Ariana Grande has taken the world by storm, but even she needs time to unwind and let out her emotions. In the first trailer for her upcoming Netflix documentary Excuse Me, I Love You, the Grammy-winning songstress, 27, reveals just how much the Sweetener tour meant to her. “[I know that] it’s been hard physically and mentally,” the singer says to her dancers in an intimate behind-the-scenes moment. “But this show saved my life this year,” Ariana says through tears.

Though the moment is truly packed with seriousness and gratitude, Ariana finds the humor in the moments leading up to her next performance. “[I think] I just inhaled a tear,” she candidly says to the laughter and appreciation of those around her. It’s such a tender moment that’s perfectly juxtaposed by the high-octane energy of Ariana’s shows, which fans will have the opportunity to see on Netflix just in time for Christmas.
The documentary follows Ariana, her dancers, family, and band on their sold-out global Sweetener tour, which ran from March 18 to December 22, 2019. Ariana’s Sweetener, released on August 17, 2018, was absolutely beloved by fans and came at a time in the singer’s life when she was undergoing immense personal change. Sweetener‘s release came out at the height of fans’ fascination with her romance with Pete Davidson, to whom she was previously engaged and even wrote a song about on her album. Following their split in October 2018, Ariana dropped Thank U, Next, released on February 8, 2019, which is featured heavily in the trailer.
Footage from Excuse Me, I Love You features Ari performing songs like “7 Rings,” the dominate backing tune to the trailer. But it’s not just about the performances for Ariana. In fact, fans get never-before-seen glimpses of life on the road, stages of planning, styling, choreography, and so much more. Ariana shows off her unfiltered, authentic self for the documentary crew and fans are just brimming with excitement to see the final product.
Luckily, they won’t have to wait long. Excuse Me, I Love You debuts on Netflix in the days leading up to Christmas, making it the perfect holiday gift from the singer to her legions of adoring fans. We cannot wait to see what it took for Ariana and her many creative collaborators to bring the Sweetener tour together in 2019!
