Sweetener is Grande’s fourth studio album and is the first album to be released following the attack at her Manchester concert in May 2017. Grande’s pre...

    Grande's album cover features a simple headshot of her, surrounded by a beige background. The most notable feature of the cover is the fact that she is upside down. This is Grande's first album cover that is in color.
