This week, Ariana Grande released her new single "Focus." To say I'm not impressed is an understatement. While the vibe to this song is interesting, the track sounds quite similar to her past hit "Problem," with the jazz backgrounds overtop of the pop beat, and Ariana building up into a chorus with someone else singing the actual chorus instead. "Focus" reminds me of something you would want to have on in a Hip Hop Abs class, but not something you would actually listen to just for the enjoyment of it. Ariana has such a strong range vocally, that songs like this where she just backs out of actually using her talent makes me question her as an artist. The lyrics are not rememberable, actually no, the whole song is not really rememberable. I'm hoping she has some better tricks up her sleeve. Check out the video for "Focus" below and tell me if you agree or disagree!
