Problem by Ariana Grande ft. Iggy Azalea
Ariana Grande is quietly emerging as one of the best R&B/pop artists out there. She’s overly slept on by hipper tastemakers because she’s cutesy, wholesome, and came up out of Nickelodeon. But, seriously, Yours Truly was a good album and she has some excellent songs (Right There, The Way, Baby I).
No doubt, her music could still use some maturation. It tends to be a bit innocent and virginal. And, I agree with pitchfork that we could do without the goofy rap interludes sometimes featured on her singles. (Mac Miller almost completely ruins The Way).
The girl has got a lot of talent and is headed in the right stylistic direction.
