[VIDEO] Ariana Grande’s ‘Break Free': Watch Zedd Discuss The New Single
The “Stay The Night” producer praises the “unique texture” of Grande’s voice.
Ariana Grande is still riding high on the Hot 100 chart with “Problem,” the lead single from her upcoming sophomore album. But over the weekend, the pop singer announced that she already knows what her next single will be: “Break Free,” a track produced by “Clarity” mastermind Zedd that will premiere next Wednesday (July 2).
We at Pop Shop have heard this track, and can confirm that it lives up to the expectations that come with a superstar collaboration. Last weekend at Bonnaroo, we caught up with Zedd about “Break Free,” and he filled us in on how he came to work the Grande.
A few months ago, Zedd overheard a female artist performing at a label showcase while he was backstage, and mentioned to his team that he wanted to work with whoever owned the voice he was hearing. That voice turned out to be Grande‘s, and a month later, the producer and singer “randomly got connected” and made the “Problem” follow-up.
“[Grande's voice] is super-recognizable, it has a unique texture,” says Zedd, “and really, that’s all I’m looking for in a singer, is to have a voice that is really special and different from other voices you hear everyday.”
While Grande‘s “Problem” (featuring Iggy Azalea) holds at No. 2 on the current Hot 100 chart, Zedd is also working on new music.

[ARTICLE] How Ariana Grande and Max Martin Made ‘Problem’ the Song of the Summer
“Acting is fun,” says Grande. “But music has always been first and foremost with me.”
There’s still another month of spring left, but it seems as though we’ve already heard the song of the summer: 20-year-old Nickelodeon vet Ariana Grande’s “Problem” – a sax-driven, 1990s-throwback-R&B jam featuring a guest rap by Iggy Azalea – has exploded online and on radio, selling 438,000copies in its first week. It was the fourth-largest debut week for a woman, and the biggest-ever debut for someone under 21; the song has topped the iTunes chart in more than 50 countries. “What it’s done so far is just incredible in this day and age,” says Tom Poleman, the president of National Programming Platforms for Clear Channel. “She could become one of pop music’s core artists.”
Grande was already a superstar before “Problem” – but mostly among junior-high students. The Florida native spent the past five years in the Nickelodeon trenches, putting in grueling days in her role as the dimwitted Cat Valentine on the megahit kiddie comedy Victorious, and then its new spin-off, Sam & Cat. The role transformed Grande into a tween idol, with 15 million Twitter followers, but she was much more interested in a music career. “I hate acting,” says Grande with a laugh – she grew up worshipping Whitney Houston and Destiny’s Child, and has serious vocal range and power of her own. “It’s fun, but music has always been first and foremost with me.”
Grande was raised in Boca Raton by her graphic designer father and CEO mother, who runs a company that provides communication equipment for the armed forces, and has been singing and acting since she was six. She was signed by Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, in 2013, but her professional music career got off to a rocky start with 2011’s “Put Your Hearts Up,” a bubblegum-pop song she can barely bring herself to talk about. “It was geared toward kids and felt so inauthentic and fake,” she says. “That was the worst moment of my life. For the video, they gave me a bad spray tan and put me in a princess dress and had me frolic around the street. The whole thing was straight out of hell. I still have nightmares about it, and I made them hide it on my Vevo page.” Read more
