    Lots of hints that the single is called "No Tears Left To Cry". Out April 27th APPARENTLY.

    Surely on course for her biggest 'era' yet.

    The last album was great. She pulled up a chair at the big pop girl table. Hoping for even more from this one

    Let's face it, "the terror attack is the promo" really puts cwej's LACK OF AMBITION proposing a mere DEAD BABY for Adele to SHAME!

    Can't wait for her to terrorise the charts, it feels like she's on a different level to all the other members of the teen skank generation. There are at least two shaking-and-crying level pop songs in her back catalogue already.

    08 The Way (feat. Mac Miller)
    06 Baby I
    08 Right There (feat. Big Sean)
    04 Problem (feat. Iggy Azalea)
    09 Break Free (feat. Zedd)
    00 Bang Bang (with Jessie J & Nicki Minaj)
    10 Love Me Harder (feat. The Weeknd)
    09 One Last Time
    06 Focus
    08 Dangerous Woman
    11 Into You
    07 Side to Side (feat. Nicki Minaj)
    09 Everyday (feat. Future)

    judging by the title it does sound like it'll be a huge disco gay stomper but watch it be a tropical house infused chill-out jam or maybe she'll go COUNTRY and hasn't told anyone yet :rolleyes:

    Three if you count Bang Bang as shaking and crying in the MAKE IT STOP sense

    (but also Side To Side and Break Free are also clearly 10s)

    I always felt I was far too old to listen to this chick but I did thoroughly enjoy her last album.

    It could literally be a big ballad as well. I was wondering if it could be directly Manchester related.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what she does, I think it'll be huge.

    I'm going to go for an upbeat track, ballad second single. I don't think they'd be crass enough to use the 1 year anniversary so unashamedly with anything directly related.

    I was in the same boat, love.

    However, after a couple of road trips last year where my travellin' companion insisted on blasting her INCESSANTLY, I've rather come round. The Dangerous Woman album alone is chock fulla hits :disco:

    If she doesn't rinse the bombing for all it's worth I'm OUT.

    Unless she drops something close to the sheer scale of Break Free.

    07 The Way (feat. Mac Miller)
    ?? Baby I - don't know her
    ?? Right There (feat. Big Sean) - don't know her
    09 Problem (feat. Iggy Azalea)
    10 Break Free (feat. Zedd)
    00 Bang Bang (with Jessie J & Nicki Minaj)
    10 Love Me Harder (feat. The Weeknd)
    08 One Last Time
    06 Focus - pretty objectively awful but inexplicably enjoyable once in awhile
    07 Dangerous Woman
    10 Into You - summer 2016 encapsulated
    09 Side to Side (feat. Nicki Minaj)
    08 Everyday (feat. Future)

    She isn't afraid of feature or two now is she

    More than any other artist, I think she suffers from rubbish-chorus syndrome. Great voice, great verses and then just noise.

    Problem was four years ago at this point?

    I mean I love both but it's a bit odd levelling this critique at Ariana considering Fantasy aside MARIAH was hardly known for her pre-Emancipation choruses!

    While two of the worst choruses in living memory Focus and Problem say "spare me a dime?"

    THAT is what we are saying is potentially huge :D

    I'll reserve judgment

    i was just gonna say it's going to be great and now that i'm actually hearing it, i'm not sure. there's definitely something about it and some cool bits but i'm not sure how it comes together. might need a couple of listens. i can't see we on another mentality not grating at any point of time though.

    There's something uplifting about it, most likely the instrumentals. But it sounds kinda....disjointed. I HATE the "pickin' it up, pickin' it up" bits. They're annoying and sound out of place.

    Yaaas Queen of Basic Gays.

    I like it in general, after some listens. But I wish there was a climax of some sort.

    That teaser clip was just a bit misleading

    I was really surprised when the first verse hit and it is a bit jarring but I do like it

    The song is basically one long chorus with occasional verses innit? I think this will be huge

    I really like this on first listen. There's a couple of Meghan Trainor-esque bits that I could do without but otherwise I'm here for it.
