Ariana Grande's last album, sweetener, isn't even three months old and she's already moving on. Her philosophy on ditching the traditional two-to-four-years-between-albums timeline: "i’m gonna jus keep creating and putting stuff out as i please. it feels good to my soul and i love keeping the kids fed."
Consider me fortified because "thank u, next," the first single off her upcoming album, is a laid-back, feel-good earworm that schools listeners on how to think about our exes. Instead of being bitter, thank them for their time and whatever they taught you, and move onto the next!
And since you're wondering, yes, there is a mention of Pete Davidson: "Almost got married, and for Pete I'm so thankful."
And Big Sean: "Thought I'd end up with Sean, but he wasn't a match."
