Really hoping for Bloodline or Bad Idea at this point, wouldn't be mad at NASA.

Will it be something from this album? I was starting to think she'd just given up on it.

Obviously I just want 'Bloodline' to be announced so desperately, it'd be such a waste of potential if that doesn't get a chance to shine.

Posted by: LewisGT May 11 2019, 08:58 PM

She shared a video on her Instagram story yesterday that said

"I love the song we made last night sm i wanna drop it this summer pls. can we maybe" and tagged Scooter Braun and some other people.


I'm hyped if she does release a new song but I think she's going to reach the point where she's become too overexposed to the general public if she does.

If it's another Monopoly she can keep it.

Why did the tweet I included in my original post disappear? I look stupid now laugh.gif

I don’t think we’ll have any more singles from thank u next sad.gif

Why do I get the feeling this is for a soundtrack?

"stupid now".. sure.

Srs tho, the soundtrack single thing could be a shout tbh. I just don't know which movie? Maybe Hobbs & Shaw? (ala See You Again for Fast & Furious 7 etc..)

That's why I was confused. laugh.gif

I'm up for new material any day of the week, but I CAN'T with all of these wasted singles... PianoBreakYourHeartRightBackBeAlrightGreedyTouchItEverytimeNASABloodlineBadIdea

OKAY QUICK EDIT: Ariana reportedly doesn't like NASA so that would never have been a single anyway.

Posted by: Jade May 19 2019, 05:40 PM

There is still so much single potential left on the 'thank u, next' album! Namely 'bad idea', 'bloodline' and 'NASA'. Rooting for the latter, she did visit the NASA Space Centre yesterday as well so get that promo kink.gif I would of course be hyped for some new Ariana music though, she's at the top of her game right now quality-wise.

edit: wait, Ari doesn't like 'NASA'? this girl's taste in her own music is quite something :')

gimme

Posted by: dannjohn Jun 20 2019, 08:42 AM

There aren't anymore singles from TUN which is baffling because 'Needy' was a surefire hit in the making... the local would have eaten that one up... not sure how 'bloodline' or 'nasa' would have done but possible contenders.

she's apparently linked to the judy garland movie soundtrack with renee zellweger but might be bullshit from the fans.

Posted by: Jonjo Jun 23 2019, 09:14 PM

Rumoured to be called 'Complicated' and released either 28/6 or 5/7!

H Y P E

(I'm not sure how credible the source is, but still!)

Posted by: Jade Jun 23 2019, 09:17 PM

I'll take it with a pinch of salt so I don't get my hopes up but new music potentially that soon?! ahhh wub.gif

my inner Avril stan approves of that as a title also kink.gif

Posted by: JosephAvery Jun 23 2019, 10:01 PM

Omg I was not expecting anything yet but I am READY

Posted by: Jade Jun 24 2019, 06:26 AM

Oh Ariana has replied to a fan saying that the rumour isn’t real nocheer.gif

Posted by: Juliano Jun 24 2019, 10:05 AM

I should expect something late summer if anything.

Interesting

Posted by: Jade Jul 26 2019, 09:04 PM

Ariana is favouriting so many tweets including 'summer single' or 'coming in less than 10 days' omg I'm not ready!! My birthday is in 9 days so dropping a new song at around this time would be the perfect present *.*

First getting Victoria on a song and now Social House, top friend goals!

It’s called ‘u ain’t my boyfriend’

Posted by: Jade Jul 28 2019, 07:21 PM



So happy to have something confirmed and just two days before my birthday yesss!!!

A very 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored' type title but potentially more empowering subject matter. Excited to see what her and Social House have come up with!

Posted by: Juliano Jul 28 2019, 07:39 PM

Shut. Up. I can't even explain how HYPED I am.

Gonna be honest, I just couldn't get into 'break up...' and '7 rings' so I'm not gonna allow myself to get too excited about this sad.gif

I’ve seen speculation that it’s actually sampling Nivea’s song with that title. Do we have confirmation either way?

