Life and career

1993–2008: Early life and career beginnings

Ariana Grande-Butera was born in Boca Raton, Florida,[7][8] the daughter of Joan Grande, the chief executive officer of Hose-McCann Communications, a telephone and alarm system company,[9][10] and Edward Butera, a graphic design firm owner in Boca Raton.[8][11] Her name was inspired by Princess Oriana from Felix the Cat: The Movie.[12] Grande is of Italian descent.[13] She has an older half-brother, Frankie Grande, who is an actor, dancer and producer,[14] and she is close with her maternal grandmother, Marjorie Grande.[15] Grande's family moved from New York to Florida when her mother was pregnant with her, and her parents separated when she was around 8 or 9 years old.[11]

As a child, Grande performed with the Fort Lauderdale Children's Theater,[16] playing her first role as Annie, as well as performing in the musicals The Wizard of Oz and Beauty and the Beast.[17] At the age of 8, she performed at a karaoke lounge on a cruise ship and with various orchestras such as South Florida's Philharmonic, Florida Sunshine Pops and Symphonic Orchestras, and she made her national television debut singing "The Star-Spangled Banner" for the Florida Panthers.[18] She attended Pine Crest School and North Broward Preparatory School.[19]

By age 13, she became serious about pursuing a music career, though she still concentrated on theater.[20] When she first arrived in Los Angeles to meet with her managers, she expressed a desire to record an R&B album when she was 14: "I was like, 'I want to make an R&B album,' They were like 'Um, that's a helluva goal! Who is going to buy a 14-year-old's R&B album?!'"[11] In 2008, Grande was cast in the supporting role of cheerleader Charlotte in the musical 13 on Broadway,[21] for which she won a National Youth Theatre Association Award.[22] When she joined the musical, Grande left her high school, North Broward Preparatory School, but continued to be enrolled. The school sent materials to her so she could study with tutors.[23] She also sang various times at the New York City jazz club, Birdland.[24]

2009–2013: Breakthrough on Nickelodeon and Yours Truly

Grande in July 2011

Grande auditioned for the Nickelodeon television show Victorious in New York along with 13 co-star Elizabeth Gillies in 2009.[25] In this sitcom set in a performing arts high school, Grande was cast as Cat Valentine.[25] Grande had to dye her hair red every other week for the role because the executive producerDan Schneider, did not want all cast members to be brunettes, and the red hair was also a feature that the network felt would fit the personality of Cat. The show premiered in March 2010 to the second largest audience for a live-action series in Nickelodeon history with 5.7 million viewers.[26][27] The role helped propel Grande to teen idol status, but she was more interested in a music career stating that acting is "fun, but music has always been first and foremost with me."[28] Her character was compared to "Brittany Murphy's performance as the hapless Tai in Clueless" (1995) and described as being "very impressionable and easily swayed" but "generally sweet."[29] Season two premiered in April 2011 to 6.2 million viewers, becoming the highest rated episode of Victorious.[30] In 2010, she played the role of Miriam in the musical Cuba Libre, which was written and produced by songwriter Desmond Child.[31]

After the first season of Victorious wrapped, Grande wanted to focus on her music career and began working on her debut album in August 2010.[32] To strengthen her vocal range, she began working with vocal coach Eric Vetro.[33] She made her first musical appearance on the track "Give It Up" on the soundtrack Victorious: Music from the Hit TV Show in August 2011. While filming Victorious, Grande made several recordings of herself singing covers of songs by AdeleWhitney Houston and Mariah Carey, and she uploaded them to YouTube.[34] A friend of Monte Lipman, CEO of Republic Records, came across one of Grande's videos. Impressed by her vocals, he sent the links to Lipman, who signed her to a recording contract.[11] She released her first single, "Put Your Hearts Up", in December 2011, which was recorded for a teen-oriented pop album that was not issued.[35] She later disowned the track for its bubblegum pop sound, saying that she had no interest in recording music of that genre.[35] The song was later certified gold by the RIAA.[36] Also in 2011, she voiced the fairy, Princess Diaspro, in 13 episodes of the Nickelodeon version of the Italian animated television series Winx Club, appeared in Greyson Chance's music video for a song called "Unfriend You" from his album Hold On 'til the Night, portraying Chance's ex-girlfriend, and voiced the title role in the English dub of the Spanish-language animated film Snowflake, the White Gorilla.[37][38]

