At least this song is a mash
On Saturday, Ariana Grande had a mission. Miss Grande, Ms. Butera if you’re nasty, spilled that tea on former lover Pete Davidson and then teased the world with information on her newest album. Not to be outdone by her earlier Twitter tea, she gave the world her newest single “Thank U, next.” Yep, Ariana Grande is that bitch that gave the world an empowerment/self-love anthem.
“Thank U, Next” is a classic Ariana Grande bop. It’s better than all of the Pharrell Williams tracks off of “Sweetener,” her latest album that came out in August of 2018. The beat is addictive and the lyrics are extremely and openly honest. This is the Ariana that I live for. I like the Ariana that is just feeling things and sharing what she is feeling with everyone. She’s more mature and helping people with how she’s feeling.
The song’s lyrics are very self-aware and self-reflective. She calls out her exes in the song but rather than trash them, she thanks them for helping her in her self growth. No one really thanks their exes in this way before. Most songs are just tearing down their exes for breaking their heart or something like that *cough* Taylor Swift*cough.*
“Thank U, Next” is a quality bopthem. Yep, I created a new word because of Ms. Butera. I’m honestly all for what this album “Thank U, Next” will bring. It sounds like so far like it’s going to be classic Ari.
