New Music: Ariana Grande f/ Big Sean – ‘Right There’

Yours Truly

Ariana Grande scored a hit with Mac Miller and now she enlists another rapper close to her heart, Big Sean, for “Right There.” If you liked “The Way,” then you’ll love this hip-hop-flavored tune, which features Ariana’s breezy vocals over a sample of Lil’ Kim’s “Crush on You.”

Just last month, the Nickelodeon star rapped along to “Guap” during her visit to Power 106.

Her debut Yours Truly arrives Sept. 3 and can now be pre-ordered on iTunes.

Listen to “Right There” and see the tracklisting below.

    @Cheese, it doesn’t need to be said. You can hear it all throughout her voice and the way she layers. It’s not even about her faux whistle notes

    @Cheese, Can u think before u write? Why should an artist say something like that… she is trying to hard like miley cyrus is trying to be the next white rihanna.

    [Reply]

    Cheese Reply:

    @Brian, I actually did think that through! Multiple artists say that they got their style from being influenced by other artists. I do admit she sounds like Mariah at certain parts of her songs, but Mariah isn’t even doing anything right now. Mariah has her time and appreciation, give Ariana hers.

    @Cheese, Mariah Carey had her time you’re right she can also be inspired by her or a fan but this doesn’t mean that she should do exactly what Mariah did. In my opinion,every artist should have a own style otherwise I can’t respect them because it’s not hard to be a copycat. Ariana didn’t started her career like that after she had success with The Way people started to treat her like Mariah Carey and after that she is following the Mariah Carey way musical.

    @Ryan, When she was a little girl she sounded like this. This is her singing voice! Why just throw away those perfect high-pitched noises just to avoid being compared to someone else? She can use her talent the way she wants to. She makes amazing songs and has an amazing voice. Those notes are beautiful and a gift that she shouldn’t just put aside just because Mariah Carey can hit them too.

    Usher Reply:

    @Brian, She sounds like her yes, maybe Mariah is/was her inspiration so what? She is talented and people like you don’t appreciate it. All I can say is go girl! You will be very huge soon.

    yall need to shut the hell up she don’t even sound like Mariah but there is similarities .. when Mariah sings and when Ariana sings you can tell the difference .. yall did the same shxt when leona lewis first started just cause they have smooth vocals and can do whistle notes .. MARIAH is an artist Ariana looks up to and inspires her so obviously your going to hear similarities in their voices

    i am LOVING this girl … TRUE talent and GREAT vocals .. i’m tired of all these Nickolodean/Disney stars who think they can sing and make it a career *selena gomez* .. the only two who acutally have talent are Ariana and Demi .. Miley’s mess needs to stop.

    I don’t think she is trying to be like mariah just because she sounds like her. Her idols are Imogen Heap & India Arie

    Trey Reply:

    @Paradise, she is. she will go high with her vocals like mariah did. i mean where she screams like: hooooohoooooooo … this is typical mariah style

    [Reply]

    Onika Miraj Reply:

    @Trey, So she should just stop making those, as you call them, “screams like: hooooohoooooooo” (wtf), just because they sound like Mariah Carey’s voice? That’s dumb! Shit, if I could hit those notes, I would make a whole track just “a-hoo-hoo-hoo-ing” away.

    @Onika Miraj, me too, boo! “a-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!!” and the adlibs would be more “a-hoo’s” as well.

    all these Mariah comparisons are stupid, if anything they just prove how great Ariana is. Everyone needs to let her be her own artist and appreciate this girls talent, she has potential to be amazing. She kinda already is.

    [Reply]

    Ryan Reply:

    @Dave, Thats exactly the point from these people who say Mariah Carey. She isn’t her “OWN ARTIST”. She isn’t even trying something new.

    [Reply]

    Dave Reply:

    @Ryan, she’s bringing back the 90′s female R&B sound we haven’t heard in a while and she’s doing a GREAT job of it better than anyone else right now so she’s definitely doing her own thing if you ask me.

    @Dave, Bringing something which we had isn’t doing her own thing. The same with Lana Del Rey. She is copying the 70s/80s.

    She’s not trying to be like Mariah if that’s how god created her vocals. Mariah has a 5 octave Ariana has 4. They’re just similar. They’re both talented. MC is just tired and need to retire.

    People stop tripping over the comparisons to Mariah. People do this to everyone now-a-days. She is not the “new” Mariah and will never/could never be! There will never be another, and honestly I don’t think she’s trying to be a new “Mariah”. I can see the comparisons cause her voice is very similar, but come on.. We all know the truth, you can’t come for a LEGEND!

  15. Morgan

    Really good song … super excited to hear her collaboration with Nathan. He’s got the best voice, hands down of The Wanted, and I think that’s partly because he was influenced by Boyz II Men.

