Ariana Grande Releases Music Video For ‘Love Me Harder – ft The Weeknd’

Unless you’ve spent this summer under a rock, you’ll undoubtable know the name Ariana Grande by now. Even those of you that don’t, we would bet money that you could recite the lyrics to hits ‘Problem‘ and ‘Break Free‘ without hesitation if asked. After Grande’s recent collaboration with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj on track ‘Bang Bang‘ gained nearly 100 million views on YouTube and momentarily broke the internet, we were kept on the edge of our seats waiting for her next release.

We have now been graced with Ariana’s latest (and highly anticipated) music video for ‘Love Me Harder’ which features the soulful vocals from The Weeknd. Taken from Ariana’s sophomore album ‘My Everything‘, fans have called for this track to become a single, making the arrival of this video is very welcomed.

Pop music as a genre is often plagued with insults and insinuations that pop singers lack vocal ability however Ariana and her powerhouse vocals not only silences the haters, she drowns them out with impeccable belts and vocal maturity far beyond her twenty-ones years of age. If anything, this song is not only a glimpse at what we can look forward to from Ariana as she continues to grow as an artist but another testament to the fact that no genre (especially one as expansive as pop music) should be defined by any one artist or their (or lack there of) of vocal ability.

See the full music video directed by Hannah Lux Davis below! The song is released in the UK on November 30th.

Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj – Bang Bang

Here come the girls! Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj all stormed to #1 on the US iTunes chart with the release of new track  ‘BANG BANG’. The track, which is actually the first single from Jessie J’s forthcoming album, features powerhouse verses from both Jessie and Ariana and an immaculate rap delivered from Nicki Minaj. Jessie-J-Ariana-Grande-Nicki-Minaj-Bang-Bang-2014-1200x1200 The 3 leading ladies all hold previous claim to the #1 spot in the UK or US album charts, so naturally the trio are a combined force to be reckoned with. It might already be August, but this track could just become the summer anthem of 2014.

Jessie wastes no time in letting you know they’ve arrived. Produced by Max Martin, the track maintains its up-tempo beat throughout, transitioning seamlessly through each feature and still somehow sneaking a sample of WHAM’s ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go’ into the chorus.

‘Bang Bang’ stormed the US charts in under 12 hours, so we have no doubt it’ll so the same in the UK when it’s released on 29th September.
