Back in early May, Ariana Grande served as guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where she announced that her next album will be called Sweetner, which is dropping this Summer. In addition to that, she also revealed that she would be doing something "special" every 20th of each month leading up to the album’s release, and it appears she’s sticking to that plan. Following up “No Tears Left To Cry” & her feature on Nicki Minaj’s new single “Bed,” Ariana decides to come through today and share her new single called “The Light Is Coming,” featuring fellow “Bed”-collaborator Nicki Minaj.
The Pharrell-produced track can be yours for free when you pre-order the album, Sweetner, now on iTunes. Take a listen and let us know what you think. Look for its music video to be dropping Wednesday at noon.
“That’s what Nicki Minaj does, she elevates a record. If you’re going to have a rapper on a song, they need to really really really be there for a reason, and she does that every single time,” Ariana said about working with Nicki.
Ay yo, trophy wife, out you won me
Until you had to find out it's one me
Now you benched, aww, your bum knee
Now I'm the bad guy, call me Chun-Li (ooh)
'Cause you was slippin', yep, you clumsy
And everything I peep, can't just unsee
Sips tea, and it's unsweet
Respect bad gyal when mi done speak
- Nicki Minaj
