What a busy week for Ariana Grande! From clapping back at the Grammy’s to dropping her album thank u, next, she continues to prove that she is queen. Her fifth studio album shows a bit of a change in the singer’s demeanor, as she transitions from cute and poppy to more mature and soulful.
She began her career on bops, and while this album certainly has bops, the tracks as a whole carry much more depth compared to her past releases. The singles that she released prior, “thank u, next” and “7 Rings” garnered massive hype behind the album release.
Give the album a listen below:
As for the Grammy’s, she gave a big ol’ thank u, next to them after they told her she couldn’t play “7 Rings.” Later, in an interview, Grammy’s head honcho Ken explained all was well between him and Ariana. Ariana had other things to say.
In an ongoing tweet from the one below, she continued to say “i offered 3 different songs. it’s about collaboration. it’s about feeling supported. it’s about art and honesty. not politics. not doing favors or playing games. it’s just a game y’all.. and i’m sorry but that’s not what music is to me.”
mhmmm here it is ! “too late for her to pull something together……” pic.twitter.com/YwuBOUkZjr
