Review: Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande

Dangerous Woman by Ariana GrandeAriana Grande seems more comfortable on her third album, Dangerous Woman. Sure, for a while it seemed she can pull her songs off relatively effortlessly, what with that voice of hers that defies her age, but with this record she seemed to really know what she’s doing – what she wants to say, how she intends to say it, the works. With a solid statement running throughout – the whole “I am my own woman” thing her contemporaries have long latched on – plus an easy skip through genres, with a keen ear on hooks, of course, Dangerous Woman is mostly consistent and quite efficient. Sure, it’s a pop record, meaning it wouldn’t necessarily hold my attention (it’s a personal thing, this) but there some particularly inspired turns: “Greedy”, for instance, is a soul anthem that you’d be surprised to hear from Ariana. But then again, she has that voice. [NB]4/5
