It’s a rarity in todays world to find an artist whom sounds the same live as they do on their album. Ariana Grande doesn’t sound the same, she better live. Ariana Grande-Butera released her debut album Yours Truly in August 2013 and the buzz has yet to fade away due to her amazing talent.

Grande got the lead roll playing Cat Valentine on Nickelodeons hit show Victorious, which premiered March 2010 and jump started here career.
Many people compare Grande to Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston, and rightfully so, when she has a 4 octave range that can reach an E7(for those who don’t know, lets just say you can’t go much higher then that). “The Way”, her first single featuring Mac Miller debuted at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on April 5, 2013. This making the first top ten arrival for a lead female artist making her first Hot 100 appearance since 2008. The rest of the artists album is stated to be inspired by her idols like Amy Winehouse, Mariah Carey, and many other monumental women in the music industry. This album continues to break records, as of yesterday, February 10th, 2014, “Yours Truly” hit #1 in Japan and ties the record for highest charting debut album by an international female artist….EVER!
