While 2013 has seen the return of a number of known names, it’s also introduced an array notable new ones.  For many, 20-year-old Ariana Grande leads the pack.

Boasting a four-octave range, the petite powerhouse continues to wow with her stellar vocals and infectious singles.

Proving that her buzz is entirely warranted, the former Nickelodeon actress showcased acoustic versions of her debut efforts ‘Baby I’ and ‘The Way’ for industry executives.

Watch Ms. Grande soar after the jump…


…and “that”, folks, is why we’re oh so amped to see the ascend of this budding superstar. Vocals for days and solid material to boot; we’re in!

Lookout for Ariana’s debut album ‘Yours Truly’ when it hits stores on September 3rd.

    • GrandGrande August 10, 2013

      F** shut your pressed ass up. You and your fellow lambs run to every Ari post because you guys KNOW that she’s talented. If you don’t like her, stay the f*** off of her posts you anorexic dying f**.

      • stephy the lambily August 10, 2013

        Oh hell nawwww!!! I may be a queen but anorexic & dying is not apart of my life. I am completely healthy boo boo. Also, im not no little white boy… I will come for you b**** soo watch it… Besides i said nothing bad about Ariana WHITE B****

      • GrandGrande August 10, 2013

        Burning f** there is nothing white about me. You will not come for me unless I SEND FOR YOU c***. I will chew your already sick anorexic ass up and spit you out. You come into every Ariana post with your tired ass shade and drags. The Arianators aren’t worried about Mariah, so stop checking for us. Ari will do fine with or without your support….not like your broke ass can afford to purchase her album anyway, pussie.

      • stephy the lambily August 10, 2013

    • stephy the lambily August 10, 2013

      Ohhh Thank You Boo

    • stephy the lambily August 10, 2013

      Yasss that song is very catchy & cool. Nothing special tho. But its definitely be a huge hit. Her voice also sounds more mature

    • GrandGrande August 10, 2013

      I like the beat and the chorus. Very catchy. I can hear it being played on commercials.

      • stephy the lambily August 10, 2013

        B**** YOU CANT HEAR S***….

      • FRESH NAVY August 10, 2013

        the link doesnt work…. repost?

      • stella August 10, 2013

        Yes it does. Copy it from http till roar )not these bs) and press Listen on the cassette.

      • FRESH NAVY August 10, 2013

        ohh i got it from a different site.

        ROAR is the most corny and dull pop song of katy perry’s career… this stupid song could have never made the final cut from TD

        if this is reflective of her other tracks on the album… GaGa has no competition!

        i was soo looking frwad to katy giving GAGME a run for her money

        second single maybe? ohh ok

      • MuiMui August 10, 2013

        Talented and very beautiful artist.

  3. GrandGrande August 10, 2013

    You cannot deny this girls talent. Just listen to those vocals. I can’t wait to hear her in 5 years! That tone, those runs & transitions = LOVE ARI!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • stephy the lambily August 10, 2013

      Shut Up

      • GrandGrande August 10, 2013

        Look at my #1 fan. Yaaaaassss f**, feed me grapes then return to the dungeon where your peasant ass belongs!

      • stephy the lambily August 10, 2013

        B**** shut the f*** up … I would beat your b**** ass

  4. Daddy2rough August 10, 2013

    She killed it . Hate her hair n clothes though

  5. Fierce & all August 10, 2013

    Y does she have the same hairstyle and outfits everytime….ugh, just bores me. But her voice is okay. I can’t lie.

    • GrandGrande August 10, 2013

      That is her signature babe. Deal with it. She’s a girly girl, not a ratchet queen or wannabe high fashion model.

      • Fierce & all August 10, 2013

        Doesn’t mean she can’t be more creative though. And it’s boring to me.

      • yabish August 11, 2013

        “not a ratchet queen or wannabe high fashion model” Rihanna much lol

  6. RIHEVEMBER IS COMING SOON TO DESTROY ALL YOUR F***** ASS FAVES SO JUST DEAL AND BE PRESSED. August 10, 2013

    she is f***** annoying. such a mariah wannabe. i just wanna slap her in the face.

  7. Special Delivery August 10, 2013

    In other news Beyonce has the best selling celeb fragrance line of all time.

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 10, 2013

      Britney though ?

      • Special Delivery August 10, 2013

        Nope.

    • Molly August 10, 2013

      lol

  8. Ariana August 10, 2013

    I love how you’re here for Ariana, but were you here for #Beautiflop and its 20 remixes? #OhOkay

    • Common Sense August 10, 2013

      Where’s Baby I on the charts though?

  9. Atm Jam August 10, 2013

    Katy Perry roar leaked. .. its GARBAGE.

  10. TEE August 10, 2013

    Y’all get everything wrong. She’s a CURRENT Nickelodeon actress

    • Common Sense August 10, 2013

      So a 2nd rate Disney child star?

  11. Rosie August 10, 2013

    Roar leaked, and as expected, it is TERRIBLE. I love how the b**** tried to go all dark and burned her blue wig and everything and yet the song sounds like it could’ve perfectly fit on Local Dream. Generic middle school/Nickelodeon mess. Kii. It’ll do good for a week on the charts because of her stans then it’ll struggle.

    • POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 10, 2013

      My Initial Reaction: WTF is That ? Is that Katy Perry ? a Lead Single?

      • Lana the legend August 10, 2013

        Its pretty basic.

    • Lana the legend August 10, 2013

      Its sad that Ariana makes more mature music than her… isn’t katy like 30?

      • Rosie August 10, 2013

        IKR. Kii.

    • Molly August 10, 2013

      Is it me or does that b**** scream to much to make it seem like she actually has range.

  12. TamartianLand August 10, 2013

    Her album comes out the same day as Tamar’s… Time for a showdown!

    • Molly August 10, 2013

      poor tamar

    • GrandGrande August 10, 2013

      The same day as who?

  13. Yours Truly August 10, 2013

    Beautifully done! She should do more acoustic performances.

  14. ciara fan August 10, 2013

    FLOAR BY PATTY PERRY IS GARBAGE AND GENERIC.

  15. Grump August 10, 2013

    But #beautiflop was/is a hit worldwide. It went platinum in over 3 countries 23 years after Mariah’s debut. “Baby I” on the other hand has completely dropped out of the BB100 but yet she’s slaying? Girl The Way is a one hit wonder. Y’all will face it and deal.

  16. HOTSTUFF August 10, 2013

    she sounds like herself live.

  17. Common Sense August 10, 2013

    Does this chick have some sort of speech impediment? It’s like she can’t pronounce words properly when singing.

  18. Michael August 10, 2013

    I wonder how long is this young school girl look will last before they start to s** her up… I dont think she has been be all sexed up but she is too high school with that hair and these sun dresses.

  19. Gopit August 11, 2013

    ……Hmmm
