Ariana Grande’s return to music

Sara Dimitrijevic ’25

Ariana Grande has been a major influence in the music industry, gaining over 80 million streams on Spotify, 380 million followers on Instagram and eight billion streamed singles.

Recently, she is playing the character Glinda, in a new movie called Wicked Part 1, coming out in theaters on Nov. 27, 2024. Because of this, she took a step back from making music and focused on her acting career more, as well as working on her new beauty brand called R.E.M. Beauty. On the Zach Sang Show, she even noted that it was nice to take a step back from music to help find her voice and inspiration. After four years of waiting, her new Album Eternal Sunshine is coming out March 8 and along with this, she has recently released a single called “Yes, And?”

The album includes thirteen songs, including one with her grandmother. According to CBS News they said, “She has amassed 73 chart entries on the Billboard Hot 100—the fourth most entries for a female artist—including eight number ones and 21 top-10 hits altogether so far.” She released her first album in 2013 and her songs started becoming more and more popular as time went on.

Ariana Grande’s comeback to music will definitely be groundbreaking because of how many people she inspires with her music and how she has been able to heal her fans with her lyrics. I know that myself and many people have been waiting for a long time for her to release music, especially after everything that’s happened in her life with her divorce and the many projects she’s working on. Grande has also hyped up the album on social media and explained on the Zach Sang Show why she took a step back in the first place. “I needed some time to heal and take a step back,” Grande said. “And to focus on new versions of storytelling.”

If we take a look at her past and see how many of her songs, tours and performances have impacted others, it really makes us wonder what her comeback will be like and what we can expect. For example, one of her albums “thank u, next” is arguably one of her most personal albums as she mentioned her failed engagement with comedian Pete Davidson as well as dealing with the loss of Mac Miller. The main theme of the album is about gratitude and self-reliance. Many of her songs in this album reached number one quickly and for some people, they could relate to her and understand her situation as she added that personal touch.

With her new album coming out, her comeback will be a force to be reckoned with and will be a big deal in the music industry since it’s been so long since she has come out with an album. According to Billboard Music, even just her new single is already doing pretty well. “With her new single “Yes, And?” the singer achieved her sixth No. 1 debut on the Billboard Hot 100, tying Taylor Swift for the most No. 1 debuts in history among female artists.”
