Grande is becoming a ‘Dangerous Woman’



Grande has had multiple chart toppers in the past, with her song ‘Bang Bang’ being nominated for a Grammy in 2015. She has also won awards for her acting roles, such as a Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice award for Best TV Actress in 2014. ‘Dangerous Woman’ is currently number 2 on the iTunes top 100 charts.

Becoming famous through her role in Broadway musical 13 and as Cat Valentine in Victorious, Ariana Grande has made a name for herself in both the music and acting industries.
After Victorious ended, she went off on a spin off series called Sam and Cat with fellow nickelodeon star Jennette McCurdy, which was cancelled after 35 episodes. This was when Grande’s music career kicked off.
In 2014, her second album (My Everything) reached number one on the charts, with popular singles ‘Problem’ with Iggy Azalea and ‘Bang Bang’ with Jessie J and Nicki Manaj.
Sophomore Christina Hanish said, “I remember hearing that song (‘Bang Bang’) on the radio quite often when it came out.”
Since then, she has perused her acting career, with a role on MTV’s new show Scream Queens while touring the world.
Within the past few weeks, Grande has also been promoting her new album Dangerous Woman and even has a website dedicated to it. The album is set to be released on Mar. 20, 2016.
Hanish said, “I think that it is cool how she took the time to create a website for her fans; it shows her dedication to the industry.”
The first single ‘Dangerous Woman’ was released on March 11, a little over a week before the album becomes public. A second single, ‘Be Alright’ will be released on March 18, two days before the album.
Hanish said, “I think that the new song (‘Dangerous Women’) has a different style to it than her other songs, sounding more diverse than her normal pop sound.”
The album cover was released the day before the first single, on Mar. 10, and features Grande in a black bunny mask.
