Music: Ariana Grande - Problem (Feat. Iggy Azalea)

2014-05-05 12:00


In a nutshell: 21-year-old singer/songwriter Ariana Grande's debut album went straight to number one on the billboard charts last year, cementing her as one of the most exciting young artists on the planet. Now she has dropped the first single off her upcoming sophomore album, entitled Problems. As the first taste of the new album for her fans, will it be another Ariana Grande hit or just a problem child?

What’s it like: It's almost as if they rewrote the Jay Z classic 99 Problems, replacing the swear words with saxophone beats and Jay Z with a girl. There's even a nod to the Jay Z classic in Iggy Azalea's rap "I got 99 problems but you won't be one".

Fave Bit: Ariana has an amazing voice which can reach as high as the Brixton tower and she really shows the strength of that voice when she cuts into the chorus " I should be wiser and realise I've got..." Goosebumps

Rating:  No doubt about it, Ariana keeps Problems together. Her angelic voice turns an infectious sax beat into very possibly another number one.  4 /5
