Ariana Grande’s name has been everywhere the last few months as the singing star has been releasing record-breaking single after record-breaking single. Don’t get tired of seeing her name yet because her newest album “Thank U, Next” is topping the charts as well.

Released Feb. 8, the album comes out less than a year since “Sweetener” which Grande released Aug. 2018. It’s the ultimate relationship album as Grande talks about all of her feelings within the songs. The 12-track album includes singles she released prior to the album such as “Imagine,” “7 Rings,” and “Thank U, Next,” the titular track.

Once again, Grande’s incredible vocal abilities are showcased in this album. Towards the end of “Imagine,” Grande can be heard singing whistle notes that sound angelic and stunning. The chorus of “In My Head” is really fun to listen to as it goes from low to high through all of the ranges.

One of the more upbeat songs on the album is “NASA” which has a catchy chorus and chant. The message is a unique way to say she needs space.

Not only did Grande release the album, she also released the music video for the album’s third single ‘Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored.” The song is one of the more fun and upbeat songs on the album and the video has received more than 35 million views and counting. The song is about an obsession with someone who is already in a relationship, and throughout the video Grande is seen flirting with a guy whose girlfriend shares a striking resemblance to Grande, sporting a sleek high ponytail. However, at the end of the video it appears that Grande leans in for a kiss with the girl. This scene has caused fans to comment on her sexuality and queer-baiting.

Like with any album, not every song can be an all time favorite. “Needy” was repetitive and didn’t have a strong beat. Grande’s voice was overpowered by a background chime and that drew all attention away from her voice.

Grande’s name just keeps getting bigger with everything she releases, and this album is not one to miss.
