Problem | Ariana Grande feat. Iggy Azalea


After a squeaky clean Nickelodeon image and a rather peaceful debut album, Ariana Grande is coming back kicking with a new edgy look and sound in "Problem."

Looking sexy and sassy on the cover, Grande still hasn't lost any of that golden voice in transition to a horn-filled bop of a track as she belts out, "Head in the clouds, got no weight on my shoulders / I should be wiser and realise that I've got..." in the pre-chorus. The horns follow the recent trend of Top 40 songs like "Thrift Shop" and "Talk Dirty," while the song also incorporates a quiet breakdown featuring whispers of "I've got one last problem without 'cha." 

The inclusion of Iggy Azalea only fuels the greatness of the track. The production style compliments both Grande and Azalea so well, but also follows the popular trends that audiences are attracted to at this time; if it doesn't peak in the top five of the Billboard Hot 100, I'd be shocked.

"Problem" is out now under Republic Records and can be bought on iTunes and other digital download retailers.
