Cut: "Honeymoon Avenue" (Ariana Grande)

While Ariana Grande's sophomore album My Everything is slated for release in just a few weeks, I've still been enjoying her sublime debut album, which was released less than a year ago.

With that said, I purchased Ariana Grande's debut album Yours Truly and was pleasantly surprised and taken aback by a lot of the material on her debut album. For such a young vocal talent, she certainly has phenomenal vocal chops in addition to some great songwriting skills.

Case and point, her co-penned joint "Honeymoon Avenue," which kicks off Yours Truly. Co-written by Grande, Khris Riddick-Tynes, Leon Thomas, Antonio Dixon, Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, Thomas Brown, Travis Sayles, Dennis Aganee Jenkins, and Victoria Monet, in addition to being produced by The Rascals, Babyface and Dixon, "Honeymoon Avenue" combines Ariana's melisma fueled vocals with some touching lyrics that I am sure a lot of us have felt at one point in our lives.

Take a listen to Ariana's cut "Honeymoon Avenue" from her sublime Republic debut album Yours Truly below and while it receiving the single's treatment seems far fetched as it appears the era of Yours Truly has come to an end, it is one of the standouts of her solid debut effort.
