Ariana Grande Chooses 'Yes, And?' As Lead Single

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande recently shared insights into her decision to release 'Yes, And?' as the lead single from her upcoming album, 'Eternal Sunshine.' The pop superstar expressed her belief that the upbeat, house-influenced track would be the perfect introduction to her new musical era. In a video posted on social media, Grande discussed her rationale for selecting the song, emphasizing its all-encompassing nature and its ability to evoke a sense of introspection and universal experiences.

During a preview session with her label, Republic Records, Grande highlighted 'Yes, And?' among several other tracks, urging listeners to approach it with fresh ears and a sense of novelty. She explained that the song's themes of fatigue, healing, and hidden struggles resonated with her desire to convey a message of resilience and renewal. Despite acknowledging that the track might not be an obvious choice for a lead single, Grande likened its impact to the surprise factor and strategic positioning of her previous hit, 'Thank U, Next.'

'Yes, And?' serves as a response to public discussions surrounding Grande's personal life, including her appearance, divorce from ex-husband Dalton Gomez, and rumored relationship with Wicked costar Ethan Slater. The song's introspective lyrics and infectious energy have resonated with fans, propelling it to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart upon its release.

Grande's creative vision for 'Yes, And?' was further highlighted by a recent remix featuring legendary singer Mariah Carey, adding a new dimension to the track's already compelling narrative. As Grande prepares to unveil her seventh studio album on March 8, fans eagerly anticipate the full musical journey that 'Eternal Sunshine' promises to deliver.
