“I love you @Pharrell, @Scooterbraun, @AllisonKaye, every human being at @republicrecords, @awsuki, @ilya_music, Max Martin, @TBHits, @VictoriaMonet, @SocialHouseTC, @RecordingAcademy & the voters,” she wrote.
But Grande knows she wouldn’t be where she is without her fans. She showed her appreciation for her Arianators by saying, “But mostly thank y’all for being my main source of joy and inspiration always.”
Then, she gave Pharrell Williams, who produced the album, another shout-out and asked him to call her so they could presumably organize a little celebration.
Although this was Grande’s first win, she’s been previously nominated for five awards. In 2014 she received Grammy nods for “Bang Bang” and My Everything and snagged two noms for “Dangerous Woman” in 2016. In addition to Best Pop Vocal Album, Grande was also nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance for “God Is a Woman” this year. The award ultimately went to Lady Gaga for her song “Joanne,” however.
This might be her first Grammy, but we’re guessing it won’t be her last. Get it, Ariana.
