Ariana Grande – ‘Right There’ Feat. Big Sean
The 20-year-old songstress previously flirted with her apparent love for hip-hop on earlier single off her upcoming ‘Yours Truly’ album. That was the Mac Miller-assisted ‘The Way,’ a lovey-dovey jam boasting lyrical cues from Big Pun’s ‘Still Not a Player.’
But on ‘Right There,’ Grande and her production team look to Lil Kim‘s ‘Crush On You’ and its interpolation of the Jeff Lorber Fusion’s ‘Rain Dance.’ That same jazz-funk loop fuels ‘Right There’ and its romantic sentiments, as the burgeoning pop star and Big Sean trade verses about their feelings on relationships. It’s cute, catchy, and sure to get some serious rotation on the radio this fall.
