This Mysterious Album Of Unreleased Ariana Grande Tracks That Has Appeared On Spotify Is Full Of Bops

Don’t know how, don’t know why, don’t know who, but what I do know is these tracks are fire.

Ariana Grande is the woman of the moment between her break up drama, her new track/ode to her exes, ‘thank u, next’, and now what appears to be a collection of unreleased Ari songs has been found just chilling on Spotify.

We have been blessed by the demo gods.

The Spotify album is called “Nobody Does It Better” and it’s listed under the artist name Zandhr. Apparently they appeared on the streaming service on November 1 and while there’s no label attached, it appears to be a legitimate collection of Ariana tracks.

Some of the songs sound like a demo quality, but they all link back to Ariana. So if the fact that they really sound like her isn’t enough, there this.

The title track ‘Nobody Does It Better’ was originally linked to her debut album. ‘In Your Hands’, was a track that Ariana and Diplo were making back in 2016 and leaked in October this year. ‘Fiesta’ is a song called ‘Esta Noche’ by BIA that features Ariana on the chorus. ‘Cadillac’ and ‘Too Close’ were both released exclusively on some album editions in 2014.

‘Better Days’ is a song by Victoria Monét featuring Ariana that was released onto Soundcloud in 2016. ‘Champagne’ is known under the name ‘Pink Champagne’, and it’s a song that was intended for her debut album but released instead as a thank you to fans when she reached 10 million Twitter followers in 2013.

‘Too Long’ appears to be the Chris Brown song Ariana featured on, ‘Don’t Be Gone Too Long’, except without Chris Brown. So, Better.

‘Be Alright’ is just a song off Dangerous Woman.

Finally, ‘Ridiculous’ is a song that was actually written by Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus back in 2013 and was intended for her debut album which leaked in 2017.

So most of the songs have made their way onto the internet at one time or another but whoever has brought them together for easy listening, we are grateful.

The Spice Girls Reunion Tour Is Going Ahead Without Posh So If You Need Me I’ll Be Watching Spice World And Crying

You can’t bring the 90’s back, no matter how hard you try.

The will-they-or-won’t-they rollercoaster of the Spice Girls reunion has been quite the ride for a long while, but now it’s officially happening.

Well, almost. There will be Scary Spice, Ginger Spice, Baby Spice, and Sporty Spice. But no Posh Spice.

Unfortunately, Victoria Beckham will be sitting this one out.

The girls are reuniting for a UK tour 23 years after they first came onto the scene and spiced up our lives, but without all five of them on stage it does feel a little bittersweet,

They’ve performed as a four-piece before – between 1998 and their split in 2000 – when Geri left the band, but since then they’ve blessed us with a full reunion for the 10 year mark back in 2007 and at their iconic closing ceremony performance at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The desire to relive the Spice Girls’ glory days is understandable, because they are incredible and their music and ‘Girl Power’ message was so significant to so many of our lives.

And while there’s clearly no bad blood between the girls and Victoria Beckham, and we don’t blame Victoria for her choice, seeing them all together without her is a bit of sad reminder of the fact that you can’t really recreate the magic that has been and gone.

The Spice Girls upcoming reunion tour will likely be an incredible show, and we absolutely wish they would come to Australia.

But alas, The Spice Girls are not wholly The Spice Girls without all five band members adding their unique spice to the group. And alas, as is seemingly the Spice Girls tradition, an Australian performance does not seem to be on the agenda or even their radar.

So if you really want to relive the magic of The Spice Girls, the best way to do it is honestly to watch the glorious time capsule of 90’s magic that is, Spice World.

Any and all Spice Girls nostalgic cravings can be satiated by the Spice World movie, I promise.

Pete Davidson’s Real Talk About His Break Up With Ariana Grande Is The Official Closure This Whole Mess Needs

No bad blood here.

The Pete Davidson/Ariana Grande relationship-turned-engagement-turned-break-up drama seems to have finally come to a peaceful end.

We went from Davidson breaking the ice with rather sad self-deprecating jokes about the break up, to a more insensitive joke that verged on the point of milking it and prompted a beautifully messy reaction from Ariana Grande, AKA, dragging him on Twitter.

But on Sunday Ariana Grande released a new track ‘Thank u, next’, that explicitly references her past relationships, including Pete, with the message that she’s grateful for all her ex’s. Wholesome and peaceful stuff from an absolute Queen.

And now Pete Davidson has actually given a mature response about the break up while on SNL. It’s a sensitive statement without a punchline, which is rare for the show, and it feels like the closure this whole mess needed.

“The last thing I will say is I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is, it’s nobody’s business, and sometimes things just don’t work out. And that’s okay,” Davidson said.

“She’s a wonderful, strong person, and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world.”

It sounds like the situation is being handled now without bad blood or bitterness, and Pete Davidson even signed off with the quip that, “I’m still a great song, though.”

Very true.
