Ariana Grande reigns supreme as the big-lunged Lolita of Instagram by dropping yet another taste of much-anticipated debut LP/former visual masterpiece Yours Truly. After mixing things up with the perky pop of “Piano”, a duet with Nathan Sykes and a soaring power ballad, the 20-year-old returns to the ’90s R&B-infused pop of “The Way” and “Baby I” on “Lovin’ It”.
Again, the slightly generic but catchy and beautifully sung tune sounds like vintage Mariah Carey. There’s no way around that lazy but accurate comparison. The thing is — I love old school MC, so Ariana’s growing list of musical homages sound pretty to good to me. Listen after the jump.
