Sorry for the delay to this! I've been jet setting. cool.gif laugh.gif

In Round 2, we have a top 3, but it seems like there is a definite clear top 2 so far.

...and now for Round 3, it's my favorite album of hers and her latest "Dangerous Woman", personally there are so many stand out tracks here, that I would have just released pretty much the whole album, but as we know, labels don't generally like to do that.

Since Knew Better/Forever Boy is one track, I've decided to include the original, plus part 2/single version's due do the fact some artists have released 2 tracks in one before or have also made single versions of just one of them. She did in fact make a Knew Better Part 2 as well.



My picks:

Moonlight - This one would have been risky, but I can't help but feel it COULD have been her "Thinking Out Loud" - Ed Sheeran moment. I personally think it's beautiful and would have loved a cute music video.

Be Alright - I like to pretend her tour background video is part of the official music video. Always loved this, super strong track and performed well as a promo single. I was secretly hoping she would release this as the Manchester Charity Single, due to the message and her performance, but of course One Last Time is beautiful and went on to be an even bigger smash that it deserved, so I'm not mad.

Greedy - I think my boyfriend is sick of this song and the fact that every 2 seconds I say I can't believe she didn't release this. I even made claims of disowning her if she didn't, but I can't stick to that promise. I can see why the label went for Everyday, attempting to cash in on that more urban sound after Side To Side, but this would have definitely done better and even if it didn't, we would have got a video. A lot of people think it should have been the lead instead of Focus (was intended to be) and ofcourse I agree.

Bad Decisions - Always liked this, at first I didn't find it amazing, but I've grown to love it and just tend to think it could have been a single that performed well, maybe would have released it as a bridge between Side to Side and Greedy... or something.

Touch It - A very strong, beautiful, radio friendly track. Will definitely never understand why it was made a Bonus Track, but then it kind of fits so well where it is on the tracklisting when you listen to the album in full.

I'm never ever going to get over them releasing 'Everyday' over 'Greedy'. It's one of those things, no matter how hard I try I genuinely can't even understand the mentality of it.

So yeah, 'Greedy' 4th, 'Be Alright' could have made a nice 5th single. If it was a super successful era, I'd probably go with 'Thinking 'Bout You' to round off the era after that. That'd be nice.

I totally agree with you Aly. 'Greedy' absolutely should have been single number 4. It is sonically similar to 'Into You' but I think it would've been fine following 'Side To Side'. I quite liked 'Everyday' on first listen of the album but it got old really quickly. 'Greedy' on the other hand has held up sooo well in my affections. That iconic keychange needed to be on the radio

I never got the hype with Greedy at all. With Ariana faves, I always seem to think the really popular ones are just a bit average to be honest (this, One Last Time, Into You, Problem etc.) so I'm glad she opted for Everyday over that.

I'd have loved to have seen a video for Be Alright and think it might have been a decent sized smash. Selfishly, I'd have liked Moonlight to be a single too because I love it lots but it probably wouldn't have been the most wise choice.

I voted in this earlier and went for Let Me Love You, Greedy, Bad Decisions, Touch It Or Thinking Bout You all would have made great singles imo.

Honestly, if they wanted to go with an urban sound they should have gone with Let Me Love You, send that as a dual release with something like Be Alright, and then have Greedy close out the era to cash out on the funk sound. By then That's What I Like would have been destroying airwaves so it would be the perfect time.

I went for 'Be Alright' and 'Thinking About You'. I didn't go for 'Greedy' despite it being my fave non-single, because I honestly couldn't see it working as a single! sad.gif

I must be the only person in the fanbase who doesn't agree ohmy.gif I LIKE greedy but it sounds like a song that wouldn't really connect with the GP, kinda like Run Away With Me (</3) on a bigger scale sad.gif

Touch It is what I put just for greed, it's my favourite album track ever by her. It's so dark and creepy but the drop is just sensational.

This is so difficult to chose. Every song is 11/10.

I tried to narrow it down to 3 but I can't chose out of these 4.

It's completely understandable, this album is just so perfect. I myself voted for 5, so vote away! laugh.gif

But surely it couldn't have done worse than 'Everyday' did? With a nice sassy video it would have totally worked, especially following a hit as big as 'Side To Side'.

Maybe. I think they thought the Future feature on Everyday would help her out with R&B radio
