Within just a few hours, Ariana Grande’s new single “Problem” has skyrocketed to #1 on iTunes in 40+ countries, so we can’t blame the pop star for celebrating bright and early at 7am.
“Hey, hey! I want to see you drop it down low next time! I need everybody to get up!” she told Carson. “It’s too much.”
“Problem,” featuring Iggy Azalea, is the first single off Grande’s upcoming sophomore album, which she plans to release late this summer.
“We’re looking to put it out around August/September, around there. Same time as Yours Truly last year. I’m really grateful. I got to be a lot more involved in the writing this time because I wasn’t filming [Sam & Cat] at the same time as much.”
“I got to work with Max Martin and Savan [Kotecha] on a lot of it, which was really cool and they wanted me to be as involved as I could be,” she continued. “For some of the biggest guys in the game, they really wanted my input.”
