Ariana Grande had spent most of 2019 on tour celebrating the success of her fourth studio album, Sweetener. The singer has announced that she is releasing a movie from her tour last year on Netflix.
Her movie, Excuse Me, I Love You will be streaming on the network on December 21. She teased the movie with a black-and-white picture on her social media handle. The Positions singer captioned the post as she wrote that December 21 is the day when it will be a year after she closed her Sweetener World Tour.
She shared that now it is coming home to all of us. Ariana wrote, “@netflix @netflixfilm releasing this as a love letter to u all, in celebration of all that we’ve shared over the past few years.” The artist further added that she knows it only covers some of one tour out of the other hundreds of shows and moments.
However, she notes that she wanted to thank everyone for showing her more in this lifetime than she ever dreamed of. The singer’s Sweetener world tour was highly-popular as it consisted of 97 shows with 1.3 million fans in attendance.
She shared, “Making music and doing all of this has been all I’ve known or fully given myself to consistently for a very long time now. Although my heart is looking forward to a change of pace, I wanted to express again just how eternally thankful I am.”
Ariana’s Gift For Her Fans
This would mark the first film venture for the singer in two years. She released her Dangerous Woman Diaries on YouTube. The singer was seen splayed in a backbend on stage in one image. The caption-less post also had another image where she was seen from behind. Netflix commented on the post from its social media handle as it read, “Excuse me, I love you.”
This created quite a frenzy among her fans as they began wondering what could the hint mean. They knew it can be the Sweetener tour coming to them on Netflix as a concert documentary or series. However, the singer is not the only one who has used Netflix to publicize their tour or album. Taylor Swift, Shawn Mendes are some other artists who have released documentaries on Netflix.
Ariana’s Sweetener tour was in support of two of her albums, Sweetener and Thank U, Next, her fourth and fifth studio albums. The tour garnered over $146.4 million as they started off back in March of 2019 and concluded the tour in December last year. However, since then Ariana has served us with her sixth album, Positions.
Fans do not expect her to go on tour because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Ariana’s latest album does not only bless us with her whistle notes and lyrics but it also features collaborations with Ty Dolla $ign, The Weeknd. Meanwhile, Doja Cat lends her voice for a few verses in another song. Ty Dolla $ign collaborates on the song, Safety Net while The Weeknd sings along in Off The Table.
Ariana Releases Positions
The singer revealed that the two collaborations are her favorite songs of the album. Fans speculate that Positions might be a love letter to her current beau, Dalton Gomez. The album includes 14 tracks as she seems to take her listeners through the journey of their relationship.
Ariana also gives us a little listen to her sex life as she takes her audience through some of her favorite moves. However, fans speculate that not all of it is about her present and future. The album has a reference to her ex-fiance, Pete Davidson. The song will take you back to their highly-public engagement.
Not only that, but the album also honors her late ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller in her collaboration with The Weeknd. The song is about her wonderment of love being completely off the table after the rapper’s death from a drug overdose. In a 2019 Vogue interview, the singer had opened up about her relationship with Mac.
Positions Shading Pete?
She said, “By no means was what we had perfect, but, like, f–k. He was the best person ever, and he didn’t deserve the demons he had.” The singer described herself as the glue, as she found herself becoming less and less “sticky” through time. She explained, “The pieces just started to float away.”
Ariana’s sixth studio album, Positions, comes after her 2019 album, Thank U, Next which was at the top of the charts. It was on No, 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and earned an Album of the Year nomination at the Grammy Awards. The singer had broken the internet and seems to be on the verge of breaking the internet yet again.
Ariana Grande’s fans think she might have shaded ex-fiance, Pete Davidson. The singer recently dropped her new song, Positions which had her as the president.
Although Arianators think that the loved up, sweet lyrics are targeted towards her current boyfriend, Dalton Gomez, fans also think she shaded ex, Pete. In the song, the lyrics go: “Heaven sent you to me. I’m just hoping I don’t repeat history.”
The singer, however, seemed to have broken down the word ‘repeat’ as individual syllables. This made it sound like she is singing ‘re’ and ‘peat’. Fans were quick to notice as they took this reference to Pete and their romance.
A fan tweeted, “WAIT DID YALL CATCH THAT?? I’m just hoping I don’t re-PETE history maybe… I’m leaping.” Another fan tweeted, Ariana really said I’m just hoping I don’t re(Pete) history.” Many fans took note of the same and tweeted.
