Ariana Grande’s Move into the White House
Ariana Grande gave her fans a sneak peak of her upcoming album Positions through the release of her lead single and title track “Positions.” The song dropped alongside a music video with an empowering message for women, and it was flirtatious as well. It did this through political elements as she was seen walking around the White House as president, followed by her mainly female and diverse cabinet. Junior Kristen Brown explained her admiration for Ariana Grande’s empowerment of women: “I’ve always loved Ariana Grande since I was little for her acting and songs, but as I got older I finally began to see her entire essence. She’s someone who’s motivated, hard-working, and constantly finding ways to empower one another. She’s a true role model.” The album is meant to drop four days before elections, so will the entirety of the album be similar to “Positions” in its political and empowering ways?
