Ariana Grande has made a comeback following the heartbreaking terrorist bombing attack that killed 23 people and injured over 500 during one of her shows on May 22, 2017, at the Manchester Arena in the UK.
As a result, Grande suspended some dates from her Dangerous Woman Tour, had a benefit concert and raised $23 million for the bombing victims and affected families, and has kept low-key on social media. In 2018, she participated in the March for Our Lives to support gun control legislation and had a set in Coachella. After almost a year of being ~somewhat~ missing in action, Grande is back and ready to continue kicking ass with new music.
On April 20th, she surprised fans with a new single and video called No Tears Left To Cry as part of her upcoming fourth studio album. She also shocked fans with a new hairdo—light silver locks and a low ponytail.
On Tuesday night, Grande gave her first major interview in the hype of the new production. She gave a lot of spoilers on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, including the release date, track titles, and album title.
"It's called Sweetener," she said, "because it's kind of about bringing light to a situation or to someone's life or somebody else who brings light to your life or sweetening the situation."
Some of the songs fans can expect on the album, slated for a summer 2018 release, include: The Light is Coming, Raindrops, and God is a Woman. She also expressed that on the 20th of every month—leading to the album release—she'll surprise fans with more goodies. Check out the complete interview below:
