Ariana Grande Spills Tea On New Album
Ariana Grande revealed on Tuesday that her new album is called Sweetener and will drop this summer.
“It’s kind of about bringing light to a situation or to someone’s life, or somebody else who brings light to your life,” she explained on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. “Or sweetening the situation.”
Grande said she worked with Pharrell and Swedish hitmakers Max Martin, Ilya Salmanzadeh and Savan Kotecha on the album, which includes tracks titled “R.E.M.,” “The Light Is Coming,” “God Is A Woman.”
The first song on the album is “Raindrops,” which samples “The Angel Cried,” recorded in 1961 by The Four Seasons.
Sweetener is Grande's first new collection of music since 2016's Dangerous Woman.
Grande will perform at the Billboard Music Awards on May 20 on CTV.
