New Music: Ariana Grande f/ Iggy Azalea – ‘Problem’

Problem

She topped the charts with her debut Yours Truly, and seven months later, Ariana Grande is back with the first single off her sophomore album.

After debuting the song at the Radio Disney Music Awards, the pint-sized powerhouse rolls out the studio version of “Problem” to iTunes. A carefree Ariana declares her independence on the infectious horn-heavy jam, which features an empowering verse from Iggy Azalea and a whispering Big Sean on the hook.

“Head in the clouds / Got no weight on my shoulders / I should be wiser and realize that I’ve got / One less problem without ya,” she sings.

Just minutes after its release, the song shot to No. 1 on iTunes.

Does Ariana have another hit on her hands? Push play on “Problem” below.

    @Kevin Ocean, Why is Iggy’s verse in this song better than her album though? Poor judgement of Marianah to choose to transition into the bridge right after the rap too. Horrible timing, and the song’s momentum is zapped.

    I hear (and see) no growth in Marianah’s “artistry”, this sounds like it was some song recorded for the first album, but because it didn’t fit the sound, she just re purposed it. Is recycling going to be a theme? She’s so hackneyed.

    @Mandela Barb, Bitch you mad cause The New Classic is harder and more hip hop than any album Nicki has put out ? lmfaoo Yall so made that another female rapper is mainstream it’s ridiculous. That’s how you know Nicki aint shit if yall scared of any upcoming female rapper.

    @Jessica, iTunes #1 don’t mean that it’s a hit. Her fans bought the track even with a pre oder. She is musikalisch a flop because nothing is original what she records… she is just lucky because of her fans who support her.

    This song is not all that great. Much better songs on her debut that this. I find the production annoying and voice top is just annoying IMO. Weak. Still checking f

    The combo of horns and Ariana’s screeching will make my ears bleed if this takes over radio. It wont’ be cute on multiple plays. IGGY killed it. I wish they gave this song to a better vocalist.

    It’s kinda cheesy. Now I understand why she premiered it at Disney. And her voice is loud af!! Like sometimes less is more. Bring it down a notch.

    Why the fuck do people keep referring to her “Disney career”. The one that didn’t exist. She was on Nickelodeon. They are much less controlling and a different dynamic where all actors don’t have to be able to sing. People are using Disney with a derogatory connotation to equate her music to teeny bobber bullshit. It’s a good track and she has vocal ability. I don’t care where she came from, but I want her to stay. Who else is doing what she’s doing right now and she’s one of the few artist ushering in a new period in music where vocals matter again. People are always talking about “real music” but most people don’t know a thing. Technically she’s always been great. Get it straight people technique and voice are two different things so if you don’t like her voice that’s one thing, but her ability is clearly there.

    This song is excellent, this girl’s vocal ability is great but I could’ve done without Iggy to be honest.

    yawn this song is a bore. Iggy did nothing for it. Only reason it’s #1 is because a bunch of 13 year old girls with they daddy’s credit card buying this shit.

    I’m so happy for Ariana this song is a departure from her first album. I loved Yours Truly and I will probably love the new album too because she is a real artist who can sing. And Iggy did greats as well. Haven’t heard her album yet but mu favor so far has to be “fancy”. Great Collaboration.
