When I learned that Ariana Grande won this year’s Grammy award for Best Pop Album for Sweetener, I admit my left eyebrow went up. Well, I was not in a good position to judge the winner for that category at that time because I have only heard the hits she released from that album (“God Is A Woman”, “No Tears Left to Cry” and “Breathin’”), and I did not even like “God is a Woman”. Also, she had very stiff competition in the category, with Taylor Swift, P!nk, Kelly Clarkson, Camila Cabello, and Shawn Mendes, all with very solid and interesting pop albums. At that time, I was more decidedly in favor of Taylor Swift or P!nk, whose albums I’ve had already heard and felt were very well-made. However, now that I have listened to Sweetener, I realized the Grammy voters may have been on to something. Ariana’s earlier albums (My Everything and Dangerous Woman), although they contained some really solid hits, had its peaks and valleys and there were songs in them that were uninteresting, as if she was just coasting along. Here in Sweetener though, the record company or Ariana, could’ve chosen any of the full songs as singles, and I’m sure they would’ve charted. It’s always refreshing to hear an artist just work freely with her vocal expression especially if they have THE voice like Ariana. Her songs here sound fresh and breezy and I could pick six of them, not even including the four singles released (one was a promotional single), as my top picks. I will tell you why.
