After she recorded the song "it became super real" to Grande. From her breakup with boyfriend of three years Mac Miller, getting swept up in a whirlwind engagement with Pete Davidson, then breaking up with Davidson after the unexpected death of Miller, as well as an ill-advised hand tattoo, she has truly had a time of it.
Nonetheless, far from conveying bitterness or resentment, "Thank U, Next" is a lovely tribute to those who have poured into our lives and helped us grow on our own life journeys, even if in the end they weren't "the one" for us. In the songs catchy chorus, she vibrantly sings, "Don't want you in my bloodline, yeah/ Just wanna have a good time, yeah/ And no need to apologize, no/ But you gon' have to let this shit go".
Thank U, Next is an exercise in honesty, vulnerability and healing, told with some beautifully controlled vocals, hip-hop swagger and admirable resilience. Additionally, the singer is also selling heart-shaped pillows, shot glasses decorated with the name of her latest album, pink cropped crew-necks, oversized sweatshirts, snap-backs, digital albums, socks and more.
Even Grande wasn't sure if the wedding was going to happen. The song has a very relatable topic, but its execution is nothing new.
While "Sweetener" highlights Grande's process of picking herself back up after a rough year, the 12-track LP, "thank u, next" shows the dark and honest sides of relationships and self-discovery.

It has been reported that the Welsh midfielder will earn £400k a week, making him one of the top ten best paid players in the world.
The album cover itself is fitting for the singer. I find that Grande has somehow redefined my enjoyment of pop music through both "thank u, next" and "Sweetener" with her bravado and ability to reclaim herself in the face of pain and loss. Grande explains her feelings about not wanting to feel down any longer, but she has an apparent inability to escape them.
On Grande's seventh track, "make up", she sings about how fighting and making up are her favorite things in relationships.
Arianators, you guys are truly something else!
Throughout the album, most songs have some intro to them, whether it be Nonna, Grande's grandmother, talking or a friend. Who would've thought it'd turn me to a savage?"-and "NASA"-"you don't wanna leave me but I'm tryna self discover". But she clearly reminds us to think twice - or even thrice - about taking on such enormous responsibilities. Although originally fans assumed this song was about her ex Big Sean, she makes note in the song that she never met this man she wants before. She has a song for everyone - whether single, in a relationship or "it's complicated". "I know it breaks your heart when I cry again "stead of ghostin" him". Overall, there's only one word to describe this album: powerful. "It was just a attractive moment for her", she added.
