Ariana Grande released her album Sweetener in August, and she hasn’t stopped running the pop world ever since. Although she blessed the Earth with singles and visuals off Sweetener, she continued to drop new music into the Fall. Her well-documented relationships with Pete Davidson, Big Sean, and the late Mac Miller inspired her to release “thank u, next,” which has arguably been one of the biggest pop songs of the year. Now, Grande has returned with yet another single: “imagine.”
The latest effort from the gorgeous and talented singer plays like a retro R&B song. She wraps her sweet vocals around an instrumental that exists at the love-making tempo. She sings about love and intimacy, and images a world where nothing but deep emotions of elation and passion surround her and her lover.
