Admittedly, I was late the scene when it comes to Ariana Grande, but I did start paying attention to Grande when people began comparing her voice to the iconic Mariah Carey. There have been many people who have drawn comparisons between Carey and Grande over the years, from their voices to their musical styles to the rumors of their diva behavior. Whether you agree that the former Nickelodeon star can compare to Queen Mariah in terms of pitch and flair, the fact of the matter is that the two do tend to sing about very similar things in debatably similar ways. In fact, people might have trouble telling the difference between Mariah Carey lyric and an Ariana Grande lyric.

Though Ariana Grande has a stunningly beautiful voice, I can hear some distinct differences between her melodies and those of the "Elusive Chanteuse." That is not to say that Grande can't hit those amazing octaves that Carey has been so famous for over the course of her career. Still, their lyrics are another thing altogether. Both Carey and Grande are known for their songs about love and relationships. Can you tell whose lyrics are whose?

Take this quiz to prove you can tell the difference between the "Love Me Harder" singer and the R&B legend.
