Ariana Grande Honors A Simple, Beautiful Love On New Track Imagine
"I wanted to mix up the energy a lil bit as both of those themes are equally prevalent on the album / in my life rn."
Grande wrote of the track on Wednesday, I would say if Thank U, Next = acceptance Imagine = denial. Hope that makes sense. She continued in response to a fan, Kind of like pretending it never ended. Denial. But I look forward to you hearing it and having your own experience with it. You may take away something totally different and specific to your life! Love u.
Knew you were perfect after the first kiss / Took a deep breath like 'Oooh' / Feels like forever, baby, I never / Thought that it would be you / Tell me your secrets, all of the creep s--t / That's how I know it's true," the lyrics continue.
"A lot of this album mourns failed yet important, beautiful relationships in my life (as well as celebrates growth / exploring new independence)," Grande wrote on Instagram Stories. "But for those of you asking about 'Imagine': I would say if 'Thank U, Next' = acceptance... 'Imagine' = denial. Hope that makes sense."
Grande had revealed on Twitter on Thursday that her Thank U, Next album contains 13 tracks. The title song, which references her past relationships with the likes of the late Mac Miller and most recently, ex-fiancé Pete Davidson, dropped in early November. At the end of that month, she released a music video for it. The clip parodies four hit early '00s filmsMean Girls, Legally Blonde, Bring It On and 13 Going on 30.
Grande's Thank U, Next album, her fifth major record, is expected to be released next year.
"We're finalizing these mixes and arrangements now," Grande tweeted on Wednesday. "I'm very happy with all of it. Lots of strings so. You know me. My heart meltssss."
