Ariana Grande—one of this generation's most popular singers with her breathtaking vocal chops—is coming back to Manila this year for the Dangerous Woman World Tour, and we can’t wait to see our hitmaker perform again in the flesh!
While everyone lamented the tragedy that is the Manchester Arena bombing last May 22, this didn’t stop Ari and her Arianators to move forward and pay homage to the victims. The big-hearted pop star cancelled a few shows for One Love Manchester, a benefit concert that gathered some of the biggest names in the music industry, after which the Dangerous Woman Tour resumed.
There's still one month to go before her Manila stop, but we just can’t help starting the countdown as early as now! As die-hard Arianators, here are the songs we really can't wait to sing along to!
1. "Honeymoon Avenue" (2013)
How can we forget the first track from Yours Truly? Ariana, herself, spilled that this is one of her favorites out of everything she has ever recorded. Wouldn’t it be a great fangirl moment to witness our idol sing this from her heart live? Imagine hearing it with the cellos and violins. Ah! What a feeling!
2. "The Way" (2013)
Arianator or not, who wouldn’t want to hear this live? The first single off of Ari’s debut album, this song makes us realize that two friends can become lovers unexpectedly. This was recorded in 2013 with her just-friends-turned-sweetheart Mac Miller. So it seems like this song was meant to happen IRL!
3. "One Last Time" (2014)
This is the fan-favorite track from Ariana’s sophomore album, which everyone wouldn’t mind hearing live for sure! An EDM track with heartfelt lyrics—we swear, we'd be crying while dancing! This track was re-released before One Love Manchester, so this song will surely mean more to many fans if it makes it way to the Dangerous Woman set list.
4. "Best Mistake" (2014)
Do you agree that this song was like a foreshadowing of the Ariana-Big Sean breakup? The lyrics talk about holding on to a relationship even though everything seems hard, but Ari and Big Sean did the exact opposite. We wonder: how would she feel while singing this in front of her Arianators? Would she cry? We don’t know! We just have to wait and see.
5. "Everyday" (2016)
This may be an underrated single, but definitely belongs to a real Arianator’s list of favorites. This song just gets us pumped up whenever we hear this. How about hearing it live? How high could we get? With the thought of the cute music video, you know what we mean!
6. "Into You" (2016)
A track that comes with our favorite music video - how could this not be included in this list? We can't stop ourselves from dreaming how beautiful the set would be live. Would it be full of pink and purple colors just like the music video? We couldn’t wait to find out!
BONUS: "Dangerous Woman" (2016)
We couldn’t stop ourselves from adding this one! This is Ari’s lead single from her latest album—and there's no way we're missing out on hearing "Dangerous Woman" from the Dangerous Woman album in the Dangerous Woman Tour.
We’re so hyped to see this gorgeous and sweet ponytail queen in front of us, and we’re sure Ari feels the same! Do you have your tickets yet? For more details, log on to MMI Live today!
