Grammy Award-nominated singer Ariana Grande has announced that her upcoming highly anticipated fourth studio album Sweetener will be released on 17 August via Republic Records.
Alongside the announcement, Grande has unveiled a new album track, produced by Pharrell Williams, ‘The Light Is Coming’ ft. Nicki Minaj, which is out now. You can hear it below.
Fans pre-ordering Sweetener through Ariana Grande’s website, à la carte or with bundle purchase, will receive pre-sale ticket access to a future Headline Tour. Fans are also now able to purchase a special bundle including the debut of Grande’s new fragrance, Cloud, that is only available as a limited-edition rollerball exclusively through the artist’s website. Additionally, Grande’s online store is set to unveil new merchandise today.
With her powerful vocals and astonishing range, Ariana Grande has emerged as one of the most magnetic and massively successful performers in pop music today. At age 24 she’s delivered three platinum-selling albums and surpassed 18 billion streams, in addition to nabbing four Grammy Award nominations and landing eight hits in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Since making her full-length debut with 2013’s Yours Truly (featuring the game-changing, triple-platinum smash ‘The Way’), Grande has brought her striking vocal presence to a genre-blurring breed of pop, taking on R&B, soul, and electronic music with equal nuance and assurance. Arriving in 2014, her sophomore effort, My Everything, garnered a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album and spawned the 6x-platinum hits ‘Problem’ and ‘Bang Bang’ (a Grammy nominee for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance).
Grande embraced a more uncompromising vision with her third album Dangerous Woman. With People noting that the record “celebrates feminine might,” Entertainment Weekly praised Grande for “having something meaningful to say with that jaw-dropping voice — one of the most exquisite in pop today.” Grande wrapped up her widely lauded Dangerous Woman Tour in support of the album last year, performing 85 arena shows worldwide. Prior to the arrival of Sweetener, her recent single ‘No Tears Left To Cry’ debuted at #1 on iTunes in 88 countries worldwide.
