Ariana Grande Drops A New Single That Proves She’s Better Than You

Ariana Grande arriving at MTV VMAs August 2013At this point, the name Ariana Grande is kind of a hot-button issue in the Crushable office. We’ve had our eye on her since we first did a 5 Facts post on her five months ago, so we spend a lot of time gesturing wildly at each other while we rant and rave about how she should be way more famous than she is, more famous than Selena Gomez definitely, and maybe even Demi Lovato, even though some of us here at the desk (ME) find that blasphemous.

If you don’t believe me, though, you should listen to the song that Ariana just released, called ‘You’ll Never Know’. It’s poppy and light and catchy and we are SO OBSESSED. Here’s Ariana talking about the song, and her album, Yours Truly, which is being released on September 3rd:

“I’ve been working on my album for three years and I am so excited to finally share it with everyone now. ‘You’ll Never Know’ is a special song and I hope you love it as much as I do.”

We don’t have access to the track itself, because for whatever reason it’s not share-able yet on Sound Cloud, but here’s a YouTube video of Ariana performing the song live earlier this month:

You should watch it and listen to the song about ten thousand times, so you can do what we do, which is collecting up all our knowledge of her and saving up a ton of indignation about her not being more well-known. That way, by the time she finally blows up, we can be those annoying people who everyone hates because they’re always bragging about liking her before she was a genuwine celebrity. I can’t wait. Doesn’t that make you want to get on our ‘Ariana Is The Best’ bandwagon? It definitely should, if for no other reason than the fact that it’s a WAGON that a BAND plays on. What could be better than that?

      I’m always so blown away when that voice comes out of her. And I love her dance moves.

      I just saw her in a Nickelodeon movie called Swindle (don’t judge) and she was adorable.

      She’s going to be such a huge star and I can’t wait.

      I got the chills watching her perform at the VMAs pre-show. Such a big voice for such a small body.

      I just got finished telling my daughter that Grande is just copying Mariah Carey!

      Her voice is pretty, but I think the problem is I can’t understand what she is saying. Is it me, but all I understand is “Boy … something something…” Maybe she’d be more popular if she enunciated.

        Interesting point!

    • Vanessa Vieira
