#100 Ariana Grande feat. Big Sean - “Right There”
Brady: At first I wondered why Ariana Grande was constantly fanning herself throughout the entirety of the video and then I remembered that she’s THE HOTTEST THING IN POP MUSIC RIGHT NOW. Blowing up so much she’ll be Ariana Venti by 2014. Paycheck so many digits, yeah she be making Star Bucks. 8/10
Cory: OUR GENERATION’S MOST CHERISHED TREASURE HAS RETURNED FROM HER THRONE ON HIGH TO BLESS US WITH ANOTHER JAM! Look, let’s not kid ourselves, this song sounds just like “The Way.” Here’s the thing, though - “The Way” is so so good. You guessed it, this song’s good too! MAY YOUR REIGN AS POP’S SUPREME LEADER BE A LONG AND FRUITFUL ONE, DEAREST ARIANA. 8/10
Karin: Ariana sounds like she has something caught in her throat that makes it impossible for her to finish the words she sings. She has a good voice, listen I can hear that, but she has nothing that makes her interesting. She just does her best Mariah Carey impression. But Mariah has lambs and butterflies, and crazy, and that woman who puts her shoes on for her. Ariana is an empty child doll vessel. And this song sounds old. 4/10
Brian: Every time I hear Our Generation’s Most Cherished Treasure sing I imagine a tiny butterfly with the face of Mariah Carey emerging from her mouth. And then she and that butterfly sing in perfect squealing harmony over stellar 90s tracks. Quietly excelling, then battling literal demons. Fight on and sing on, you beautiful miniature Constantine. 8/10
One of my favorite things about Chart Throb is how much the guys adore Ariana Grande and how Karin just doesn’t care for her. GOOD CONSISTENT BLOGGIN.
