It’s time to “Focus” on Ariana Grande! The 22-year-old singer has been hinting that her third album, Dangerous Woman, will be released soon, after teasing new material for what felt like forever. And now we know, it’ll come out on May 20! Arianators know one thing is for sure when it comes to the new LP — it’s going to be amazing. Want to know more about it, though? Let us help!
1. Dangerous Woman hasn’t always been the name.
When Ariana first announced that she was putting out at new album, she was teasing it under the name Moonlight. But just about two weeks before releasing the first single, “Dangerous Woman,” Ari took to Snapchat to sneakily reveal that she had changed her mind.
2. The new album title is a reflection of how she feels about herself these days.
Ariana held a video chat with her fans on Feb. 29 to talk about Dangerous Woman — and explain why she changed its name. “Moonlight is a lovely song and it’s a lovely title,” she said. “It’s really romantic, and it definitely ties [the album] together, the old music and the new music, but Dangerous Woman is a lot stronger. I want to be empowering my fans.” We certainly agree!
3. It will have 15 tracks, including three collaborations.
No details have been revealed involving who will be featured on the album or if a deluxe version will be released with more songs, but that’s certainly a lot to look forward to!
4. She performed two Dangerous Woman songs on Saturday Night Live!
Ariana took the SNL stage as the host and musical guest on March 12, perfectly timed to promote her new songs. In between cracking us up in skits, she sang the title track, “Dangerous Woman,” and another song “Be Alright,” which she just released on March 18!
5. The album isn’t just full of new music, it’s a new sound too.
In the same video chat where she talked about Dangerous Woman, Ariana proudly declared the more mature direction she is taking as an artist and with the album. “It sits in its own world,” she said. “It doesn’t sound like anything that I’ve put out before.”
