After much anticipation, Ariana Grande releases her fifth studio album, thank u, next.
The follow up to last year’s Sweetener album contains 12 songs in total and features no guest appearances allowing the international pop star to jump on production from ILYA, Happy Perez, Baptiste, Social House, & others all by herself.
“This [album’s] not particularly uplifting. A lot of it sounds really upbeat, but it’s actually a super sad chapter,” Ariana said about the album. “A lot of this album mourns failed yet important, beautiful relationships in my life (as well as celebrates growth / exploring new independence).”
Out now on iTunes, fans can stream the album in its entirety for free thanks to the good folks at Spotify. Hit play and let us know what you think.
