Second Album: My Everything
After her first hit album in less than six months, the singer started working on her second one. After a year her second album My Everything was released in August 2014. The album showed the world Grande’s versatility as a singer. Continuing her streak of success, it went straight to number one on the Billboard 200 chart.

Another treat for the fans on her Miami concert was Justin Beiber, who performed with the singer on some songs. The Honeymoon Tour grossed $41.8 million.
Third Album: Dangerous Woman
Grande released her third album in May, 2016. Originally the songstress had plans to name it Moonlight but she finalized Dangerous Woman as she believed it sounded much stronger and was a better choice.
