The singer has published this Friday, January 12, a song called “Yes, and?” in all music platforms but without a music video.
Ariana Grande has not released any new music since October 2020. This week, finally, this musical silence has come to an end. The “God is a woman” singer has returned to music with the song “Yes, and?”.
The song remembers automatically to Madonna and the “voguing”. Its base and musicality has clear references to the 80s and 90s pop music, and the fans were quick to compare the song to Madonna’s “Vogue“.
The theme of the song is to do whatever you want without caring what the others might think. It’s like, “I’ve done it, yes, and?” A marvelous response to the haters that criticize every thing the singer does. On the lyrics we can read “Your business is yours, and mine is mine. Why do you care so much whose dick I ride?“.
On the lyrics, Ariana talks about all the comments she has received about her body and her physical appearance but, mostly, she speaks about the ones that she have got after breaking up with her husband, Dalton Gómez, and starting a new relationship with the actor Ethan Slater.
Apparently, Ariana met him at the film recordings for the movie “Wicked”, a musical base don the “Wizard of Oz” universe. On this movie, Ariana got her first leading role in a movie, being that one of the reasons why she has been apart from her music career. Moreover, The filming was also paralyzed by the strike of scriptwriters and actors in Hollywood.
The song, “Yes, and?” was produced by Max Martin and Ilya Salmanzadeh. A surprising thing was the intro to the song, being almost 50 seconds long. During this time, the base of the song evolves from the beginning with a cushion formed by vocal chops to an end where percussion reigns accompanied by runs and high notes that Ariana improvises on the base before starting to sing.
The artist has announced that the music video will be published this night, and some fans are asking for a dance visual that fits the song aesthetic. Besides that, Ariana Grande has also confirmed that there will be an album soon, and it’s going to be called Eternal Sunshine. By the moment we only can enjoy the official cover of it, or like Ariana said, “one of them”.
Ariana Grande is starting a new era stronger than ever. By the moment, we only have an exquisite piece from an upcoming album that promises to be one of the best ones in 2024. We will stay glued to her Instagram, waiting for more news soon.
