The song I’m jammin’ to today is ‘The Way’ by Ariana Grande ft. Mac Miller. There are so many reasons why I love this song!
Reason #1: I love the beat on the song. It samples Big Pun‘s ‘Still Not A Player‘, and that song samples Brenda Russell‘s ‘A Little Bit Of Love’.
Reason #2 : Ariana’s voice is beautiful! She has the ranges and octaves reminiscent to Mariah Carey!
Reason #3 : I love the Mac Miller feature. It gives the song that early 2000’s Ja Rule & Ashanti, Fat Joe & JLo feel to it.
Reason #4 : Ariana & Mac are just adorable together!
Mac Miller starts off:
Say, I’m thinking ’bout her every second, every hour
Do my singing in the shower
Picking petals off the flowers like
Do she love me, do she love me not?
I ain’t a player, I just crush a lot
While Ariana sings:
You give me that kinda something
Want it all the time, need it everyday
On a scale of one to ten I’m at 100
Never get enough, I can’t stay away
If you want, I got it, I got it everyday
You can get whatever you need from me
Stay by your side, I’ll never leave you
And I ain’t going nowhere cause you’re a keeper
This song is definitely a hit!
