Ariana Grande Gets Raw on Divorce Album 'Eternal Sunshine

Ariana Grande dives headfirst into the emotional turmoil of divorce on her latest album, "Eternal Sunshine."  Shedding her usual bubblegum pop persona, Grande emerges with a more mature sound, reflecting on the complexities of love and loss.

The opening track, "No More Tears," sets the melancholic tone. Soft piano chords underlie Grande's vocals, heavy with a weariness that belies their youthful sweetness. Lyrics like "Used to dream in technicolor, now it's all in shades of gray" paint a vivid picture of a love that has faded.

As the album progresses, anger flickers beneath the surface of the heartbreak.  "Fake Smile" pulsates with a dark energy, its throbbing beat mirroring a heart teetering on the edge.  Grande throws off pretense, singing, "Don't need your sunshine / I'll make my own kind of light."

There are moments of vulnerability too.  "Empty" is a stripped-down ballad that lays bare the raw ache of loneliness.  Grande's voice cracks as she sings, "This queen-size bed feels like an ocean / And I'm just a shipwreck lost at sea."

Yet, amidst the sorrow, glimmers of hope emerge.  "Better Days" shimmers with a fragile optimism.  The song's gentle melody speaks of a future where the sun peeks through the clouds once more.  Grande acknowledges the pain, but finds strength in resilience: "Gonna take a while to heal / But I won't let the scars conceal / The fire burning still inside of me."
