Jezebel posted this really quick, dismissive review of Ariana Grande’s new song, saying the lyrics are hard to understand. I get that Grande doesn’t always enunciate well when she sings, but had they done any research, like I did, they would know that the song was made by Max Martin (not Pharrell), and the song is about moving on with optimism after adversity, particularly the Manchester bombing at her concert last year. The song’s beats are early 90’s house throwbacks that I recognized, and Pitchfork said it was “UK garage-inspired,” a nod to Manchester’s famous club scene of the 80’s and 90’s.

So basically, the song has a lot of depth behind its creation and background, but they are all like “I can’t understand the words!” It’s just obnoxious how the writers are getting corporate pay for such terrible music writing.
