Ariana Grande Drops Explicit New Single, Bizarre Video for ‘God Is a Woman’

In the wee hours of Friday morning Ariana Grande dropped “God Is a Woman,” the second single from her forthcoming fourth studio album “Sweetener,” and the song features surprisingly explicit lyrics for the singer:

“You love it how I move you
You love it how I touch you
My one, when all is said and done
You’ll believe God is a woman
My one, it lingers when we’re done
You’ll believe God is a woman”

The armchair analysts are already hard at work on the song’s lyrics. Later in the day, Grande dropped a completely bonkers Dave Meyers-helmed video for the song that features her standing on a planet surrounded by a galaxy, then being pelted with negative words (which bounce off of her) by a bunch of white men, then surrounded by animated wolves, then on top of a lighthouse, and at the very end she’s part of a mock-remake of Michaelangelo’s “Creation of Adam” in which she’s reaching out to a black woman (hence the song title).

Grande recently told Jimmy Fallon that the song is her grandmother’s favorite from the album.

The song was produced by Ilya for MXM and written by Grande, Max Martin, Savan Kotecha, Rickard Göransson, and Ilya. The Dave Meyers-directed video for the song is premiering today at noon ET.

The album, which drops on Aug 17, is said to be deeply personal and inspired by Grande’s experiences over the past two years.
