About The Way

"The Way" is a song recorded by American singer Ariana Grande, featuring rapper Mac Miller, from Grande's debut studio album Yours Truly (2013). It was written by the song's producer Harmony Samuels, alongside Amber Streeter, Al Sherrod Lambert, Jordin Sparks, Brenda Russell, and Miller. The song's backing track is based on the piano melody from Russell's 1979 song "A Little Bit of Love", and the song has melodic and lyrical similarities to Big Pun's 1998 song "Still Not a Player", which also samples "A Little Bit of Love". "The Way" was released on March 26, 2013, by Republic Records as the lead single from Yours Truly. The song debuted at number 10 and peaked at number 9 on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming Grande and Miller's first top ten song on the chart. This also made Grande the first top ten arrival for a lead female artist making her first Hot 100 appearance since Yael Naim, who launched with "New Soul" back in 2008. As of April 2018, "The Way" has sold 2.4 million copies in the United States and has been certified triple platinum.
