Ariana Grande has shared two unreleased tracks from the cutting room floor.
The “Into You” singer started up a new SoundCloud account just to get these songs into the world. The account’s username is “arianagrandeforrealidkwhyicantgetmyownlinkbutok,” because apparently some imposter had already taken “arianagrande."
It does really seem to be Grande behind the account, though; she tweeted out a link to both songs, and the voice on the tracks is definitely hers.
The first, “Voodoo Love,” is an upbeat, rambunctious song that had only been heard in bootleg form, while “OG Honeymoon Ave (w/ Dap Kings)” is an alternate take of Yours Truly opener “Honeymoon Avenue,” boosted by Sharon Jones’s legendary soul band The Dap Kings.
Grande’s sound has changed a whole lot from these two songs, but it’s always nice to go back and revisit her early years.
