Harry Styles: Live on Tour (Review)
Over the past couple of years, Grande has witnessed a lot of strife. From her past relationships to the Manchester shooting, she has lived a tumultuous life. At just 25, she has gained the wisdom and experience of an elder and thus, has continued to be an example of strength in the music industry. An amazing role model for young girls and even for adults, Ariana reminds us to be optimistic even in the most trying times.
On November 3, 2018, Grande released her new single, thank you, next. After the shocking death of the late, Mac Miller, many people criticized Grande. Furthermore, the sudden announcement of breaking off her engagement with her then fiancé, Pete Davidson, was also a huge shock. There was a lot of speculation on why the courtship ended so suddenly as well as why the whirlwind romance brewed so rapidly. Amidst all of the gossip, Grande trumped all of the tabloids and continues to positively surprise the public by not bashing on her exes.
Here’s the song:

For many years now, she has remained in the spotlight. Being the woman who has constantly reached success, she has also witnessed a lot of despair. Through thick and thin, she remains positive and continues to display her humble attitude through her catchy songs. Thank you, next completely emulates her grateful nature. Most people toward their exes display animosity and disgust. Yet, Grande is one of the few who appreciates her past relationships. With this song, she reflects on her past loves and provides the wisdom that she has gained through each. Furthermore, she gives and rawness that makes you feel like you are truly a part of her life. From Big Sean to Pete Davidson, she does not exclude anyone on this jivey track.
Her song emulates this with its groovy beat and catchy tune. While listening, you wouldn’t consider that this is about her failed relationships. Similar to her song, get well soon, she spins misery into happiness and shines a light on how to climb out of the darkness.
Whether you like Grande’s music or not, you cannot deny her strength. 2018 has been a crazy ride for her and 2017 even crazier. Yet, she continues to persevere and move on from a tragedy. Dominating the music industry and holding her head tall, this 5’0 singer can defy anything.
