While k bye for now may not have much new information, it builds on our understanding of Grande as an artist.

NR
Yeah, nvm this is better than Thank U, Next. I still think that album is a very high 9 but this is just simply better.

Despite being a 32 song album, it doesn’t feel like one. It doesn’t feel like you’re sitting in your empty room for over an hour and a half, you feel the chills on your bones.

*sigh* Teenagers.

After realizing I want nothing to do with western pop music at this point, I pretty much stopped caring for artists such as Ariana Grande.
