The Weeknd praises Ariana Grande’s production skills
“Ariana Grande is insane at comping vocals with 100 stacks. Rosalía engineers herself at the highest level. King Princess will walk around a room and play everything + track alone. Doja has beats of her own that are unreal,” he explained.
Sharing the tweet, The Weeknd also praised Grande. “I’ve seen Ariana work in real time. That woman is a BEAST on Pro Tools,” he wrote.

Responding to Kenny Beats’ tweet, King Princess wrote: “Love you Kenny Beats and it’s rad to have people like you big upping people like us. It’s easy to forget that ARTISTS, and especially women, lgbtq+ and poc artists put work in at the studio and often get overlooked as producers.”
“Never forget girlies, we are the big bosses at the studio,” she added.

Last year, a study confirmed that women are underrepresented in popular music.
Assessing the “gender and race/ethnicity of artists, songwriters and producers across the 800 top songs (taken from the Hot 100 Year-End Billboard Charts) from 2012-2019,” researchers found that less than 23 per cent of artists and less than 2 per cent of producers were women.