A second soundtrack, Victorious 2.0, was released on June 5, 2012 as an extended play, featuring Grande in the song "Don't You (Forget About Me)".[39] After three seasons, Victorious was not renewed.[40] The finale aired in February 2013. The third and final Victorious soundtrack, Victorious 3.0, was released on November 6, 2012, featuring Grande in the song "L.A. Boyz".[41] The music video for "L.A. Boyz" features Grande and Victoria Justice performing in front of their cast mates during an episode of Victorious.[42] In December 2012, Grande collaborated on the single version of "Popular Song", a duet with British singer and songwriter Mika.[43] She also starred over the holiday season as Snow White in a pantomime-style musical theatre production called A Snow White Christmas, together with Charlene Tilton and Neil Patrick Harris, at the Pasadena Playhouse.[44]

Meanwhile, Nickelodeon created an iCarly and Victorious spin-off starring Jennette McCurdy and Grande.[45] The buddy sitcom, titled Sam & Cat, paired Grande and McCurdy as roommates who form an after-school babysitting business, reprising their respective roles as Cat Valentine from Victorious and Sam Puckett from iCarly.[46] The pilot aired on June 8, 2013, and the show was immediately picked up by the network.[47] The following month, Nickelodeon doubled Sam & Cat's original 20-episode order for season one, making it a 40-episode season.[48] Despite its success in the ratings, the series was canceled.[49] The final episode aired on July 17, 2014.[50]

Grande recorded her debut album, Yours Truly, over a three-year period.[51] She completed the album, originally titled Daydreamin', in June 2013; it was released on August 30, 2013.[51] She is credited as a songwriter on several tracks of the album.[52] In September 2013, it debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 albums chart, with 138,000 copies sold in its first week, making Grande the first female artist since Kesha to have her first album debut atop of the charts and ranking her the 15th female artist overall.[53][54] Yours Truly also debuted in the top 10 in several other countries, including Australia,[55] the UK,[56] Ireland,[57] and the Netherlands.[58] By April 2014, the album had sold over 500,000 copies in the United States, and later it became Grande's first platinum album.[59][60]

The lead single, "The Way" featuring Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller, debuted at No. 10 on the US Billboard Hot 100,[61] eventually peaking at No. 9 for two weeks,[62] and spent 26 weeks on the Hot 100.[63] Grande was sued by Minder Music for copying the line, "What we gotta do right here is go back, back in time" from the 1972 song "Troglodyte (Cave Man)" by The Jimmy Castor Bunch.[64] Following the release of the album, Billboard magazine ranked Grande at No. 4 on their list of "Music's Hottest Minors 2013", an annual ranking of the most popular musicians under the age of 21.[65] The second single, "Baby I", debuted at No. 21 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, making it her second Top 40 hit.[66] The song also debuted at No. 6 on the US Billboard Hot Digital Songs chart, making Grande the only female music artist to debut two songs in the top 10 of the Hot Digital Songs chart during the year 2013.[67] The third single, "Right There", featuring Detroit rapper Big Sean,[68][69] debuted at No. 84 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

2014–2015: My Everything

By January 2014, Grande had begun recording her second studio album, with singer-songwriter Ryan Tedder and record producers Benny Blanco and Max Martin.[77][78] Grande is also credited as a songwriter on several tracks of the album.[52] The same month, she earned the Favorite Breakout Artist award at the People's Choice Awards 2014.[79] In March 2014, Grande sang at the White House concert, "Women of Soul: In Performance at the White House".[80][81] The following month, President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama invited Grande again to perform at the White House for the Easter Egg Roll event.[82] A duet with R&B singer Chris Brown, "Don't Be Gone Too Long", was scheduled for a March 24 release date but was delayed because of Brown's legal problems.[83] Grande received the Breakthrough Artist of the Year award from the Music Business Association, recognizing her achievements throughout 2013, including her No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 with her first album and her top 10 single on the Hot 100.[79]