  22. Onika Miraj

    And if anything this is just what everyone needs. She doesn’t even make basic ass songs about basic ass things like other famous teenagers do *cough* Miley Fenty, I mean, Cyrus.

    We could use a young Mariah Carey. She’s got a whole career ahead of her. Plus, *no shade lol* ain’t nobody checking for Mariah Carey, so it’s a good thing that there’s a new, upbeat, younger version of her; and this version doesn’t even make horrible music and she’s beautiful as hell.

    Frankly, I love all of her songs. I will be buying the album, hun-ty.

    Haters are always gonna find something to hate on. This was a good song. She is a great singer and Sean delivered. Is Mariah Carey the only singer aloud to hit high notes? Who cares if it sounds similar, everyone has someone they’re influenced by, get over it. At least she’s making good music and not that overproduced techno or bubblegum garbage some of these pop stars make.

    [Reply]

  24. Jrizzel88

    Forget comparing her to Mariah…the similarities are obvious. Everyone new reminds us of someone before, it’s apart of the business. My concern is whether she can have a successful career only making songs with hip-hop samples? I hope this isn’t the follow up single to The Way…another song with a hip-hop sample smh

    [Reply]

  25. Kyle

    This is her best song yet IMO. The sample is everything.

    [Reply]

  26. Ant

    Comparing this young little chick to the legend that is Mariah Carey is insanity! All this girl’s songs sound virtually interchangeable with one another. Mariah’s debut album had classics like “Vision of Love,” “Can’t Let Go,” “Someday”, etc…..songs that still get played on radio over 23 years later! You think songs like “The Way” or “Baby I” are gonna be remembered past this year? If she wants to be taken seriously maybe she should get some better songs cause these little nursery rhymes are microwaveable hits that’ll be forgotten within 6 months.

    I love this track. She sounds great. Big Sean snaps on the track. It’s if-I-fall-I-know-you-go-me type of thing going on. Not a fresh idea, but refreshing delivery nonetheless, from two young talents, that I’m not tired of yet. Lol

    Mariah Carey can sing circles around this little girl! Y’all better get a grip. Mariah has had soul from the beginning. This little girl can sing but to be compared, let alone mentioned in the same sentence of the likes of MC or Whitney Houston is laughable! ctfu.

    @Julez, that’s funny! Mariah is a living legend! And has nothing to prove but she can indeed sing circles around this little pop tart. Maybe Ariana can begin writing and composing and producing her material and then the comparisons could begin! And if Ariana was anything like MC, all 3 of the songs she released would’ve hit #1 on Billboard Hot 100! like all 5 of MCs first singles. And she should have her album reach #1 as well, like Mariah’s. Also be nominated and win a couple of Grammys, like Mariah did! Ariana can sing but she is not on or near MCs level as a vocalist. But she is jocking MC hard tho! Hitting a couple of high notes ain’t shit! I think DJ Clue said it best “often imitated, NEVER duplicated” #BOWDOWN now #sit

    Flurry Reply:

    @Flurry, MARIAH CAREY #QUEEN! ARIANA maybe #PRINCESS or #WANNABE ?? Ariana needs to come harder than this if she wants to be something in the area of MC! be an individual. stop trynna sing Mariah and Whitney on YouTube and then she may get more respect as an artist! but right now she sounds real karaoke! ctfu

    [Reply]

    Julez Reply:

    @Flurry, Mariah can’t sing anymore though! Yes she accomplished so much but her vocals are shot. She lipsyncs because she can’t hit the same notes while standing and doing nothing else on stage. LOL.

    Mariah has never been a performer, she’s a vocalist. She needs to hang it up. How many remix versions of Beautiful is she going to release?

    No one is checking for those.

  40. Wow

    You guys seriously need to stop saying she’s TRYING to be MC. Mariah Carey may be her inspiration, but she’s not trying to BE her. Besides, Ariana is a NEW artist. She’s probably just trying to find herself and her sound like most new artist tend to do. I’m sure if she keeps hearing the Mariah Carey feedback she’ll try to switch things up so she can be known as Ariana Grande. Not “the girl who sounds like MC.”

    Why is there so much hate on this post and many other posts on this site? Every other comment, is a diss on another artist or person. That’s not cool . It is just plain simple and common of people to treat others like that. I,personally appreciate MC For her talents, the same go Ariana Grande, who the post is really about. This is a good song, She knows how to croon over a good ol’ throwback vibe song! Big Sean did his thing too!! I can’t wait for her album! She has a bright future in music and her acting. And, to adress all the other comments about Lil’ Kim, Nicki Minaj, Miley etc, Why do fans have to dump on other artists? they are doing they’re jobs, and loving what they do. So I think its time to stop all the hate and get to appreciating!!! (:
