Decoding the Messages Behind Ariana Grande’s ‘Yes, And?’ Lyrics

Ariana Grande is officially back in our lives with new music thus the world must be healing, right? ‘Yes, and?’ dropped on Friday 12th January with a music video to go with it and it’s safe to say the bop filled the Ari void.

Her seventh album, believed to be called ‘Eternal Sunshine’ is expected to be released later this year, and ‘yes, and?’ has really set the tone for what we can expect from Ariana in 2024 – a fun pop dance tune seemingly inspired by the likes of Madonna.

Ariana’s new song ‘Yes, and?’ and its lyrics are all about brushing off people’s opinions and having fun in the club. The IDGAF vibes are strong following her split from husband Dalton Gomez and her new relationship with Wicked co-star Ethan Slater.

The meaning of Ariana Grande’s new song ‘yes, and?’

Ariana’s ‘yes, and?’ lyrics are all about letting go of whatever’s going on around you, putting on some lipstick – she has been wearing a frequent red lip these days – and owning what you’re going through.

She opens the song with: “In case you haven’t noticed / well everybody’s tired / and healing from somebody / or something we don’t see just right,” which might just hint at how she’s moving on from her relationship with ex-husband Dalton.

She declares she doesn’t care about other people’s opinions, and rightly so.

Ari sings: “Now, I’m so done with caring / What you think, no, I won’t hide / underneath your own projections / or change my most authentic life.”

The chorus is all about telling the critics, ‘yes, and?’ and being your own biggest cheerleader: “Be your own f****n best friend / say that s**t with your chest / keep moving like, ‘what’s next?’”

Perhaps one of the most pointed lyrics is, “Why do you care so much whose **** I ride?” which could be in response to the backlash she received when it was revealed she was dating her Wicked cast mate Ethan Slater months after her split from Dalton.

In case you haven’t noticed

Well, everybody’s tired

And healin’ from somebody
