Amoeba Review

08/25/2014

When Ariana Grande emerged with her debut, Yours Truly, it was easy to get excited. Here was a new, young Mariah with real pipes that outshined her cover-girl looks. But the frenetic Disney-pop of her debut occasionally grated. On follow-up My Everything, Grande and her producers have dropped any remembrance of the family-approved teen star with an adult (yet not oversexed) album that lives up to the promise of her voice with a set of smart, millennially charged pop songs. Now that “she’s become who she really are,” as she sings on “Break Free,” Grande sounds liberated and self-assured amid dazzling production that touches on EDM and hip-hop without losing sight of those mammoth pop hooks Grande sinks her teeth into. She’ll give vocal coaches a thrill with her performance on summer anthem “Problem,” her duet with Iggy Azalea. The album is kind of like her hair—sure, it cascades down her back in perfect curls, and you know a bunch of people had their hands in it, but what matters is how effortless it all looks. And sure, anyone can work to put a few great singles together, as she does here, but the in-between songs reveal an artist who is going at 100% all the time, as tracks like “One Last Time” and “Why Try” reveal, with powerful vocal performances that offer some breathing room for Grande to get breathy and vulnerable. At times you want her to reveal a bit more character—it’s still tough to gauge who Grande is, other than a massively talent and confident young woman, something that doesn’t quite jibe with the generic lovesick lyrics she’s saddled with. So while she hasn’t come close to achieving a Beyonce-level marriage of pop thrills and personality, she gets the first part of that equation down pat on My Everything.
