Ariana’s people selected a mixed bag of songs for My Everything. We have some straight-up bangers that will be associated with Ariana’s legacy for years to come. We also have to endure a few generic, meaningless tracks that serve a purpose of padding out the tracklist.
I’ve taken a slightly stricter stance than her record label to present to you a cut version of 11 tracks to enjoy.
Songs cut: Intro, Be My Baby, Just A Little Bit Of Your Heart, and Hands On Me.
Best song: Break Free
Ariana Grande released one of the best pop songs of the century, and Dangerous Woman was the album that came with it.
I’ve talked before about single-artists versus album-artists. Ariana falls firmly into the former category. The album IS good, but five of the songs fail to make any lasting connection. Still, ten songs remain which is just one less track than her previous album.
Songs cut: Moonlight, Leave Me Lonely, Everyday, I Don’t Care, and Knew Better/ Forever Boy.
Song cut before the album was even released: Remember Focus? This carbon copy of Problem was supposed to be the album’s lead single but was quietly swept under the rug when everyone realized that it, well… sucked.
Best song: Into You
