Ariana Grande has been teasing fans about her upcoming album cover titled Sweetener on her social media channels for the past weeks. The singer even created an Instagram account solely for promoting the album, on which she has been posting one piece of the image every day for the past week.
Yesterday the No Tears Left To Cry singer finally posted the last remaining piece, revealing the cover in its full glory. The cover shows Ari rocking a stylish platinum low pony and wearing a see-through shirt that completely exposes the singer’s breasts and nipples.
The photo was not just chosen randomly. The 25-year old superstar explained to a fan on Twitter that there’s actually some deeper thoughts behind the selected artwork.
For starters, this is the first album cover of the former Nickelodeon star that is in full color – all of her past covers have been in black and white. Grande revealed the symbolic meaning behind the change of direction, saying: “It’s kind of about bringing light to a situation or to someone’s life, or somebody else who brings light to your life, or sweetening the situation”.
The choice to appear on the cover see-through has hidden meaning to it as well, Ari reveals in another tweet. A fan asked, “how did you come up with the see-through idea?”, to which the singer responded:
“i showed aaron a titty photo and he was sitting opposite me and he said ‘i even love it clothed’ and that was kind of it for me at the time i had been feeling ‘transparent’ for a while & the simplicity of that was like oh duh wow my bestie a genius. everything clicked after that.”
It makes a lot of sense, actually. Being one of this planets most famous faces, all of your private affairs are put under a magnifying glass by the media and it may feel like your life can really be ‘transparent’.
Sweetener is available for pre-order from June 20.
