Ariana Grande has just released her new single, Thank U, Next. Although her latest album Sweetener has only been out since August, Ariana took to Twitter to let fans know that her fifth studio album is actually finished. So why wait to release it? We found out yesterday that the album is also called Thank U, Next and it should be out very soon!
I woke up this morning to see that Ariana had unexpectedly released the lead single, Thank U, Next. The main thing that blew me away about this track were the lyrics. In the first part of the song she named all four exes, yet rather than shading them, she talks about what they taught her and how she’s thankful for them. I really love this approach to writing about exes. It’s very common to have a song talking about how bad your ex is, but Ariana turning this around and giving a more positive and self-loving vibe is beautiful.
I really love Ariana’s attitude to the heartbreak that she’s faced and the way she’s dealt with it is nothing but inspirational. Showing her fans that although you can lose people and be hurt, the important thing is what you learn from it and what you take away to make yourself an even better person.
Another great thing about this track is how catchy it is. The chorus will be stuck in your head from the first moment you listen to it, but that's not actually a bad thing, because the song is great!
Fans are lucky to have Ariana as a role model and I really can’t wait to hear what the rest of the album will sound like!
Thank U, Next is out now.
