Positions is the sixth studio album by American singer Ariana Grande. It was released by Republic Records on October 30, 2020. Grande created the album with focus on her vocals, while its subject matter conveyed emotional healing.[1] Recorded during the COVID-19 pandemic, Grande worked with numerous producers on Positions, including frequent collaborator Tommy Brown, accompanied by longtime co-writers Victoria Monét and Tayla Parx.

Positions is built around themes of sexual intimacy, romantic devotion and endearment. Musically, it expands on the trap-infused R&B and pop sound of its predecessors, Sweetener (2018) and Thank U, Next (2019). Doja Cat, the Weeknd, and Ty Dolla Sign appear as guest features, alongside Megan Thee Stallion on the deluxe edition. Upon release, Positions was met with generally favorable reviews from music critics; Grande's vocal performance was often praised, though the album's lyrics and production style drew criticism. Publications ranked Positions on various year-end best albums lists of 2020.

The title track was released as the lead single, which debuted atop the Billboard Hot 100 and marked Grande's fifth number-one single in the United States, making her the only act with five number-one debuts on the chart. The song was her third Hot 100 chart-topper in 2020, following "Stuck with U" and "Rain on Me". All 14 tracks on Positions charted simultaneously on the Hot 100, with the second single, "34+35", arriving at number eight on the chart and peaking at number two, following the release of its remix with Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion. With the debut of Positions atop the Billboard 200, Grande earned her fifth number one album in the United States. It spent two consecutive weeks at number one in the country, and was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for earning over a million album-equivalent units. Elsewhere, Positions reached the top spot in Argentina, Canada, Ireland, Lithuania, New Zealand, Norway and the United Kingdom. In 2021, Positions was promoted by a series of performances of its tracks, presented by Vevo, and the release of "POV" to U.S. adult contemporary radio as the third single.

Background

On April 19, 2020, it was first reported that Ariana Grande was working on new music.[2] She also declared in May 2020 that she had recorded a song with Doja Cat earlier that year.[3][4] In the same interview, however, Grande stated that she would not release an album during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown.[5] On October 14, 2020, Grande announced on social media that her upcoming sixth studio album would be released the same month.[6][7] Three days later, she posted a slow-motion video in which she types out the word "positions" on a keyboard.[8] That same day, Grande's official website launched two countdowns counting down to October 23, 2020, and October 30, 2020.[9][10] On October 23, 2020, she confirmed via her Twitter account that the album was coming on October 30 and posted the cover art.[11] The tracklist was revealed the following day.[12] Grande released three slightly different Positions album covers on her social media. Each of them are beauty shots of the singer in black and white with varied posing. The covers were shot by Dave Meyers (who also directed the title track's music video), with creative direction by Stefan Kohli.[13]

Music and lyrics

Positions features guest vocals from (from left to right) Doja Cat, the Weeknd and Ty Dolla Sign.

Musically, Positions is an R&B[14] and pop[15] record with trap inflections. Its tracks also contain elements of hip hop, neo soul, disco, funk, microhouse, electro house, and chamber pop. Grande's vocals have been described as evoking mumble rap.[16][17][18] The opening track, "Shut Up", has been described as "a jewel box of an orchestral-pop number in which the singer tells off people too concerned with how she spends her time".[19] The second track, "34+35", has been described to have sexually suggestive lyrics.[20][21][22] The third track, "Motive", is a collaboration with Doja Cat. Grande had declared the two worked on a track together during an interview in May 2020.[23] The two would collaborate again on the remix of "34+35" alongside American rapper Megan Thee Stallion.[24] "Off the Table" is a collaboration with the Weeknd, and "tackles the idea of loving after loss head-on and with grace".[25] "Six Thirty" sees Grande "[shatter] established language norms and creates a new metaphor paradigm, comparing a person to a very specific hour of the day as represented on a clock".[26] Vulture's Rachel Handler described "My Hair" as "a witty, clever little ditty about reassuring an uneasy lover that it is, indeed, okay to touch Ariana Grande's almost frighteningly giant ponytail. It's also a classic horny bait and switch, kicking off like a sexy, swingy, '70s-esque doo-wop about fuckin'."[26] The eleventh track, "Love Language", is described as "disco-meets-new jack swing".[27] PopSugar and Idolator respectively reported that "Off the Table" sampled "2009" by Mac Miller, while "West Side" sampled "'One in a Million' by Aaliyah".[28][29] According to the liner notes, there are no officially credited samples in the album.

