Ariana Grande Is Going EDM With Zedd on New Album

Ariana Grande Is Going EDM With Zedd on New Album

Although she's most frequently compared to Mariah Carey thanks to her incredible pipes, Ariana Grande is dabbling in EDM on her upcoming second album. And you can thank/blame Zedd.

The 20-year-old pop star told Billboard that recording with the EDM all-star was "fantastic and super-experimental for me. I never thought I'd do an EDM song, but that was an eye-opening experience. Now all I want to do is dance."

Grande also revealed we can expect her second full-length—which will include her just-dropped Iggy Azalea collabo "Problem"—in August or September of this year. The release follows 2013's Yours Truly, which hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts and made her the 15th female solo artist to reach the top spot with a debut album.

If the record has any of the energy of "Problem," we're in good hands.

Listen to the sexy, sax-saturated track below.
