Exploring the songs on Ariana Grande's Sweetener World Tour

Princess of Pop Ariana Grande is in the midst of her highly anticipated Sweetener World Tour in support of her recent back-to-back albums, sweetener and thank u, next that she dropped earlier this year.
The tour kicked off March 18th in Albany and hits a slew of North American cities before wrapping up back in New York on June 18th.
Ari's 25-song setlist spans through 5 studio albums, which means we get healthy doses of empowerment, love and of course, lots of heartbreak. She's been starting her shows with her latest hits "Raindrops (an angel cried)" and the ever anthemic and powerful "God is a Woman" before digging into older fan-favorites like "Side to Side," "Dangerous Woman" and "One Last Time."
Here's the setlist from one of her recent shows:

"Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored"
This song was the third single from Grande's thank u, next. In the UK, it debuted at No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart, dethroning her other single, "7 Rings" and making Grande the first female artist to replace herself at No. 1.
In the US, it peaked at No. 2, sandwiched between her No. 1 "7 Rings" and her No. 3 "Thank U, Next." Grande became the first to monopolize the top three chart spots since The Beatles in 1964. ICONIC.

"7 Rings"
Ari proves that she can be trap, too, in this spunky play on The Sound of Music's "Favorite Things."
In the song, Grande touts her rapping skills, rapping nearly every verse. She described the song as a "friendship anthem" that "evolves" from previous single, "Thank U, Next." Though Rodgers & Hammerstein was granted 90 percent of the song's royalties due to the song's similarity's to "Favorite Things," it's still one of the certified bops that propelled Ariana to where she is now.
"Love Me Harder/Breathin"
This track from 2014's My Everything, "Love Me Harder," originally featured The Weeknd and is one of Ariana's earliest works. She pairs it with sweetener standout, "Breathin," for a little mid-show medley.
"No Tears Left to Cry"
We turnin' it up! "No Tears Left to Cry" is one of Grande's most poignant and empowering works. After the Manchester bombing attack at one of her shows during the Dangerous Woman Tour, Grande was reluctant to record new music.
"I want it to be positive and talk about positivity and love," she said, when asked about recording again. " I don't have any tears left to cry."
The song received universal acclaim upon its 2018 release and is one of her most career-defining songs to date.