Release and promotion

On October 27, Grande announced that limited-edition CDs of Positions with two alternate cover artworks are to be released in conjunction with the album, and were made available for preorder on Grande's website.[30]

The album was released on October 30, 2020. The same day, limited quantity of Positions standard edition CDs, autographed by Grande, were issued DTC on the website.[31] On February 19, 2021, a deluxe edition of Positions was released, featuring five additional tracks. The deluxe version was released on CD on March 26, 2021. On April 9, 2020, the vinyl of the standard edition of the album was released, including a glow-in-the-dark variant, available exclusively at Target.[32]

In July 2021, Positions was promoted by a series of live performances of some of its tracks, presented through Vevo.[33]

Singles

The title track, "Positions", accompanied by its music video, was released on October 23, 2020, as the album's lead single.[34][35][36] "Positions" was a global success. It debuted atop the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming Grande's fifth US number-one single and extended her record of being the first artist to have five number-one debut singles on the chart.[37] Spending 17 weeks in the top 10 of the Hot 100, it tied "Thank U, Next" as Grande's longest-running top 10 single in the United States. The track also peaked at number one on the US Mainstream Top 40 airplay chart in December 2020, becoming Grande's seventh number one single and 17th top ten single on the chart. It also remained at the pole position for seven consecutive weeks, becoming Grande's longest running number one single on the pop airplay chart, surpassing "7 Rings".[38] In April 2021, "Positions" was certified double platinum by the RIAA, for shipments of over 2 million units in the United States.[39]

"34+35" was released on November 3, 2020, serving as the second single from the album.[40][41] A commercial success, it debuted at number eight on the Hot 100, marking Grande's 18th career top ten single, tying her with Beyoncé for the eighth-most top ten entries among women.[42] Following the release of the remix, "34+35" reached a peak of number two on the chart dated January 30, 2021, becoming Grande's 12th top five hit in the United States.[43] The track also peaked at number one on the US Mainstream Top 40 airplay chart in February 2021, becoming Grande's eighth number one single and second number one single from Positions. It replaced the title track which dominated the chart for seven consecutive weeks, making Grande the first artist to replace herself at number one with two solo songs.[44] It remained at the pole position for three consecutive weeks.[45] The track also peaked at number one on the U.S Rhythmic Top 40 airplay chart, becoming Grande's third number one single.[46] In April 2021, "34+35" was certified double platinum by the RIAA, for moving over 2 million units in the United States.[47] A remix of "34+35", featuring American rappers Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion, was released on January 15, 2021.

"POV" was sent to American adult contemporary radio stations on April 19, 2021, as the album's third single.[48] Following the release of the album, "POV" debuted at number 40 on the Billboard Hot 100, later peaking at number 27.[42] "POV" entered the top ten of the US Mainstream Top 40 airplay chart at number ten on the issue dated May 15, 2021. It became the third consecutive top ten hit from Positions and Grande's 19th top ten single. The same week, Grande yielded three songs in the top ten of pop airplay chart; the title track, "34+35" and "POV", making her the first artist to post three concurrent top ten hits in the survey's history.[49][50]

Positions received generally favorable reviews from music critics, most of whom agreed that Grande "does not break any new ground" with it.[59] At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album has an average score of 72 based on 24 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[60]

Louise Bruton of The Irish Times labeled Positions a "big orgy of breathless R&B songs" that solidify Grande as one of pop music's leading voices, despite the scarcity of "bangers".[14] Mary Siroky of Consequence of Sound detailed the album as "showy", "wildly theatrical", filled with romance and flirtation, establishing a blend of Dangerous Woman (2016), Sweetener (2018) and Thank U, Next (2019), while dismissing the guest appearances as its weakest songs.[15] Pitchfork's Dani Blum wrote that Grande is "both in love and scared of it" in Positions, as she tries to heal herself in "new giddy romance"; Blum further noticed that the album does not broaden her sound "the way her past few albums have".[57] Brenton Blanchet of Clash gave plaudits for its "beautifully layered" orchestrations and sweet harmonies, but felt that Grande stays inside a comfort zone, in a genre "she's all too familiar with".[54] Vulture's Craig Jenkins appreciated the "effortless" vocals, and pinpointed how the album is "risqué and unsubtle" in nature, but underlined its safe formula and presence of filler tracks.[61] Hannah Mylrea of NME affirmed that Positions is "jaw-droppingly good fun", however, observed that the washy melodies result in indistinct songs, deficit of Grande's "trademark sparkle".[56]

