Ariana Grande Teases Album Artwork For 'Sweetener' In Pieces
Fans across the globe were already hyped for Ariana Grande's fourth album, Sweetener, which will be available for preorder starting June 20. But now the GRAMMY-nominated singer has taken to instagram to tease the album's visuals with a mysterious new account and what appears to be a fragment of the album artwork.
The post comes from an account named after the album and features an upside-down shot of Grande's eyelash and brow set against a plain peach-tan background. Mysterious indeed. But the inverted element matches much of the visuals on Grande's website and the artwork for her smash lead single from the new album, "No Tears Left To Cry." Fans have found their way to the new Instagram account, and they are intrigued. The post has already racked up more than 70,000 likes in less than a day.
Sweetener preorders start on June 20, the same day Grande's collaboration with Nicki Minaj, "The Light Is Coming," is set to drop, according to Billboard. Minaj also recently revealed her new album artwork via social media for her own upcoming fourth release, Queen, due out Aug. 10.
If Grande's aforementioned first single from Sweetener is any indication, all of the hype is for good reason. "No Tears Left To Cry" arrived on Apr. 20 and climbed its way to No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was also listed as Apple Music's No. 2 early contender for 2018 song of the summer. Not a bad way to start the follow-up to her GRAMMY-nominated 2016 album Dangerous Woman.
