Feb 20, 2019thank u, next builds on Sweetener by switching modes of scale. It’s less about looking at the world than being by yourself, more focused on the textures of memory than our actions stemming from it. ... thank u, next is also Ariana’s most stunning vocal album.

It may be a fast album, but it's simple and refreshing.
Her previous one was great, and she wants to show that in this work she came right away to put her place in the music world.
Her recent album comes with a woman who does not care what they say about her… Expand

Ariana Grande has certainly worked hard and been through a hell of a lot to get where she is today. She is undoubtedly one of the biggest pop stars on the planet right now, and if her success matches her last 2 albums, she could become a huge household name and path the way for new and upcoming artists in years to come. But not if she continues to make music like this.
Ariana started off creating music that was suited to her. It was her style, and for me, that’s why I loved about her. I loved this whole bubblegum pop, the innocence of a new artist confessing her love for guys and creating these really happy songs, and whilst I understand that Ariana has evolved, she has evolved on the wrong path. She has been caught up in this “trend” of trap music and songs that are being played on the radio now. Ariana for me, doesn’t need to do that. She could make any song she wanted and it would be a hit. I’m not sure if tis is because this is genuinely the type of artists that she wants to be, or if this is simply just because her and her team are playing it safe and they know that releasing this kind of music would nab the attention. I do hate to say it because Ariana has the potential to really blow sit out of the park, and we’ve seen her do that.
Whilst I grasp the concept that this album was released and recorded as part of therapy for Ariana, I feel like this album has been rushed in moer ways than one. A lot of the tracks are the same start to finish. Same melodies, same baking track… I don’t feel like this album takes you on a journey. There are the few exceptions, but I just don’t get the whole Ariana Grande package. There are a lot of people that will disagree with me, but I feel like we’re losing the Ariana Grande that had her own body of work and image and was creating music that could have longevity, to releasing those quick fire singles that burn out after 3 months, and it’s a shame because Ariana is probably one of the last real genuinely talented artists out there at the moment that could reach and do so many iconic things in her career, but she’s fitting into this mould of money making, music trend artist, and they just aren’t remembered.