Chris DeVille of Stereogum lauded the "impeccable" vocals, but downplayed the "least stimulating" production. He dubbed Positions as a solid Grande album, but deemed it a premature "disappointment" in comparison to Sweetener and Thank U, Next.[62] The Telegraph's Kate Solomon described it as "sultry sexjams and thinly veiled euphemisms" with X-rated lyrics, softened by Disneyfied strings, but despite the singer shining new confidence, Positions "doesn't quite hit the spot".[55] Carl Wilson of Slate classified the album as Grande's "most shamelessly sexed-up set" and "back-to-basics-plus album" with relaxed and familiar music, that turns "bedroom calisthenics" and "mundane" romance into "bubbly pop fodder", yet avowed that it feels trivial amidst her other projects.[63] The Independent writer Adam White highlighted the album's push-and-pull dynamic, but felt the singer sticks to her comfort zone, and noted that Positions has "Spotify syndrome"—short songs to aid playlisting.[18]

David Smyth of Evening Standard praised Grande's voice as "a thing of great beauty", but remarked that she "isn't firing as hard as she was when she released her last two albums".[64] Alexis Petridis of The Guardian concluded that the album proceeds at a tiring pace, causing the individual tracks blur into "one long slow-motion shot", without a climax.[17] Naming Positions a misstep in Grande's career, The Fader's Shaad D'Souza denounced its conversational style of vocals, "low-effort" lyrics and trend-chasing production. He thought the songs lacked distinction and punch, dissolving into a "swamp of icy drum hits and aimless melisma".[65] Calling it a product of pandemic fatigue, Alexa Camp of Slant Magazine wrote that Positions leans on "the same midtempo trap-pop" that were on Grande's previous albums, and criticized the lyricism for its "empty" pillow talk and repetitive hooks.[16] Bobby Olivier of Spin found the album "sultry yet forgettable", with several "uninspired" or "unmemorable" tracks.[66]

Commercial performance

United States

Positions debuted at number-one on the US Billboard 200 chart, with 174,000 album-equivalent units, which included 173.54 million on-demand streams and 42,000 album sales, in its first week. This became Grande's fifth US number one debut and the fourth album by a female artist to reach number one in 2020. At the time of its release, Positions achieved the highest one-week total for an album since bundles and concert ticket offers stopped factoring into chart and sales rankings (October 9, 2020). Positions marked Grande's third number-one album in under two years and three months, which was the fastest accumulation of three number one albums by a woman at that time.[100] It became Grande's fifth chart-topper on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart.[101]

All 14 tracks of Positions charted simultaneously within the top 75 of the US Billboard Hot 100, issue dated November 14, 2020, becoming Grande's second consecutive album to do so, following Thank U, Next (12 songs). Grande's career Hot 100 count expanded to 66 entries, the fourth-most among women.[42] In its second week, the album remained at number one on the chart, with a furthered 83,000 units and 99.5 million on-demand streams. It was her second consecutive album to spend its first two weeks at number one, following Thank U, Next.[102] In its third week, the album slipped to number four on the chart, moving over 75,000 units.[103]

Following the release of the deluxe version, Positions ascended to the second spot of the Billboard 200 on the chart dated March 6, 2021, selling 49,000 units (up 66%) in its 17th week.[104] After its vinyl and cassette release, Positions returned to number six on the chart dated April 24, 2021, selling 54,000 units (up 138%) in its 24th week.[105] The album also peaked atop the Billboard Vinyl Albums Chart in the week ending April 15, 2021, becoming Grande's first chart-topper there.[106] Having sold around 32,000 vinyl LPs that week, it held the former record for the largest vinyl sales week by a female artist since MRC Data began tracking sales in 1991.[107] On April 6, 2021, Positions was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for moving a million units in the US.[108]

As of the July 2021 MRC Data report, Positions was the tenth most consumed album of 2021 thus far, having earned 707,000 units in the year's first six months.[109]

