I was utterly shocked at the news, given how recently Grande had released her Grammy-winning album Sweetener.
Arianators are teaming up to get the 25-year-old thank u, next superstar her third No. 1 hit from her newest studio album.
When I found out that Ariana Grande released her latest studio album thank u, next on the morning of February 8, I was standing in below-freezing weather at a north Boulder bus stop on my way to a conference in Boston. During an interview on the Zach Sang Show, Grande described how nerves about including the names of her exes on "Thank U, Next" inspired her to experiment with different lyrics.
Grande will then take the tour overseas, where she is set for global performances in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Ireland, and Switzerland, among other stops. First off, it slips further into Black aesthetics than the singer has done previously, bringing up legitimate questions of cultural appropriation and whether she has gone too far. However, it can't do that if the songstress' 7 Rings is still up there.
For me, Grande's anthem "Bloodline" is by far the most powerful statement on the entire album.
The past six months have been particularly eventful and emotional for Grande - themes she confronts on her new 12-track album, named after the immensely relatable breakup song she released on the heels of her broken engagement to comedian Pete Davidson. Even as she pursues a free-spirited fling on "Bloodline", she alludes to heartbreak: "I ain't lookin' for my one true love, yeah that ship sailed away".

Joe Root: English Cricket Captain Praised For Calling Out Homophobia
The 30-year-old was charged for the comments he made to skipper Root, who replied: "Don't use it as an insult". He misses the first four matches of West Indies' one-day series with England .
This song holds a lovely heavenly sound to its melody, with a hypnotizing violin paired with Grande's soothing vocals. In the video, Grande exchanges flirty glances with a man she meets (along with his girlfriend) at a club.
That version of "Thank U, Next" is about what people and the press says about her love life. She dropped the music video for the song the same day as the album, featuring teenage heartthrob Charles Melton.
But it is also quite apparent who she is referencing. But she clearly reminds us to think twice - or even thrice - about taking on such enormous responsibilities.
When readying the release of last August's Sweetener, Ariana Grande was arguably at what many would consider her peak. Many accused her of appropriating black culture.
In terms of love and relationships, Ariana Grande's past projects felt like the honeymoon stage, and "thank u, next" feels like coming to terms with her flaws and mistakes and accepting them for the person it molded into the icon she is today.
Though Williams produced many songs on Grande's last album, he didn't make an appearance on this one.
