Ariana Grande provided some proof on Wednesday (March 24) that practice does make perfect. In a two-minute video she said was recorded "some time last year," the singer peeled back the curtain on how hard she strives for perfection in the studio with footage of the dozens of takes for the outro to the title track for her Positions album.
On the album the bit she's recording is a subtle, 10 second vocal run of ad-libs that seem like no big deal. But watching Grande do take-after-take to get it just right provides a fascinating look at how much work she puts into even the smallest details. We watch Grande try out, sorry, several different vocal positions, admit that "that's hard!" and then ask for playback to dissect what she's just done.
