Ariana Grande × The Voice

Multi-platinum global recording artist, Grammy Award winner, and talented actress Ariana Grande will join the upcoming Fall 2021 cycle of NBC’s “The Voice” as a coach.

Grande, a powerhouse vocalist whose international fan base of “Arianators” has enabled her to rapidly become one of the biggest pop superstars of our generation, will be joined by returning iconic coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Blake Shelton, along with host Carson Daly, on the four-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series.

With her most recent album, “Positions,” recently breaking the record for most songs to debut at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and cementing her as Spotify’s most-streamed female artist of the past decade, Grande, a self-proclaimed fan of “The Voice,” claims a red chair at a pivotal point in her career.

“As an undeniable force in pop music, Ariana’s inimitable success in the music industry is extraordinary,” said Jenny Groom, Executive Vice President of Unscripted Content for NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “We were thrilled to learn that she is a true fan of ‘The Voice’ and know that this enthusiasm will add to her impact as a dynamic coach. Ariana is a visionary with over a decade of experience in the music industry. Her unmatched vocal skills, creativity, and unique expertise on all facets of the industry will make her an invaluable coach to the next generation of artists.”

Said Grande, “I’m so honored and excited to join ‘The Voice’ family! I have been a huge fan of the show for such a long time. I can’t wait to go head-to-head with the incredible coaches, get to know these new artists, and help to take their craft to the next level.”

A Grammy-winning, multi-platinum recording artist and international superstar, Ariana Grande was the first artist to hold the top three Billboard Hot 100 spots since the Beatles in 1964 with “7 Rings,” “Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored,” and “Thank U, Next.” In 2020, she became the first and only artist to have five singles debuts at #1 in the chart’s history. At age 27, she has delivered five platinum-selling albums and surpassed 35 billion streams – she’s Spotify’s most-streamed female artist of the past decade – while rapidly becoming one of the biggest pop stars of our generation with her powerhouse vocals and unmatched presence both on stage and with her fans. She recently won a Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Rain on Me” with Lady Gaga.

The Battle Rounds for Season 20 of “The Voice,” with current coaches Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas, John Legend, and Blake Shelton, continue Monday, April 5 and April 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

For the 2020-21 season-to-date, “The Voice” is the #1 alternative series among total viewers. The show has ranked among the top 5 most-watched alternative series for each of its 11 broadcast seasons on the air.

Season 20 marks the 10-year anniversary of “The Voice.”

“The Voice” is a presentation of MGM Television, Warner Bros. Unscripted Television in association with Warner Horizon, and ITV Studios The Voice USA, Inc. The series was created by John de Mol, who serves as an executive producer along with Mark Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Amanda Zucker, Kyra Thompson, and Adam H. Sher.

NJOMZA – Lucky

The Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter NJOMZA returns with the tender new single and video Lucky, out now on SinceThe80s/Motown. Listen HERE. The track, built around gospel guitar chords and NJOMZA’s ascendant vocals, is a warm, soul-inflected reminder to hold your loved ones close. She sounds lost and lonely at first, but as the song unfolds, it builds to a kindhearted climax, repeating insistently, “If you love someone let them know.”

Lucky arrives accompanied by a black-and-white video directed by Griffin Olis and NJOMZA. The visual intertwines dreamlike snippets of home-video footage with shots of her laying in the sand. It’s a stirring document of memory and loss, underscoring the songߣs message to not take anything or anyone for granted. Watch it HERE.

For NJOMZA, Lucky is only the latest in a long run of captivating pop songs. In April, she released the gauzy, sensual single Bite, which has garnered over 2.5 million total streams. Over the last few years, sheߣs drawn both critical acclaim and commercial success for her work with Mac Miller who signed her to his REMember Music label when she was a teen and Ariana Grande, with whom she’s co-written hits like 7 Rings and Thank U, Next.

All the while, she’s been twisting up R&B and pop signifiers on her own songs, on singles like 2019’s No One Is Spared and EPs like 2017’s Sad For You and 2018’s Vacation. People are listening too. Over the years, her tracks have racked up over 50 million global streams. As she gears up to release more new music in 2021, Lucky is a winning reminder of what drew people to her in the first place: the emotion and care she’s able to pack into her memorable melodies.
