Ariana Grande released her single Yes, and? for her upcoming album, Eternal Sunshine. Grande has already released six albums and a variety of singles, leaving fans to anticipate how this one will be.

After three years, two-time Grammy winner Ariana Grande released her solo Yes, and? as the lead for the upcoming album,  Eternal Sunshine. The complete album will be released on March 8. 

Yes, and? is a little different from what Grande has released in the past such as her albums like Positions and Dangerous Woman. This vibe is more disco-like than her normal pop-party songs. The way she starts this song, without words and just music to get you into it, is unique. Throughout the song, the volume also seems to increase along with the energy of the song. This is a different take than what she usually does with her songs such as One Last Time, where the song immediately starts with high-energy music and lyrics.

Even though there are some mixed feelings about the song as a whole since this isn’t the kind of music she generally releases, Grande’s vocals continue to be outstanding with the clear recording quality and her ability to use a large range while singing. The music and lyrics are upbeat with a catchy tune to keep her listeners addicted.

Additionally, Grande exuded a certain confidence in her lyrics and their meanings. This song is very clearly about a past relationship and is directed towards her critics. The fact that she made a song about that stands out because in today’s world, when people have so many negative things to say, Grande is pushing forward and ignoring them and being her “own ——- best friend.” 

Additionally, the way Grande has advertised her album adds so well to the overall look and pulls in more people to listen to her music. Yes, and? has already reached 11.2 million views, surpassing all her other hits, including Die for You (Remix), and has been #1 on Spotify for over seven consecutive days. Overall, fans are excited for the rest of the album to come out. The energy of this song is amazing and is a tell-tale of what else she will release.
