Ariana Grande may have scored a #1 with her debut album ‘Yours Truly’ this week, yet that hasn’t stopped the 20-year-old from setting her sights on its follow-up. Already.
Details after the jump…
You just released Yours Truly but your sophomore album is slated for February. How is it coming along?
I’ve started working on it. I’ve come up with a few, two songs already that I want on it. It’s an album that I want to do a little bit different. I don’t want it to sound like an extension of Yours Truly. I want it to sound like an evolution. I want to explore more sounds and experiment a little bit. I have a bunch of ideas I’m very excited about and a lot of stuff
Hmmm. This is quite the conundrum, isn’t it.
On the one hand, a rush release doesn’t do the quality that is Ariana’s talent much justice. Nor does it embrace the potential longevity embedded in her first album.
That said, we’re in an era where folk forget acts. And quickly too. So, in this regard, we say…why not drop another LP?! After all, we’ve always wondered what the “Rihanna” approach to album releases would do for a singer that can actually sing.
Roll on February!
