Ariana Grande Releases ‘Slightly Deluxe’ Edition of ‘Eternal Sunshine’ With Mariah Carey, Troye Sivan Features

It’s only been a few days since Ariana Grande released her seventh studio album, Eternal Sunshine. But after a major weekend in which she both performed on Saturday Night Live and presented an award at Sunday night’s (March 10) Academy Awards, Grande wasn’t done giving her fans something to talk about.

On Monday morning (March 11), as promised over the weekend, the singer surprise-dropped what she dubbed the “Slightly Deluxe” version of of the new album featuring four additional tracks, including her previously heard duet with idol Mariah Carey on single “Yes, and?” and a collaboration with Troye Sivan on “Supernatural.”

The expanded version of the album also features an acoustic version of “Imperfect For You” and an acapella take on “True Story.” The quick-turnaround expanded LP comes after Eternal Sunshine shot to the top of Spotify’s most-streamed chart immediately upon release, becoming the most-streamed album in a single day so far this year.

Grande returned to the stage on Saturday night, when she performed the new songs “We Can’t Be Friends (Wait For Your Love)” and “Imperfect For You” on SNL, and hammed it up in a Moulin Rogue spoof sketch with her Wicked co-star SNL cast member Bowen Yang. Grande also popped into a bit about a support group for people pleasers.

Ari was clearly having a blast returning to Studio 8H, posting two sets of pics from her night on Instagram, including shots of her in various costumes, Yang’s interpretation that the Eternal Sunshine album is “a dream” that you wake up from at the end, as well as shots of her performances and of her mom, Joan Grande, introducing Grande’s second song on the show.

Grande was still in Wicked mode on Sunday night, when she and another of her movie musical co-stars, Cynthia Erivo, channeled their characters on the Oscars red carpet before co-presenting an award later in the night.
