Ariana Grande Premieres a New Song from Sweetener in a Game of Song Association | ELLE

  • Published on Jul 12, 2018
  • Arianators, unite! Vocal powerhouse and perennial record-breaker Ariana Grande took time out of our August cover shoot to try her hand at Song Association. The rules of the game are simple: we give Ariana a word, and she has ten seconds to sing that word in a song. Play along and see what tunes she comes up with - including a sneak peek of a new track, “R.E.M,” from her upcoming album Sweetener.

    All my fellow American our November 6TH Mid-Term Elections will decide:
    If a female can choose whether to go through with a pregnancy. Can a family member come back to America to live regardless of their religious beliefs. If families can be made whole again without having to pay thousands or tens of thousands of dollars just to be reunited. Will pollution continue to destroy our environment and cause more harmful weather conditions that will flood our homes and lands. Will our government pay teachers what they deserve and make college tuition-free for all Americans? Will healthcare coverage be guaranteed to every American? Will you be able to take your family members who are out of work to see a doctor and get them proper treatment. Will the family members that can’t afford the cost of cancer treatments be able to. Will the Federal Government make cannabis legal which is far less harmful then Gin, Whiskey, Wine or Beer, then free those people currently in prison for non-violent drug offenses! Imagine the type of world you want to live in and know that if you vote, you will see real change.
    This is literally the most important election of our lifetimes. Three Branches of Government are being controlled… By Who?
