Ariana heading for second #1 album

Ariana Grande is set to notch her second No. 1 album in less than a year. Industry sources forecast the 21-year-old’s new release, My Everything, to sell over 160,000 copies in the week ending Aug. 31. The Billboard 200′s new top 10 will be revealed on Wednesday, Sept. 3. The new album, which was released on Aug. 25, is the follow-up to Grande’s first album, Yours Truly, which was released on Sept. 2, 2013. It debuted atop the Billboard 200, selling 138,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It has sold 487,000 in total.

My Everything boasts three top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100: “Problem,” featuring Iggy Azalea (which peaked at No. 2); “Break Free,” featuring Zedd (No. 4); and her collaboration with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj, “Bang Bang” (No. 6). On the Hot 100 chart dated Aug. 30, all three of those songs were in the top 10 at the same time, making Grande only the second lead female artist to have three concurrent top 10 hits. (Only Adele, among lead-billed women, had done it previously.) – Source: Billboard.com


Ariana answers fan questions

Ariana Grande chatted with Brooke Taylor about her new album “My Everything” and answered questions from her fans!


Ariana’s interview with Parade

Music has a new (pint-sized!) diva. Standing at just five feet tall, Ariana Grande has taken the musical world by storm this year, and her sophomore album has now surged to the #1 spot on iTunes’ album sales chart.

The Florida-born singer, 21, talked to Parade about her new album, My Everything, the recent cancelation of her hit Nickelodeon show, how her love life finds a way into her music, and more.

Tell us about your new album.
“I think it’s definitely more mature-sounding — and more pop-sounding, which I’m very excited about. I never thought I’d embrace pop as much as I have now. I love it and I think going forward, I’m willing to really embrace it more and more. I was so afraid of that for a while, but I’m really exited about it and I think that my fans will love it — I put too much work into it for them not to.”

You’re 21 now. Do you think you’re still thought of as a teen queen?
“I feel like I’m being accepted as an adult more now than ever before, but I don’t really feel like doing anything annoying or shocking to convey my maturity. I’ll just have to wait patiently. People who pay attention can see that I’ve grown up, but then again, I’m not really rushing.”

Have you experienced real love — and how does that influence your music?
“I think that love is one of the most important things in the world — if not the most important thing. You need to do everything with love and being in love is wonderful of course, but if you do things with love in general, you will always win. I wrote ‘Problem’ with Ilya and Max Martin a very long time ago and it was just about how I was feeling at the moment. I was scared to reapproach this relationship with this person that I was literally obsessed and in love with. I was like, ‘I love you, but I’m terrified with the idea of being with you.’ All my friends would be mad and have trouble opening up to the idea of me getting back together with this person, but I was like, it’s going to be worth it. The end of the song has a sassier ending, but in real life, it had a really positive, wonderful ending. And then in ‘Break Free,’ I didn’t have anybody to sing the song about at the time. so I sang it about fear and a bunch of negativity and ego and things in my life that I felt were really holding me back.” Read More »
