New Music: Ariana Grande – ‘Last Christmas’

Last Christmas

Big things come in small packages. Pint-sized diva Ariana Grande gets in the holiday spirit by updating Wham!’s “Last Christmas” for 2013. The 20-year-old songstress gives the ’80s classic a makeover, complete with a hip-hop beat, produced by the Rascals.

She plans to release a new holiday song each week leading up to Christmas.

Unwrap her festive gift below.

    She can sing but she is copying Mariah Carey’s singing too much. I can’t take her serious as an artists because all I hear is a copycat who is trying to sound like Mariah and I’m not even a big Mariah Carey fan.

    @Ryan, Not with you on that, I like her sound, Mariah…not so much anymore. If they were so much alike, I don’t think that would be the case.

    I don’t mind her copying Mariah.. even though Ariana claims she’s Ariana.. but this girls really talented and her new album was great.. Sadly, I think it’s not being promoted properly (or she probably isn’t selling enough sex smh at the industry).. her singles aren’t charting as high as “the way” did and they’re rushing everything (new album in February -_-) only way her career is going to reach another high is if she wins a grammy(s) in 2014.. but mainstream wise.. i’d be pissed if she doesn’t become bigger than Selena Gomez (hate that hoe)but 1 lp and 1 ep in 3 months.. thats rushing it.. doubt it’s gonna happen

    “….Selling enough sex”

    She’s 12 though but Adele already prove that you don’t need sex to sell

    @OG, I don’t think its rushing, she just wants to put out the songs that she loves. She’s only just getting started, can we give her and her team a chance to really get going. I think she knows exactly what she wants, and what she’s needs for her career, and if not, then she has time to figure it out.

    I think the comments, about her “copying” off of Mariah is a bit much. Especially, when people are saying, she is trying to sound like Mariah. Thats like literally the stupidest thing, that someone could say. I personally love Ariana. I think she is an amazing vocalist, and songwriter. Her fans, ALWAYS want more. Im so excited she is doing this Christmas Musical Countdown, and she has a new album in February. For the people saying, she is rushing her music, and won’t achieve much for doing, I have to disagree. Ariana has one of the best Managers… Scooter Braun, Manager of Justin Bieber. Look how far he has come. I personally love the song, and look forward for everything she has new, and coming.

    @Aaron M, How is the “she’s trying to sound like” Mariah comments too much when she keeps copying Mariah? Not only did her video for Baby I resemble a throw back Mariah video, but her runs and singing style are a knock-off. Let’s not forget her releasing a video of her covering Mariah’s “Emotions” which is when she really started to take off. The comments are valid, and she needs to find her own lane and stop trying to drive in Mariah’s because it’ll be played out quickly (if it hasn’t already). I could even go as far as saying she’s copying JB by releasing a song every week, but knowing they have the same manager I won’t. She hasn’t done anything ORIGINAL thus far, which is sad since she has a beautiful voice.

    @Candice, The only part that I disagree with is the “copying JB by releasing a song every week.” Justin Bieber hasn’t been the only artist to do this. I do agree with everything else though. When I hear Ariana sing all I hear is Mariah. She’s a beautiful singer, but she needs to find her own style.

    @Aaron M, And her fan’s want more of her, since she’s been promising them music for so many years, and now she’s giving it to them. So what if she’s not killing it on all the charts, or getting all the awards. She’s just getting started, and has plenty of time to do more. But more than anything, she just loves writing, singing, and sharing with those who want it. Its not always about charts & awards, its love of music and fan’s.

    Not keen on this. I don’t think it’s as good as the original and I don’t really like the original to be honest.

    The quality is there,no doubt about that but it really sounds like Mariah…like a LOT i got confused at one point but then again maybe the label was excited that they found someone like Mariah,,cuz the real Mariah doesn’t focus that much to be on top.Idk…sounds like Mariah.

    Judging by the response she got at the AMA’s, Ariana has what it takes. That standing ovation wasn’t just for the performance she gave, it was because game recognizes game. Those industry people & artists know a good thing when they hear it. That’s part of why she got that award in the first place.

    Those who complain, are not experts in the field, just Simon Cowell wanna be’s. The difference is, “Simon is one of those industry people, who’s qualified to judge talent.” People on the outside looking in, are not!
