You may know her as the character Cat Valentine from the Nickelodeon show “Victorious,” but now Ariana Grande will be known as a chart-topper with her new single “The Way,” because in just eight hours of its release, the song skyrocketed to No. 1 on iTunes. Sampling Big Pun’s "Still Not a Player" ft. Joe, Grande’s voice soars; she takes it to the stratosphere with the Minnie Riperton/Mariah Carey-esque range while Mac Miller flirts back on his verses.
Originally pegged as a singer of bubblegum, we think it’s safe to say she should stick with R&B! Get “The Way” on iTunes.
