Ariana Grande will not only debut a new song on “Saturday Night Live,” she will also be pulling double duty as both show host and performer.
During the March 12 episode, Grande will debut music from her highly anticipated third album, “Dangerous Woman.”
The previous title of the album was “Moonlight.”
Grande confirmed the new album title in an audio recording that the singer and songwriter posted to her new website, DangerousWoman.com, on Thursday.
“I’m so excited to finally have a site where I can give you guys exclusive content and keep you guys posted on album-related things,” she said on the site under the heading of Tea.
She also confirmed her appearance on “Saturday Night Live.”
“I am having a minor heart attack, and by minor, I mean a major one,” she gushed. “I think what’s even more exciting is that I’m going to be performing ‘Dangerous Woman,’ which is the title track of my new album, and ‘Be Alright.’ So, I’m getting ready. I’m in rehearsals now and I can’t wait for you guys to hear and see everything.”
Ariana Grande explained to Entertainment Tonight why this particular album was so important to her career transition.
“I feel like [‘Focus’ is] the perfect transition record from the last album to the new album, because it sounds like ‘Problem 2.0,” she said. “It sounds like the goodbye to the last album and hello to the new album.”
“It feels like the next version of me,” she confessed. “I always listen to my fans’ feedback and try to incorporate as much of it as I can while also remaining as true to my artistry as I possibly can.”
Ariana Grade will be the host and musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” on March 12.
