Listen: Ariana Grande Premieres Zedd And Max Martin-Produced Dance Anthem ‘Break Free’


After relentlessly teasing “Break Free” on Instagram, Ariana Grande finally unveiled the follow-up to “Problem” this afternoon (July 2). Co-produced by Zedd and Max Martin, the fast and furious club banger certainly represents a new sound for the 21-year-old, who is best known for her power ballads and mid-tempo jams.

The second taste of Ari’s imminent sophomore set My Everything is a manic floorfiller that picks up where Zedd’s last big hit “Clarity” left off. It’s fairly straightforward EDM but Swedish hitmaker Max Martin makes sure that it has a distinct pop sensibility. “Problem” was blocked from reaching number one by Iggy Azalea‘s “Fancy” but the pint-sized diva could have better luck this time.
