Ariana Grande has released her fifth studio album, Thank U, Next. The internet has fallen in love with it as expected. Grande spent some time on Twitter answering fan questions and thanking them for their support. 

She's teased the album on her social media, and the song "Thank U, Next" has topped the charts for weeks. Everything having to do with this album has been so successful, there was no doubt the album would blow up. Reactions on Twitter are pretty much saying what we have all been feeling: This album is lit.

Ariana Grande just released her latest and arguably highest anticipated album, Thank U, Next.

On February 8, Grande released her anticipated album Thank U, Next. It immediately skyrocketed to the number one spot on iTunes.

Grande also released a new music video for "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored."

Shortly after revealing that "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" would be the next single from her album, Grande released the music video for it alongside the album. The video shows her noticing her ex, Riverdale star Charles Melton, in a club with a new girlfriend.

Twitter fell in love with the album immediately.

Many of them even called it a "masterpiece." One fan called her "the perfect example of artistic growth."

But there were some major technical difficulties.

Grande was supposed to release the album across platforms at 12 a.m. Fans lost their minds when the album came late to certain streaming services.

The album showed up on Spotify well before it was even on iTunes, causing upset among iTunes customers.

Some Apple users were a little concerned when they didn't see the album on iTunes on time. Spotify users got access to Thank U, Next before anyone else.

Nevertheless, the memes persisted.

In the "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" video, it looks like Grande is about to kiss her ex's new girl. We never actually see the two kiss, although it is important to mention that the new girlfriend is almost a carbon copy of Grande. Imagine how awkward it must be to see your ex with someone who looks EXACTLY like you.

Grande spent hours after the album's release responding to fans.

immediately following the album's release, Grande stayed on Twitter to respond to fans about the album for hours. She said that for now, her favorite songs from Thank U, Next are "Fake Smile" and "Make Up."

Most of the songs from the album were written in an hour or less, according to Grande.

Grande responded to a fan who asked her what song took the longest to write. She said "Ghostin" took her the longest to write, because she had to take breaks. But the other sounds took about an hour to write. 

And she said "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" was a "funny" way to end the album.

Another fan asked her why she put the song (with such a long name, honestly) on the album. She looks at the song as a "punchline" to such a "vulnerable" album. 

"Ghostin" took her the longest to write, so it makes sense that it's not a song she's looking to perform live. 

Grande previously said "Ghostin" was about ghosting your significant other because you would rather be with someone else. So when it comes to performing live, she's not looking forward to that particular song — probably due to its alleged connection to the death of Mac Miller. 

Did we mention that Drag Race veteran Shangela is on the album? Because she is.

Drag superstar Shangela is featured on Thank U, Next! She visited the studio with Grande's brother, Frankie. When Grande asked her to be on the album, things just worked out

Which song was the most fun to produce? It's a toss-up, Grande said.

When a fan asked which songs she had the most fun making, Grande couldn't pick just one. She said it was a tie between "7 Rings" and "NASA."

We'd be remiss not to mention the Fenty Beauty name-drop in "Make Up," to which the brand lovingly responded.

Even Fenty Beauty had to get in on the hype. In the song "Make Up," Grande sings:

Promise me that when you kiss my lips, you'll make it stick/ That’s the way to shut me up after an argument/ No eyeliner on, but looking at you is the fix/ Highlight of my life, just like that Fenty Beauty kit.

The brand's Twitter account tweeted "issa bop."

Given how much success Grande's latest singles have had, we're not shocked at all that this album has become iconic.

The song "Thank U, Next" spent weeks on the top of the charts and made the internet so much more grateful to its previous baes. The music video has been viewed almost 300 million times. We stan a chart-topping pop diva.
