Summer releases to lighten your mood

From the first strains of the lead single (and album title) Ariana Grande is here to prove to both her fans and the music world that she is now, a “Dangerous Woman.” While some still see this former Disney star as a child star, on this album, Ms. Grande is all grown up. The 80’s style strains of “Dangerous Woman” stakes her claim for potential future pop queen, while the remainder of the album follows along the same theme; Ms. Grande has certainly grown up. Like Britney and Christina before her, Grande has chosen tracks (and album artwork) that demonstrate her journey into adulthood.

Tracks like the reggae styled “Side To Side” and “Let Me Love You” feature R&B artists Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne respectively, giving Grande a sense of street cred. “Bad Decisions” is the kind of party pop track her fans have come to love from her, while tracks like “I Don’t Care” and “Sometimes” give a sultry air to Grande’s already proven vocal abilities. One of the standouts on the album is “Leave Me Lonely”, including 50’s style track, with heavy piano and guest vocals from Macy Gray, who adds a touch of old school vocals to any track she guests on. “Dangerous Woman” is a natural progression for an artist that shows with this package that she has much more yet to come.
