Now that the Billboard Music Awards have wrapped in the US and with her new album ‘Dangerous Woman’ in the shops, Ariana Grande has unveiled the video for her new single ‘Let Me Love You’.
Ariana was nominated in two categories in this year’s Billboard Awards (Top Female Artist and Top Social Media Artist), but lost out to Adele and Justin Bieber respectively. Undeterred, she’s soldiering on with her new clip.
‘Let Me Love You’, to us, is oddly reminiscent of some of those more R&B-focused Mariah Carey singles on which she collaborated with the hottest rapper at the time. Even the clip, in which she poses, purrs, and pouts for the camera seems familiar.
We could have done without Lil Wayne’s appearance, but it’s a sweet and inoffensive R&B number that, while probably not ideally suited to mainstream radio airplay, should get her some love with the edgier urban stations in her home country.
