Ariana Grande’s ‘Imagine’ Is About ‘Failed Yet Important Beautiful Relationships’
On Tuesday (December 11), Ariana Grande announced that she'll be dropping another new song, "Imagine," on Thursday night (December 13). Now, she's giving fans some insight on what to expect from the upcoming track.
She gave a brief description of the song's themes in her Instagram story, and from the sounds of it "Imagine" will explore failed relationships much like her record-breaking single "thank u, next."
“A lot of this album mourns failed yet important beautiful relationships in my life (as well as celebrates growth / exploring new independence),” reads a snap of a drafted tweet. “But for those of you asking about imagine: i would say if ‘thank u, next’ = acceptance… ‘imagine’ = denial. hope that makes sense.”

Even though the pop star released Sweetener a few short months ago, she's already hard at work on her fifth studio album, thank u, next. And that might not be all she's working on.
During a recent interview with Billboard, the 25-year-old emphasized her need to break free from the pop star mold.
“I don’t want to do what people tell me to do, I don’t want to conform to the pop star agenda. I want to do it on my own terms from now on," she said. "If I want to tour two albums at once, I’m going to tour two albums at once. If I want to drop a third album while I’m on tour [in 2019], I’ll do that too! Please."
"I want to be able to do what is authentic and honest and natural," she added. "It’s the only way that I’ve been able to survive.”
