Ariana Grande revealed what her ‘Thank U, Next’ album is about…but I think you already know
Hint: He’s got BDE and looks like a sexy frog

Alright, so everyone's favorite sentient ponytail is releasing her new album, Thank U, Next, on February 8. And for those keeping track, that's just six months after dropping her last album, Sweetener.
But although only half a year's elapsed between Ari's musical efforts, a lot has changed. I'll save you the emotional rollercoaster of detailing her engagement and subsequent breakup with Pete Davidson, and the shadow ex Mac Miller's untimely death has cast. Ariana's been through the ringer, and she's not holding anything back this time. Hours after releasing the new album's tracklist, Ariana began detailing exactly what each song is about. And it's…well, see for yourself.
First up is a song called "Ghostin" (the lost letter g makes all the difference, you know) and it's painfully obvious who she's talking about.
feeling badly for the person you're with bc you love somebody else. feeling badly bc he can tell he can't compare…. and how i should be ghosting him.

If you feel a tiny inkling of pity for P*** D*******, just wait because it gets so much worse. Ariana says the song "Bloodline" is about liking someone but not enough to make them family. You know, kind of like calling off an engagement? Oof, and then there's "In My Head" which is described as "being in love w a version of somebody you've created in your head. falling for someone that they are not."
Ari promises there's at least one fun bop on the album, but tweeted it's more likely to make you break up with your S.O. than hop into bed. I mean, I guess! Is it too late to ask for Dangerous Woman 2.0?
