In 2018, Ariana Grande dropped her fourth studio album Sweetner, surprised us with her ultimate breakup anthem and undoubtedly the number one song of the year "thank u, next", was named and honored by Billboard as "Woman of the Year", all while being trolled by the internet and media as part of her personal and publicly blasted relationship saga.

After the release of her iconic video for "thank u, next", Ariana isn't letting up steam and has released the second official single, "Imagine", fresh off of her forthcoming fifth studio album.

Giving us a further glimpse into the new sound for this next era of Ari, Grande croons lyrics like, "Knew you were perfect after the first kiss / Took a deep breath like, ooh / Feels like forever, baby, I never thought that it would be you", shaping the track as a clear portrait of the trap one sometimes puts themselves in by freely living in the bliss of a past relationship that often times holds one back from ultimately and actually moving on.

Void of naming any names this time around, Ariana allows "Imagine" to be entirely hers and ends the track with, what could possibly be, her most stunning outro yet.

Folks, she ended 2018 on a high note, and I guarantee, 2019 will take Ariana Grande even higher.
