Ariana Grande – ‘Dangerous Woman’ Album Review (Track By Track)

Ariana Grande – ‘Dangerous Woman’ Album Review (Track By Track)

Ariana shows maturity and poise in her brand new album ‘Dangerous Woman’…

We break the album down track by track individually with their own respective scores:

1. Moonlight – A nice little mellow beginning to a bop-tastic album. 3/5

2. Dangerous Woman – The debut single shows no cracks even though it has been a few weeks since debut. Such a catchy and sexy track! “Something bout, something bout youuuu.” 5/5

3. Be Alright – Dance the night away to this vogue-esque classy pop jam. 5/5

4. Into You – Where is my hair? This track is EVERYTHING! Literally blown away by how energetic and amazing this track is. Sounds like a perfect club banger too!! 5/5

5. Side to Side (feat. Nicki Minaj) – These two together can do no wrong. This is the third time they’ve collaborated (“Get On Your Knees”, “Bang Bang”) and have again pieced together another bop. I love the Jamaican vibes, plus the lyrics are so infectious! 5/5

6. Let Me Love You (feat. Lil Wayne) – Hmm, not sure what to think of this song. It has its moments but it’s not as amazing as the album’s earlier tracks. Ariana sounds amazing though but I could have done without the Lil Wayne verse. 2.5/5

7. Greedy – We are back in business! Such a cute track that resonates well with Ariana’s earlier material. A carefree sunshine kind of feel that strangely makes you bring out all your inner sass. 5/5

8. Leave Me Lonely (feat. Macy Gray) – Now this is quite the unexpected collaboration! It’s unique, ambitious and quite experimental for Ariana. All in all it makes for a lovely musical experience. 5/5

9. Everyday (feat. Future) – I told you this album was full of bop-tastic material. Everything about this track works, Ariana slaying with the verses while Future brings the catchy hook. 4/5

10. Sometimes – “Cause we’re collectin’ moments”…. A meaningful and powerful track that turns things down a little. It allows for Ariana to bring out her emotional side again and delve into her past and current relationship. 5/5

11. I Don’t Care – A slower ballad that channels Ariana’s theatrical love. It’s good but nothing overtly exciting here… It’s not bad though. 2.5/5

12. Bad Decisions – Probably the most naughtiest we have heard Ariana be. Is this her first time dropping the F bomb? Also YAS at the “bad bitch” line. Rihanna teas right here peeps! 3/5

13. Touch It – Love, love, love. Another track on par with “Into You” that will leave you speechless. Why is this a bonus track? This needs to be a single ASAP! 5/5

14. Knew Better/Forever Boy – Sexy, chilled and badass. Ariana tells off one of her exes and what they missed out on (ain’t that the truth) before closing on a different tone for the final arrangmeent with a new love. 3.5/5

15. Thinking Bout You – A perfect closing track for the deluxe edition. It’s not often an album closes out with a vulnerable and emotional jam.  5/5

Overall Thoughts: Ariana does not disappoint in the follow up to her hit album ‘My Everything’ by showcasing a more flirtatious, sexy and mature side.

Overall Rating: 9/10
