"Wait does Ariana say “you keep me in your armpit” at the beginning of Better Off?"
It's here, it's finally here! Ariana Grande's fourth studio album Sweetener has finally dropped and fans are absolutely loving it. From mental health bops and raunchy lyrics to the heartfelt tribute to the 22 lives lost in the Manchester attack at the end of the album, there is truly something that will resonate with everyone on Sweetener.
Early favourites are emerging amongst the fans on Twitter and one of the front-runners is a track called 'Better Off', which is a bittersweet ballad that appears to reference the break down of the "toxic" relationship between Ariana and ex-boyfriend Mac Miller.
Everyone is relating to the deep lyrics to the song but there's one misheard lyric right at the start and once you hear it, you will literally never be able to un-hear it. The actual opening lyrics to Better Off are "you keep me in your orbit," but Ariana's pronunciation of the word makes it sound like something completely different...

listen I KNOW ariana is saying “you keep me in your orbit” in better off but it REALLY sounds like she’s saying “you keep me in your armpit”— gracie (@vanillahalsey) August 17, 2018
It's not just those hilarious misheard lyrics that people can't stop talking about though, the entire message of the song has got people in their feelings. Better Off is really out here making us get over men we never even dated, guiding us to let go of toxic guys and helping realising our own damn self-worth.

"I'd rather your body than half of your heart," Grande, A. 2018.
She did that. She really did that.
She went from "just a little bit of your heart" to "I'd rather your body than half of your heart" ➡I C O N I C⬅— Be Kind🦋 (@GomezInMalibu) August 17, 2018
