New Song: Ariana Grande – ‘Break Free (ft. Zedd)’

Published: Wednesday 2nd Jul 2014 by Sam

It’s here! Ariana Grande‘s hotly anticipated new single ‘Break Free’ has finally been unleashed.

The Zedd featured cut is the second to be lifted from the vocal powerhouse’s sophomore album ‘My Everything’ – which hits stores on August 25th.

What are you waiting for? Take a listen below…

Having flirted with an Urban soaked sound on previous outings, ‘Free’ boasts a more Pop/ EDM taste. Is it progressive? We vote “no”. However, it’s clear Ariana is playing “the game” and making the right power moves to broaden her audience. As such, when framed this way, we’re not mad at her at all. And, if it’s any consolation, it’s awesome to still hear her incredible voice pierce through the genericity of the production.

Your thoughts?

    I’m mad at myself for actually liking this song considering I don’t like dancey stuff. But on the real though, I wish Ariana would stick with the more urban driven uptempos and leave this generic dancey stuff to the lessers.

    • NickiMinajTLCBeyonceCiaraStan July 2, 2014

      I totally agree! These songs don’t do her voice justice! I love her urban sound better

        I support interracial relationship. And you? If you are single and open to look for interracial partners,then don’t miss it. All members in this group believe Interracial relationship. That is –► ____ “MixedPartner “….. ℃ 0 M ___~
        Why not google it and get more information about it? You can google-►Mixed Partner

    Ive been obessed with her all week. She is promoting so hard from her album cover to teasing the new video & her TRL show. Her new style & sound is so good but i didnt know she was such big LGBT Supporter & her bother is Gay as well & he’s on the new season of Big Bother & she even has transgender friends witch helps me love her way more then I already did.
    But as far as the music goes I love the new song its so good! I feel like she wants to become the NEW PRINCESS OF POP & I think she’s young & talented enough to be. I watched Her TRL special & it was so good. I just love everything about her now.

      I’m so suck of people on this site saying what being black is or what’s not being black. Its like why should I look the same, have the same religion or listen to the same music its like being black means you half to be unoriginal. And that’s just not me. You guys can go be what TV says is black & I’ll do me. Peace & Love B*tchs. Lol

  15. xedos July 2, 2014

    so they bring back trl for her . they would never do that for a black artist

    • no ariana July 3, 2014

      That is why we need BET. I would like BET to do at least some 20 minute specials for urban artists like August, Tianshe, Sevyn Streeter, etc…. something with their fans instead of the 106 audience.

      BTW, this song is AWFUL

      r&b pop was working for her …. hwat is she doing… The Way was written by Jordin Sparks and Sevyn Streeter

      She needs to go back to urban / mariah / pop

  16. GoodMusicLover July 2, 2014

    I listened to it 5 times and I hate it more and more each time. You can do better than this, she needs to release a follow up soon because this is lackluster.

  17. There once was a pimp and his h**…. July 2, 2014

    Bawhahaha! I have never seen a rookie want to continuously flop like this. Everyone knows EDM is dead at this point.

    #Grande struggle

  19. eric July 2, 2014

    No to generic EDM!!!!

  20. #TeamTinashe Stan (BUY “2 On”) July 2, 2014

    I like Ariana she is apart of that #Team1993 life (The New Wave) along with Keke Palmer, Mishon, Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa and Queen Tinashe!!!!!! But don’t really like this song as much but it’ll do well due to being an ex disney kid and good looks, it’ll go far.

    Still to this day I’ve been continuously playing “Right There.” She did Lil Kim’ song justice.

    • Beygency July 2, 2014

      This is my fave on her debut album!

  21. Beygency July 2, 2014

    Ahh Ariana you could do better. It’s cute but it’s nothing special. I expected more though in all honesty, that beautiful voice shouldn’t be wasted on generic trash

  22. musicMatters101 July 2, 2014

    It was lackluster and a bit boring. I like Zedd’s contribution but I do not like the vocals or lyrics from a first listen. It does sound very been there done that sound wise.

    Good job Zedd, you are EDM. Ariana ehhhhh.

    I agree “Right There” minus Big Sean’s lazy ass verse/vocals is her best single to date.

  23. Absolved July 2, 2014

    I knew it was only a matter of time before she sold out to EDM/pop. Her using Keyshia Cole producers and trying to be a sugary version of Jojo was all a facade to see if she could carve out a lane that separated her from the other dorky Disney-pop dorks of her generation. It didn’t work, they saw she couldn’t be Mariah and so now she went ahead and accepted being Selena Gomez’s contemporary.

