    Of course, the album is a highly polished product and not some diary page. But it feels lived in, truthful, authentic.

    A singer who not only knows what she wants but knows that she's wanted, and that attitude unites and propels thank u, next through its ballads and R&B jams, turning it into an album that embodies every aspect of Ariana Grande, the grand pop star.

    thank u, next builds on Sweetener by switching modes of scale. It’s less about looking at the world than being by yourself, more focused on the textures of memory than our actions stemming from it. ... thank u, next is also Ariana’s most stunning vocal album.

    An album that ultimately serves as both an emancipation and a proclamation, Grande fully bending her collaborators to her will instead of merely playing in their sandboxes, and creating a blissful fusion of pop and R&B that is entirely her own.

    This is one of the year’s best pop albums so far, even in a 2019 that’s already turning out to be a great one for new music. Thank U, Next makes you suspect that the best Ariana is yet to come.

    [7 Rings] is a hit, but isn’t actually all that great, using Rodgers and Hammerstein’s My Favourite Things as its sing-song musical base. The rest of the album remains of interest for its evolutions in sound, delivery and attitude.

The hype culminating to its release was well deserved as it exceeded expectations, mine went past the stratosphere. It reminds me vividly of 24K Magic and I'm unashamedly a stan for the excellent artist behind it--a short collection of songs that deserve every attention it gets. Angelic melodies are spread throughout the album with Needy, Fake Smile and the title track holding the reins; the rest as elite passengers with the whole lot serving spellbinding entertainment for everyone that's in for a ride.
