Ariana, 21, released her first album with the song Right There featuring big sean The original was apparently featuring King Los, another rapper   Ariana Grande scored a minor hit last year with R&B-lite/pop jam “Right There” but it turns out Big Sean wasn’t her first choice for the rap feature. King Los was the first MC to lend the perky song a verse and he just uploaded his unreleased version to YouTube so everyone can hear it. There isn’t a world of difference between the King Los demo and finished product. His version is grittier than Sean’s and has a slightly edgier mix but it would have sounded out of place on a bubblegum pop album like Yours Truly. If Ari continues to imitate Mariah Carey‘s career, she can revisit this sound during her inevitable urban phase. Listen after the jump.   View on YouTube
