When the press constantly calls you the next Mariah Carey, it’s only wise to placate them. Ariana Grande continues to channel the “#Beautiful” singer in her latest clip. Whether it’s Carey’s signature short denim shorts, the mismatched prints, outdoor graffiti backdrop or the dancers busting out some old school dance movies, “Baby I” is serving up major 90s realness. It’s a fun visual which should’ve really been released during the summer.
Grande’s debut album Yours, Truly hit the streets this week and immediately shot up to No. 1 on the iTunes album charts. Naturally, Ariana has been everywhere promoting it. One of those engagements saw her performing “Almost Is Never Enough” on Live With Kelly & Michael. Sufficed to say, she slayed it, along with her duet partner The Wanted’s Nathan Sykes. They were giving me Carey-Boyz II Men shivers during it. I really hope the rumors about these two dating are true. They’re just so damn adorable. Check out Ariana’s new visual below along with her wicked live performance.
