Deep within the internet age, nothing actually makes it to it’s release date before being heard. As MTV’s current artist of the month, Ariana Grande’s music is being plugged left and right on MTV and VH1. Today they debuted what’s likely to be her next hit. Back when the tracklist for Ariana Grande’s sophomore album My Everything surfaced, people circled “Love Me Harder” featuring The Weeknd as a must-hear track.
Obviously, the apparent odd-pairing peaked people’s interest. While Abel Tesfaye has certainly come a long way from his mysterious/reclusive days at the peak of his Tumblr fame amid his House of Balloons success, he’s still a long while away from appearing on Teen Nick anytime soon.
Ariana, set on putting her teenie-bopper image behind her, is most certainly intent on using this album as a platform to push herself further into the pop-star elite. The Weeknd (who my girlfriend mistook for Jason Derulo on this track. YIKES!) looks to be getting his savvy business-man swagger on for this one, recognizing the oppurtunity for a little cross-over appeal.
