Ariana Grande is on top of the world right now! She recently got married, released the deluxe version of her album, Positions, and is killing it in the music industry. Ariana can perfect any music genre from bubblegum pop to sexy R&B and that’s just another reason we stan Ariana Grande! With 6 albums under her belt, not all songs can be singles in each era. New to the Ariana fandom or just need some new tunes to hear? No need to worry! We’re here to give you the rundown on seven songs that deserved to be singles and what songs you need to add to your playlists!
Why does no one talk about ‘bad idea’? It literally has it all; bass, vocals, and even an amazing orchestral moment. ‘bad idea’ is one of our favorite songs off Ariana’s fifth studio album, thank u, next. It’s the perfect song to sing in the shower, in the mirror as you’re getting ready to go out, or even in the car with your friends. It’s a fun and catchy song that will just never get old.
‘just like magic’
Even though the Positions era isn’t over yet, this is a song that should definitely be the next single! ‘just like magic’ is a fun song that deserves to be heard by all. Ariana takes us through a day in her life as she explains her meetings, activities, time in the studio, and the idea of manifestation. It’s kinda like ‘7 rings’ “I want it, I got it.”
‘everytime’ comes off Sweetener, Ari’s fifth album that is a mix of pop and R&B. It’s a song that definitely needs more love! It has lyrics that’ll definitely be stuck in your head and beats that you hum all day long.
‘Break Your Heart Right Back’ (feat. Childish Gambino)
‘Break Your Heart Right Back’ samples ‘Mo Money Mo Problems’ by The Notorious B.I.G. and ‘I’m Coming Out’ by Diana Ross, which really brings out the R&B rhythm in the song. With the Childish Gambino feature, we are surprised that it was never released as a single, or even got a music video. Two stars coming together to create a music video for an awesome song? Count us in! On her most recent tour, this song was still on the setlist!
Ariana has come a long way since her debut album Yours Truly. Her music has definitely evolved from pure pop to rhythmic R&B and we love that! Taking it back, ‘Lovin’ It’ was radio gold with its bubblegum pop beats and vocals only Ariana could perfect!
Having a tough day? Need a quick pick me up? Let Ariana Grande remind you that everything’s gonna be alright. The song has such a great message and an overall catchy tune that more people need to hear. This song sounded so good live on the 2017 Dangerous Woman Tour with a dance break in the middle, please take us back!
‘bloodline’ is another song that deserved more love! It was taken off the 2019 Sweetener World Tour setlist, and we really missed out on not hearing it in person (only through YouTube videos). In the song, we first hear Ariana’s grandmother, aka Nonna, talking about how she can’t find the right kind of hearing aids. The song has a sexy beat, and it’s the perfect song to dance to! This song definitely deserved a music video, for sure!
