Sweet­ener (Is­land) POP

Irish Independent - Weekend Review - - CULTURE -

It’s her first al­bum since the ter­ror­ist at­tack at her Manch­ester con­cert that claimed 22 lives and the hor­rors of that night have, ap­par­ently, in­formed this al­bum. But, rather than dark­ness, Grande has cho­sen to look at all the great as­pects of life and the re­sults are im­pres­sive: Sweet­ener is an al­bum packed with cast-iron pop songs and vo­cally strong R ’n’ B num­bers and Phar­rell Wil­liams’ pro­duc­tion hits the spot time and again.
