Released: December 23, 2019
By: Ariana Grande
There’s no denying that Ariana Grande is one of the most powerful vocalists of our generation, and the best way to prove that is to hear her live. For those unable to attend her Sweetener World Tour and experience her pure vocals, this album is an almost perfect substitute.
Recorded over multiple tour stops – you’ll hear her call out Amsterdam, London and New York – Grande brings her passion and talent to life onstage. She uses songs from a multitude of her albums allowing her to show her success, heartbreak and self-love.
One of the standouts is “Tattooed Heart” from her debut album, Yours Truly. The song is a throwback to 1950s ballads and lets her show her range belting on beautiful notes. It’s a good juxtaposition to her R&B/trap sounds.
Final say: Comes through with the sweetener. ★★★★☆
