Ariana Grande announces new lead single 'Focus On Me'...

Well, that was quick. Ariana Grande's new lead single 'Focus On Me' arrives next month in October. The cut, which will serve as the lead single off her third studio album, was written by Ariana, Ilya Salmanzadeh, Savan Kotecha and Peter Svensson
This news was announced by her label Republic Records during a recent iHeartMedia summit. I see someone has become the new Rihanna, (pre-'Unapologetic' of course), releasing albums every year, in a bid to stop her popularity from fading. I also feel like she may back away from the R&B a little to embark on a sassier pop direction. Copying heyday Mariah Carey, or at least attempting to, was only a schtick that could only last for so long. She needs to find her own identity and be herself, and I truly hope she accomplishes that this era.
