Best Lyrics from Each Song on Ariana Grande’s ‘Thank U, Next’


Me with no makeup, you in the bathtub  Bubbles and bubbly, ooh 

This isn’t one of my favorite songs off the album, but when I hear these lyrics I feel so relaxed. 



I’m obsessive and I love too hard  Good at overthinking with my heart 

Can we talk about this lyric for a second? Too. Real. 



It’s like I’m the universe and you’ll be N-A-S-A 

You’ll be my rise and shine soon as them stars align, mmm 

My favorite song off the album is undeniably NASA, and this lyric is just gold. 



And no need to apologize, no  But you gon’ have to let this shit go

Ari spilling some truth in these lyrics. 


fake smile 

I’m happy for the love and all of the above.

I think it’s safe to say we all fake smile at least once a day. This lyric is cute, anyway. 


bad idea 

How ’bout we take a little bit of time away?  

Without context, this lyric sounds like it has pure intentions, but when you consider the song title you realize it’s about… a bad idea. That might make me like this lyric more, though.  


make up 

It’s a mood, it’s a vibe, it’s a look, it’s a match 

This basically explains how I feel about everything in life, tbh. 



But I love you, we’ll get past this, I’m a girl with  A whole lot of baggage, oh yeah

Wow, Ari got me feeling so much with this lyric! 


in my head 

I thought you were the one  But it was all in my head 

I don’t know anyone who is not in their head about everything when it comes to crushes or significant others. We all fantasize– even Ari. 


7 rings 

Think retail therapy my new addiction 

Shopping cures all ills, right? 


thank u, next 

One taught me love  One taught me patience  And one taught me pain 

This song is just iconic and these lyrics made for the best Twitter content. 


break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored 

You could say I’m hatin’ if you want to  But I only hate on her ’cause I want you 

I can’t deny these lyrics are something most of us think/do, but let’s not hate other women, y’all!


Let us know what your top songs and/or lyrics are from the album!
