Who is Ariana Grande?
FAQ | News | Videos
Ariana Grande-Butera is an American singer, songwriter, and actress.
(/ˌɑːriˈɑːnə ˈɡrændiː/; born June 26, 1993)
Her music, much of which is based on personal experiences, has been the subject of widespread media attention, while her four-octave vocal range has received critical acclaim. She has received numerous accolades throughout her career, including two Grammy Awards, one Brit Award, two Billboard Music Awards, three American Music Awards, nine MTV Video Music Awards, and 27 Guinness World Records.
Grande began her music career at age 15 in the 2008 Broadway musical 13. She rose to fame for playing Cat Valentine in the Nickelodeon television series Victorious (2010–2013) and Sam & Cat (2013–2014). Grande signed with Republic Records in 2011 after label executives discovered YouTube videos of her covering songs. Her 1950s doo-wop-influenced pop and R&B debut album, Yours Truly (2013), topped the US Billboard 200, while its lead single, “The Way”, reached the top ten of the US Billboard Hot 100. Grande’s voice and whistle register on the album drew immediate comparisons to those of Mariah Carey.
Musical style and genres
Grande’s music is generally pop and R&B with elements of EDM, hip hop, and trap, the latter first appearing prominently on her Christmas & Chill extended play. While consistently maintaining pop-R&B tones, she has increased incorporation of trap into her music as her career has progressed thanks to her work with record producer Tommy Brown.
She has worked with Brown on every album and stated that “one of the things I love most about working with Tommy is that none of the beats he plays me ever sound the same.” Grande learned how to sound engineer and produce because she loves being hands on during every project, and revealed that Mac Miller taught her how to work with Pro Tools.
Justin Tranter, a recent collaborator, felt inspired to see how involved Grande is in her music “from the writing to the vision to the storytelling and to even engineering and comping her own vocals.” She has co-written several of her songs addressing a wide variety of themes such as love, sex, wealth, breakups, independence, empowerment, self-love and moving on from the past.
Grande’s debut album, Yours Truly was complimented for recreating the R&B “vibe and feel of the 90s” with the help of songwriter and producer Babyface.
Her follow-up, My Everything, was described as an evolution from her debut record with a new sound exploring EDM and electropop genres.
She followed her pop-R&B sound on her third album, Dangerous Woman, which was praised by the Los Angeles Times for adapting to different styles with the reggae-pop “Side to Side”, the dance-pop-influenced “Be Alright”, and the fusion of guitar and trap in “Sometimes”. Her trap-pop sound is heavily featured on her fourth and fifth studio albums, Sweetener and Thank U, Next.
Elias Leight of Rolling Stone believes “with her new album Sweetener, she set her sights on conquering trap, savage basslines and jittery swarms of drum programming.” She also “embraces the sound of hard-bitten Southern hip-hop” exploring elements of funk music with themes of love and prosperity.
Craig Jenkins of Vulture wrote that Grande had changed and approached her style to trap and hip hop, filled with R&B undertones on Thank U, Next, with lyrics about breakups, empowerment, and self-love.
Her sixth album, Positions, expands on the R&B and trap-pop sound of Sweetener and Thank U, Next, with topics about sex and romance.
