Ariana Grande Reflects A Year After ‘Thank U, Next’ Release

November 3rd marked one year since Ariana Grande released her iconic breakup bop ‘Thank U, Next.” The song became an instant classic, with her referencing past relationships with Pete Davidson, Big Sean, and Mac Miller. It led the singer to set the record straight about her past relationships and begin the year of self-love that she needed.

She took to Twitter to share how the past year, and the release of the song, has helped her to heal and learn.

“happy birthday ‘thank u, next’. i can’t believe i’ve spent more time alone this year than i have in my life, i can’t believe how many sessions w my therapist i’ve had, how many times i’ve sung this song, how much i’ve learned and healed, how much i still have to learn and heal,” wrote Grande.

“it’s been one hell of a productive, emotional, wild and yet … happy! year. thankful for my babies who have provided me with endless strength, energy and inspiration… and to my friends who have held me together on the road and at home. i’m sure they’re just as exhausted lmao,” she continued.

“i still don’t know ab love or have a clue what a personal life looks like other than hanging with pups and piggy which i’ve learned is … actually … more than enough,” said Grande. “even though everything is up in the air / i still have a million questions … i’ve accepted it and feel somewhat whole and that feels like something worth sharing, i guess. love u.”

The singer has a lot to be proud of from the past year. From a successful album and tour to executive producing the Charlie’s Angels soundtrack, we can’t wait to see what she does next!
