Fans can expect from my album a lot of great music. It's going to be like pages lifted from my diary. It's very honest and personal. Every song, every lyric, is very true to my life, so my fans will be able to hear a lot of what I was going through in the past year and a half while I was writing the album.

Ariana Grande on her debut album

Yours Truly is the debut studio album by Ariana Grande. The album was released on September 3, 2013 (August 30, 2013 in some territories) by Republic Records. The album was originally announced as Daydreamin', but the title was ultimately changed before release. This was the album's title up until at least March 19, 2013.[1]

While primarily a pop and R&B record, Yours Truly incorporates the sounds of 1990's hip-hop and 1950s doo-wop. Grande was inspired by several artists throughout the making of Yours Truly, including Amy Winehouse, Christina Aguilera, and Mariah Carey. The album was crafted over the span of nearly three years with various producers, including Harmony Samuel's, Babyface, Patrick "J. Que" Smith, and Victorious co-star, Leon Thomas III of the Rascals, creating a sound that is, in Grande's words, "half-throwback, half-unique."

Yours Truly debuted atop the US Billboard 200 chart, making Grande the fifteenth female artist to ever debut at number-one in the United States with their first album. The album achieved critical acclaim upon release and was later certified platinum by the RIAA.

On August 25, 2023, the album was re-released in celebration of its ten-year anniversary, including newly recorded Live From London versions of numerous songs from the album, Q&As with Grande, brand new Yours Truly inspired merchandise, a re-issued picture disc vinyl including a new embossed gatefold, and unreleased material uploaded to Grande's YouTube Channel.

Background[]

2010 - Early 2013: Early Recording as Daydreamin' and Honeymoon Avenue[]

Taking nearly three years to complete, Yours Truly underwent significant conceptual and sonic changes before its eventual release. Grande started working on music independently while filming Victorious (2009-2013), and formally started production on the album in 2011 after she was signed to Republic Records.[2][3] By September 10, 2011, Grande already had 20 songs prepared and was going through the process of narrowing it down to thirteen.[4]

The intended lead single for the album, the bubbly, upbeat "Put Your Heart's Up", was released on December 12, 2011.[1] The single was aimed at younger audiences, perhaps intending to cater to Grande's core audience, which at that time was almost entirely made up by children who knew her as Cat Valentine.

Throughout the creation of the album, Grande described it being "inspired by 50s and 60s doo-wop" and revealed that she was gonna release two new singles before the albums release, including the doo-wop/dubstep hybrid "Do You Love Me?" featuring American rapper and record producer, Sky Blu. Throughout the next couple of years, Grande revealed more songs that were intended for her album, including "Voodoo Love", "La Vie En Rose", "Pink Champagne", and "Boyfriend Material". However, most of these songs went unreleased. "Boyfriend Material" was sold to Korean girl group f(x) and was released in 2013 as "여우 같은 내 친구 (No More)". The song's instrumental and main vocal melody are nearly identical to Ariana's version, but feature completely different lyrics.

"Honeymoon Avenue", "Tattooed Heart", and "Daydreamin'", were all created during these early album sessions as well, though they are the only three songs from the original concept to eventually be released with the rest of the album.

*note: as of this time, the exact recording dates for "Almost Is Never Enough", "Baby I", "Lovin' It", "Piano", are unknown.

Late 2013: Re-conceptualizing the Album[]

In early 2013, Grande met up with her label and expressed dissatisfaction with the direction the album was taking. In several interviews throughout the year, she admitted to completely disliking her debut single, "Put Your Hearts Up",[159] and confessed she wanted to make the type of music she grew up listening to: "random urban pop, just some 90's music."[160]

The album's original "throwback" concept was then reworked, and the album began to take shape as more of a 1990s hip-hop and R&B infused record. Grande described this new sound as "modern motown inspired pop and soul."[161] Grande later listed Amy Winehouse, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys, and Madonna as inspirations for the album, amongst others.[162] Although the album was originally announced as Daydreamin',[163] Grande had revealed in an interview with Power 106 that it was renamed to Yours Truly after she decided that the album felt like a love letter she wanted to sign.[164]

"The Way", featuring American rapper Mac Miller, was released as the album's new lead single on March 26, 2013. The song peaked at number nine on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming both Grande and Miller's first top 10 song on the chart. An accompanying music video, directed by Jones Crow, features Grande and Miller dancing inside of a room filled with balloons. It was released two days after the single's initial release. The song samples "Still Not a Prayer" (1998) by Big Pun.

The original album cover for Yours Truly depicts Grande, dawning light-pink lingerie, kneeling over a bed of pink and white roses. She is sitting in front of a coral-pink background, and the words "Yours Truly, Ariana Grande" are written above her in cursive. Grande received backlash from fans over the image, with some claiming it was "too childish" and "ugly". Due to the negative reception, the album cover was swiftly changed to a black and white image of Grande beneath a spotlight.

Singles[]

  • The album's lead single, "The Way", featuring rapper Mac Miller, was released on March 25, 2013.
  • The second single, "Baby I", was released on August 1, 2013.

Promotional singles[]

Promotion[]

To promote "The Way", which premiered on On Air with Ryan Seacrest, Grande visited various radio stations, including Y-100 Miami, 93.3 FM, Z100, KIIS-FM and 99-7 Now.

