   On August 17, 2018, Ariana Grande released her fourth studio album Sweetener, and it is no less than spectacular.

   Grande has been working non-stop to ensure that the album is what we listen to today. She has been working on the album since sometime around November 2016 and she’s been dropping hints via her snapchat stories.

   A few months before the album dropped, Grande paid a visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and announced the title of her album would be called Sweetener and the meaning behind the name.

   “It’s kind of about like bringing light to a situation, or to someone’s life, or somebody else who brings light to your life, or sweetening the situation,” Grande said.

   Grande released two singles leading up to the launch of her album. On April 20, she released her first single from the album “no tears left to cry.”

   Just like the title of the album, the song expresses how she is tired of being pessimistic and is ready to have happier, positive vibes in the future as she works to make things better for herself. It is the perfect introduction to the new era.

   “God is a woman,” the second single, released on July 13, produced upset among her fans due to the controversial title. However, the exquisite lyrics and smooth beat made for a rememberable single.  

   Sweetener consists of 15 tracks, each better than the one before. Grande has a new sound in some of the tracks compared to her past albums. “the light is coming,” featuring Nicki Minaj has to be the most unique song on her album by far. Despite the repetitive lyrics, it’s very catchy and it will most definitely have you listening to it on repeat.

   “pete davidson,” the fourteenth track is about Grandes fiance. Even though this track is short, “raindrops (an angel cried)” being the shortest, the point is understood right away in the lyrics. It has a lot of emotion and love poured into it. It’s authentic in her own perfect way.

   This album was as amazing as anticipated, Grande truly worked hard on this album and made it as enjoyable as possible for her fans. You can find the rest of Sweetener on apple music, spotify and other streaming apps.
