On May 20, exactly 5 years ago, Ariana Grande released her much anticipated 3rd studio album Dangerous Woman. 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. What are you favorite tracks, music videos, performances, etc., from the Dangerous Woman era? Sound off below!
