Ariana Grande has moved on from "thank u, next" and her Sweetener album and is already releasing even more new music. This week, Ariana started teasing a new song called "Imagine," and she just shared the first snippet of it so we Arianators don't have to spend the rest of the day and night wondering what it's going to sound like.
She uploaded the clip to her Insta stories, and it sounds like a true Ari ballad. Like she said before, this song is everything "thank u, next" wasn't. It's not about feeling grateful for your exes (LOL) and moving on, it's about denial and, like the rest of the new album, is about "failed yet important, beautiful relationships in my life."
Of course, the last relationship Ariana was in was with comedian Pete Davidson, so she could very well be talking about him and calling off their engagement. When fans asked for more details, she didn't confirm who it's about, but she did say it's "kind of like...pretending it never ended. denial. but i look forward to you hearing it and having your own experience with it. you may take away something totally different and specific to your life!"

After Ari and Pete split, she opened up about what a rough year it's been for her and how she still loves him. She said, "I will always have irrevocable love for him and if you've gotten any other impression from my recent work you might have missed the point." So even IF this song is about Pete, it likely won't be hateful or anything.
Ugh, midnight can't come soon enough!
