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.
