, 2013

    It made it to the top 10 on iTunes in less than 2 hours!! (currently #3) I’m proud of Ariana, people are finally noticing her talent. She’s not “the redhead from the Nick” show anymore lol. Hopefully Baby I goes to #1 on iTunes by the morning.

  5. mimi July 22, 2013

    Mariah would be proud!!!

  6. dastarkidd July 22, 2013

    I love it!!! Only thing I would like her to work on is pronouncing her words it sounds like she has a cold, but other than that I think we are watching a future diva unfold! Let the hits keep coming!!!

  7. Reece Davis July 22, 2013

    Love it! The chorus reminds me of After Dark by Kylie

  8. FierceRokstar July 22, 2013

    Bought the song on iTunes! love it. This girl has VOCALS! it’s refreshing to hear a young pop star with pipes.
    HUGE FAN 🙂

  9. Selenator July 22, 2013

    Yes!!! Slay Ariana!! I love the 90s vibe to her music, it suits her well. I love this song more than The Way

    • TRUTH SERUM July 24, 2013

      LOL She can sing. It is sampled to death … but I was born in the 80’s grew up in the 90’s … and New Jack Swing, midtempo ballads, and grit defined the 90’s sound. This is definitely not it.

  10. SUAVE July 22, 2013


    This song is f****** sick!!!

    I’m sorry but R&B/Soul/Urban, with elements of Pop, is Ariana’s calling.

    She’s so talented and can saaaaang hunty! Yaaas. I hope r&b is making a commercial return,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I can feel it comn.

  11. girlboom July 22, 2013

    This s*** is corny as f*** and Ariana is a hugely misguided artist. You can tell by her live performances that she is being guided into a direction where she doesn’t feel comfortable. She keeps doing these Mariah-esque songs but Mariah could SELL the song that’s the difference between the likes of a legend and a Disney girl living out a singing dream.

    • LTM July 22, 2013

      She’s not from Disney and she actually wanted to do this style herself. Look up her 1st single called Put Your Hearts Up, its a bubble gum pop song that’s completely different from the direction she’s going now. Her sound now isn’t original but its better than the previous one. Refreshing really.

    • channel_ROMAN July 22, 2013

      Gurl bye her debut single is already at 1.5M in sales. #Beautiful is not platinum yet after 12345975 versions released w. 7899765 music videos.

      • Common Sense July 22, 2013

        Are we really going to bring in numbers now? I would love to see how many millions of copies her debut album sells. Surely it’ll be more than Mariah’s 10 million debut. After all Ariana has been on TV for years and has had a loyal Youtube fan base for years as well.

      • JOHNVIDAL July 22, 2013

        B**** plese #Beautiful will top the 1 million mark this week in the USA and was released like 2 months after The Way. I don´t see that much difference apart from the fact it is like Mariah´s 1000th single and Ariana´s first one. That fact alone shows the real difference…

  12. S****** Blonde July 22, 2013

    This girl like Gaga, is gonna build her career in the name of ‘blatanly fakeness’, talented but so unnoriginal, wake me up! but the singer in this song is Mariah Carey.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 22, 2013

      This is way worse than Gaga´s inspirations sorry. The problem with Gaga and Madonna didn´t come until Born This Way era. Even you liked her before that. Gaga had a huge debut era and she started a new sound and started to do huge videos like we didn´t see since I don´t know when, etc. She went too far with Born This Way maybe but she can leave that in the past with her new album.
      But this girl? Man, she is not a songwriter or something, so can anybody explain to me why the hell isn´t her team of songwriters able to leave her obsession with Mariah behind and make her different songs??? I mean, damn, it is a really wrong way to debut in the industry. Even Leona Lewis was better and her debut music was way better than this, and had big sales (I don´t see it for this girl, huge album sales I mean) and she still couldn´t survive more than two eras-albums on top.

      • LTM July 22, 2013

        Gaga was called a carbon copy of Gaga since day one. It got worse after the Alejandro video came out.
        Honestly, Ariana could make EDM songs and the comparisons would still be there. It doesn’t matter what music she makes, anyone who can hit those notes will be compared to Mariah because she was the first who could hit them and made it her trademark. Just look at how Christina got the comparisons when she was making bubble gum t*** pop. Most likely Ariana will stick with this sound for the album and move on for her second one. But I’m ok with this sound. Its dated in a good way and it reminds me of old school MC in a good way.

      • PressedVidal July 22, 2013

        Why are you always in Ariana post writing essays? Please stfu and let us enjoy. No one cares about your thoughts.

      • JOHNVIDAL July 22, 2013

        I´m talking to @s******, not you. Thank u very much for your words though.

      • PressedVidal July 22, 2013

        Idgaf I’m talking to you pressed b****

    • stephy the lambily July 22, 2013

      Good Morning Baby.

