This was arguably Ariana's last pure pop effort, so many people look back on it fondly (myself included). While not the first time Ariana had worked with Max Martin, Dangerous Woman was an even bigger Max Martin extravaganza than the previous record. When it comes to commercial performance, it debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 with 175k units sold. Furthermore, the era spawned 4 singles:

  • Dangerous Woman (#8 peak)
  • Into You (#13 peak)
  • Side to Side (feat. @Style.) (#4 peak)
  • Everyday (feat. Future) (#55 peak)

Let's not forget that the album was originally titled Moonlight with Focus being released as the lead single and peaking at #7 on the Hot 100. While Focus ended up getting scrapped, it remained on the Japanese edition of the album, which also features the superior album art:

While not a single, Let Me Love You (feat. Lil Wayne) also received a music video barely cracking the Hot 100 at #99:

Finally, let's talk Step On Up - the Ariana b-side that all Britney fans should be familiar with. Why? Well, it spawned a fanmade remix featuring the instrumental of Gimme More and amassed a cult following of sorts sitting at 19 million views on YouTube:

The original was a Target bonus track, and it's been finally released on all streaming platforms to coincide with the 5-year anniversary of Dangerous Woman:

Kind of pointless if you ask me because nothing can top the remix, but I guess it's cute. They should've taken notes from Dula Doop and released the fanmade remix officially. That would probably generate more buzz too, tbh. :lizzie_oops_dancing_red_maguire_hillary_duff:

Moonlight, Dangerous Woman, Into You, Side to side, Everyday, Greedy, Sometimes are all amazing with Into You being the best pop track I've ever heard.

However, nothing tops Touch It. I only discovered it a few months ago and have been obsessed with it ever since.

Ugh, the FACTS!!! :yesplease_yas_agree_preach: Into You is the #1 single that got away, and Touch It is basically Into You 2.0 but better. I was actually so shocked when I realized that it peaked at #13. For some reason, I was convinced it peaked at #2. :ohmygawd_britney_omg_shocked_wow_holy_crap_gasp_shocked_itz_in_the_zone_white:

The spillage, omg. :hahaha_tiffany_ny_new_york_ms_miss_cackle_laugh_lol_haha_hehe_lmao:

I would even consider saying Thank U, eggs deserved the number one just for the music video alone, but can’t sit idly while Problem, Break Free, No Tears Left To Cry, God Is a Woman, BUWYGIB all got out peaked. Not the ponytail stan clawing it’s way out right now :imdying_wendy_crying_sad_tears_sobbing:

Ddd I haven’t listened to this album. Is it worth it? I love Into You.

Hard to say. I hadn't listened to it in a long-azz while, but then we had that Dangerous Woman megarate. I did send in my ratings, but I'm not sure if it ever ended up taking place. Either way, I came to the realization that it hasn't exactly held up. It could've been cut like 5-6 songs short, but the songs that are good are really freakin' good. You should listen to it and add some of the bops to your playlist. :yesplease_yas_agree_preach:
