Is Ariana Grande The ‘Next Mariah Carey’?
There’s no doubt that Ariana Grande is talented and beautiful, with a few big hits under her belt already, but is the 21-year-old destined for a career that can rival Mariah Carey’s? A$AP Ferg, for one, definitely thinks so.
The Harlem rapper, who released his debut album Trap Lord last year, is featured on Ariana’s upcoming second LP, My Everything, on the song “Hands On Me,” and he has big predictions for her future.
“She’s the next Mariah Carey. She’s dope,” Ferg told MTV News on the BET Awards red carpet last weekend. “And that’s not an understatement, or an overstatement — I just see her as that next big voice that’s gonna pop.”
In regards to their collaboration on “Hands On Me,” he would only say that “it’s a dope song,” and he can’t wait for us to hear it.