Posted by: Cqmerqn Jul 29 2019, 06:32 AM

It’s actually called ‘Boyfriend’!

The handwriting and colour palette gives me slight '1989' era vibes!

Posted by: Cqmerqn Jul 30 2019, 06:36 PM

I don’t like the artwork sad.gif

Posted by: HausofTove Jul 30 2019, 06:39 PM

I don't like the second image but I do like the first with the collab artists on it too - is that the single cover? Also is the b capitalised? Please can it be, so she can move away from the ~non caps aesthetic. Change it up!

Posted by: Jade Jul 30 2019, 06:40 PM

Yeah I think the first one is the single cover!

I like the aesthetic of the photos but am not a fan of the text over their faces. Much prefer the upside down image but probably helped by the fact it's textless!

Posted by: Jade Jul 31 2019, 07:13 PM



omg *.* this has increased my hype for the video!

Posted by: TheSnake Jul 31 2019, 07:38 PM

Oh just looked up Social House, they are a pop duo and nothing to do with house music.

Got my hopes up it was going to be a dance song sad.gif

Posted by: Jade Aug 1 2019, 04:29 PM



I’m so ready!! 😍 here for smooth R&B.

Posted by: LewisGT Aug 1 2019, 11:21 PM

So exited there’s going to be a new Ariana song when I wake in the morning. I can already tell it’s gong to be fire.

I’m listening to the new Mabel album now so I can spend all morning listening to this laugh.gif

Posted by: Jade Aug 1 2019, 11:49 PM

Yep it's going to make waking up for work bearable! Btw we have confirmation that the video will be immediately dropping as well biggrin.gif


Posted by: Andrew. Aug 2 2019, 05:28 AM

‘I’m a motherfucking trainwreck’ I do relate

So this is a bit of a bop, the chorus really reminds me of thank u, next but not as impactful.

Posted by: Andrew. Aug 2 2019, 05:31 AM



3 minutes later and I’m in love, she always does this lol

Posted by: Cqmerqn Aug 2 2019, 05:59 AM

Not completely sold on first listen!

Posted by: Jade Aug 2 2019, 06:33 AM

Hmm yeah I’m not immediately bowled over either, I do get the ‘thank u, next’ comparisons though and that was a huge grower for me so I’m hoping the same happens here.

(I do really like the bridge though, that’s my early highlight)

Posted by: blacksquare Aug 2 2019, 06:39 AM

It’s nice but I would like it a lot more if it wasn’t so similar (yet inferior) to thank u, next

Posted by: Jade Aug 2 2019, 06:51 AM

Twitter stans saying this is her best music video ever though... it’s fun but let’s not forget about ‘no tears left to cry’, ‘God is a woman’ and ‘thank u, next’ in a hurry! The shooting hearts gave me serious ‘Break Free’ video flashbacks

Posted by: .MIKE. Aug 2 2019, 07:40 AM

It’s okay.. I’m underwhelmed though, reminds me of thank u, next wayyy too much..
Wanted something fresher from her, but it’s okay

Posted by: LewisGT Aug 2 2019, 09:43 AM

I’m already loving this. I didn’t know what to expect from Social House but they sounded great and really helped alongside Ariana.

I’m not hearing the Thank U, Next comparisons though.

Posted by: gooddelta Aug 2 2019, 10:03 AM

I can hear the thank u, next comparisons, the chords sound basically the same.

However it's got a different lighter 90s R&B vibe/beat, which I'm really liking on first listen. I can see it doing really well, a throwback summery sound and pretty instant for me.

Posted by: coi Aug 2 2019, 10:19 AM

Liking the song on first listen, not so keen on the video laugh.gif Break Free was definitely better at that sort of theme.

Posted by: HausofTove Aug 2 2019, 10:26 AM

This is decent. It's nothing revolutionary and in all honesty i've realised with this release my excitement for her as an artist is sort of wavering with every release that is just... Ariana by numbers. Churning out similar sounding songs ad infinitum so frequently - give us some light and shade, some change of pace, some exciting build up idk. I'll still listen and enjoy this though don't get me wrong, but I hope the album shifts it up quite dramatically.

