Ariana Grande Reveals Details About ‘Dangerous Woman’, Shares ‘Let Me Love You’ Clip
So, Ariana Grande. In the span of one month, she went from underdog in the pop world and bratty-doughnut licker to one of the strongest and most exciting females in the genre. How? All thanks to her new single ‘Dangerous Woman’ and her forthcoming junior album of the same title.
Besides ‘Dangerous Woman’, we’ve gotten a taste of what else Ariana has been keeping closely guarded with the deep-house jam ‘Be Alright’. But like most of you – we want more. Whatever info we can get we want it right now. Thankfully, Ariana has sat down with Ryan Seacrest to let us all in on the direction of ‘Dangerous Woman’.
The album is definitely the next step for me. It still sounds like me, but it feels like a more mature, evolved version. There’s a nice blend of the R&B vibes and a nice blend of pop vibes – and the whole body of work is a little darker and sexier and more mature. I’m really proud of it. I feel like there’s been an evolution – like a personal one and it’s represented in my music.
I worked with Max Martin a lot and I worked with Tommy Brown a lot and Victoria Monet. I worked with basically two teams. Somehow, both halves of the album make the perfect blend of what I wanted.
We said this when the single dropped – Ariana was overdue for a more evolved sound. The path she seems to be taking doesn’t seem forced. It’s pretty remarkable that we see an artist as young as her follow her intuition and be right on the money. At this point, we’re happy to admit that ‘Dangerous Woman’ is one of our most anticipated releases of the year.
But what else. Can there be any other information that Ariana is willing to share with us? Turns out there is! Ariana has confirmed that there will be a number of features on the record, including Macy Gray (of all people), Future, and Nicki Minaj. Besides that trio, Lil’ Wayne is slated to be on song called ‘Let Me Love You’. Ariana has this to say about her upcoming collab with Weezy.
The first song on the album was written and recorded over a year ago at this point. The first song that we did, it’s called ‘Let Me Love You’ – and that sort of paints a picture and everything just sort of fell into place. So, all the songs tell the same story, but over a year and a half so it’s interesting.
Interested in hearing a bit of ‘Let Me Love You’? You’re in luck – Ari shared a snippet of the alt-R&B song during a LiveStream with her fans recently.
xHere for this. Absolutely obsessed with the vocal effects on the hook of the song. To us, it seems like the perfect definition of “the evolution of Ariana Grande”. The song title appears on iTunes as of right now, but it’s greyed out. Something tell us we’ll getting it as a promo track sooner rather than later.
After all this info, are you more excited for ‘Dangerous Woman’?
Pre-order ‘Dangerous Woman’ on iTunes.
Ariana has shared an extended clip of ‘Let Me Love You’ on Snapchat. Could this be coming this week?
