Ariana Grande's career followed initially the same pattern as the other female artists in the commercial pop music absolute center done before her, such as Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus.
She broke through as barnstjärna on tv, she released a debut album of romantic pop songs, she followed up with even bigger hits, but adjusted gradually its image to be less sockersöt and more tough and sexy. She did the songs with the rowdy rapper and began to sneak in profanity in their lyrics, she was an extremely public figure who was worshipped by his fans but got a couple of miniskandaler in the gossip columns. At the same time, she worked in a bizarre fast-paced and it was never quiet.
Had his career continued to follow the classic pattern would Ariana Grande the time probably have a breakdown and flip out of the total. And then become a weird artist that alienated the masses, and the entertainment industry discreet would turn the spotlight towards a new young woman to exploit.
unexpectedly: just after Ariana Grande gave a concert in Manchester in may 2017 a bomb exploded at the arena. Twenty-two people died and hundreds were injured, most were children and young people. How Ariana Grande could organize a stödkonsert for terrorattentatets victims just a couple of weeks later is difficult to comprehend, as well as how she was able to continue and complete the tour with a further forty-three concerts.
Afterwards she was completely empty, went into a depression and was plagued by recurring anxiety attacks. She recorded an album, ”Sweetener” which was released in the last year, where her mental health at times had to take place (in ”Breathin” and ”Goodnight n go”), but above all marked by the distance, emotional coldness and professionalism. She collaborated with Pharrell Williams on many songs on the album, and in his pseudocoola sound she was able to escape from the pain.
at the same time escaped the Grande into a new love relationship, and erased the border between the artwork and the artist when she named a song on the album to ”Pete Davidson”, the name of the new boyfriend. She got together with him a month after she broken up with the love of his life, the rapper Mac Miller, whose abuse became too much for their relationship. In the fall, he died of an overdose. A month later, Ariana Grande end with Davidson.

by Ariana Grande who is desperately groping in the darkness, ”Thank u, next” the sound of an artist that has landed and dare to look at their feelings and experiences with the finished look. Pharrell Williams is thankfully out of the picture, instead, she has collaborated with the reliable Max Martin, Ilya Salmanzadeh and Tommy ”TBHits” Brown, as well as some fresh new name. They dress Grandes texts – the strongest and most personal that she has written – in the music that accentuates the emotions and at the same time allows hittig.
instead of singing about the blind infatuation sings Grande on the need to be alone (”NASA”), that the destructive project a dream image of a partner who barely has had time to get to know (”In my head”), that have a bad conscience for not gotten over his ex (”Ghostin”), to make an end in a dramatic way (”Bloodline”) and to find inner peace as a single (the title song).
She also makes songs that are common among male rappers, but less common among the female pop artists – she boasts happily about how successful she has become (”7 rings”), and suggests that the person she is attracted to will ignore his girlfriend and have a one night stand with her instead (”Break up with your girlfriend, I'm bored”).
It doesn't feel like a seem mismatched image, but as honest thoughts. Very ärligast feels, however, ”Fake smile”, one of the clearest songs on the feel of crap that has ever been made by a commercial pop singer.
”Thank u", " next” has Ariana Grande made their strongest album so far. She is not a Mariah Carey copy that on her first album, she is no longer the anxiously contrived ”bad girl” on the subsequent, she is no longer half disconnected on any ”Sweetener”. She has found herself.
