Ariana Grande has once again touched the hearts of many, with her new single, ‘thank u, next’, which was released on Sunday. Grande has had an extremely tough year, which many would find very hard to cope with. However, the ray of sunshine has not only brought herself some light out of the darkness with this song, but also for many other people too.

A few weeks ago, it was reported that Ariana, and her ex-fiancé, Pete Davidson, had broken up. Despite the pair moving pretty fast with their relationship, with the two being engaged after only five months of dating, they seemed pretty happy. However, the media don’t always show the full story, so we never know what’s going on behind closed doors. Since then, Davidson has commented on the break-up in a jokey manner during a benefit comedy show he did with fellow comedian, Judd Apatow, and during this week’s SNL.

Whilst we mention SNL, it’s worth noting that Ariana, being the shady queen that she is, released the single thirty minutes before SNL aired. If that’s not the most Ariana Grande way of showing your ex how powerful you really are, then I don’t know what is. Despite the comments from Pete, Ariana had yet to comment on the whole situation…until now…

After the rollercoaster year Grande has had, this song was just what she needed to hear. It’s titled, ‘thank u, next’, and it is about Ariana’s past relationships and what they have taught her. She didn’t trash talk anyone, and actually thanked all of her ex-boyfriends for making her realise that she needs to love herself before she can love anybody else.
ariana showing y’all that there is such thing as appreciating your ex for what they taught you
no need to hate & trash talk, just learn & move on

As she sings the verse, “plus I met someone else…her name is Ari.” fans absolutely lost it at how inspirational their idol is. She has become her own role model, and with so many people across the globe listening to this song and commenting on how they now realise their worth after hearing this song, their motive and outlook on life has changed completely.
"thank u, next" by ari is probably the best song she's ever made. it's about self realisation. at one point she says "I met someone new", and I was like oh girl, no. but then she says "her name is ari" and I'm like YES. you learn through pain and you end up finding yourself.

I, for one, absolutely adore this song, and it really is a testament to no matter how much things can break you, you can only fight and come out stronger. We love you, Ari!
