About Dangerous Woman

Dangerous Woman is the third studio album by American singer Ariana Grande, released by Republic Records on May 20, 2016. The album features guest appearances from Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Macy Gray and Future. Dangerous Woman is primarily a pop and R&B album, with influences of dance-pop, disco, house, trap, and reggae genres. Grande, Max Martin, and Savan Kotecha were the album's executive producers. The album was originally called Moonlight after the opening track on the album, with the song "Focus" being the intended lead single. However, the album's name was later changed to Dangerous Woman, with "Focus" being removed from the album's standard track listing, though it remains as a bonus track on the Japanese edition of the album. Dangerous Woman debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200, selling 175,000 album-equivalent units in its first week. It was Grande's first album to not hit number-one in the country. However, it became her first number one album in the UK. It also hit number-one in Australia, Brazil, Italy, Ireland, New Zealand, Spain and Taiwan, while also entering the top ten in almost every territory it charted in. On October 28, 2016, Dangerous Woman was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). As of 2017, the album has sold 900,000 copies worldwide according to the IFPI. Prior to Dangerous Woman's release, two promotional singles were released, "Be Alright" and "Let Me Love You" (featuring Lil Wayne). Both promotional singles appeared on the Hot 100 in the US. "Focus" reached the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 7. Dangerous Woman's official lead single, "Dangerous Woman", was released on March 11, 2016, peaked at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100. The next two singles "Into You" and "Side to Side" peaked at numbers 13 and 4, respectively, on the Hot 100.
