      • Ariana is a true talented vocal queen. But at the rate she releases albums, her own singles and featured singles, she is losing her substance as a legendary artist. She needs to stop with being a "quick charting" artist. Her vocal ability hasnt been introduced in years. She has that quality voice with the likes of legends like Whitney, Mariah, Celine etc. These woman did not lend their vocals as easily as Ariana and thats what kept the thirst.

        She needs to pause!!!

        • I disagree, times have changed. Unless you're Adele, long breaks usually mean flop these days. Rihanna also built her career by releasing new album every year for some time. Ariana isn't there yet so she's doing the right thing by releasing new music very often.

            Coming off two of her biggest eras so far, string of first ever #1's, her biggest tour ever, one of the biggest streamed albums in history so far... That's losing substance as legendary artist? Ummmm, OK.

            Box a girl based on what kind of a voice she has and don't let her do her own thing. That's progress right there.

              This. Also the focus isn't on vocalists these days. She's doing the exact thing that a commercial act in 2019 should do.

                • How is she losing her legacy as a top artist with non-stop releases? What she's doing is something that older artists from the 1960s and 1970s used to do. Even Diana Ross released music less than 6 months and then released a soundtrack, etc. The problem though is that her image and sound are starting to be be interchangeable with the kind of talk-singing songs she is constantly releasing recently.

                  To be fair, she is very friendly with accepting collaborations even with those who are far from her calibre as a top act. She's no Beyoncé or Mariah who looks at what is there to gain either chartwise and acclaimwise in collaborating with that artist. It looks random because the songs aren't good ("Monopoly" and "Boyfriend" aren't really great songs) but she does it because she likes to collaborate.

                    Why is that a problem though? She is still in the same era technically, that began last year on April 20th (so we're at 1 year and 4 months) where those kind of songs fit into the sonic sound of the era. It would've been weird if she suddenly went bubblegum pop with these random single releases. And even if she keeps this style for her next era, so what?

                    • Okay, so Wednesday I'll be seeing Ariana live in Amsterdam. One site mentions it starts at 6:30. The ticket says it starts at 7:30. Anyone knows what time she'll probably start?

                        I saw her in Vienna. Was supposed to start at 21:30, but on the day of the concert they put up on Facebook that it will start at 20:30. She also cut boyfriend from the setlist. It's quite possible she decided to do all show earlier so she doesn't have to wait backstage a lot. She also canceled all meet and greet's in Europe.

                          She is releasing the millennial sound of bubblegum pop right now. Songs like "thank u, next" are no different from Justin Bieber's "Baby" from 10 years ago. In my opinion, she became even more manufactured with her sound but it helped her increase her profile which is always the way to go. It's not bad since Scooter's goal for her is to make her the most important streaming artist ever. What sets her apart from her peers and even from older female artists is she is the vocally the leader in the pop game.

                          • Current bubblegum pop? I don't see many other pop girls blending pop, r'n'b and trap right now. So... Thank u, next.

                                  • Everything seemed half baked production wise, the only thing good were her vocals.

                                    But what I found disappointing the most is that she didn't seem to connect or want to connect with the audience (a bit weird considering her "my fans" outbursts she has from time to time) and felt like a robot saying Vienna every couple of songs. A bit of charm and spontaneity can overcome all the production faults, but alas...

                                        • I don't think she will top Thank U, Next as the best song of her career. I don't think there has been any song like that, it is incredibly fresh and personal. This song is a true stamp in her legacy, and kind of defined her new sound. Breathin is probably the second best thing she's done.

                                            Reviews for her concert here all pointed this out too, that she didn't seem to connect at all.

                                              Touch It is the best song in her career (I would say so far, but I think it's going to remain that way) tbh. It's just too bad it was never released as a single, thus dooming it to forever remain unknown to anyone who isn't a die-hard fan.

                                                  • ^ Aw, so sad to hear that. I hope you'll get better soon!

                                                    So I always put together a playlist in my library that goes with the setlist when I plan to visit a concert. No idea why I'm doing that but it just became a thing. So I put together the setlist for Ariana as a playlist yesterday & am listening to it right now and it made me realize how many fantastic hits she actually already released!

                                                    So I'm getting super stoked for her upcoming concert (two weeks to go!) but reading the reviews I fear I'll end up being disappointed

                                                    edit: Oh, only realized just now that she's not performing "One Last Time". I mean, I get why it's not on the setlist... but I would have loved to hear it live