Grande performed "The Way" at several Top 40 radio concerts, including KIIS-FM's Wango Tango concert on May 11, 2013 in Los Angeles, 101.3 KDWB's Star Party concert on May 17, 2013 in Minneapolis, Kiss 108's Kiss Concert 2013 event in Boston, 103.3 AMP Radio's Birthday Bash concert on June 30, 2013 also in Boston, and Mix 93.3's Red White & Boom concert on July 5, 2013 in Kansas City. Her debut televised performance was on May 29, 2013, where she performed "The Way" live with Mac Miller on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Her second televised performance of "The Way" aired on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon during the episode dated June 14, 2013.

On August 7, 2013, Grande revealed the official tracklist via iTunes, and pre-orders for the album were made available.

Critical reception[]

Yours Truly has received positive reviews from critics, with much praise going to her throwback to 90s R&B music and her vocals, with critics comparing them to Mariah Carey.

At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 86, which indicates "universal acclaim", based on 5 reviews. Nick Cattuci of Entertainment Weekly gave the album an A– grade, describing it as "one of the most purely enjoyable albums of the year" and praising Grande's "lithe, Broadway-honed voice." Lucas Villa of Examiner awarded the record four out of five stars, writing, "[Grande's] big and theatrical voice flutters in all the right places on this sugary sweet album of love tunes." Gregory Hicks of The Michigan Daily gave the album a mixed review, saying "most tracks are of quality composition, lyrically and melodically, but beat usage becomes excessive at times."

The Huffington Post gave the album a positive review, calling it one of the year's best album debuts, stating that her album is in "near-perfect form on her debut, mainly thanks to her Mariah Carey-esque vocals and songs written by Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds." Shamiyah Kelley of the The Daily Reville gave the album a grade "A", stating that "These days, it’s difficult to find a singer that actually has a great voice, but when Grande sings, it takes me back to The Emancipation of Mimi from Mariah Carey’s glory days". She concluded her review by saying "there was a lot of anticipation for this album with high expectations, and Grande delivered." The Honesty Hour were mixed with the album, praising “Tattooed Heart,” “Piano,” and “Honeymoon Avenue” as the standout tracks of the album, but felt Grande needed to train more on her vocals. The site gave the album a 3.5 out of 5 stars, stating "as a whole, Ariana’s debut is very solid. It is cohesive, written with understandability, and is sonically-pleasing."

Tour[]

Grande has embarked on her debut tour titled The Listening Sessions in support of Yours Truly. It started on August 13, 2013, and ended on September 22, 2013.[165] The tour is passed through North America only (Canada and United States).

Announced on August 19, 2023, via Grande's Instagram, the digital reissue includes live versions of six songs from the album, and was promoted with videos of those live performances as well as Q&As with Grande, a merchandise capsule collection, and a new picture disk pressing of the standard album.

Trivia[]

  • On August 1, 2013, Grande revealed the original artwork for Yours Truly, which featured her kneeling on a bed of roses in front of a pink background.[166] Due to fan criticism, she quickly unveiled a new cover, which simply featured the singer standing beneath a spotlight.
  • It was confirmed by Grande that the album was originally going to have 15 songs during January 24, 2013 Livestream.
  • Grande revealed Yours Truly as the name of the album on July 19, 2013.[164]
    • The album's original title was Daydreamin'. Another title that was considered was Honeymoon Avenue.
  • Grande has writing credits for 5 out of the 12 songs on the album.
  • The first song recorded was "Tattooed Heart", and was solely written entirely by Grande (as revealed in the 2023 YT10 Q&A).
  • Singles from the album were remixed and put on Grande's first remix album, The Remix.
  • This is Grande's only studio album without a title track.
  • The album contains samples of many other songs, including:
    • "A Little Bit of Love" by Brenda Russell (The Way).
    • "Rain Dance" by Jeff Lorber Fusion (Right There)
    • "Real Love" by Mary J. Blige (Lovin' It)
    • "Popular" from the Broadway Musical, Wicked (Popular Song)
  • On June 18, 2018, Grande revealed on Twitter her top 5 from Yours Truly: "Honeymoon Avenue", "Lovin' It", "Daydreamin'", "You'll Never Know" and "Right There".[167]
  • Grande's team had asked rapper Iggy Azalea to feature on a track for the album, but Azalea turned it down. The two later collaborated on "Problem", which was featured on Grande's second album, My Everything (2014) and served as it’s lead single.
  • The only three songs that remained from the original version of the album are "Honeymoon Avenue", "Daydreamin'", and "Tattooed Heart." Grande has stated that Honeymoon Avenue was at first very different, with a more upbeat and happier instrumental, juxtaposing the moody lyrical content.
  • "Put Your Hearts Up" was originally intended to be the lead single for the album, but was later replaced by "The Way." This change was due to the song not fitting the rest of the album and Grande feeling that she was playing a character (Cat Valentine) rather than being herself. Over the years, she has expressed her distain for the song, even calling it her worst song.
    • She later addressed her past hatred for the song in a 2020 Zach Sang interview stating: "Everyone thinks that I hate that record, I do not. But I do consider it a transitional part of my life, that's why it never made it to an album or anything." She later went on to clarify how she felt the song was not representative of her as an artist or person.
  • Yours Truly is Grande's only album in which every song is at least 3 minutes long.[29]
  • The 10th anniversary reissue of the album is the first project Grande released after her separation from her ex-manager, Scooter Braun.
  • Upon release, the artwork for the Tenth Anniversary edition of the album had a small, white line spanning the top of the image. After being pointed out by fans, the mistake was fixed.
  • Ariana recorded all the songs with the lights off.[145]
  • The live versions were recorded on June 25, 2023.[168]
