I’m not sure what all the fuss is about, but I found this album fantastic. It’s much more toned down than her usual pop style and is heavily R&B, and I love that. Everybody wants every album to be a Thank U, Next / Dangerous Woman type of album which is a silly notion to expect from any artist. Keep it up Ariana!
we can’t deny it that tun, sweetener and dw was the past, positions is ari’s new life, positions is herself now. ari has been growing. as fans of her, we just need to support her.... that’s all :]
She’s one of my favorite singers by far has one of the best voices out there but all the songs sound the same and don’t show case her voice to the best of her abilities. I wanna hear her belt it out! I don’t think it’s a bad album at all, personally there’s just not one song that I’m into.
I’m disappointed by this like a lot it’s uncomfortable to listen to the album Take me back to the dangerous women era. I have faith that she will write better songs, I know I will feel my arianator turn back on soon she just needs to take her time to really think about her songs. Ily Ari and I’m proud of your success over the years and will forever be your fan! <3
I’ve only heard a few songs but I love them. I’ve heard positions, motive, pov, 34+35, and shut up. But I love them. About motive: I personally do not like Doja cat, but I love motive. About positions: it’s really great I love it! About pov: it's cool my friend recommended it to me and I love it. About shut up: it’s really good and it sounds like something I would say to my sister. About 34+35: it’s ok but kinda, I mean VERY sexual but I kinda like it. UR DA BESTTTT Stay safe and don’t get COVID, The queen of all kangaroos aka I LUV ARI Ps: do you know who Selena Quintanilla is?
I love Ariana wholeheartedly, but this album is definitely different to the others. She took a more explicit approach to the album which is totally fine! I have no problem with that, but the songs are definitely a little boring, take Positions it’s has an acoustic vibe to it and everything; but it’s just not catchy at all. Take her other albums such as Sweetener and Thank u, next it’s just easier to sing along to and has a good melody and good lyrics. Positions not as catchy and cool at least on my opinion. I was definitely a little disappointed when I listened to the last songs a few were very memorable and a few, not so much. I did enjoy love language, my hair, pov, motive, and safety net. The rest are not my kind of songs to listen to. A lot of people have been giving Ariana 5 stars just because it’s made by Ariana, I’d be pretty confident in the fact that if a different artist sang this album, the reviews would be different. But that’s all maybe this will grow on me but for now I don’t like it very much but the 34+35 remix with Doja Cat and Megan The Stallion saved the whole song for me. I love Ariana but this doesn’t work for me.
i have been a fan of ariana for nearly 10 years and i have loved everything she puts out. but this is something else. i like it, some of the songs are catchy, but most of the lyrics are garbage and the cussing is too much. i know that she has gotten older and she will grow and experiment styles and stuff but this? this isnt growth. its a downgrade from all her other stuff. the best song on here is pov. sure, 34+35 and nasty, etc. are catchy, but the lyrics are so bad. its sad because ive been a huge fan and especially after the 34+35 remix im almost disgusted with what she has become. every other song now is about s*x and money and crap like that.. i want to love this but its hard to get past all these things. i hope her next album is better and more meaningful. this is not it. im sorry. this isnt hate its disappointment.
I’ve seen so many reviews hating on this beautiful work of art that Ariana has created. No, it is not thank u, next. Not every album can have the type of emotion she poured into those records. Don’t get me wrong, AG5 was iconic. It was a very therapeutic time but now it is time to move on. This new album needs to be appreciated for what it is. She’s dabbling with different sounds and discovering exactly what her voice is capable of. She feels comfortable in the r&b genre right now so let her have her moment??? Do they all sound similar? Of course. They were intended to in order to give the album a cohesive sound. I understand that it is not for everyone, but to say positions is pure garbage and Ari herself is going downhill is so negative. Her voice is just as amazing as it was in the beginning of her career. Noticing all of the comments simply dragging her down when she works so hard to release music for not only her own happiness but ours as well.. it’s disappointing to say the least. Positions shows GROWTH. She’s gone through so many traumatic experiences and this album truly shows how much she has healed. And if you can’t see that, then refer to track 1. Goodbye.
This is her best album. Real fans know she always wanted to do rnb; she actually started with rnb with Babyface producing “Yours Truly”. The bad reviews and hate are from her pop fans who only listen to DW and don’t understand RnB music.
everyone’s giving this a 1star or bad review bc she stepped out of her usual poppy sound?? it’s good regardless and i’m glad we get to see something different from her. ariana this is great. and people think about what you’re saying, i mean you can have your own opinion but when you’re being just absolutely rude it doesn’t even matter. she’s probably worked on this project for a long time. be better everyone.
What can I say. It is adequate. This isn’t her best work. Hardly her best effort. It is good. However, It lacks the theme that thank u, next had. Like I said, it is good...... Ariana I capable of more than singing along to a little R&B tune. She has major pipes. Sing it loud!!!
I love Ariana, and obviously she can sing. Her voice sounds beautiful (as always), but these songs are repitive, and I can't understand her at times. It kinda sounds like she just threw in a bunch of songs about love/sex and called it an album. I'm glad she's finally getting married, but I was really looking for something fresh, and way more creative. I wanted her to write songs with deeper meanings. I mean 2020 provided artists with so much content to write about. I was so hyped for this new album, but it did not live up to my expectations. I miss her signature belts like in Dangerous Woman. I have no doubt that she'll kill it on the next one
Ariana is literally my idol but this album is just terrible the only listenable songs is just like magic , safety net , nasty , positions and POV Shut up is legit the most trash worst song I’ve ever heard. I’m so disappointed because I thought she was going to literally snap with this album because thank u next was literally a perfect pop album. I’m hoping Ariana will give her fans what they want the next album
When I first listened to it, it did kind of blend together & sound the same. However, after going back to it, different tracks stand out to me each time I listen. It has aged like fine wine. The use of strings on this album is reminiscent to roots. The jazzy songs like my hair & love language blow me away without fail. The vulnerable ballad, POV, was the perfect closing track.
So, I’m going to give this 2 stars because I thought it could have been way better. The only good songs were ‘positions’, ‘off the table’, and ‘motive’. This definitely wasn’t her best, but I can’t wait for more of her music!
I wasn’t expecting that much about it because I didn’t wanted my high hopes to disappoint me...and yet, it disappointed me. I love Ariana but I hope this doesn’t happen again. I liked some songs but that’s it, i have not bought them cuz...it’s not that desperate. Most songs sounded the same. I recommend her to just rest, refresh and come back again. Take the time you need, sweetie😊 XOXO
Positions is nothing like any of Ariana’s albums. it’s a fresh and different album, really demonstrating how wide ariana’s range can be. these songs are nothing like what she has made before giving us new beats and genres to which she further explores in. People who don’t like it don’t understand how important it is for artists to explore out of the box. this album has flavor and brilliance written all over it which only takes those with good critique and open mind to understand. overall, 5/5 for Positions
