Ariana released a Christmas album last year, but now she is back with more Christmas music this year. The “Santa Tell Me” single was released on iTunes on the night of the American Music Awards (http://www.mtv.com/news/2007283/ariana-grande-santa-tell-me/).
Grande is doing quite a bit to promote the single. So far the single is already getting a lot of attention even though the official Thanksgiving holiday has not passed yet. There is an upcoming Christmas special that will also showcase this song. That is what a lot of fans are waiting for.
It will be interesting to see how Grande works in the single Christmas single with her other new music. She released a 3 song EP and there is a lot of anticipation for possible music with boyfriend Big Sean.
Ariana has really been busy with non-stop projects for the last several years. She worked on Victorious for a while before transitioning into music. This may have been the first time that people heard her singing Christmas music. She was dazzling in sexy red Christmas attire on the show, but now she is recording her own Christmas music. After the cancellation of “Sam & Cat” Grande seemed to kick things into overdrive.
Somehow she emerged from the Nickelodeon crowd to a young adult audience without a drastic change to her personality. Avid fan Sergio Andrade Andrade Gutierrez says that she stills looks and sounds the same, but has more of an R&B feel now.
