After earning two top 10 placements with ‘Focus’ (her third album’s original first single) and ‘Dangerous Woman’ (the set’s official lead release), Ariana Grande is undoubtedly hoping for a redo with “Into You,” the second single lifted from her tertiary LP ‘Dangerous Woman’ (due May 20).
Delivered tonight to her faithful #Arianators, the song follows a number of other teasers delivered from ‘Woman’ including ‘Be Alright’ and the Lil Wayne-assisted ‘Let Me Love You.‘ Collectively helping the album pass the 40k mark on preorders alone, tuck in below for your first listen at ‘Into You’ and tell us if it’s just what the powerhouse needs to be lifted to #1…
Yes, yes, and yes again!
Why wasn’t this the first single? It’s everything we would’ve expected from Ariana at this stage in her career had we never known of a ‘Dangerous Woman’ or ‘Focus.’ In other words, it’s progressive EDM-drenched pop (hints from her previous two albums) with a t0uch of Urban for crossover appeal.
However one feels about Ari (i.e. her desire to play up her maturity – visually and sonically), her overall progress cannot be denied. She carefully treads the line of giving her fans what they want while at least reaching for the next tier of her artistic journey. No other way to spin it, radio will eat this song up if the video built to support it is visually as appealing as the song is sonically.
