It’s a new year, that means a new album for popstar, Ariana Grande. She came to save 2020 with her new album, Positions! On the album, Ariana explores themes of love, sex, trust, and falling in love. She takes listeners on the journey of hesitantly falling in love after previously being hurt by it, as well as expressing her sexual needs and desires with vivid imagery and metaphors that leaves fans begging for more. The album features collaborations with Doja Cat, The Weeknd, and Ty Dolla $ign.

In songs such as “Positions” and “34+35,” Grande illustrates her sexual desires with her significant other. In “34+35,” she sings, “Said, boy, I’m tryna meet your mama on a Sunday // Then make a lotta love on a Monday,” showing the duality of her desires for both a serious relationship, and a relationship that’s fun.
However, Grande’s album is not all sexual; she shows her tender vulnerable side as well in songs such as “My Hair” and “Obvious.” In “My Hair,” she lets her hair down and encourages her partner to touch it, “But I might let it down for ya // This ain’t usually me (Usually me).” As Grande is known for her iconic high pony tail, the lyric is a clever nod to her signature look, and cues the listener in to the fact that her lover will be getting a glimpse at a side of her that most people won’t see.

With the release of Positions, Grande has become the first artist to have five Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 debuts, all before the age of 30. Pretty impressive.