  24. IStanForYourFav July 2, 2014

    Cute, but not cute enough. It is not even that strong to be a single, so I don’t think (as of today) that she will be getting my $1.29 out of my PayPal account. Problem is better (no shade: Iggy made the song).

  25. Why so much hate? July 2, 2014

    It puzzles me how cruel you guys are to this sweet girl.
    I love the song. Sure it sound similar to other EDM songs but this is a hit. Given Ariana’s fanbase and how big “Problem” was, whether you guys like it or not this song will more than likely be a Top 10 song or it could even go #1 within weeks. And watch how Ariana will score another #1 album. Her team is doing everything right, promotion wise and there is a lot of buzz around her. Most of your faves who actually do promo to great extent still flop. Ariana is winning and if it bother most of you that much. Then so be it. Stay pressed.

  26. coolness July 2, 2014

    Don’t like it. Ari doesn’t have one of those voices that can suit multiple genres because her vocals on this EDM track are not the business. She has such a great instrument. Why not use it for better suited material? Good luck to her though.

  27. CherylSoldier July 2, 2014

    And people are obviously still relying on edm. Edm elements are in literally every song on the radio. Nice try

  28. MsThing485 July 2, 2014

    It doesn’t matter what “style” of music Ariana makes, because ultimately I’m too grown to be her fan. That little girl was born in 1993…the year Clinton took office, Jurassic Park, “Hip Hop Hooray,” and SWV’s “Weak.” That was basically yesterday…and her target demographic are probably 5-8 years younger than her; turn of the century babies who only just stopped wetting the bed. She can do makeshift R&B or cheap dance/aerobics-EDM and it’ll all still seem like cartoons to me.

    • EnRanc July 2, 2014

      Basically how I feel about it too. It was almost (keyword: “almost”) charming to see a newcomer of her age group make music that was somewhat reminiscent of a BETTER time in music, before all this EDM and Electro crap took over, but truth be told I’m not going to buy anything she makes no matter how it sounds. She’s for 8th graders. I’m not her audience.

      • Wheresmyjizzle July 3, 2014

        Then why the PHUCK are you commenting for???

  29. CherylSoldier July 2, 2014

    She’s literally making all of the right moves right now to maximize her audience. This girl isn’t playing!!!

  30. Rosie July 2, 2014

    This will do great on iTunes first week but then it’ll fall off the charts. It will be another one of those dated EDM singles that is heavy on payola but a mess in sales/streaming. Pretty sure the rest of the album won’t sound like this but I hope it isn’t as bad as Problem, either. The Way was a much better lead single IMO.

    • CherylSoldier July 3, 2014

      I think it was a good play to the masses though. It’s not as messy as GUY, but a little dated. The production isn’t as fresh as Summer.
      And babe, wtf is this rude ish from Canada. I seethe everytime it comes on the radio. And to think it might take iggy’s spot next week. Death

      • Rosie July 3, 2014

        It would’ve been a smash hit in 2012 but I don’t think it would work now.
        About that Magic! band, they’re trash. That’s their only hit here, too. It was popular a while ago but I think it was a bigger hit in Australia/New Zealand. I’m surprised their album is selling that much. They’re only slightly better than Nickelback, there’s much better Canadian artists.

  31. CT July 3, 2014

    Mariah is that you? oh never mind Mariah doesn’t do edm and her voice has soul. anywho this song wont do well on the charts its cute but everyone will be tired of this in 2weeks. even though I love edm didn’t someone tell her edm out of style? Oh and it will be a kii to see her try to stiff dance her way through this song.

    • wheresmyjizzle July 3, 2014

      PHUCK U

  32. CT July 3, 2014

    This the the part when I read you… this sounds like a watered down version of “only girl” if Rihanna released this for R8 it would go straight to number one.

  33. wheresmyjizzle July 3, 2014


  34. OMG Logic! July 3, 2014


  35. HOTSTUFF July 3, 2014

    a snooze fest -_-….a generic HOT PIECE OF TRASH and she sounds basic af…

  36. Liberation July 3, 2014

    The song is gross.

  37. Guille July 3, 2014

    I was really looking forward for This song but now that I had listening I think it’s a regular mainstream song the same sound of all the others song that are in the radio 🙁

  38. Morales July 3, 2014

    EDM is music for f***.

  39. Dem Lessors July 3, 2014

    Even judging by EDM standards this song is REALLY basic. She should’ve made a pop song or stayed urban. Miley Cyrus used WCS urban sound as a warm up, it reached number 2, then she released a Dr Luke song and she went to number 1. Ariana should’ve done the same if she wanted to broaden her audience but instead opted for this tired sound *sigh* her management were doing so good until now! Back of the Disney/Nick singers queue again, Miley>Demi>Selena>this b****!
