Ariana Grande ft. Childish Gambino – Break Your Heart Right Back

Pop sensation of the moment Ariana Grande just released her sophomore album My Everything to the wanting masses and it’s pretty standard fare. Among the conventional ballads and mid-tempo R&B-lite jams are a few standouts and takeaways though, one of them being the sample-heavy “Break Your Heart Right Back.” Singing about a two-timer over the unforgettable Diana Ross/Mo Money Mo Problems instrumental [Diddy & Notorious B.I.G. share in the writing credits] the young marvel hits all the right notes in this hit perfectly tailored for radio airplay. Also offering a slick closing verse is the actor/singer/writer/producer/you-name-it Childish Gambino. All in all a solid effort worthy of a few more spins.

Fun fact…this is allegedly about an old flame who cheated on her with another guy. The Diana Ross sample really ups the shade factor in that light. Listen for yourself below:
