Ariana Grande couldn’t quite crack the top 10 with “God is a Woman,” which was released on July 13 along with an eye-popping music video featuring cosmic visuals. It debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart at number-11, under her earlier single “No Tears Left to Cry,” which continues its strong run and holds steady at number-8.

Artist Alexa Meade blurs the line between 2D and 3D art through brilliant body painting. Throughout the years, her practice has perfected a type of delightful illusion that makes this oscillation possible. When you look at Meade’s work in still images, you assume that you’re viewing a conventional painting, but to see her art in person—or in the process of creation—is a whole different story. The artist’s subjects are people who have been painted to look like they’re figments of a 2D picture—clad in vibrant hues and energetic brush strokes—but move in a three-dimensional space.

The video, which already has 40 million views, merges religious and sexual symbolism. She is pictured performing sexual acts on planet earth, being worshipped by a choir dressed in white, and as a goddess in a recreation of Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam.
“Sex is empowering,” she wrote to a Twitter user who asked about the song. “It’s the source of all life.”

When Ariana Grande announced her new album ‘Sweetener’, we were super excited and rightly so. Tracks like ‘No Tears Left To Cry’ and ‘The Light Is Coming’ have been amazing so far and now we’re about to get ‘God Is A Woman’.

Ari made the announcement about her latest single via Twitter, where she revealed the news in a chat with a fan.

Ariana Grande is a star. A really big star. For millions of Arianators, as her fans are known, she’s a radiant, life-giving force they wake up with in the morning and go to bed with at night. They’ve followed the phases of her career as she’s risen from Broadway (the musical 13) to TV (Nickelodeon’s Victorious and Sam & Cat) to the apex of pop stardom and commercial success (eight multiplatinum singles, 9 billion music video streams on YouTube). They’ve contributed to the $100 million-plus that her tours have made, casting the likes of Drake and Sting in Ariana’s petite but long, five-foot shadow. They are among Ariana’s 121 million Instagram followers, making her the third-most-followed person, above both Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé. And when her latest album, Sweetener, drops August 17, Arianators will have helped its lead single, “No Tears Left to Cry,” break records set by none other than Ariana herself.

[Chorus]
You, you love it how I move, you
You love it how I touch you, my one
When all is said and done
You’ll believe God is a woman
And I, I feel it after midnight
A feelin’ that you can’t fight, my one
It lingers when we’re done
You’ll believe God is a woman

[Verse 1]
I don’t wanna waste no time, yeah
You ain’t got a one-track mind, yeah
Have it any way you like, yeah
And I can tell that you know I know how I want it
Ain’t nobody else can relate
Boy, I like that you ain’t afraid
Baby, lay me down and let’s pray
I’m tellin’ you the way I like it, how I want it

[Pre-Chorus]
(Yeah) And I can be all the things you told me not to be
(Yeah) When you try to come for me, I keep on flourishing

[Chorus]
You, you love it how I move, you
You love it how I touch you, my one

And I, I feel it after midnight
A feelin’ that you can’t fight, my one
It lingers when we’re done

[Verse 2]
I tell you all the things you should know
So baby, take my hands, save your soul
We can make it last, take it slow, hmm
And I can tell that you know I know how I want it, yeah
But you’re different from the rest
And boy, if you confess, you might get blessed
See if you deserve what comes next
I’m tellin’ you the way I like it, how I want it

[Pre-Chorus]
(Yeah) And I can be all the things you told me not to be
(Yeah) When you try to come for me, I keep on flourishing
