Somewhere in her head

I have never quite gotten my mind around Ariana Grande’s voice — to me, she sounds like Michael McDonald, if Michael McDonald had been a 12-year-old girl — but she does have ideas of her own, and “In My Head” pulls off the difficult trick of conveying both being trapped and what it might be like to be set free. It helps, of course, if you have disembodied dancers to set the scene.

“In My Head” is off Grande’s thank u, next album; it’s not officially a single.
