Pharrell handles more than half of the production with Grande laying down warm, colorful melodies, the 15-tracker speaks on love, happiness, strength, and womanhood. It's a well crafted pop album, and beneath the pastel tone is an earnest message that resonates with Grande's dedicated fanbase and beyond, check out "breathin," "God is a woman," "blazed," "raindrops (an angel cried)," and "better off."
