Couldn't it be just one of the song titles?

Personally, I think it's a smart move to not release it as a single or promo. If it was, it would be strongly overshadowed by thank you, next, and flop.

The vocals on "Imagine" are terrific, but I'm not sold on the song on the first listen. It's Ari, though, so it'll probably be a grower.

Cute song, definitely not single material, though.

Imagine is super cute. Better than some Sweetener album tracks.

Compared to the Sweetener singles it falls completely flat though.

:lol:

As for the single itself, it didn't grab me with the first listen. That pre-chorus is cute and the bridge is terrific, but I think this will have to grow on me.

Drake and Kanye got into it over twitter last night, and she used it to promote her song. Queen.

Oh, I completely missed it! Thanks for the explanation and providing a link.

Ariana + Miley <3 (sadly, I don't like "Imagine" or "War Is Over" the same way I love their previous singles)

I agree. But it's good to know they won't be promoted as proper singles, so I'm fine with this.

"Imagine" is cute.

It's slaying on iTunes btw 8-)

Ariana can release everything now and it would be smashing. - Maybe she should re-release "Focus" :D

I guess, I won't buy "Imagine", though, I will wait for proper news regarding their album.

Focus did pretty well overall, so no need to re-release tbh a top 10 in many markers including UK and US :)

It’s a misfire for me. Lyrically it kind of undermines Thank U Next, is her relationship with Ari over already?
