    The acapella stuff towards the end is nice but yes, not exactly poppers o'clock

    I still stand behind NTLTC, but Boooooo

    I hope Trolldonna didn’t have any part in this. “Just choose a tacky song title and go from there”. Damage control banger PLZ I don’t care if you have to dress it up as a feature credit

    This is much better than the Nicki one, but the chorus is a bit underwhelming until she goes all Like A Prayer on us

    When you try to come for me, I keep flourishing

    Is my favourite bit of the song

    What a fantastic video! So much wonderful imagery, and let's not even get into the screaming gophers :disco:

    The spoken part is Marge, isn't it?

    That is hands down one of THE best pop videos of the year. 2 for 2 from Grande for me.

    It IS Madonna surely?

    There is so much to appreciate in that video. I wouldn't say I love the song but I can imagine it being a grower.

    It is being reported as Madonna everywhere.

    The song is fantastic, the video tremendous and Ariana Grande is basically killing it for me.

    There's something about her detached presence that is absolutely the kicker - it wouldn't normally but it totally works. I suppose it helps that she is stunning to look at.

    No interest whatsoever, played it for the Madge reference (it is obviously her and what a beautiful touch, having her playing God) and that's REALLY FUCKING GOOD

    I was thinking “wow that’s a lot of praise from Moopy” until I realised half the comments were just from Edward :D

    It’s alright, better than the song anyway. A bit of cheap titilation with painted boobs, and a lot of green screen? Is that all we need now? And the gophers :|

    Well anyway I like a nice video, even if the song is boring.

    PS they can basically show her tit, but the worst hate they can show being thrown at her is “annoying” or “fake”?

    The song isn't really doing it for me (at least yet), but that video is everything. I didn't realise they still made them like that any more.

    The song is ok but the video is pretty compelling, there's something slightly uncanny about her, like she was synthetically engineered in a lab.

    I wish there was a bigger Marge cameo apart from her inspiring voiceover, maybe she's also playing the giant pair of spread thighs.

    I like (don't love) the song but the video is very good indeed. I don't mind any of the songs from this album but where are the "Into You", "Side to Side", "Break Free", "Love Me Harder"s??? I'm just getting a lot of "Dangerous Woman"s

    That's great fun...I mean, surely the screaming gophers aren't in the song and just the video, eh?

    Both singles are pretty damn great, particularly in how they're super different shades of mid-tempo. Production and vocals are super luxurious, too.

    It's hardly a new thing - just that they have embraced social media as well.

    Grande (featuring Madonna) has it now suggesting God is a Woman, Madonna herself had it nearly thirty years ago (whimper) for portraying Jesus as black. And she wasn't the first. The God botherers were equally as fervent back then.

    This is true. But they're awfully judgey for people who think only God can judge.

    The videos for both proper singles (is The Light Is Coming a single? I can't tell anymore) are so good. She's really bringing it with the visuals this era. Really like the song as well. She's not coming out with the sort of stuff I was expecting her to. It'd be so easy for her to have a big hit with a ballad or a Chainsmokers-type track.

    My Tesco club card vouchers total £9 so I shall use them to get this album I think. Either that or washing tabs.

    Ariana sounded great in her carpool karaoke, James less so.

    Excited to listen to the album tomorrow, although sadly it doesn't look like there's a vinyl release :(
