Artist: Ariana Grande

Rating: 6/10

Review: Ariana Grande’s highly anticipated sixth studio album Positions released Friday, October 30th, following the drop and chart success of her lead single by the same name. In this album, she experimented more with R&B–something she had been called to do for years by her large fanbase. She also features heavy string instrumentals, gliding along with jazzy beats, as well as floating vocalizations, with the most memorable tracks definitely being “pov” and “34+35”. Though her style in the album as a whole stands out from any other she has ever written, the songs themselves–which cover similar topics with similar paces–almost blend together.