Other territories

In the United Kingdom, Positions debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart, becoming her fourth number one album. For the second time, Grande achieved a chart double with the title track at number one as well. Grande achieved this in 2019, when her album Thank U, Next and single "Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" topped the album and singles chart simultaneously. She is the fourth artist, and first female artist, to achieve a chart double in 2020, following Drake, Eminem, and Stormzy, and the second female to achieve this feat twice since Rihanna in 2011.[110] In April 2021, Positions also topped the UK's Official Vinyl Albums Chart.[111]

In Canada, Positions debuted at the top spot of Billboard Canadian Albums chart, yielding Grande her fourth Canadian number-one album and third consecutive number-one album.[112] It remained at number one for two consecutive weeks.[113] All 14 tracks of Positions charted on the Canadian Hot 100 simultaneously—Grande's third album to do so, after Sweetener and Thank U, Next. The title track became Grande's fifth Canadian number-one hit and "34+35" debuted at number eight and later peaked at number five, becoming Grande's 18th top ten hit in the country.[114]

In Ireland, Positions debuted atop the Irish Albums Chart, becoming Grande's fourth consecutive number one album in the country. It was the most downloaded and most streamed album of the week. Joining Madonna, Beyoncé and Taylor Swift, Grande became the fourth female soloist to claim at least four number-one albums on the Irish Charts.[115]

Aided by Positions, Grande placed at number eight on the list of best-selling artists of the world in 2020 by International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, ranking third amongst women.[116]

Leben

Ariana Grande wurde 1993 als Tochter von Nachkommen italienischer Einwanderer in Boca Raton im US-Bundesstaat Florida geboren, wo sie auch aufwuchs. Die Vorfahren ihrer Eltern stammen aus Sizilien und den Abruzzen.[4] Sie hat einen 1983 geborenen Halbbruder, der Schauspieler ist. Grande hat Gesang studiert und Eric Vetro als Vocalcoach engagiert.[5]

Als Kind begann sie in Boca Raton im Former Little Palm Theatre for Young People zu schauspielern. Einige Jahre später trat sie in Fort Lauderdale im Children’s Theatre (FLCT) auf. Wegen ihrer Schauspielaktivitäten brach sie die Schule ab, blieb aber weiterhin in der Highschool eingeschrieben und arbeitete mit einem Privatlehrer den Unterrichtsstoff nach.[6]

Zwischen Oktober 2014 und April 2015 war sie mit dem Rapper Big Sean liiert.[7] Im September 2016 bestätigte sie ihre Beziehung zu dem Rapper Mac Miller, mit dem sie bereits 2013 für ihre Debütsingle The Way zusammengearbeitet hatte.[8] Im Mai 2018 trennte sich das Paar.[9] Im Juni 2018 verlobte sie sich mit dem amerikanischen Komiker Pete Davidson.[10] Im Oktober 2018 trennte sich das Paar.[11] Im Mai 2020 machte sie ihre Beziehung mit dem Immobilienmakler Dalton Gomez in dem Musikvideo „Stuck with u“ (feat. Justin Bieber) öffentlich. Die beiden verlobten sich im Dezember 2020.[12] Am 16. Mai 2021 heiratete sie ihren Verlobten im engen Familienkreis.[13]

Engagement für Tierrechte und Umwelt

Grande lebt seit 2013 vegan.[14] Darüber hinaus unterstützt sie PETA und zeigte sich mit einem Shirt dieser Tierrechts-Organisation auf dem Weg zum Aufnahmestudio.[15] 2013 rief sie dazu auf, Sea World zu meiden, nachdem sie den Film Blackfish gesehen hatte.[16] 2014 besuchte sie einen Gnadenhof und kümmerte sich dort um gerettete Tierbabys.[17]

In dem 2019 erschienenen Charity-Song Earth, dessen Gewinne an verschiedene Umweltorganisationen gehen, lieh sie dem Zebra ihre Stimme.[18][19] 2019 versuchte sie, gemeinsam mit anderen Stars, die öffentliche Aufmerksamkeit auf die Amazonas-Brände zu lenken.[20] 2020 eröffnet sie ein Tierheim in Los Angeles.[21][22]

Schauspielkarriere

Grande beim Tribeca Film Festival 2010

2008 spielte Grande am Broadway im Musical 13 die Rolle der Charlotte, für die sie den National Youth Theatre Association Award erhielt.[23] Am Broadway lernte sie die Schauspielerin Elizabeth Gillies kennen, die später ebenfalls eine Hauptrolle bei Victorious übernahm. Ferner spielte Grande die Rolle der Miriam in der ersten Lesung für das Musical Cuba Libre von Desmond Child.

