Just six short months after releasing “Sweetener” Ariana Grande has released another album, titled “Thank U, Next.”
The first single off of “Thank U, Next” was actually a song by the name of “Thank U, Next.” That song went to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, which is a big deal in the music industry.
After that, Grande released “Imagine” and “7 Rings”, “7 Rings” also went number one on the charts. Shortly after releasing these, Ariana dropped her newest album “Thank U, Next” on Feb. 8, 2019. Grande had a third song, “Break Up with Your Boyfriend, I’m Bored”, go number one as well.
After one listen, I decided it was her second best album, after “Dangerous Woman”, her 2016 album. “Thank U, Next” opens with the song “Imagine”, which features some heavy vocals and is about imagining a perfect relationship.
Some of the most notable and my personal favorite songs off of the album would be “NASA”, “Ghostin”, “Bad Idea” and “Bloodline.” These songs are very meaningful and some of them are more upbeat and poppy, which I like.
“Ghostin” is a ballad supposedly written to any future lover that Ariana Grande has and in the song she apologizes for crying and being sad over the death of her former boyfriend, Mac Miller. The song is super sad and a fan favorite.
Overall, the album is very good and worth a listen. The album can be found at any store that sells albums and on all streaming services. The price of the album ranges anywhere from $10 to $15.
