Ariana Grande and Mac Miller Reach Number One on iTunes With "The Way"

Boca native Ariana Grande's seriously high notes boosted the young singer to the top of the iTunes charts today. Just released, her second single, "The Way," features college rapper dude Mac Miller and some heart-warming, wholesome lyrics, well, at least for an R&B song.

Grande sings emotionally, like a teenaged Mariah Carey, with Miller coming in on a Big Pun "Still Not a Player" sample. Grande, known as Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon's Victorious, said on Twitter right after hitting numero uno: "Today has been insane really. Pinch me. I've been crying non stop. I really wasn't expecting this. Do y'all have a clue how much I love you?"
