If you've heard "The Way" by Ariana Grande on the radio, you'd know that the pint-sized singer/actress has some impressive pipes. Already she's being compared to Mariah Carey for her feathery vocal technique and 90's R&B flair. However, Ariana does not have the diva attitude that Mariah is so famous for.
"Baby I" takes off where "The Way" left off. It's a sugary, catchy tune that steals the last rays of summer and manifests themselves in the song. Ariana proves she can tackle the rhythmic orchestral chords that accentuate the song. The lyrics are incredibly simple, and as it should be. Ariana is singing about not having the words to say how much she loves her guy.
The music video for "Baby I" shows Ariana exuding her girl-next-door sweetness combined with 90s swag. The bright colors, fresh dance moves, and creative camera angles make the video an entertaining spectacle that shows Ariana has voice and personality.
