Ariana Grande has been named Billboard’s Woman of the Year and she has a lot to be thankful for in her exclusive cover shoot for the magazine.
One of these is her latest single, which now charts number 1 on Billboard, ‘Thank U, Next’, noting that she loved the song more than any of her other songs.
“It’s a Tommy Brown single!” she exclaims, hitting the arm of her chair for emphasis. Brown, a producer and songwriter, has been working with Grande since her 2013 debut, Yours Truly, and Grande is positively giddy at the prospect of their shared musical breakthrough. “I can’t believe it but, like, so can. It’s me and my besties tipsy off champagne — and me with a broken heart — just letting it out and having fun. I love this more than any other song I’ve ever put out.”
But in the face of her controversial romantic life this year, the 25-year-old singer says “I’m really lucky and really unlucky at the same time,”.
Not long after Miller’s death, Grande started spending all of her time with her closest friends and collaborators, including Brown, recording a new album (which she says will also be called Thank U, Next) at a studio across the street from her New York apartment. She says the best therapy for her is behind a mic.
