Ariana Grande is a big fan of being compared to Mariah Carey – she thinks it’s a huge compliment! Ariana told Digital Spy:
She’s an inspiration, she’s the greatest female vocalist, so it was definitely a compliment. Mariah and Whitney Houston were my goddesses growing up. We thought [The Way] would get to the Top 15 and that that would be a great debut and we’d celebrate. I didn’t expect any of this, and I didn’t expect it to debut at 10 on the Billboard chart either. It was craziness to me.
Ariana was in the recording studio again this week working on a new song! Here’s what she told fans:
Studio w @HarmonyBOE yet again. He did The Way and most of my album that’s coming out soon … I think it should be the next single … Amazing session tonight @harmonyboe @joblaq00 @jonescrow I love this song so much. My favorite yet! Such an exciting feeling #makingprogress
We can’t wait to hear all of Ariana’s new music!
