Ariana Grande is in full album rollout mode for her third studio LP Dangerous Woman, which dropped earlier this month. As the pint-sized powerhouse checked in with E! News on the magenta carpet at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards last night (May 22), she was vocal and appreciative of all the positive feedback she’s gotten from her fans so far about the album.
“It feels amazing.” Ari told E!’s Sibley Scoles on Live From the Red Carpet. “I’m so grateful for the response. Everybody has been all around positive, and I’m not supposed to read things like that, but I’ve been on Twitter just reading. It’s been the most positive reaction to anything I ever put out. When you work so hard—I’m going to cry.”
Dangerous Woman, the follow-up to her 2014 album My Everything, features guest appearances from Lil Wayne, Future, Macy Gray and one of Ariana’s favorite collaborators, Nicki Minaj. Ari and Nicki first linked up back in 2014 for the single “Bang Bang” also featuring the equally as talented Jessie J. The divas worked together again on “Get On Your Knews” in 2014, this time for placement on Nicki’s album, The Pinkprint.
There aren’t any chart numbers for Dangerous Woman just yet, but judging from Grande’s Twitter timeline, the Ari fans at home are loving the more singer’s more mature and sultry sound.
