We all have guilty pleasures, those songs that have no business on our iPods or the tracks we only blast with the windows up. In this column we share our darkest musical secrets.
Today’s guilty pleasure track comes all the way from London in the UK, courtesy of our boy Sope Soetan.
His pick is Ariana Grande’s insanely catchy single “Right There.” I’ve gotta go to bat for Sope here – I love this one as much as he does. Ariana’s album may be geared toward girls who use glittery nail polish and dot their i’s with hearts but this is one of the best releases of the year. Don’t believe me? Check my review.
My only beef with the song is guest rapper Big Sean stumbling through his verses. As usual. But otherwise, this track is a keeper. Sope knows what’s up.
