It's an album that I want to do a little bit different. I don't want it to sound like an extension of Yours Truly. I want it to sound like an evolution. I want to explore more sounds and experiment a little bit. I have a bunch of ideas I'm very excited about and a lot of stuff cooking.

– Ariana Grande on her sophomore studio album[1]

My Everything is Ariana Grande's sophomore studio album. It was released through Republic Records on August 25, 2014. The album was recorded starting in October 2013 and finished between May 23 and May 25, 2014.

Background

Following the release of Grande's debut studio album Yours Truly on September 3, 2013 which met with positive reviews, Grande confirmed she began working and writing on the album. Recording sessions began in October 2013 and she had a meeting with Republic Records to discuss the album that same month.[2] Grande was initially aiming at releasing the album around February 2014.

It was announced on March 3, 2014 that Grande would be featured on the fifth single from Chris Brown's upcoming sixth studio album X titled "Don't Be Gone Too Long". The single was originally set for release on March 25, 2014, however was postponed due to Brown being sent to jail awaiting trail on assault charges. Grande had announced the songs delay on March 17, 2014 and that same night she held a live stream to make up for the singles delay, where she previewed four new songs from her second album: "My Everything", "You Don't Know Me", "Only 1," and "Too Close." Two days later following the announcement Grande revealed due the songs delay, she would be releasing the first single from her upcoming sophomore studio album instead. She finished working on the album in late May.[3]

Singles

The lead single, "Problem", was released on April 28, 2014. It remains her most successful single to date and features Australian rapper Iggy Azalea and American rapper Big Sean (uncredited).

The second single, "Break Free", featuring Zedd, was released on July 2, 2014.

Jessie J's hit song "Bang Bang", which features Ariana and Nicki Minaj, was featured on the deluxe version of My Everything and is therefore considered a single from said album. It was released on July 29, 2014, technically making it the third single from the album, followed by "Love Me Harder" and "One Last Time".

The third single, "Love Me Harder", was released on September 30, 2014.

The fourth single, "One Last Time", was released on February 10, 2015.

Promotional singles

The first promotional single, "Best Mistake", was released on August 12, 2014.

The second promotional single, "One Last Time", was released on August 22, 2014 before becoming the final single from the album.

Promotion and release

The album was scheduled to be released in the UK, Ireland, Germany, and all Oceania countries on August 22, 2014. Provided New Zealand and Australia are 18-12 hours ahead of America, the album was released on the correct dates in such territories which resulted in an August 21 "leak" for most other countries.[4][5] It was released in the United States and worldwide on August 25, 2014. Then, My Everything was the fastest album to hit #1 on iTunes in America.

Tour

Grande has embarked on her second tour titled The Honeymoon Tour in support of My Everything. It started on February 25, 2015 and ended on October 25, 2015.
