If there’s one diva out there whose had quite a fabulous year (besides you, of course), it’s certainly Ms. Ariana-if-you’re-Grande.
Kicking off 2016, the Dangerous Woman served us life with the slinky, sexy title track to her Billboard chart owning album of the same name. The diva-in-training’s third studio effort was met with glowing reviews as well as a handful of smash singles (although no number one yet…sigh), including current hit, “Side to Side” with Ms. Nicki and today’s 2016 groove, the pop music wonderland that was the album’s second single, “Into You,” which is without a doubt one of the best singles of the year.
Produced by Max Martin (naturally), the synth-fully delicious banger is stacked like Pringles with plenty of Grande gusto, which was evident in the cotton candy coated accompanying music video which featured our girl in a scan-duh-lus situation with two handsome gentlemen along with a new hairstyle that wasn’t that tired ass ponytail. Bliss.
But if there’s one moment we’ll never forget about the 2016 era of Ari (besides, well, everything..maybe even Hairspray ), it was her SNL takeover this past March where she simply played and slayed it all. Whether it was her brilliant impressions turn (Celine..Whitney..RiRi…yas) as Tidal intern Chloe;a spot on J.Law impression (she’s a regular person..) or when she struck all those poses vogueing alongside her sleek back up dancers for a performance of Woman ditty, “Be Alright”(next single, please), it all just werked, bish.
And we were certainly into all of what Mizz Grande had to offer in 2016 and it looks like we’ll be for a very long time.
Even if Mariah doesn’t know her either.