2009 nahm sie an einem Casting für die Rolle der Cat Valentine in der Nickelodeon-Serie Victorious teil und färbte sich dafür ihre Haare rot; sie bekam die Rolle. Wie die anderen Hauptdarsteller von Victorious spielte sie 2011 in dem Film iCarly: Party mit Victorious mit, einem Crossover zwischen Victorious und iCarly. Beide Serien wurden von Dan Schneider produziert. Sie trat in den Musikvideos Freak the Freak Out, Beggin’ on Your Knees, All I Want Is Everything und Make it in America von Victoria Justice auf. 2009 und 2010 trat sie im Birdland Jazz Club in New York City zusammen mit Miranda Sings auf. 2011 hat Grande die Prinzessin Diaspro in der Nickelodeon-Animations-Fernsehserie Winx Club synchronisiert[24].

2012 bestellte Nickelodeon einen Pilotfilm für einen Ableger der Serien Victorious und iCarly mit dem Titel Sam & Cat, der abermals von Schneider produziert wurde. Grande spielte die Victorious-Rolle der Cat Valentine neben Jennette McCurdy, die die iCarly-Rolle Sam Puckett erneut aufnahm.[27] Da es hinter den Kulissen zu Unstimmigkeiten zwischen den beiden Hauptdarstellerinnen kam, wurde die Serie im Juli 2014 nach der ersten Staffel beendet.[28] 2015 nahm sie ihre Schauspielkarriere für kurze Zeit wieder auf, als sie in der Fox-Serie Scream Queens für vier Folgen die Figur Chanel #2 verkörperte.

Ihr zweites Studioalbum mit dem Titel My Everything wurde im August 2014 veröffentlicht. Die erste Single Problem mit Iggy Azalea hatte sie im April 2014 zum ersten Mal live bei den Radio Disney Music Awards 2014 präsentiert. Sie stieg auf Platz 2 der Billboard Hot 100 Charts und erreichte Platz 1 der britischen Singlecharts. Insgesamt verkaufte sich die Single in den USA über vier Millionen Mal, wodurch Grande 4-fach mit Platin ausgezeichnet wurde.[36] In Deutschland erreichte Problem Goldstatus.[37] Im Juli 2014 wurde die Single Bang Bang veröffentlicht, die in Zusammenarbeit mit Jessie J und Nicki Minaj entstand. Der Song erreichte in den USA Platz 3; Grande war zu diesem Zeitpunkt mit drei Singles in den Top 10 der Billboard Hot 100 vertreten. Das Stück war ihr zweiter Nummer-eins-Hit in den britischen Singlecharts.

2014 gewann Grande bei den MTV Europe Music Awards den Preis für den besten Song für das Lied Problem und den Preis für den besten weiblichen Künstler.[38][39] Im November 2014 erhielt Grande in der Kategorie Newcomer den Bambi des Verlags Hubert Burda Media.

Der für Grande ungewohnte Sound stieß auf gemischte Kritik.[42] Im Juli 2018 erschien die zweite Single God Is a Woman, die auf Position 11 der Billboard Hot 100 einstieg. Das von Kritikern gelobte Musikvideo zum Song enthält feministische Symbolik und feiert die Weiblichkeit als 'göttlich'.[43] Allerdings gab es auch kontroverse Diskussionen; einige Nutzer empfanden das Video als blasphemisch.[44] Von Künstlern wie Madonna wurde Grandes Video als „feministische Hymne“ gefeiert.[45]

Grandes viertes Studioalbum, Sweetener, wurde im August 2018 veröffentlicht. Zur Hälfte von dem amerikanischen Produzenten Pharrell Williams produziert, ist das Album geprägt von Synth-, Funk- und Popsounds neben den von Grande bekannten Dance-Rhythmen.[46] Besonders stechen die sehr persönlichen Texte des Albums hervor. Grande singt über ihre seelische Gesundheit und den Umgang mit ihrer Angststörung, die sich nach dem Terroranschlag in Manchester verstärkt hatte. Sweetener debütierte auf Platz 1 der Billboard-Albumcharts und erreichte in einem Monat eine Milliarde Streams auf Spotify, was sie zur jüngsten Künstlerin mit diesem Erfolg machte.[47] Trotz Sweeteners experimentellem Sound ist es bis heute das am schnellsten verkaufte Album ihrer Diskografie.[48]

