Ariana Grande is self-assured and sassy on new album Thank U, Next

Additionally, the singer is also selling heart-shaped pillows, shot glasses decorated with the name of her latest album, pink cropped crew-necks, oversized sweatshirts, snap-backs, digital albums, socks and more.

The time has finally come for what all Ariana Grande fans have been eagerly anticipating - Grande's fifth studio album "thank u, next" released February 8.

Ariana Grande has released her much-anticipated fifth studio album only a few months after the release of her fourth studio album, "Sweetener".

The album explores and celebrates Grande's newfound singlehood, reflecting on lessons learned from past relationships in the title song "thank u, next".

On the other hand, her third track, "NASA", is the complete opposite of the previous song.

Rouhani promised that his country will not abandon missile programme and promised that the "enemy" conspiracies against Iran will fail.

The singer was clearly amused by her fans' efforts.

Last Friday, the world was gifted an iconic new soundtrack courtesy of one Miss Ariana Grande.

After various bouts of darkness throughout the past two years, such as the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, the ending of her engagement with "Saturday Night Live's" Pete Davidson and the tragic terrorist attack that took place at one of her concerts, Grande has been able to mix these troubled times with record-breaking success. As the tempo slows, the orchestrations swell, and Grande's hauntingly lovely voice professes her pain, the listener is struck with nearly shockingly intimate details: "Though I wish he were here instead / Don't want that living in your head / He just comes to visit me / When I'm dreaming every now and then". The ability to combine the emotional distress of her last love and the loss of her ex-love into one song is the most vulnerable thing an artist can do. After her past relationships with Miller and Davidson, it is understandable that she would need something different. The first half of this album showcases a woman with feelings who is not afraid to admit she is not the strongest. "So I didn't know what was gonna happen [with "thank u, next"]". These releases fueled her fans with more anticipation for her music videos and her full album - complete with 12 songs.

Grande explained that the released version of the song was the first version she recorded.

Meanwhile, 25-year-old Davidson recently covered up a neck tattoo he got with Grande with the word "cursed." The theme itself is not healthy in any sense, yet the lighthearted beat of the song makes it sound positive. Grande has only publicly dated men, so the implied kiss at the end has led some viewers to accuse the singer of "queer-baiting" - or, at least, the use of a exhausted trope that (in the context of a song hinting at infidelity) reinforces harmful stereotypes about bisexual people. In the video, Grande exchanges flirty glances with a man she meets (along with his girlfriend) at a club. Hard. So, you might be surprised to hear that some Arianators are boycotting her January single "7 rings" for a pretty hilarious reason. Grande has done enough hiding and is ready for her fans to know a different side of her.
