Pop sensation, Ariana Grande, is finally back with her new album, “Dangerous Woman.”
After months of releasing singles and teasers, Grande shows off her more mature side with this album release.
The 23-year-old singer expresses herself through dance hits and heartfelt lyrics with an experimental R&B sound.
The first song on the album, “Moonlight,” as well as the song, “I Don’t Care,” are very much a throw back to her last two albums, with their fuzzy doo-wop sound and beautiful crooning.
The song, “Dangerous Woman,” has proven to be a hit when it debuted in March at no.10 on Billboard’s Hot 100.
This single is something different for Grande, while she still gets to show off her exquisite vocals, she explores this bluesy rock ‘n’ roll vibe with her soulful and intimate lyrics.
Featured on the album is Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Future, and a name we haven’t heard for a while, Macy Gray.
Gray’s raspy voice accompanies Grande’s belts on the track “Leave Me Lonely,” which takes the listener to church.
“Greedy,” no. seven on the album, is a jazzy pop song that is highly anticipated by fans to be the next hit.
This party song has a theatrical bridge with flawless harmonies and immediately goes into a key change that takes the listener to another level.
“‘Greedy’ is the jam! It’s such a fun and sexy song. I can’t wait to hear it on the dance floor,” gushed student, Allie Ramirez.
Finishing this musical journey is “Thinking Bout You,” this heart felt track that leaves fans breathless is a must listen.
This album upholds the image and voice Grande has created for herself, yet it also branches out and shows her growth.
Check out “Dangerous Woman,” you will not be disappointed by this diverse and fun album.
