Listen: Ariana Grande's new song 'thank u, next'.

Ariana Grande has shared a new song today, 'thank u, next', which is an empowering anthem of self-strength that claims back the tabloid narratives that the media have attached to her love-life in recent years, and which she has said will be the final song in the tracklisting of her next album.

'thank u, next' lyrics:

Thought I’d end up with Sean
But he wasn’t a match
Wrote some songs about Ricky
Now I listen and laugh
Even almost got married
And for Pete I’m so thankful
Wish I could say thank you to Malcolm
Cause he was an angel
 
One taught me love
One taught me patience
And one taught me pain
Now I’m so amazing
Say I’ve loved and I’ve lost
But that’s not what I see
So look what I got
Look what you taught me
And for that I say
 
(HOOK)
Thank u, next
Thank u, next
Thank u, next
I’m so fucking grateful for my ex
Thank u, next
Thank u, next
Thank u, next
I’m so fucking...
 
Spend more time with my friends
I ain’t worried bout nothing
Plus I met someone else
We having better discussions
I know they say I move on too fast
But this one gon’ last
Cause her name is Ari
And I’m so good with that
 
She taught me love
She taught me patience
How she handles pain
That shit’s amazing
I’ve loved and I’ve lost
But that’s not what I see
Cause look what I found
Ain’t no need for searching
And for that I say
 
(HOOK)
Thank u, next
Thank u, next
Thank u, next
I’m so fucking grateful for my ex
Thank u, next
Thank u, next
Thank u, next
I’m so fucking grateful for my ex
Thank u next
Thank u next
Thank u next
I’m so fucking...
 
One day I’ll walk down the aisle
Holding hands with my mama
I’ll be thanking my dad
Cause she grew from the drama
Only wanna do it once real bad
Gon’ make that shit last
God forbid something happens
Least this song is a smash
 
I got so much love
Got so much patience
I’ve learned from the pain
Turned out amazing
Say I’ve loved and I’ve lost
But that’s not what I see
Cause look what I got
Ain’t no need for searching
And for that I say
 
(HOOK)
Thank u, next
Thank u, next
Thank u, next
I’m so fucking grateful for my ex
Thank u, next
Thank u, next
Thank u, next
I’m so fucking grateful for my ex
 
Thank u, next
Thank u, next
Thank u, next
Yeah
 
Thank u, next
Thank u, next
Thank u, next
Yeah
