Ariana Grande Defends Naming “Sweetener” Song After Pete Davidson


Her album, her decision. Ariana Grande is defending her decision to name a song off her highly-anticipated fourth studio album, Sweetener, after her fiancé, Pete Davidson

The songstress released the track list for the album and among songs "No Tears Left to Cry," "The Light Is Coming,” ”God Is a Woman," "Better Off," "Blazed, " "Borderline," "Breathin," "Everytime," "Get Well Soon," "Goodnight N Go," "Raindrops," "REM," "Successful,” and “Sweetener” is "Pete.”

An Instagram user argued that Grande shouldn’t have named a song after her beau considering they’ve only been together for a couple months. 

"He's my fiancé,” Grande responded in the comments section. “This is my album. I'm an honest and emotional artist and human being and if my openness in my work isn't for you, that's OK; I won't be offended. Still wishing y'all all the love in the world."


Other fans were quick to defend the track and show their excitement, sharing that they can’t wait to hear the song because "their love is so true and kind."

"Thanks,” Grande responded. “It's a special song about the most special human being I've ever met."

"Also, the song is sick," Grande concluded. "Thanks for your kindness."

Sweetener drops August 17 and features collabs with Nicki Minaj, Pharrell Williams and Missy Elliott

We. Can’t. Wait.
