New Music: Ariana Grande f/ Mac Miller – ‘The Way’

The Way

Ariana Grande finds herself a bad boy in Mac Miller on her new single “The Way.” The 19-year-old Nickelodeon star coos about the way her man makes her feel on the breezy love song, which samples Big Pun’s “Still Not a Player.”

Expect more collaborations between the odd couple, who previously dueted on the holiday classic “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” “We’ve made a whole bunch of songs together and I think a couple of the other ones are going to be on the album as well,” she told Ryan Seacrest.

Within hours of its release, “The Way” has already cracked the top spot on iTunes. Ariana’s debut Daydreamin’ is due this fall.

    @CorCor yes she does. She’s incredible live. If you go to youtube you’ll find covers she’s done in her bedroom and in the studio. She even covered Mariah’s “Emotions” and it was perfect.

    @#RihannaNAVi, yes I agree! And The song is almost a replica of Big Punisher’s “Still Not A Player”….. It’s been done! Not a new mix to my ears :/

    She’s good & has a nice voice but Mac Miller is one of the wackest rappers in the game. Those lyrics had the creativity of a middle school child. Hell Big Sean or Tyga would of been a better fit for her song but those cats are not that much lyrically better than Mac either.

    @DorianGray, you obviously listen to the wrong Tyga/Big Sean songs/verses.

    Forget about that…the song is almost a replica of Big Punisher’s “Still Not A Player”….. It’s been done! No crearivity at all, just recycled beats

    @LaMusicaLivesOn,

    Also mac miller even makes a reference to Big Pun’s song in the start of the video…”I’m not a player, I just….” Then covers his mouth. Proof that the beats r recycled. Little to no creativity :/

    Yeah this definitely has that feel good beat to it like Thalia’s “I want you”.

  25. Bow Down Bitches

    Wow it’s been a minute since I’ve heard music like this! So appreciative! Now that you mentioned it, it does sound like Thalia’s song! This makes me want to listen to “I want you”. I think this sound like Thalia’s “I want You” meets “There’s Nothing” by Sean Kingston.

    @Bow Down Bitches, Oh yeah, you’re absolutely right! I miss that song “There’s Nothing”. Ariana song brings back memories!

    I’ve loved her voice ever since I heard her on that Nickelodeon show “Victorious.” I’m glad she’s going forth with a real singing career cuz she’s a major talent.

    This song is nice & I see big things in her future.

    She’s always been better than Victoria lol I was on twitter the other day and this song was trending. They were saying she was giving Mariah tease. I didn’t pay it no mind until now

    I love Ariana from Victorious! Her character is hilarious. And she has a natural awesome voice. And she’s like the little red-headed Mariah Carey.

    I LOVED this chicks voice from Victorious. I always knew that “POP” pop thing wasn’t quite for her. She needs tracks with a little more uumph in them and this one works for her. I love the song though. This is how the “young and fun” R&B should sound. Where is the support for those young black girls doing this sound though? Coco Jones is pretty dope as well…

  34. bi-loe

    FYI….. This songs samples “a little bit of love” by Brenda Russel. The same sample was used by Thalia in “I want you”.

    What total BS. This song sounds exactly like Thalia’s “I Want You.” Plagiarism, much?

    [Reply]

    @Marisa, and i guess Thalia plagiarized the song as well because she sampled it from Brenda Russel’s song “A Little Bit of Love” just like Ariana did ;)

    Way to rip off Mariah’s whole sound for Memoirs of An Imperfect Angel. Maybe her boyfriend Jai’s spamming of his gf is gaining her more fans. She looks hella awkies in the video
