"The Light is Coming" is the second single from Grande's upcoming album, Sweetener. It follows lead single "No Tears Left to Cry." Minaj works with Ariana for a fifth time on "Light" following their previous collaborations: "Bang Bang," "Get On Your Knees," "Side to Side" and "Bed."
Grande wrote "The Light is Coming" with Minaj and Pharrell Williams, who also doubles as the track's producer. A percolating hip-hop beat like on N.E.R.D.'s "Lemon" backs Nicki and Ariana as they combat any and all negativity. Minaj continues channeling her Chun-Li persona. "Can't let an f-boy eff up my nice vibes," she spits. "The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole," Grande repeatedly chants. The ladies banish the dark with this bonkers club banger.
"The Light is Coming" is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. Grande's Sweetener album will be released on Aug. 17.
