Ariana Grande has been on fire. Her smash single Problem (feat. Iggy Azalea) soared to the top of the Billboard charts last summer, and she followed it up with another smash hit when Jessie J released the surefire hit song Bang Bang (feat. Grande and Nicki Minaj).”
Her career started in the Broadway musical 13, before landing the role of Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon television series Victorious in 2009. Soon after she starred in the spin-off Sam & Cat, but after one season it was cancelled. The young actress then turned her attention to music full-time.
As one of the hottest up-and-comers in music right now, thanks to the smash-hit success of her debut album, Yours Truly, the 21-year-old is often said to have the makings of a young Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey — including her famous four octave vocal range. She even performed Houston’s iconic hit I Have Nothing with legendary producer and writer David Foster during her Honeymoon Tour earlier this year.
Her multiple talents and successes have redefined the meaning of a star. With over eight million Twitter followers, a growing fan base called “Arianators,” keep an eye out on her impending success.
