Ariana Grande – Break Free Featuring Zedd Review
She has come out of her comfort zone. Most ‘Break Free’ by Ariana Grande featuring Zedd review articles highlight the gutsiness of this pop start to literally break free from her common music influence. Before, she was known for blending old school belting out style with R&B and pop music. With this song, she broke her very own norms to provide a club banger with EDM elements.
Those who are familiar with past Ariana Grande songs would have noticed that she sounds totally different in this latest offering. And most of us will be amazed that she can actually pull it off. This track becomes pure power pop, drawing from its bassline down to the chorus and the twinkling synthetic melody. Her vocals will not be left behind.
Zedd brings in heavy and thumping beat that compliments Grande’s high-register voice. The lyrics are equally interesting. The song talks about being able to finally break free from a past flame. The singer promises to be strong and independent as she braces herself. This makes this single reminiscent of some similar women empowerment anthems from the likes of Gloria Gaynor and Destiny’s Child.
