Ariana Grande has been breaking Spotify records with her ‘thank u, next’ track, and now she’s become the latest artist to get her own documentary on YouTube. In fact, ‘Ariana Grande: Dangerous Woman Diaries’ is a four-part docu-series, commissioned by YouTube, which will be published through Grande’s own YouTube channel.

It promises a mixture of behind-the-scenes footage and live performances from her recent career. It will also be free to watch on YouTube, with the first episode dropping today (29 November) then the next three at weekly intervals.

That ties in with YouTube’s just-revealed strategy of focusing on free and ad-supported availability for its original shows, although in this case YouTube Premium subscribers do get something extra: the option to binge all four episodes from today rather than having to wait.

The trailer for the show was released yesterday, and already has more than a million views.

Past music docu-series commissioned by YouTube include the feature-length ‘Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated’ (23.8m views since its release in October 2017) and ‘BTS: Burn The Stage’ (a YouTube Premium series, so no viewing figures bar the 20.5m views for its free first episode).
