Ariana Grande – thank u, next
“thank u, next” is the breakup anthem we always wanted, but never had until now. At first listen, it seems like a simple tune. You feel like you’re listening to her story about her breakup(s) but aren’t really sure where to take it from here. Is this a song you can sing along to? Can choreography be put to it? A second or third listen will tell you that there’s more to this story. Trust – I’ve listened to a lot of breakup songs. Your girl has a playlist of them and when I thought I was going through a heart wrenching breakup sometime in the 2000’s, I leaned on “I Hate This Part” by The Pussycat Dolls. I didn’t know better, but I also never had better.
Ari’s relationship with herself is her focus right now just like we’ve all said that a relationship with ourself is the most important. She just said it in a more profound way.
