Happy Ear Day! Ariana Grande’s New Song Break Free Is Here
Ariana Grande celebrated her 21st birthday yesterday by taking over MTV’s retired daily show, TRL. The MMVA performer brought the show back for one night, hosting in front of a live studio audience and debuting Break Free, the second song from her upcoming sophomore album.
Grande worked with electronic artist Zedd on the bass heavy dance track, showing off her incredible vocal range on the single ladies (or gentlemen’s) anthem.
The song comes off as a bit repetitive in the beginning, but features a surprising breakdown near the end. While it doesn’t feel like an obvious slam dunk on the charts in comparison to Grande’s Problem, I think Break Free will be a track that grows on listeners.
Ariana Grande’s album My Everything is set to drop on August 25.

Kanye West boastfully rapped “I forgot better shit than you ever thought of” on his 2005 track “Diamonds From Sierra Leone.” It’s a line that comes to mind repeatedly when listening to Carly Rae Jepsen’s new album, E•MO•TION B-Sides. Made up of songs that didn’t make Jepsen’s 2015 album E•MO•TION, these eight (initially) scrapped songs are […]
