“My Everything” definitely worth a listen

OLIVIA PISCITELLO, Staff Writer

Ariana Grande’s sophomore album, My Everything, is on it’s way to the top of the Billboard charts. With three singles in the Top 10, this will be Grande’s second number 1 album after her debut, Yours Truly in 2010. Though the two albums are much different in comparison, My Everything is in no way lacking in content. Grande strays from her path of 1950’s style doo-wop vocals and R&B beats, to take a path into the mainstream pop music.

Collaborating with artists such as Big Sean, Iggy Azalea, Jessie J, A$AP Ferg, Zedd, and many others, Grande’s My Everything has the perfect mix of upbeat pop tracks and soulful songs accompanied by mind-blowing vocals to make the album complete.

When the fourth single of the album debuted, Grande was the first artist since Michael Jackson in 2009 to have three songs in the top six at the same time, also making her the first female to achieve that feat. Collaborating with writers such as Savan Kotecha, David Guetta, Harry Styles, and Ryan Tedder, it’s no surprise that the album has been such a success on the charts after it’s release following Grande’s VMA performance and “Bang Bang” music video on August 24th.

Along with four successful singles, there are even more tracks on the album promising chart success. Among those, “One Last Time” and “Break Your Heart Right Back” featuring Childish Gambino and sampling the 1980 hit “I’m Coming Out” by Diana Ross with lyrics hitting on the same topic.

After reaching #1 on the iTunes album charts minutes after it’s release, Billboard is anticipating it taking the spot on their charts within the release of their next Top 100. Critics everywhere, and listeners alike are praising Grande’s My Everything. Even if you don’t typically enjoy her genre of music, this album is definitely worth a listen.
