Ariana Grande believes her new song “Problem” appeals to both guys and gals.
Although women who have experienced their fair share of trouble with the fellas have no doubt embraced the lyrical content of Grande’s latest release, the singer doesn’t think the tune is gender specific. In fact, anyone who has faced adversity in the world of romance can openly embrace the song’s message.
During a chat with Entertainment Weekly, Ariana discussed the single’s mass appeal. In her humble opinion, girls aren’t the only people on the planet who can draw strength from the tune. In short: Guys who secretly purchased “Problem” shouldn’t hide the fact from the rest of the world.
“Everybody has trouble with confidence these days. All these young girls hate themselves, and these women have horrible relationships with men. And men too! We all go through it. ‘Problem’ is such an IDGAF song that makes everybody feel great,” Grande told the publication.
If you’re scratching your head over that acronym, then we’ll save you the trouble of typing those letters into Google. IDGAF stands for “I don’t give a f**k,” though you’ll have to use your skills in cryptology to unmask the last word in that phrase.
Fans who are expecting Ariana Grande’s new album to sound like “Problem” from front to back are in for a bit of a shocker. The singer also told EW that it isn’t a purely uptempo record. Although she didn’t say what sort of sound her supporters should expect, Grande believes they’ll love what they hear.
“I think everybody is going to be shocked. I tried so many new things. I feel like I reinvented without doing anything that’s not genuine to who I am as a person,” she explained.
If nothing else, at least her sophomore effort is a much more positive experience than her very first pop-oriented effort. The Inquisitr previously reported that her debut single “Put Your Hearts Up” wasn’t exactly her cup of musical tea.
“It was geared toward kids and felt so inauthentic and fake. That was the worst moment of my life. For the video, they gave me a bad spray tan and put me in a princess dress and had me frolic around the street. The whole thing was straight out of hell. I still have nightmares about it, and I made them hide it on my Vevo page,” she explained.
Unfortunately, it’s still unclear when Ariana Grande will drop the record in our laps. However, “Problem” featuring Iggy Azalea is available for download now.
