After the first two singles, "The Way" featuring rapper Mac Miller and "Baby I", which she both performed in her debut appearance at the recently-concluded MTV Video Music Awards, Ariana Grande releases another track from her first studio album "Yours Truly" which will hit U.S. stores Tuesday, September 3.
The third official single is entitled "Lovin' It", which like "Baby I", is co-produced by ten-time Grammy Award-winning R'n'B musician Babyface along with Antonio Dixon, The Rascals and Rickey "SlikkMuzik" Offord. It features the 20-year-old singer's wide vocal range, reminiscent of pop/R'n'B diva Mariah Carey's vocals, an artist with whom Babyface has also worked with in the past, notably in the hit duet "Everytime I Close My Eyes".
Besides Carey, Grande's debut album has been inspired by late great artists, Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse, talented vocalists Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera as well as pop superstars Madonna and Katy Perry. It has garnered early success with lead single "The Way" already in Top 40 and iTunes' top 20 hit, and its music video already been viewed more than 67 million times on YouTube.
The petite songstress is not only experiencing great times in her career but reportedly also in her personal life, rumored to be dating The Wanted's Nathan Sykes. Although Grande is careful not to spill the beans about their budding romance, Sykes said, "I'm the happiest I have been in my life."
