Revision as of 12:21, May 29, 2016

It's an album that I want to do a little bit different. I don't want it to sound like an extension of Yours Truly. I want it to sound like an evolution. I want to explore more sounds and experiment a little bit. I have a bunch of ideas I'm very excited about and a lot of stuff cooking.

– Ariana Grande on her sophomore studio album[1]

My Everything is Ariana Grande's sophomore studio album. It was released through Republic Records on August 25, 2014. The album was recorded starting in October 2013 and finished in May 2014.

Background

Following the release of Grande's debut studio album Yours Truly on September 3, 2013 which met with positive reviews, Grande confirmed she began working and writing on the album. Recording sessions began in October 2013 and she had a meeting with Republic Records to discuss the album that same month.[2] Grande was initially aiming at releasing the album around February 2014.

It was announced on March 3, 2014 that Grande would be featured on the fifth single from Chris Brown's upcoming sixth studio album X titled "Don't Be Gone Too Long". The single was originally set for release on March 25, 2014, however was postponed due to Brown being sent to jail awaiting trail on assault charges. Grande had announced the songs delay on March 17, 2014 and that same night she held a live stream to make up for the singles delay, where she previewed four new songs from her second album: "My Everything", "You Don't Know Me", "Only 1," and "Too Close." Two days later following the announcement Grande revealed due the songs delay, she would be releasing the first single from her upcoming sophomore studio album instead. She finished working on the album in late May.[3]

Singles

The lead single, "Problem", was released on April 28, 2014. It remains her most successful single to date.

The second single, "Break Free" was released on July 2, 2014.

The third single, "Bang Bang", was released July 29, 2014.

The fourth single, "Love Me Harder", was released on September 30, 2014.

The fifth single, "One Last Time", was released on February 10, 2015.

Promotional singles

A promotional single, "Best Mistake", was released on August 12, 2014.

"One Last Time" was first released as a promotional single on August 22, 2014.

Promotion and release

On March 11, 2016, Grande made pre-order for the album available. On April 16, 2016, Grande revealed the official tracklist via iTunes.

The album was scheduled to be released in the UK, Ireland, Germany, and all Oceania countries on August 22, 2014. Provided New Zealand and Australia are 18-12 hours ahead of America, the album was released on the correct dates in such territories which resulted in an August 21 "leak" for most other countries.[4][5] It was released in the United States and worldwide on August 25, 2014. Then, My Everything was the fastest album to hit #1 on iTunes in America.

Tour

Grande has embarked on her second tour titled The Honeymoon Tour in support of My Everything. It started on February 25, 2015 and ended on October 25, 2015.
