Blake Shelton Jokes His 'Dreams Were Destroyed' When Ariana Grande Released an Album the Same Day as Him

Blake Shelton has a longstanding bone to pluck with fellow voice coach Ariana Grande.
During a press interview with PEOPLE for upcoming season 21 of the NBC reality singing contest, the 45-year-old country crooner said his "dreams" of the 28-year-old pop star were shattered when she released her album Dangerous Woman on the same day like his album If I'm Honest in 2016.
"I released the album and I had musical momentum at that point," Shelton said. "I was excited when I thought this might be my chance to have the country's # 1 album."

Shelton's dreams were soon shattered when he received a call from his record label. Although they told him it "looked good" that he would have the # 1 country album, they said he had no chance of making the overall charts since "Ariana Grande got her album".
"I literally might as well have put out a coaster on a CD," said Shelton, who debuted with the album at number 3 on the US Billboard 200 chart. "You ruined my album!"

Coach Kelly Clarkson added, "I think I'm smart enough to avoid their releases."
After Shelton told Grande that she could make it up to her by "not crowding out my release dates," she joked that she's coming out with a new cover of If I'm Honest.
Though Grande certainly had a friendly competition with Shelton, she said that it was actually trainer John Legend who she struggled with the most during the blind auditions.
"John and I have most of the chair rotations in common," she said. "But now it's even at this point in the game. Everyone has so many talents."
The new season of The Voice starts on Monday at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
