Il 13 novembre 2016, Ariana ha confermato su Snapchat di aver terminato il quarto album. Ha successivamente chiarito dicendo, "I didn't mean to make an album, and I don't know if it's done at all, but I just have a bunch of songs that I really really like. I've been working a lot and have been creating and feeling inspired."[5][6][7] Il 10 gennaio 2017, Ariana ha confermato nuovamente attraverso un tweet di aver finito l'album, ma successivamente ha cancellato il tweet.[8]

Il 5 marzo 2017, durante il soundcheck della tappa a Toronto del Dangerous Woman Tour, Ariana ha confermato che le canzoni di cui aveva precedentemente fatto sentire uno snippet ("She Got Her Own", "My Way" e "Sober") non sarebbero state presenti nell'album.

It's unreal".[18]

On May 1, 2018, during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Grande revealed the title of the album, Sweetener.