Posted by: Liаm Aug 2 2019, 10:57 AM

I like it but I definitely agree, I'm fed up of knowing pretty much exactly what I'll get from her! It's not identical to TUN or anything but it has too similar a vibe, it easily would have fit on that album. It's fine to have a sound as an artist, but with Dangerous Woman I really got Janet Jackson kind of vibes, taking risks but giving us great pop/R&B, this following TUN feels like a step back because it's just the same thing again. Maybe this is just a one-off single by itself though and isn't indicative of what we'll get next, fingers crossed!

Posted by: Jade Aug 2 2019, 11:03 AM

Yeah I'm pretty sure this is just a standalone summer single that she had fun making with her friends! We have the 'Charlie's Angels' soundtrack coming this year which is already a whole lot more material. Every Ariana album sounds different to the last without veering too much off track, so I hope that trend will continue with the next album too.

('Dangerous Woman' was indeed the perfect mix of variety from her wub.gif)

Posted by: Jordan Lee Aug 2 2019, 11:42 AM

I like it more than I did thank u, next on first listen tbh.

I really hope this is just a stand alone single though. I really don’t want a new album from her tbh.

We’ve had two from her in less than a year so if we’re getting yet another one anytime soon then I’m really nervous. Not because of quality just i kinda want a break from her musically. I wouldn’t want a new album from her until at least summer 2020.

This! I'm glad I'm not the only one to think this. Just let the eras breathe! It kinda stops me from fully stanning her because it seems she throws everything out at once and gets bored and moves on. It comes across to me like there's little consideration to what the fans want. She's surely aware of the adoration the likes of 'Greedy', 'Breathin'', 'NASA'/'Bloodline'/'Bad Idea' receive yet we just seem to get what she wants and the rest of us have to deal with it. I understand artistic integrity and all that but none of that matters without your fans.

I'm aware this might come across a bit hyperbole and I've no doubt Ariana does care about her fans a great deal, but that's the way it comes across to me, intentionally or not.

Posted by: NellyEverySundae Aug 2 2019, 01:08 PM

I REALLY love the song! Hated Thank U, Next and i don’t get the comparison really. Best thing since No Tears Left to cry for me.

Posted by: Jonjo Aug 2 2019, 01:09 PM

Yeah. I like it, but I'm also getting a bit bored of the "Ariana on auto-pilot" thing we're getting atm. It annoys me when Drake and Ed do the same and get massive hits out of it, so it's starting to grate on me with Ari too, which is a shame as I love her so much and didn't think I'd ever feel that way about her.

I just think it's a good song, it's just not very memorable and not something I'd return back to much.

Just give us 'Bloodline' as a single, take a good 7 months + off and come back with another pop'n'b smash and we're away.

I'm intrigued by the Charlie's Angels stuff though coz I feel it's gonna be quite a bit more pop than her recent stuff.

There's no way it's her best video! It's better than TUN for me, that one is a bit messy, but it'll take a lot to beat the God and Tears videos.

Yeah those two videos were just out of this world wub.gif

I have been looping this in the background at work for about half an hour and it's definitely starting to grow a bit more now. I do still think it peaks with the first bridge though. Looking forward to hearing it in more of a summer setting like a warm day blasting out of the car (that's how Bon Appétit clicked for me kink.gif)

Posted by: Cameron Aug 2 2019, 02:47 PM

Can she please ditch this awful distorted instrumental she seems to be loving. I also miss the songs that actually show off her vocals - 'breathin' has got to be the last one that she actually has to put effort into singing live.

Posted by: Tawdry Hepburn Aug 2 2019, 03:06 PM

I much prefer this to 'Thank U, Next'! And most of her recent stuff overall actually.

It has that early 00's R&B sound to it.

C'mon Ari, switch it up. It's getting very stale sad.gif

#1 in today's mids at 17.4k - only 400 copies ahead of 'Señorita' though. 3k ahead of 'Beautiful People' however, so #2 could be doable by the end of the week?

