In preparation for the release of her third studio album, Grande hosted a live chat so that her fans can ask the singer what to expect on the new album. One of the questions that came up was Grande’s decision to change the title of the album from Moonlight. Grande also revealed what being a “dangerous woman” means to her.
“‘Moonlight’ is a lovely song and it’s a lovely title. It’s really romantic, and it definitely ties together the old music and the new music. But ‘Dangerous Woman’ is a lot stronger. I want to be empowering to my fans. I feel like my personal growth is reflected in the sound. I’m really proud of it…To me, a dangerous woman is someone who’s not afraid to take a stand, be herself and to be honest.”