Grande released her second studio album, My Everything, on August 25, 2014, with Rolling Stone magazine writing that "My Everything is where the 21-year-old Nickelodeon starlet grows up. It's a confident, intelligent, brazen pop statement, mixing bubblegum diva vocals with EDM break beats".[84] It sold 169,000 copies in its first week and debuted atop the Billboard 200, becoming her second consecutive No. 1 album in the US.[85] Its lead single, "Problem", features Australian rapper Iggy Azalea and premiered at the 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards on April 27.[86][87] The song debuted at No. 3 (eventually climbing to No. 2) on the Billboard Hot 100, and debuted at No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart, becoming Grande's first No. 1 single in the United Kingdom.[88] It made British chart history as the first song to land at No. 1 based on sales and streams.[88] The song was the highest debut ever for a collaboration of female soloists.[89] The second single, "Break Free", featuring German musician and producer Zedd,[90] peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs.[91] The futuristic video has been viewed more than 800 million times.[92] She performed the song at the opening of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, while winning Best Pop Video for her single "Problem".[93] That video has been viewed more than one billion times.[94] She also provided guest vocals on "Bang Bang" with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj, the lead single from Jessie J's third studio album Sweet Talker (2014).[95] The song reached No. 3 in the US, Grande's third song in the Hot 100's top 10 the same week ("Problem", "Break Free" and "Bang Bang"),[91] and went to No.1 in the UK. She joined Adele as the only female artist with three top 10 hits simultaneously as a lead artist.[91] The music video for "Bang Bang" has been viewed more than 800 million times on YouTube.[96] Billboard's review noted that My Everything is not kid-friendly, like Grande's earlier efforts, and stated:

[S]he has pulled more sounds into her repertoire while keeping her biggest weapon, a remarkable vocal range, as a steady foundation. ... My Everything is a less cohesive project than Yours Truly, although its best moments eclipse the highs of Grande's 2013 debut. The singles "Problem" and "Break Free" remain dizzying dance tunes, and back-to-back solo songs "One Last Time" and "Why Try" possess the types of flawless melodies that are typically reserved for the world's biggest pop divas. The back half of the album's many collaborations are hit-or-miss.[97]

On September 27, 2014, Grande was the musical performer on the season 40 premiere of NBC's Saturday Night Live, with Chris Pratt hosting.[98] Three days later, the third single from My Everything, "Love Me Harder", featuring Canadian recording artist The Weeknd, debuted on the Billboard Hot 100, later peaking at No. 7.[99] In November 2014, Grande was featured in Major Lazer's song "All My Love" which was released as the fourth single from the soundtrack album for the film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.[100] The same month, Grande released a Christmas song titled "Santa Tell Me".[101] Spending 34 consecutive weeks in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 in 2014,[102] Grande had the most top 10 singles of any artist that year.[103] She later released a fifth single from My Everything, "One Last Time", which peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100. By April 2015, the album had sold over 600,000 copies in the US[104] and is certified double platinum by the RIAA.[60]

In early 2015, Grande embarked on The Honeymoon Tour of North America and Europe, with several later stops in Asia and South America.[105] The tour earned $14 million in its first 25 performances, selling 290,699 tickets.[106] Following the tour's early success, more dates were added,[107] and the tour concluded in October 2015 after a total of nearly 90 dates.[108] Reviews of the tour performances generally praised Grande's vocals and ability to convey emotion in the songs but found the concerts to be over-produced: "[S]ome judicious editing would've elevated the evening from surprising to satisfying and possibly even shockingly good. As it is, Grande is so busy piling on the spectacle she neglects to highlight the one thing – those deceptively powerful pipes – setting her apart from her contemporaries."[109] Grande was featured on Cashmere Cat's song "Adore", which was released in March during her Honeymoon Tour; a review in USA Today said: "Grande's towering vocals have never sounded better than on this offbeat R&B track."[110]

Artistry

Musical style and influences

Mariah Carey, one of Grande's vocal influences

Grande's music is generally pop and R&B, and it has elements of funkdance and hip hop.[52][174] Grande said she grew up mainly listening to urban pop and 90s music.[174][175] Grande said of her debut album, Yours Truly (2013), that "half of it is a throwback and like very familiar feeling, feel good, and then half of it is something that I've created that's sort of special and unique and refreshing".[176] The doo-wop-inspired disc was complimented for recreating the R&B "vibe and feel of the 90s" with the help of nineties R&B hit maker Babyface.[177] The follow-up, My Everything (2014), has been described as an evolution from her first album with a new sound exploring EDM and electropop genres.[84] The Los Angeles Times review of her third album, Dangerous Woman, commented that it is "impressive how fully she inhabits the emotional environment of each song here, even when one directly contradicts another. ... She's ... deft [at] adapting to different styles".[178]

"I love Mariah Carey. She is literally my favorite human being on the planet. And of course Whitney [Houston] as well. As far as vocal influences go, Whitney and Mariah pretty much cover it. I love Fergie as well. She's just so fun and passionate. I love that she raps as well. Like, she has a fantastic voice and she can belt Gs and As and she doesn't have to do it all the time. She just has swag and I think that's really cool."

Grande has cited Whitney HoustonMariah CareyBrandyIndia.Arie, and Gloria Estefan as her major influences. She describes Estefan as the person who inspired her to pursue a career in th
