LISTEN: Chris Brown – Don’t Be Gone Too Long (feat. Ariana Grande)

The full version of Chris Brown’s ‘Don’t Be Gone Too Long’ record has finally arrived. The 3-and-half-minute long track, which was expected to feature Ariana Grande, can be found at the No. 15 spot on Chris’ sixth solo LP ‘X’ dropping next week. Produced by Jean Baptiste, Free School & Babydaddy.

‘Don’t Be Gone Too Long’ was one of the more anticipated songs from ‘X’ because it was originally said to feature Ariana Grande. For whatever reason, she doesn’t appear on the retail copy of the album to the disappointment of many. Regardless, Chris still delivers a quality track that will be on repeat for quite some time.

’X’ is due out on September 16th. The long-awaited project features additional collaborations by Chris with artists like Lil Wayne, Akon, R. Kelly, Trey Songz, Jhene Aiko, and others. Production is handled by Diplo, NicNac, DJ Camper, and Mel & Mus. Pre-order ‘X’ on iTunes and stream ‘Don’t Be Gone Too Long’ below.

Ariana Grande’s ‘My Everything’ debuts at #1

It’s Grande’s second No. 1 album in less than a year, following her ‘Yours Truly’ debut.

Ariana Grande’s new album My Everything has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, giving the 21-year-old pop singer two No. 1 albums in less than a year. She’s the first woman to debut at No. 1 with her first two albums since 2010.

The rest of the new Billboard 200 chart’s top 10, along with My Everything’s official sales figure for the week ending Aug. 31 (as compiled by Nielsen SoundScan data), will be revealed on Wednesday, Sept. 3.

My Everything, which was released on Aug. 25, is the follow-up to Grande’s first album, Yours Truly. The latter came out on Sept. 2, 2013, and also opened atop the Billboard 200. Grande is the first woman since Susan Boyle to see her first two albums debut at No. 1. Boyle did it with I Dreamed a Dream (released in 2009) and The Gift (2010).

My Everything features three singles that have reached the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart: “Problem” featuring Iggy Azalea (which peaked at No. 2), “Break Free” featuring Zedd (No. 4) and her collaboration with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj, “Bang Bang” (No. 6). (“Bang Bang” is only available on the deluxe version of the album.) On the Hot 100 chart dated Aug. 30, all three of those songs were in the top 10 at the same time, making Grande only the second lead female artist to have three concurrent top 10 hits. (Only Adele, among lead-billed women, had done it previously.)

Ariana Grande gets interviewed by SiriusXM

Ariana Grande gave another interview, fulfilling their agenda after the official release of their second album, “My Everything”. The singer was interviewed by three broadcasters who run SiriusXM Radio, located in New York.

In the interview, Grande talked about many subjects, relaxed, talked about her love for horror movies, her brother, who is in the world’s most famous reality show, about her presentation at the VMAs and even gave reasons to buy her album on iTunes. Listen to the interview below:

Ariana Grande explains Big Sean rumours with Ryan Seacrest

Like her music,  Ariana Grande is inescapable.

The pop princess currently has three singles dominating the airwaves, she performed two songs at the MTV Video Music Awards, walked away with a Moon Man for Best Pop Video for “Problem” with Iggy Azalea, and on Monday, the 21-year-old finally released her highly-anticipated album, My Everything.

Though her sophomore LP is projected to rule the charts its opening week, the world-at-large is still buzzing about her VMAs marathon, in which she opened the proceedings with “Break Free” by emerging from a spaceship, and concluded with “Bang Bang” alongside Jessie J and Nicki Minaj, who was clutching onto her noncompliant dress.

As Nicki’s ill-fated costume change continues to be a widely discussed keynote from the trifecta’s performance, On Air with Ryan Seacrest spoke to the former Nickelodeon star to get her opinion on the rapper’s major wardrobe malfunction.

“I don’t care. That was amazing. She’s such a pro for coming on, holding her [stuff] together like that and just, like, living and rapping and keeping it together. That was amazing,” Ariana praised. “I thought she did incredibly well, especially given the circumstance.

Knee-high boots and skimpy rompers were also the stars of Ariana’s back-to-back spectacles. If you’re having trouble reading between her new wardrobe and lyrics, the former Nickelodeon star is making — if she hasn’t already — a transition from her childhood career to a full-blown mature pop star. The passage isn’t always a successful attempt, so Ryan questioned the songstress how she effortlessly crossed over.

“I don’t really know. I mean, I’ve just been so focused on music. I really feel like focusing on the music and really, like, letting the music tell my story, and introducing myself with music, and letting that be the statement sort of was it, I guess,” she said. “I wanted people to be talking about the music not anything else.”

Her My Everything record is in fact powered by tracks that introduce a coming of age. Ariana’s ballads “My Everything” and “Best Mistake” — which she revealed are her “two favorites” on the album — boasts mature relationship troubles and adult ambitions. In the interview, the pop-soul singer also said that fans can get their hands on remixes and exclusives that aren’t available with the iTunes copy by downloading the free messaging Line app.
