It’s called K Bye for Now (Swt Live).

Not only is the release the 26-year-old’s first-ever live album, but it features a whopping 32 tracks, all recorded from stops on the recently concluded Sweetener world tour.

From God Is a Woman and 7 Rings to Dangerous Woman and Thank U, Next, the selection includes a plethora of Grande’s biggest hits to date.
