Ariana Grande appeared on this morning's TODAY show on NBC to talk about her debut album "Yours Truly" which dropped today. The album has already hit No. 1 in the U.S. The singer also treated fans to a performance of two tracks off the LP, 'The Way' and 'Tattooed Heart.' Check out the appearance below!
GRANDE, who starred in the original cast of Broadway's '13', teamed up with a diverse bevy of friends for her debut album. Big Sean delivers a magnetic verse on the shimmering "Right There", which fans receive as an instant download with their pre-order of Yours Truly and is already #4 on the iTunes Pop Chart. She also trades irresistible harmonies with The Wanted's Nathan Sykes on her ballad, "Almost Is Never Enough"-also available on the soundtrack for one of the summer's hottest films, Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. In addition, the album includes an unshakable rendition of the Broadway classic, "Popular Song," with multi-platinum international star Mika.
For YOURS TRULY, GRANDE hit the studio with a variety of in-demand writers and producers including the legendary Babyface as well as Harmony [Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, Fantasia]. As a result, the entire tracklisting is a dynamic and diverse affair.
GRANDE rose to immense popularity starring as the beloved Cat Valentine, culminating in her own hit series Sam & Cat. The series premiered on Nickelodeon in June 2013 and is now a bona fide hit for the network. Singing and performing since the age of eight, music remains GRANDE's first love.
