The God is a woman hit maker kicked off her 2019 on a powerful note, following a morbid year in which she split from Pete Davidson and dealt with the sudden death of ex-lover Mac Miller – but that’s all behind her and Ariana has now got her attention fixated on better horizons. 

“Been through some bad s—/I should be a sad bitch/Who would’ve thought it’d turn me to a savage/Rather be tied up with gauze and not strings/Write my own checks like I write what I sing,” sings Ariana acknowledging her drama filled year. 

In the female empowerment anthem, which is inspired by “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music, the 25-year-old singer previously revealed in a tweet that the song was dedicated to her best friends.