('thank u, next' is #24 in the albums)

There's missing streaming data there but she's doing well on both so far! She's peaked at #1 on iTunes and #3 on Spotify. Currently staying afloat at #4 on the former and #6 on the latter. Idk much about Apple Music oops but she seems to be doing fine on there too, also top 10. So a bit of an all-rounder on platforms. 30 million+ YT views so far is a decent haul as well. I'm in two minds right now, I would be here for Ariana having 6 U.K. #1s but this out-peaking 'no tears left to cry' would feel even weirder for me than any of the 'thank u, next' singles doing it laugh.gif

This thank u, thank u next rip off didn't deserve no.1 tbh! At least now it's easier for Small Talk to get to no. 1 next week

i still can't believe that wasn't number 1! and it was only released just over a year ago. feel like its a soundtrack to my life already aha.

One Kiss

Posted by: Jade Aug 5 2019, 02:43 PM

I get what you mean, this R&B/trap sound feels like its been her brand for ages but we were still getting singles like 'no tears left to cry' and 'breathin' just last year! I guess releasing two albums so close together is really unusual and makes it feel like more time has passed than it actually has. 'no tears left to cry' is one of her finest moments for sure anyway <3

That was 'One Kiss' by Calvin Harris feat. Dua Lipa aka the biggest song of the year in the U.K. drama.gif she was so unlucky!

Posted by: Jack Aug 5 2019, 04:24 PM

I was so annoyed by One Kiss being #01 over that, sorry but what a basic song compared to the majestic 'no tears left to cry', ugh.

Behind the Scenes video released


Posted by: Jade Aug 5 2019, 08:09 PM

An amusing watch due to the OTT nature of some of the scenes and Ariana being naturally funny as ever despite the severe lack of sleep! I mean not getting enough sleep at work in general is a mood for me but filming on just 1 hour of it? Blimey drama.gif

They really want the US #1!

I really want the boyfriend vinyl but the postage is so expensive eek

Posted by: Jade Aug 7 2019, 01:35 PM

This is down to #2 in the mid-weeks with 27.6k sold - Shawn & Camila have a 3.5k lead now so I think its chances are over for #1. She's only 700 copies ahead of 'Beautiful People' in 3rd also hmm. Still 4k ahead of 'I Don't Care' in 4th though so hopefully top 3 should be okay for Friday.

('thank u, next' the album has now returned to the top 20 *.*)

Posted by: coi Aug 8 2019, 12:16 PM

Now down to #4 in today's midweek update, still 3.9k clear of #5 so it looks like #4 should be its position on tomorrow's chart.

Posted by: Jade Aug 8 2019, 12:45 PM

Oh oops drama.gif didn't quite see the drop to #9 on Spotify coming yesterday. Well, top 5 would be a great result anyway. A good rebound from 'MONOPOLY'.

(the 'thank u, next' album has climbed to #18 though woop woop)

Posted by: Juliano Aug 8 2019, 01:05 PM

This sounded great on the car radio earlier! I'll be very happy with top 5 for this.

A fab result for her! 'boyfriend' becomes Ariana's 10th top 5 single in the UK *.*

#1 7 rings

#1 break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored
#1 Problem
#1 thank u, next
#2 no tears left to cry
#2 One Last Time
#4 boyfriend
#4 God is a woman

She sure loves repeating positions laugh.gif

And of her four other top 10 hits, she has three #8s laugh.gif

I am liking this a lot, it's nowhere near the highs of thank u, next but it's a nice lowkey bop to get my hyped for seeing her live in 2 weeks(!)

Posted by: Jade Aug 11 2019, 05:28 PM

Oh yes so she does laugh.gif argh just 2 weeks, hope you have an amazing time!!

This is down to #10 in the 'first look' chart btw.

Looks like it'll be lucky to even make two weeks in the top ten! Shame it's dropping so fast.

She'll be saying it was a bridge single between albums before you know it!

I'm quite content with #8.

