Normally pretty strong, Ari tends to drop a promo single or two before an album release. Some are solid favourites, others have faded into the background slightly.

Yours Truly - no promos
My Everything - Best Mistake (feat. Big Sean)
Dangerous Woman - Be Alright, Let Me Love You (feat. Lil' Wayne)
sweetener - the light is coming (feat. Nicki Minaj)
thank u, next - imagine
positions - no promos

I think I'll go...
1. imagine
2. Let Me Love You
3. Be Alright
4. Best Mistake
5. the light is coming

meh... 'Be Alright' is the only one here that I would say is particularly strong but I do like 'imagine' and 'Best Mistake' too

Best: 'Be Alright' wub.gif I wish this had been a fully-fledged single!
Worst: 'Best Mistake' but this isn't bad at all, a solid list

My taste is changing constantly, I feel like had you asked me last week I would have shouted 'Be Alright' without even thinking twice, but I'm so into her soulful and R&B tracks at the moment.

is 'baby i' not considered a promo single considering i think she absolutely loathed it... she has literally never performed it when it was meant to be a single... i remember she basically did every song at her invite-only London show for the album and that wasn't on the setlist.

Regarding this list... best is 'imagine' or either 'Best Mistakes' or 'Let Me Love You'

Worst is 'Be Alright' although 'The Light IS Coming' isn't far behind

'Baby I' is considered single #2 from 'Yours Truly' yes!

Off the top of my head it had this performance:



She has disowned quite a few of her songs (some very questionable!!) but it doesn't erase their status in her career laugh.gif

'Be Alright' being a promo single is news to me!

Voted for that as the best but this is actually a really strong set of songs, most of these are better than many of her actual singles lol. Worst is 'Best Mistake' which is just ok. x

('the light is coming' slander is not accepted here x)

i always found 'baby i's release so strange... that was it's first live performance over a month after it's release and she literally does a verse, chorus and bridge before moving on laugh.gif

Maybe it just felt like she hated it more because it never got a full performance whereas she wheeled 'the way' out everywhere and then at the london show, she didn't do it.

The sheer whiplash we all got going from 'no tears left to cry' to 'the light is coming' is unmatched
