Sevyn Streeter Covers Ariana Grande’s ‘The Way’ / Talks New Album

Published: Sunday 7th Sep 2014 by Sam

Over the course of the last year, Sevyn Streeter has emerged as one of R&B’s most exciting prospects.

A singer and a stage blazer, the 28-year-old is also notable for her resume as a songwriter.

One of the many hits to have been penned by the songbird include Ariana Grande‘s breakout smash ‘The Way’.

As such, it was fitting that during a visit to Grammy HQ to discuss her debut album (which follows last year’s ‘Call Me Crazy, But…’ EP) she also performed the cut – which served as Grande’s debut effort.

Peep the performance and interview below…

While we’d have preferred to see Streeter perform the song in a key more complimentary to her tone (rather a rendition that was more befitting to Ariana’s register), she still served up a solid showing.

Check out the interview…

    YESSS!!! She is so beautiful. Can’t wait for her debut album I was one of those people that bought her EP! and it’s still amazing.

    she needs to fire her makeup artist and visit a dermatologist, her skin is very uneven…she looks a mess…her nose contouring is a mess, the faces she makes while singing are a mess, she looks like she’s wearing my grandma’s fake teeth. The singing was okay (though she was feeling herself more than the crowd), but nothing special about her tone which is a must to take a pop song to the next level…to conclude she’s a boring baboon flopping mess. That’s the tea folks!

    Kisses to everyone yall have a great sunday!

    She hit her head notes better than Grande. She’s so talented.

    The song was a little big for her, but I’m impressed with what she did to stay in control of it. She’s got a lot of potential.

    Y’all know nothing about singing. She sang it in the same key as Ariana did. The only problem I would say is she sang it too fast and wasn’t allowed much breathing space to execute the chorus as flawless as ariana does. She’s a dope vocalist nonetheless and she delivered something unique to this cover and I love that she’s a fan. Sevyn also needs to release a full length album soon, she is one of the best writers in this generation of R&B.

    I like Sevyn for sure. But she did not give me what Ariana gives me on this song. Sevyn is super talented and a vocal powerhouse, but I just didn’t see this song for her.
