Sultry pocket rocket Ariana Grande is back in full force, recently dropping the title track for her highly anticipated upcoming record, and latest single, Dangerous Woman. Exuding a classy noir vibe, Grande puts her husky vocals on show, crooning her suggestive lyrics over a slinky beat.
It’s a flirtatious tune full of evocative themes, with Grande repetitively serenading each chorus, “Something ‘bout you, makes me feel like a dangerous woman” / “Makes me wanna do things that I shouldn’t” over texturally rich beat, rounded out with some grungier rock riffs to fully set the mood. And while the lyrics may be fairly ordinary there’s no denying the attitude and intrigue that radiate from her soulful delivery, that makes Dangerous Woman one infectious tune.
Blending an effortless R&B melody, pop harmonies and edgier riffs as the foundation for this sultry little belter is an impeccable way to present her signature croon and the next era of her music. Ariana Grande has always found herself mixing genres to create her sound, and if Dangerous Woman is the hint as to what’s to come from her upcoming album, we’re in for a real treat.
