You know you’re at the top of your game when you can duet with gay trail­blazer Troye

Si­van (on the slinky Dance To This), then ask

Madonna to be the voice of the almighty on

God Is A Woman. Yes, Ari­ana is now Grande by name and grande by na­ture. On this, her fourth al­bum, she sounds like an artist ready to make her mark and make a dif­fer­ence. Lyri­cally in­flu­enced by the Manch­ester bomb­ing at her con­cert last year (which killed 23 fans), Sweet­ener comes com­plete with a horde of guests in­clud­ing Phar­rell Williams, Missy El­liott and Nicki Mi­naj. That it also sounds like Ari­ana put her heart and soul into this is the big leap for­ward we’d all hoped for.
