We have to wait until August 17th to hear Ariana Grande's new album Sweetener, but in the mean time, Ari's been running one of the most exhilarating pop rollouts in quite some time. Fresh off dropping "The Light Is Coming" last week, she's now offering a peek of another cut off the record as a birthday gift.


This one's a sublime a capella that's called "Raindrops," the intro to the album. The accompanying video spins the Sweetener cover art into overwhelming perspective, dizzying in the best way. Check out the short clip above, and then be sure to wish Ari a happy birthday.
