Ariana Grande On ‘Sweetener’: “Here is my bleeding heart, and here is a trap beat behind it.”

“There’s definitely some crying-on-the-dancefloor stuff on this one.”

 

“There’s definitely some crying-on-the-dancefloor stuff on this one.”

 

 

It’s standard for an artist to call their upcoming release ~the most personal project they’ve ever created, a page from their diary~ etc, but when Ari says it, I believe her. Following the horrific attack at her concert in Manchester, the pop star has been through an emotional roller coaster, and it’ll reflect in the new tunes. Ari lands in the new issue of The Fader. She opens up extensively about the record, but one quote in particular caught my attention. She details the contrast between light and dark on Sweetener. I’m extremely intrigued.

“I’ve always just been like a shiny, singing, 5-6-7-8, sexy-dance…sexy thing,” she says, “but now it’s like, ‘OK … issa bop — but issa message. Issa bop but also has chunks of my soul in it. Here you go.”

Ari adds, “also, I cried 10 hundred times in the session writing it for you. Here is my bleeding heart, and here is a trap beat behind it.’ There’s definitely some crying-on-the-dancefloor stuff on this one.”

Read the full interview here.

I think “No Tears Left To Cry” walked the line of personal and issa bop quite perfectly, so the rest of the album should be a luscious listen.
