Ariana Grande Performs “No Tears Left To Cry” On ‘Fallon,’ Reveals Album Title
Last night’s (May 1) episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon was dedicated to all things Ariana Grande. The 24-year-old performed “No Tears Left To Cry” for the first time on TV and sat down with the host to spill a lot of tea. For starters, the album formerly known as AG4 now has an official title. “It’s called Sweetener… because it’s kind of about bringing light to a situation or to someone’s life or somebody else who brings light to your life or sweetening the situation,” the hitmaker revealed.
She also gave away much of the tracklist, confirming “R.E.M.” as well as some other rumored titles. “There’s another song called ‘The Light Is Coming’ that I love a lot and there’s one called ‘God Is A Woman’ that I love,” Ariana let slip. “We hid a tracklist in the video, but it’s not in order.” We do know the album opener, however. “The first song… is called ‘Raindrops.'” It turns out the song is a cover of a hit from the 1950s called “Angel Cried,” which her grandfather’s best friend co-wrote.
After some coaxing, Ariana confirmed that Sweetener arrives on July 20. She will promote it with special events on the 20th of each month before it drops, starting with a performance at the Billboard Music Awards on May 20.
