With a hot summer track, brand new television show and her debut album on the way, 2013 is shaping up to be Ariana Grande‘s breakthrough year. Looking fresh-faced as ever, the 19-year-old actress-turned-singer showed off her spunky, girl-next-door style for the August 2013 issue of Seventeen. Grande is tipped to make her mark in industry with the release of her first album Daydreamin’, tentatively scheduled for a late August release, as well as an opening slot on select dates of Justin Bieber‘s Believe Tour.
Grande tells Seventeen she’s currently in the mix of making the final edits to her debut LP, featuring platinum hit “The Way”: “I’m a big perfectionist! I’m trying to channel super-confident women like Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey and Beyonce, because I realized that if you want something, you really have to go for it, just like they do.”
If Ariana’s Daydreamin’ is anything as good as the music of the three superstars she name-dropped, where do we pre-order?
