Thank u, Ariana, for making Friday that much better.
The pop sensation, 25, finally dropped her fifth album thank u, next at midnight on Friday, February 8, giving Arianators exactly what they were hoping for.
Fans got hooked instantly – and obviously took to social media right away to praise their girl. Of course, Ari gave the love right back, confessing how grateful she is for her people.
‘’i’m sorry my posts were late. Scooter, Allison, my mom and Wendy made speeches and I can’t stop crying. I love y’all,” she tweeted 18 minutes after the release. The Sweetener singer continued to admit how she was able to keep her head up. ‘’I hope u enjoy this album. this music, you guys and my friends saved my life. love u. sry. iight bye.”

But honestly, we can’t stop crying either. If you thought the single “thank u, next” was deep and personal, then you’ve seen nothing yet. The 12 track feature-less album is all about love and loss, while finding a way to move on. The brunette beauty had a tough year due to the unexpected death of her ex-love Mac Miller, and the split from her fiancé Pete Davidson in October.
The highly awaited drop was very well worth the wait. Every single song left us shook as Ari really lets out all her feels and holds nothing back. But the one song fans can’t get over is ”ghostin,” which appears to be about mourning ex-boyfriend Mac while being engaged to Pete.
“I know that it breaks your heart when I cry again / Over him, mmh / I know that it breaks your heart when I cry again / ‘Stead of ghostin’ him,” Ari sings.
The talented princess is nominated for two Grammy awards this year, Best Pop Vocal Performance for “God Is A Woman” and Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener. Unfortunately, the brunette beauty will not be attending or performing at the ceremony… but as long as she comes out on top, we’ll be OK.
