Cut: "Honeymoon Avenue" (Ariana Grande)

While Ariana Grande is currently in the midst of her The Honeymoon Tour, I thought it would be nice to revisit the cut that inspired the tour's name as 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 never received the single's treatment hopefully her tour spurs more interest in the song.
