Three Years Later… Ariana Grande Is Still A “Dangerous Woman”

Last updated:

Ariana Grande's album title track turns three-years-old.

I have a soft spot for the Dangerous Woman era. It remains one of my favorite pop records in recent years because it's got an array of bumpin' bops and vibey mid-tempos and, unlike Thank U, Next, it pre-dates the traumatic events Ariana's life would soon encounter. Those harrowing experiences were ultimately filtered into TU,N. Her latest record is vividly visual in that sense, but Dangerous Woman allows the listener to use their imagination far more. It was innocent time in the pop star's life – her main focus was writing badass tunes with Macy Gray and Lil Wayne and wearing cute animal ears.
