Ariana Grande is adorable! She is her generation’s Mariah Carey. Yes, I said it! No other young female singer is in her realm right now. She’s got the beats, the vocals, the relevant and equally talented featured R&B/rap artists to collaborate with, the great taste in music directors, costuming, and featured actors in her music videos, such as for this one (Patrick Schwarzenegger! Elizabeth Gillies!). If there is going to be anyone to bring back the era of Mariah Carey inspired music post-Music Box, it is going to be Ariana Grande.