Posted by: Jay ☆ Aug 19 2019, 04:32 PM

It's one of my least favourites from her too sad.gif I hope she switches it up with her next song, because this was a very samey sounding release.

Posted by: Mack. Aug 20 2019, 01:27 PM

Good that it did enter at #4 in the UK and going Top 10 in the US. I was underwhelmed by this from Ariana. She has done better.


Posted by: Jade Aug 21 2019, 08:01 AM

This has fallen to #19 in the US this week. Not a bad performance so far but underwhelming by Ariana's standards. '7 rings' is only 10 places lower laugh.gif

Posted by: Tawdry Hepburn Aug 21 2019, 08:42 AM

It's really underperformed.

Much as I do quite like this, I can kind of see why. She is in danger of just doing the same thing over and over again at this point.

i do think she's gotten a bit complacent

Posted by: Jade Aug 23 2019, 04:07 PM

Ooh 'boyfriend' dropped to #13 in the UK today, a smaller fall than I was expecting! I guess it did make small climbs this week on Spotify.

UK chart-run so far: 4-11-13

Good to see it stabilising after the week 2 dive.

Posted by: Juliano Aug 23 2019, 04:34 PM

That's good news then, but yes, I'd say complacent was the correct word.

Posted by: Jade Aug 25 2019, 05:13 PM

Down to #17 in the first look chart. 'boyfriend' ended up charting two places higher than the first look position suggested last week, so I hope a similar situation happens this week so it can spend another week in the top 15!

Posted by: TheJüpreme Aug 25 2019, 05:35 PM

It is similar to TUN but I VASTLY prefer this. The former doesn't go anywhere & overly relies on its expensive video whereas this at least has a wee chorus to it. TUN's chorus sounds like the kind of ringtone that comes by default on a shitty phone.

Posted by: Jade Aug 26 2019, 04:59 PM

The exact same trend is happening in the US for this! Big second week drop and then stabilising in the third week. Down just one place: 8-18-19

Posted by: Jade Aug 30 2019, 04:12 PM

This has spent a fourth week in the UK top 20! So close to top 15, aw.

4-11-13-16

Also, for those of you who didn’t catch the VMAs thread, this won ‘song of the summer’!

Posted by: Juliano Aug 31 2019, 11:06 AM

Yeh that was very unexpected, but then there was that year when Flex by 5H won, so anything is possible. laugh.gif

Great to still see this in the top 20 in the UK anyway.

Posted by: Jade Sep 1 2019, 05:16 PM

At least it's not as questionable as 'Hot Girl Summer' winning a Video Music Award when it doesn't have a video rotf.gif

This is at #16 in the first-look chart today, continuing that stability!

Posted by: Jonjo Sep 1 2019, 07:19 PM

I'm honestly over this now and I'm so pissed off about it. I shouldn't be over an Ari song this quick!! </3 but I guess it is very "done by her before but much better".

I still really like this!

I’m still into this, but it is only just still clinging on in my personal chart. Says a lot that ‘in my head’ is higher laugh.gif I hope there’s a lot of truth in Lana saying that ‘Angel’ will be with us in a couple of weeks, as I sense that’ll probably be around the time that I’m ready to move on, as we move out of the summer.

^ Fantastic! The initial drop was worrying but its chart run has been healthy ever since week 2.

Posted by: Jade Oct 7 2019, 08:01 PM

Completely forgot about ACR - 'boyfriend' is on ACR this week so that'll be it for its top 40 run. I wonder if 'Don't Call Me Angel' can have similar longevity here?

Posted by: Bloodjerdling Oct 22 2019, 03:18 PM

This has made it on Now 104 as track #11! Ariana often gets double appearances, so I wondered if 'Don't Call Me Angel' would make it too, but not quite.

Posted by: Jade Nov 23 2019, 08:16 PM

Yeah 'boyfriend' is decent enough but she can do a lot better! Imagine if she won with this, then it'd already have two awards to its name (along with 'song of the summer' at the VMAs) - a bit random laugh.gif I'm not sure how likely that is though.
