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 #SongAssociation. 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.
