I’ve seen so many reviews hating on this beautiful work of art that Ariana has created. No, it is not thank u, next. Not every album can have the type of emotion she poured into those records. Don’t get me wrong, AG5 was iconic. It was a very therapeutic time but now it is time to move on. This new album needs to be appreciated for what it is. She’s dabbling with different sounds and discovering exactly what her voice is capable of. She feels comfortable in the r&b genre right now so let her have her moment??? Do they all sound similar? Of course. They were intended to in order to give the album a cohesive sound. I understand that it is not for everyone, but to say positions is pure garbage and Ari herself is going downhill is so negative. Her voice is just as amazing as it was in the beginning of her career. Noticing all of the comments simply dragging her down when she works so hard to release music for not only her own happiness but ours as well.. it’s disappointing to say the least. Positions shows GROWTH. She’s gone through so many traumatic experiences and this album truly shows how much she has healed. And if you can’t see that, then refer to track 1. Goodbye.
This is her best album. Real fans know she always wanted to do rnb; she actually started with rnb with Babyface producing “Yours Truly”. The bad reviews and hate are from her pop fans who only listen to DW and don’t understand RnB music.
everyone’s giving this a 1star or bad review bc she stepped out of her usual poppy sound?? it’s good regardless and i’m glad we get to see something different from her. ariana this is great. and people think about what you’re saying, i mean you can have your own opinion but when you’re being just absolutely rude it doesn’t even matter. she’s probably worked on this project for a long time. be better everyone.
What can I say. It is adequate. This isn’t her best work. Hardly her best effort. It is good. However, It lacks the theme that thank u, next had. Like I said, it is good...... Ariana I capable of more than singing along to a little R&B tune. She has major pipes. Sing it loud!!!
I love Ariana, and obviously she can sing. Her voice sounds beautiful (as always), but these songs are repitive, and I can't understand her at times. It kinda sounds like she just threw in a bunch of songs about love/sex and called it an album. I'm glad she's finally getting married, but I was really looking for something fresh, and way more creative. I wanted her to write songs with deeper meanings. I mean 2020 provided artists with so much content to write about. I was so hyped for this new album, but it did not live up to my expectations. I miss her signature belts like in Dangerous Woman. I have no doubt that she'll kill it on the next one
Ariana is literally my idol but this album is just terrible the only listenable songs is just like magic , safety net , nasty , positions and POV Shut up is legit the most trash worst song I’ve ever heard. I’m so disappointed because I thought she was going to literally snap with this album because thank u next was literally a perfect pop album. I’m hoping Ariana will give her fans what they want the next album
When I first listened to it, it did kind of blend together & sound the same. However, after going back to it, different tracks stand out to me each time I listen. It has aged like fine wine. The use of strings on this album is reminiscent to roots. The jazzy songs like my hair & love language blow me away without fail. The vulnerable ballad, POV, was the perfect closing track.
So, I’m going to give this 2 stars because I thought it could have been way better. The only good songs were ‘positions’, ‘off the table’, and ‘motive’. This definitely wasn’t her best, but I can’t wait for more of her music!
I wasn’t expecting that much about it because I didn’t wanted my high hopes to disappoint me...and yet, it disappointed me. I love Ariana but I hope this doesn’t happen again. I liked some songs but that’s it, i have not bought them cuz...it’s not that desperate. Most songs sounded the same. I recommend her to just rest, refresh and come back again. Take the time you need, sweetie😊 XOXO
Positions is nothing like any of Ariana’s albums. it’s a fresh and different album, really demonstrating how wide ariana’s range can be. these songs are nothing like what she has made before giving us new beats and genres to which she further explores in. People who don’t like it don’t understand how important it is for artists to explore out of the box. this album has flavor and brilliance written all over it which only takes those with good critique and open mind to understand. overall, 5/5 for Positions
Seeing a new side of Grande. She’s sexy and sultry on this piece but she’s also vulnerable. Key tracks to check out: just like magic, my hair, nasty, & pov. Grande has made much progress in her career and I’m excited to see where she’ll go from here.
The only song I skip is ,6:30, the rest I can’t get over, I keep this on repeat and blasted in my car. I just don’t get these negative comments.Ari is doing her thang and I’m here for it. 2 thumbs way up for me.
this album is exactly the album that she needed to release!! i love her and this album so much! she experimented with other sounds, and made some of her most personal work yet. songs like “safety net” and “pov” are so real and relatable to everybody. the features she picked for the album make it fun, personal, and beautiful. all of the songs flow so well into each other & the theme of the orchestra in the instrumentals make the album that much more cohesive.
