Jeees I can't get into Grande. She looks great and the voice is technically there - but there is NO personaility to the voice whatsoever, and in all her videos, especially for the first few years she was like an oversexualised robot. She kind of reminds me of a what a computer generated popstar would be like. Like a soft porn auto-tuned Stepford daughter.
Having said that I respect how she handled the aftermath of the Manchester tragedy, Break Free is an earworm and I liked Into You. But that's it. I find her much easier to deal with when I don't see her.
As sister Tamar says - Toni Braxton: Living Legend. So. Many. Great. Tracks. A super-distinctive voice, a great catalogue of songs, singles and otherwise and supersexy without ever coming across as slutty.
The list of songs I love is endless, my fave being He Wasn't Man Enough, but also including
Trippin' (That's The Way Love Works)
Unbreak My Heart
Yesterday (both versions but especially the original)
Lookin' At Me
I Heart You
Another Sad Love Song
Give It Back
I'm Still Breathing
and delicious new single Long As I Live.
Love the family reality show Braxton Family Values too.
Christina also has a great back catalogue - so I find it surprising that hits album Keeps Getting Better has so little replay value as a unit. It's not helped by the 4 terrible new tracks. And similarly there's no album I love beginning to end. I must be one of the few that was not a big fan of Stripped, but I liked the success it gave her.
I can't bear karaoke stalwart Beautiful andmy fave is Dirrty.
Other faves are Genie, Come On Over, Love Will Find A Way, Impossible, Nobody Wants To Be Lonely, Your Body and Candyman. I also like guilty pleasure movie Burlesque but all of her songs in that are stinkers.
This ain't gon be easy
