100-word review

ARIANA GRANDE

‘SWEETENER’

Released: Aug. 17, 2018

Label: Republic Records

With Ariana Grande’s fourth studio album, “Sweetener,” I’d say this is her best work yet.

Whether it has to do with the suffering she went through from the aftermath of her Manchester, England, concert in 2017, or her new, flourishing relationship with fiancé and comedian Pete Davidson, “Sweetener” is a hit and a success from any angle you choose to view.

Not only is there a track for every mood you might be in, blending pop sounds with trap beats, but all 15 tracks give listeners a mature Grande with particularly perfect vocals from her four-octave voice.

KEY CUTS: “Get Well Soon,” “Sweetener,” “God Is a Woman”
