I agree about the Your Body comparisons, but I actually loved that song and thought it was WAY superior to this. "SAAAYY" > this.
To be fair, Your Body wasn't a bad song. The SAAAAAY! stuff did get irritating and when she went AWOL on the vocals, it become the usual grating Christina mess but it was a catchy and pretty punchy pop song. Arianna however, has a superior vocal showing on Focus simply because of her lighter tones. She's not one to grunt like she's wadding through pig sh!te which immediately makes it a more pleasant experience.
If I want someone screaming in my ear for an extended period, I'll go see Paranormal Activity with a few mates.
I don't know-- I definitely like Ariana's voice better in general, but I always thought Christina sounded great on YB. (Especially compared to how strained and awful her voice sounded on the rest of Lotus).
I just find Ariana's performance on this song to be extremely lackluster, whereas I thought she nailed the vocals on Problem.
