We ranked every Ariana Grande album so you don't have to

Ever since 2013, Ariana Grande has been blessing our ears with some of the most emotional, catchy and empowering songs... but which of her albums is the best? Well, we ranked every Ariana album so you don't have to. Press play on your fave Ari bop and keep reading for more!

5. Yours Truly

Sorry Yours Truly fans, this album takes the last spot in our ranking. Ariana had just stepped into the singing game after giving us a glimpse at her talent on the hit Nickelodeon show Victorious. The tracks don't feel as meaningful as some of Ariana's later songs. Don't worry Ari, your debut album led to better things!

4. Dangerous Woman

Dangerous Woman is the only album that didn't reach #1 on the U.S. charts...ouch! This album was revolutionary for Ari and a major step into adulthood for her! The tracks from this album are more mature, but don't have as much emotion as some of her other albums.

3. My Everything

My Everything was a great Ariana era. This album brought us so many party favorites: "Problem," "Break Free," "Bang Bang," "Love Me Harder" and "One Last Time." This album also gave us Ari's iconic half-up hairstyle and black cat ears. We love this album, it's just not our *absolute* favorite!

2. Thank U, Next

How could you not love Thank U, Next? This album was all about Ariana letting her guard down and being honest with her fans. From the album's fun, yet heartwrenching, title track "Thank U, Next" to the more emotional tracks like "Imagine" and "Fake Smile," Ariana gave us so many bops with this album. It was also amazing for fans to see how strong Ari is and how much she's grown over the past few years. Yes, queen!

1. Sweetener

Emotional. Beautiful. Real. Iconic. These are just a few words to describe the Sweetener era, where Ari truly came into her own with her music. Who can forget the girl-power song of 2019, "God is a Woman," or the emotional "Breathin," "R.E.M." or "No Tears Left to Cry?" Ariana truly opened her heart for this album and we couldn't love it more.
