The promotional single is, “The Light Is Coming”, a duet with Nicki Minaj, and the official second single is “God Is A Woman.” “Sweetner” also includes collaborations with Missy Elliot and Pharrell Williams. “Sweetner” comes well over a year after the devastating attack at her Manchester concert, which killed 22 people.
