The track smolders with Grande’s soaring vocals over a mid-tempo beat of slinky strings and electronic riffs, giving fans a taste of the new sonic direction the “Love Me Harder” singer promised during a Twitcam chat with fans in February. Grande performed a short a cappella version of another song, “Be Alright,” from the upcoming LP, during the chat, in which she also revealed that Dangerous Woman will include 15 standard edition tracks, three vocal collaborations with other artists, and an accompanying tour.
While a release date has yet to be confirmed, Grande is set to perform two songs from Dangerous Woman on the March 12 edition of Saturday Night Live.
