Ariana Grande’s ‘Positions’ Album Packs a Punch in Concise Release.

Ariana Grande, 27, is a Grammy-winning singer-songwriter.

Ariana Grande unveiled her sixth studio album, “Positions,” on Friday.

Fans received less than a month’s notice for the release, which follows Grande’s wildly successful “Thank U, Next,” a nominee for album of the year at the 2020 Grammy Awards.

Insider’s music team (reporter Callie Ahlgrim and celebrity and music editor Courteney Larocca) listened to the new album on our own, jotting down our initial thoughts track by track.

Overall, we loved how free Grande sounds. The 14-song collection veers more intentionally into R&B and ’90s rhythmic pop than Grande’s most recent releases, and the result is a delightfully cohesive — though almost too-short — jaunt through the pop star’s domestic bliss.

Here is what we thought of each song on “Positions” upon first listen. (Skip to the end to see the only songs worth listening to and the album’s final score.)”Shut Up” is an ingenious album opener.“Shut Up” is the first track on “Positions.” Dave Meyers

Ahlgrim: I’m obsessed with the concept of literally telling your naysayers to “shut up” at the top of an album. Also, harmonizing with yourself saying, “you sound so dumb.”

Combined with Grande’s always-angelic vocals, this song is a sublime flex, and I’m anxious to see where this bold new confidence takes her.

Larocca: Right off the bat, I have zero clue what she’s saying, but I’m vibing: the main signs that this is certainly an Ariana Grande album.

But even though she doesn’t enunciate on the verses, the message comes across loud and clear with those glorious runs of “shut up” and harmonies of “so dumb.” If I were to imagine what an eye-roll sounded like, I would never think it’d be this pretty.
