Ariana Grande snapped on her thank u, next album and the memes are iconic...
Ariana Grande never fails us. Over the course of the past six years, the 25-year-old pop star has consistently outdone herself as an artist and released some of the best music in recent memory. 'The Way' was a flawless debut, 'Problem' was a game-changing banger, 'Dangerous Woman' was a vocal masterpiece, 'no tears left to cry' was a triumphant moment and 'thank u, next' rewrote the rules of pop.
Ariana Grande fans are living for the twist in the 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored' video
Today (Feb 6), Ariana dropped her fifth studio album thank u, next and it is remarkable. Not only does it feature some of Ari's biggest bops to date ('bloodline', 'break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored') but it also contains some of her most honest and raw music yet ('ghostin', 'fake smile'). The album has already topped iTunes charts all around the world and is so loved that it's inspired many memes.
Check out the funniest 'thank u, next' memes below.
From emotional reactions to the album's standout tracks (there isn't a weak link) to hilarious lyrical analyses (Ariana the poet jumped out), the Number 1 album is made for viral content and the memes are just as iconic as the record itself. With that in mind we have scoured the internet far and wide and gathered together just a few of the funniest thank u, next memes all in one place.
