From ‘Problem’ to ‘One Last Time,’ Republic Records has carefully sequenced the hits from Grande’s smash second album.
Ariana Grande keeps collecting hits from her sophomore album, My Everything, as “One Last Time” pushes to a new peak, No. 13, on the Billboard Hot 100 dated May 2. The song is the fifth single – and fifth smash – from the set, following “Problem” (featuring Iggy Azalea), which hit No. 2 last June; “Break Free” (featuring Zedd) (No. 4, August); “Bang Bang,” with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj (No. 3, October); and “Love Me Harder,” with The Weeknd (No. 7, November).
If it sounds like “Time,” with its easy hook and mass-appeal dance/pop vibe, is strong enough to be a lead single from an album, Republic Records executive VP Charlie Walk says that the label strongly considered it as the first offering from My Everything. But, the sassy “Problem” – released a year ago today – was a “disruptor,” as Walk calls it, best “setting the tone for the project.”
From there, Republic continued to strategically sequence the set’s singles. “‘Break Free’ felt like summer,” Walk says, while “Bang Bang” helped usher in Jessie J’s album Sweet Talker. Then, “Fall/winter felt like the best time for ‘Love Me Harder,’ since it’s a heavier, darker record.”
(And, while not a radio single, another song from My Everything, ballad “Just a Little Bit of Your Heart,” gained widespread exposure when Grande sang it on the Grammy Awards on Feb. 8. The performance further “showed her diversity,” Walk says.)
Of course, a label’s promotional efforts are only as strong as the music itself. With Grande, that’s, well, one less problem to worry about. “You trust in an artist’s ability to carry a song,” Walk adds. “We trust Ariana implicitly and she made these songs what they are today.
“She breathes life into songs and makes them matter.”
The calculated mapping out of when songs might sound best on the radio (and other platforms) isn’t exclusive to My Everything. Capitol Records, for instance, considered the seasons when planning singles from Katy Perry’s 2013 album PRISM. After lead single “Roar” ruled the Hot 100 that fall, the label issued ballad “Unconditionally” (a Perry favorite) to sync with winter, similar to Republic’s mindset regarding “Love Me Harder.” Likewise, Perry’s uptempo “Birthday” and “This Is How We Do,” the fourth and fifth singles from PRISM, were targeted for summer partying, a la Grande’s “Break Free.”

(and yes, the fragrance thing is totally true / i’m so very stoked!!!)
Ariana has signed a deal with Luxe Brands, with an expected launch of her very first fragrance in September 2015.
In previous interviews and articles, Ariana has revealed her love for perfumes and everyone asking what she is wearing:
“I have always been obsessed with perfume. I always carried, like, six different scents in my bag, another three in my suitcase and another couple in my car.”
“I’m asked so often about which fragrance I’m wearing, or if I have a signature scent. I do have favourites, but I really want to create something that encompasses everything I love… which is why I am so excited to create my personal fragrance I can call my own.”
We are so excited for Ariana in her success and her releasing her own fragrance !
