Thank U, Next (stylized in all lowercase) is the fifth studio album by American singer Ariana Grande, released on February 8, 2019, by Republic Records. Following the release of her previous studio album Sweetener (2018), Grande began working on a new album in October of the same year, enlisting writers and producers such as Tommy Brown, Max Martin, Ilya Salmanzadeh and Andrew "Pop" Wansel. The album was created in the midst of personal matters, including the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller and her break-up with fiancé Pete Davidson. The album was preceded by two singles, the title track and "7 Rings", both debuting atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming Grande's first and second number one single in the US, respectively. "Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" was released as the third single on the day of the album's release, peaking at number two on the Hot 100. In support of both Sweetener and Thank U, Next, Grande embarked on the Sweetener World Tour, beginning on March 18, 2019. Commercially, the album peaked atop the charts of many countries, including Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States. Two months after its release, the album was certified platinum by Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), for moving one million album-equivalent units in the US. The album has also broken multiple records on streaming services. Upon its release, Thank U, Next received widespread acclaim from music critics, with many praising its cohesiveness and production. It was nominated for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards while its second single, "7 Rings", was nominated for Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. Thank U, Next was also ranked in several year-end and decade-end best music lists. .
