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.

    4:03 "Love by Nat King Cole". She totally would have had it if she just sang a little more. "E. Is even more than anyone that you adore and LOVE is all that I can give to you. LOVE is more than just a game too. Two in LOVE can make it. Take my heart but please don't break it. LOVE was made for me and youuuuuuu"😊💖💕💓
