Ariana Grande dropped the new single from her upcoming album Thank U, Next last night, and it's a casual reminder that she has a vocal range to rival Mariah's.
"Imagine" is a dreamy, sultry jam with some surprise high notes. The best way to describe it would be "cloud emoji," but unfortunately those don't work on our website.
The new track is way sadder and slower than "Thank U, Next", but shares a similar break up theme. Chatting with her fans on Twitter, Grande said the song was about "a simple, beautiful love that is now (and forever) unattainable." If "Thank U, Next" was a break up song about acceptance, she said, "Imagine" is a break up song about denial.
Right before sharing the song, Grande cheekily requested that Drake and Kanye stop fighting on Twitter and give her and Miley Cyrus some space to share their new music. And "Imagine" is definitely a good alternative to one of Ye's most self-indulgent Twitter threads ever.
