Grade: A

Ariana Grande’s smooth, melodic voice paired with R&B beats on her new album “Yours Truly” makes for a great set of tunes to listen to this fall. At this point, we’ve probably all heard her single “The Way,” but the Spanglish version on the album brings a whole new dimension to this song that sets it apart from the run-of-the-mill R&B songs on the radio. These days, it’s difficult to find a singer that actually has a great voice, but when Grande sings, it takes me back to “The Emancipation of the Mimi” from Mariah Carey’s glory days. Seriously, can we talk about how Ariana and Mariah are voice twins? Aside from the great vocals on this album, I love the features from Big Sean and Mac Miller. There was a lot of anticipation for this album with high expectations, and Grande delivered.
