After releasing her incredible album "Sweetener" just a couple of months ago, Ariana Grande suddenly dropped her new song "thank u, next" out of nowhere recently - and now she's performed it for the first time ever on Ellen.
Grande chose to channel the classic musical number from "The First Wives Club", wearing bridal white alongside her two backup singers to resemble the film's stars Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Dianne Keaton. The scenery on stage matched the set for the "You Don't Own Me" scene in the movie.

Grande, however, wanted to ensure her listeners and followers that "thank u, next" was not meant to be a clap-back or revenge song.
Earlier in the routine, Ariana brilliantly recovered when she stumbled, quickly declaring "oh my god", before brushing off the incident and carrying on.

She moved into more emotional territory as the song progressed, holding back tears while singing about her future wedding day.
"This one gon" last / "Cause her name is Ari / And I'm so good with that", she sang without missing a note, adding a self-deprecating chuckle.
The tracks included Cadillac and Champagne, thought to be versions of Ariana's previously unreleased songs.
A collection of songs called Nobody Does It Better popped up on sites, including Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play, with the bio reading: "Right now I'm in a state of mind, I wanna be in like all the time" in Grande's signature upside-down-letter style. "She's a wonderful, strong person and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world".
