So exciting! I just gave Ariana Grande’s new album, Sweetener, a first listen and YAAAAAAAASSSS!!! My soul needed this to be good, and she did not disappoint me.
I was concerned when she came out with the first two singles, no tears left to cry and that other one with Nicki Minaj, but then she gave us God is a woman and I gave her my full attention.
Sweetener has my zaddy Pharrell’s fingerprints all over it, includes bangers (high key and low key ones), and finally gives us a little taste (excuse the pun) of her lower register. At this point, I have only listened to this album once, but I have a feeling I will be listening for the rest of this week, month, year… and beyond. Thanks Ari!
PS -unexpected girl anthem is the super cute and satisfying song ‘successful’. Already looking forward to strutting down NYC streets to this one. “It feels so good to be so young and have this fun and be successful. I’m so successful.” OKAY!
