Ariana Grande’s New Single 'Imagine' Shows the Darker Side of Breakups

Ariana Grande broke some serious records with the bop that is “thank u, next.” It’s a breakup anthem about learning from the heartbreaks, instead of the typical revenge-driven ballads. Plus, it came with a rom-com themed music video to rival any Vevo contender.

So, how does one follow such a pop culture triumph? The artist/icon/superhero just released “Imagine,” the next single from the album, thank u, next.

 

 

Grande teased the release of “Imagine” on Twitter this week. In addition to announcing the release day, she dropped a few lyrics for the track.

 

 

 

 

But if you’re expecting another upbeat bop about coming out a stronger woman, think again. This is the emo stepsister to the optimist that was “thank u, next.” Whereas the previous track was about acceptance, this one tackles denial.

 

 

It sounds like thank u, next is going to serve a full range of emotions. We’re ready to laugh and cry it out through every single lyric. Download and stream “Imagine” here. Listen below:
