SONG OF THE DAY (SUNDAY FUNDAY): Ariana Grande ft Zedd – Break Free
The Nickelodeon star turned pop princess is gradually growing up, with the edgy and sexy (for her) duet with Iggy Azalea crossing over to become her first pop hit. Time for her to hit the clubs with a full-on EDM track. While she has had club remixes in the past (“Right There,” “Baby I,” “The Way”), this is her first full-on original dance production, courtesy of Zedd. It sounds pretty much like you would expect, a very pop production with excellent vocals (comparisons to early Mariah Carey have been abundant) and so many catchy hooks that you would think Zedd wrote this for Katy Perry instead. With the radio success of “Problems” and the recent Zedd collaborations, this will no doubt get massive success and probably lead to even more major collaborations for Zedd. Flashback to when BT worked with ‘N Sync, we can expect a lot more of that over the next few months.
