The Sweetener World Tour era received a fitting sendoff overnight.
Just as Ariana Grande wrapped up a tour-closing set at The Forum in Inglewood, she also gave fans the gift of a new live album, now available on all major streaming services. The 32-track k bye for now (swt live) features tour versions of songs like "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored," "7 Rings," "No Tears Left to Cry," and more. Nicki Minaj, Childish Gambino, and Big Sean also drop in for some guest spots.
Stream k bye for now (swt live) here via Apple Music and/or below via Spotify.
Speaking on her multitude of pending Grammys nominations back in November, Grande thanked her fans and reiterated just how important this chapter has been for her.
"Thank u for acknowledging this music my beautiful best friends and i created in just a few weeks together," she said in an IG note. "The acknowledgement is truly more than enough on its own for me and my heart. thank u. pls allow me to bring literally all of my friends who worked on it to sit around me so they can make sure my heart is still beating lmao. so much love and gratitude."
k bye for now arrives during a particularly prolific period for Grande, whose Sweetener came out in August 2018 and was quickly followed by Thank U, Next in February of this year.
