As you know, I have two problems with Ariana Grande. One, her never-changing hairstyle. Ari, I know you have extensions, but please try something different! And two, it irks me that she’s forever diluting her magical voice with a ton of weird synth beats and overworked melodies. I like her better when she’s acapella and letting that stellar set of pipes take center stage.
So today darlings, I suppose half of my wishes came true. While AG may still be rocking that same ‘do (sigh), she did treat us to a stripped down version of her hit, “Baby I”–but added in a beatboxer! The gent is Japanese beatboxing sensation HIKAKIN (yes, all caps, annoying) and the result of his beats and her voice is hilarious perfection. Take a look, minions:
Are you stunned at how amazing AG’s voice is sans any sort of sound engineering? Or were you too distracted by HIKAKIN to even notice?
