Ariana Grande premieres a new song, titled, “Baby I,” the second single from her forthcoming debut studio album, Yours, Truly.
Previously titled Daydreamin’, the album is slated for release in September and is preceded by the lead single “The Way,” featuring Mac Miller. To date, the track has peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has been certified Platinum by the RIAA.
“Baby I” is a great followup to the “The Way,” and it gives me a better taste of what to expect from Your’s Truly. Similar to the lead single, the new single has both urban and pop flavors. In comparison to her contemporaries around the same age, Grande’s vocal ability is more advanced and she shows it off with this mature arrangement.
Earlier this month, Grande’s manager Scooter Braun revealed to MTV that “her album is a throwback to the great R&B of the 90s.” He also shared that the singer may release a second album in the first quarter of next year to “keep the momentum going.”
