In a comeback interview on Tuesday night, Ariana Grande revealed that the upcoming title for her album is ‘Sweetener’. She also spilled the beans that the album will be releasing on July 20th, this summer.
What’s more, Ariana told fans that her grandma Nonna’s favorite record on the album is titled ‘God is a Woman’.
Ariana talked comfortably about her upcoming album with her ‘bff Jimmy Fallon’ on Tuesday night’s The Tonight Show. She said the album was called ‘Sweetener’ because it’s about “bringing light to a situation or someone’s life…or sweetening a life”. Moreover, she confirmed the titles of a few of the tracks on the album, including R.E.M, The Light is Coming, God is a Woman, Sweetener, and Raindrops.
The first song of the album will be Raindrops, which is actually a cover of a short snippet from the 50’s titled ‘An Angel Cried’. Ariana said that, shockingly, the original song is co-written by her grandfather’s best friend! When she found out about that, she said it gave her goosebumps.
Ariana joked on the show that she looked like a gumdrop; dressed in a pink peplum top and knee high nude colored boots, the singer looked stunning. She wore her long grey-blonde hair in a high ponytail and kept flipping it around making our hearts stop with every flip.
The cute starlet got emotional when Fallon mentioned her courage for speaking in an interview for the first time since the Manchester attack during her concert. She looked visibly teary and the comment left her speechless. Fallon went on to read a snippet from a paragraph that Ariana wrote after the attack took place.
“We wont let hate win, our response to this violence must be to come closer together ,to help each other, to love more, to sing louder, and to live more kindly and generously than we did before.”
Much to fans delight, Ariana performed No Tears Left to Cry on the show, a song from the singer’s upcoming fourth album. She also said that there is a hidden track list for the album, somewhere in the video. Fans are over the moon that Ariana revealed so many details about her new music. Many went on Twitter to express their excitement with the trending hashtag ‘#ArianaonFallon’.
