Ariana Grande’s hit song “God Is a Woman” dropped July 13, causing an uproar of controversy among both fans and critics around the world. Though Grande has received enormous amounts of support, some Christians believe the song is blasphemous.

“God isn’t a woman or man. He’s God. There was no such thing a man or woman until He decided to create them on Earth in His image. These people don’t know what they are doing with their blasphemy,” a Twitter user, Kayla, (@kaylazert) stated in a post. However, releasing “God Is a Woman” is not Grande’s first controversial act, and it will not be the last. The 25-year-old pop star has stated that she is unafraid of controversy, that she will remain strong and unafraid to speak her mind.

Even though the song is beyond debatable, it is also beautifully written and infused with Grande’s signature dynamics as well as her spectacular vocal acrobatics. The track is full of tasteful drops and littered with electronic sounds, over which Grande harmonizes with herself to bring listeners into the world she has created for three-and-a-half minutes. Grande has been trying on a completely new, more powerful persona of music in her newest recording, Sweetener, but “God Is a Woman” gives the album the maturity that her previous releases lack.

Though Grande has not resolved any theological debates with her song, it has made some believe that Grande is no longer just an ex-Nickelodeon star, but a rising queen in the music industry who should be taken seriously.
