Parents, get ready to hear this song over and over and over again — in your car, coming out of your kid’s room, spilling out of their headphones. Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande’s new single (featuring Mac Miller) ‘The Way’ went to number 1 on iTunes when it was released today, in no small part thanks to her 5.4 million Twitter followers. While the legion of fans the 19-year-old cultivated while on Victorious are waiting to catch Grande and iCarly‘s Jeanette McCurdy on the upcoming spinoff Sam & Cat, they’ll be sure to put this on constant replay. And the Mariah Carey-esque sound will likely help it got a lot of radio play.

Check out the official lyric video below and take a peek at some of the slightly more grownup lyrics, like Miller’s risque line:

You a princess to the public/but a freak when it’s time./

Said your bed be feeling lonely/so you sleepin’ in mine.
