With only four days left to go until the release of Ariana Grande‘s new album Sweetener, fans can barely contain their excitement, least of all her biggest fan, fiancé Pete Davidson. Unlike his fellow Arianators, Davidson has already gotten to listen to the entire album well ahead of its August 17 release date. This past weekend, he helped hype up his fiancée’s fans even more when she posted a video on Instagram in which he describes his favorite songs on Sweetener‘s track list.
Topping Davidson’s ranking is “God Is a Woman,” which he lauds in a string of hilarious, NSFW accolades (SFW version: “It slaps hard, dude!”). This should come as no surprise to anyone keeping an eye on the comments of Grande’s Instagram posts. When the song’s video dropped last month, Davidson wrote, “YUM YUM YUM,” followed by a series of heart emojis that perfectly coordinated with the video’s vibe. Next up on his list, obviously, is “My song, which is called ‘Pete,’ which is pretty sick ’cause that’s me,” he said. (Grande recently changed the track’s title from “Pete” to “Pete Davidson.”) Rounding out his top five are “R.E.M.”; “‘Sweetener,’ ’cause it’s just very happy and fun”; and “Better Off,” which he calls “sick,” before clarifying that, in fact, “they’re all sick.” In the background of the video, Grande can be heard giggling at Davidson’s sweet(ener) recs.
The Saturday Night Live star’s favorite songs from Sweetener seem to align pretty well with Grande’s. Last month, in an Instagram comment, she told a fan that “Better Off,” “Goodnight N Go,” and “Pete Davidson,” were especially meaningful tracks. “These three are really beautiful,” she wrote. “I know I said I don’t have favorites, but these and ‘R.E.M.’ are really up there.” Only a few more sleeps until Arianators get to hear those songs for themselves and find out if they agree with the couple’s rankings.
