Not very long after releasing an amazing collaboration on Nicki’s upcoming album Queen, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande release another song. “The Light Is Coming” from Grande’s upcoming album Sweetener which is due on August 17th. The video for the song features the duo dancing throughout a darkened forest illuminated by distant lights.
The song was co-written and produced by Pharrell and showcases a heavy dance-pop beat and arid instrumentals. A sample from Senator Arlen Specter plays throughout the tune and gives new context to the phrase “The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole.” The message Grande and Minaj want to evoke is clear- there’s good to come.
