We don't think it is a bad thing when people think you can hit the notes that Mariah Carey used to. Ariana Grande doesn't think so either.
When interviewed by Complex Magazine, Grande said:
"At first impression, I think it's an obvious comparison to draw because of the range and style of throwback R&B. But as you listen to the whole album, Yours Truly, you get to know my sound. You get to know Ariana. If I complained about being compared to the great vocalist who ever lived, I would be a very dumb, ungrateful person. So I can't complain. It's a massive compliment."

Diagnosis: Like Mariah, her debut album has hit number one. The rest? Time will tell.....