    • stephy the lambily July 22, 2013

      Also, Ariana sounds nothing like Mariah Carey. She sounds like Ashanti in this song from Ashanti song “Aww Baby”

  13. toohotfortv July 22, 2013

    It’s good, but I would feel some type of way if I was Mariah. I’m not even sure how to feel; I’m conflicted. I can’t even know what to say 😉 Anyway, I still don’t understand the single cover though. It looks like something that was taken at sears portrait studio in the late 70’s.

  14. nobitchassness July 22, 2013

    Ariana’s doing all the right things. This is another hit.

  15. Ismyhalostr8 July 22, 2013

    Im starting to real love her.
    Future stan. Cant wait for this album.

  16. LTM July 22, 2013

    I’m loving this track. The dated 90s style Urban t*** pop style fits her well. Reminds me of the few R&B tracks on Christina’s debut album. I can see her taking home Best New Artist at the Grammys. Who would’ve thought that a Nickelodeon star would outperform the acts turned out by the Disney Chanel machine.

    • channel_ROMAN July 22, 2013

      She’s not really outperforming them. Miley’s we can’t stop is selling up to 216,000 singles a week. That song is platinum and peaked at #3 and was released in June, Selena Gomez Come and Get it which was released in April is 2x platinum and peaked at #6. Ariana’s The Way was released in March and it’s sales are roughly around 1.4-1.5 mill and peaked at #9.

  17. PressedVidal July 22, 2013

    STFU WITH THE MARIAH S***!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. Common Sense July 22, 2013

    Generic and dated R&B. Those last few runs scream of Mariah Carey wannabe… Girl needs to get her own style before she’s labeled Mariah’s Lady Gaga.

    • FAITH HILL STAN July 22, 2013

      B**** PLS!!!!!!!!


      • DOSSOME July 22, 2013

        B****,go mine up a faith hill post and take your frustrations there…

      • stephy the lambily July 22, 2013

        Faith Hill Stan Girl what did we dicuss yesterday. We get it you hate Mimi. You aint gotta be mean Baby. Love You

  19. The Way July 22, 2013

    I see a lot of haterrrrrrrrssssssssss!!!

  20. The Way July 22, 2013

    No one cares about mariah like they care for madonna. Most young people hate mariah because she is an annoying diva b****. F*** her

    • DOSSOME July 22, 2013

      Young people are OBSESSED with Mariah,that’s why they always imitate her

    • JER July 22, 2013

      B**** throw yourself into traffic. Don’t ever try to come for the mother of your life. Don’t bite the hand that feeds your fave. POW

  21. stephy the lambily July 22, 2013

    OK! I loveeeee the song. Another Hit! 4sure… Go head Ariana Gurl. The song sounded like a left over Ashanti hit from 2002 LOL

  22. royalkev July 22, 2013

    She officially won me over! I’m getting song later! Ariana has arrived!

  23. HOTSTUFF July 22, 2013

    WOW i Love this Mariah unreleased track !

    • stephy the lambily July 22, 2013

      Yass Hot Stuff

  24. christinastherealtalent July 22, 2013

    So many of you on here calling her a copycat when so many of your faves have built their career on emulating other acts. Originaility hasnt existed in a long time but i look at talent without antics or gimmicks more than anything

    • Common Sense July 22, 2013

      I don’t have memory of any other pop singer that had the ability to go into opera but chose to go into the mainstream. Who was doing Mariah’s signature runs before her? Hell who’s been able to pull them off afterwards? No one.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 22, 2013

      Like your fave?

  25. JER July 22, 2013

    Aww Baby can you roll with me aww baby i just wanna love you baby

    Giving 2002 Murder Inc REALNESS!!!! Ashanti ha powa!!

  26. The Boy Toy July 22, 2013

    Oh give it a rest. This girl sounds nothing like Mimi. This song is cute, catchy and a hit!

  27. boy July 22, 2013

    The song is all over the place. She tries to hard showing of her voice. I can’t even understand the half of what she sings. To fast and not all to well pronounced the lyrics. And I don’t know why but the songs first 4 seconds reminds me in a crazy way to a moderend intro of Vision of Love.

  28. JER July 22, 2013

    But no really I’m sick of these copy/paste basic b****** going thru and taking bits and pieces from other’s songs. And not them using the THX Surround Sound as an intro. DEAD!! This song is nothing but Mariah’s “It’s Like That,” and Ashanti’s “Rock With Me” put in a blender with autotune turned up to 5, blend for 30 seconds, let sit for 3 minutes.

  29. boy July 22, 2013

    And I bet she is gonna use the word BABY in all of her songs. How deep HAHAHA.

  30. Lovebird ( I want to eat Cassie’s poonani) July 22, 2013

    OMG this is amazing, I am so here for this girl. This is bloody fantastic, I am going to Amazon right now to order my Ariana Grande Stan card. So here for these new girl Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato and now Ariana Grande. Amazing talent, wow.

  31. Lovebird ( I want to eat Cassie’s poonani) July 22, 2013

    On come on, listen to the song again, she sounds nothing like Mariah, she sounds like Ashanti on this song. Why are Mariah fans getting insecure, she’s a young talent doing her thing and doing it well. This song is a smash, I love Mariah but I feel Mariah fans are attacking Ariana for no apparent reason like they did Leona. Let the girl be.

    • Common Sense July 22, 2013

      She sounds nothing like Mariah; however, everything she does IN the song reeks of trying to sound like Mariah. Don’t tell me you don’t hear the ending of the song and how it’s a basic outline of many Mariah songs.

      • Lovebird ( I want to eat Cassie’s poonani) July 22, 2013

        So she sounds a bit like Mariah on some parts, that doesn’t mean she is outright stealing Mariah’s sound. The song sounds more Ashanti than Mariah.

      • channel_ROMAN July 22, 2013

        Are you mad because she could hit those notes. Shawty got a 4 octave vocal range.

      • Chiney Whale July 22, 2013

        @ Chanel
        Ummmm Mariah hits those notes in her sleep…GET A GRIP!

  32. Monstarebel July 22, 2013

    The song is alright… Sounds like Ashantis song…. idk the song is forgettable imo the girl can sing but material is kinda weak.

  33. IDK July 22, 2013

    LOVE IT!

  34. VANNY July 22, 2013

    I like this girl i really do especially after listening to her do mariah carey “emotions” almost identical! but this song is just a little to plain and boring to me!! but im pretty sure they are going to play this song on the radio so much that im gonna end up liking it after all especially the hook…. is it me or are they trying to make this girl the next mariah?? the hook on this song sounds just like mariah careys “oh boy”

  35. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 22, 2013

    I really hope it doesn’t get messy between The Lambs and the Arianators.

    • #Beautiful Carey July 22, 2013

      And if it does oh f****** well…. Im ready for war.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 22, 2013

        But we already have to deal with the Barbz, fighters, and occasionally the tired Madonna Stans.

        Ariana is talented and I like her.

  36. Mimi Carey July 22, 2013

    The song is basic…..

  37. LAMB4LIFE July 22, 2013


  38. RihBoy July 22, 2013

    She has a wonderful voice..I love her..but something about it just sounds like a cute for the moment song…I dont see it having any longevity….especially because of how dated it sounds. She needs different material….

  39. xcbxcbert546 July 22, 2013

    ~~ Unbelievable~`Wow~~`My friend Emily has just married to a handsome wealthy black man. They met through ~BlàckWhìteHub. Ç o m ~~ They told me it is a Serious black white dating for black & white single s seeking interracial relationships, friendships, dating ,love and more.. So, if you want to look for people with which you can date, you are at the right place.You can meet(lawyers,busy professionals, benefactors. models, celebrities, and so on….)If you are single, perhaps you can have a try.

  40. mr.m July 22, 2013

    She can sing for sure
    But she’s no Mariah tbh but she’s trying tho
    I think Jojo is much better but so underrated ..
    We didn’t have any NEW SIGNATURE VOICE since Xtina
    That’s why she is STILL the voice of our generation
    AND WILL be the voice for another decade to come 🙂
    #Truth #Fact #Deal

  41. Prince Minaj July 22, 2013

    All i can say is that Ariana Grande plainly said that she LOVES Mariah and thats some of her inspiration. She also said she loves the 90s throwback vibe and thats the direction she is going. PYHU was her first song it was pop and she clearly said she hated it. OK so get off her back she is trying to pay homage and do her thing.

  42. Chiney Whale July 22, 2013

    She doesn’t have that stratospheric feel to her voice like Mariah. She sounds like she hits her ceiling, Mariah always sounds like she can go higher and higher. The song is a lil generic but it is catchy.

  43. boy July 22, 2013

    Lambs calm down… She is officially
    doomed with the Mariah Carey curse.
    (For the people that doesn’t know this
    curse… google Christina Aguilera’s and
    Leona Lewis career. HAHAHA 😉

  44. The Campaign July 22, 2013

    I actually like the song…it’s a cross between Rock Wit U (Aww Baby) & Honey. Having said that I do agree that Ariana is really gonna have to be a lot more original. Sure the Mariah Carey comparisons are great, but there’s nothing better than carving your own path. (Day Dreamin?!? Posing from the right..lwhich Mariah imfamously does) On the other hand it’s good to see a young artist not trying to look like a s*** (cough Miley) and look classy.

  45. Jake July 22, 2013

    It’s such a shama that Mariah got her rightfully heir and that people think Rihanna is Beyoncé’s LOL
    That’s what an heiress is !

  46. eric July 22, 2013

    Not bad at all, but I still don’t think it’s single material.

  47. Personality July 22, 2013

    Ashanti(ish) But it was cool
