Ariana Grande’s new single, “Dangerous Woman,” from the album with the same name drops today. It was earlier revealed that the new album will have 15 tracks where three will be collaborations.
Hollywood Life reports that “Dangerous Woman” has not always been the name of the new album. When Grande first announced that she’s working on an album, she teased fans saying that the new album will be called “Moonlight.” It was only until a few weeks before her album releases that she announced on Snapchat that she changed her mind and will call the new album “Dangerous Woman” instead.
On a webchat with fans, the 22-year-old singer explained why she changed the name of her album. “’Moonlight’ is a lovely song and it’s a lovely title,” she said. “It’s really romantic, and it definitely ties [the album] together, the old music and the new music, but ‘Dangerous Woman’ is a lot stronger. I want to be empowering my fans.”
A few days ago, fans got to a snippet fo the track “Dangerous Woman” when it appeared in an ad for the “Victoria’s Secret Swim Special”. When the show aired on CBS March 9, fans got to her a longer chunk of the song.
In the video snippet, Grande sings “Somethin’ ’bout you makes me feel like a dangerous woman,” and from the small preview, it sounds like a more mature number than some of her earlier materials.
Unlike her previous hits, the lead single has a neo-waltz arrangement. In a video chat with her fans, Grande proudly declared that she is taking a more mature direction with the new album. “It sits in its own world,” she said. “It doesn’t sound like anything that I’ve put out before.”

Aside from various appearances on television and award shows, Grande has been last spotted in TV series “Scream Queens.” Grande’s new album “Dangerous Woman” is now available for pre-order.