Im März 2019 begann in Albany die Sweetener World Tour, die im Oktober in Zürich endende.[49][50] Diese Tour war eine Kombination ihrer beiden Alben Sweetener und Thank U, Next. Aufgrund des Terroranschlags in Manchester wurden die Sicherheitsvorkehrungen verschärft, die Konzertbesucher dürfen ihre Sachen nur in Plastikttaschen mitnehmen.[51]

Im November 2018 veröffentlichte sie die Leadsingle ihres kommenden gleichnamigen Albums Thank U, Next. Das zugehörige Musikvideo schaffte es, den Rekord für das meistgesehene YouTube-Video binnen der ersten 24 Stunden zu brechen.[52] In diesem sind außerdem viele prominente Gäste zu sehen, wie zum Beispiel Jennifer Coolidge, Kris Jenner, Liz Gillies und Troye Sivan. Zudem schaffte es das Stück auf Platz 1 der Billboard Hot 100 und brach zahlreiche Rekorde auf Streaming-Plattformen. Im Dezember desselben Jahres veröffentlichte sie die Promosingle Imagine. Im Januar 2019 wurde die zweite Auskopplung 7 Rings veröffentlicht, die ebenfalls Platz 1 der Billboard Hot 100 belegte. Zudem ist dies ihr erster Song, in dem sie rapt.[53]

Im Februar 2019 erschien ihr fünftes Studioalbum Thank U, Next und die Single Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored., im Musikvideo ist Charles Melton zu sehen. Grande bezieht sich in den Songs des Albums überwiegend auf frühere Beziehungen, jedoch auch auf die Liebe zu sich selbst und die Freundschaft. Inhaltlich sticht besonders der Song Ghostin heraus, der von der schwierigen Beziehung mit Pete Davidson nach Mac Millers Tod handelt.[54] Grande singt im Refrain „Ich weiß, dass es dein Herz bricht, wenn ich wieder seinetwegen weine“.[55] Das Album debütierte auf Platz 1 der Billboard-Albumcharts. Seit den Beatles im Jahr 1964 war Grande die erste Sängerin, die es schaffte, die ersten drei Plätze der Billboard Hot 100 zu belegen.[56]

Im September 2019 veröffentlichte Grande zusammen mit Miley Cyrus und Lana Del Rey die Single Don’t Call Me Angel.[57] Hierbei handelt es sich um den offiziellen Titelsong von Charlie’s Angels.[58]

2020: Sechstes Studioalbum Positions

Bei der Verleihung der Grammy Awards 2020 wurde Grande fünfmal nominiert, konnte jedoch in keiner Kategorie gewinnen.[59] Im Mai erschien zusammen mit Justin Bieber die Single Stuck with U, die in den USA auf Platz eins der Single-Charts einstieg.[60] Die Einnahmen der Single wurden an die First Responders Children’s Foundation gespendet, um Betroffene der COVID-19-Pandemie zu unterstützen.[61] Stuck with U wurde bei den MTV Video Music Awards in der 2020 neu eingeführten Kategorie Best Music Video from Home ausgezeichnet.[62]

Im Mai folgte zusammen mit Lady Gaga die zweite Singleauskopplung Rain on Me von Gagas sechstem Studioalbum Chromatica. Der Song konnte ebenfalls auf Platz eins der Billboard Hot 100 und darüber hinaus ebenfalls auf Platz eins in den britischen Single-Charts einsteigen.[63] Bei den MTV Video Music Awards erhielt das Musikvideo von Rain on Me drei Auszeichnungen.[62] Außerdem wurde der Song bei den Grammy Awards 2021 als Beste Popdarbietung eines Duos/einer Gruppe ausgezeichnet.[64]

Im Oktober 2020 erschien Grandes sechstes Studioalbum Positions und die erste Singleauskopplung Positions.[65] Die Single debütierte ebenfalls auf Platz eins der US-amerikanischen Single-Charts, womit Grande am häufigsten direkt auf Platz eins der Billboard Hot 100 einsteigen konnte.[66] Die zweite Singleauskopplung 34+35 erschien ebenfalls im Oktober und konnte mehrere internationale Top-Ten-Platzierungen in den Single-Charts erreichen.
