The Real Meaning Behind Ariana Grande's Love Language

Ariana Grande fans were in for a big treat when the Sweetener singer debuted her sixth studio album, Positions in October 2020.

The album follows Grande's 2019 surprise drop of Thank U, Next which gave the artist her first No. 1 hits, with "Thank U, Next" and "7 Rings." Following a rough breakup with ex-fiancé comedian Pete Davidson, Grande expressed gratitude for all her famous exes in the titular track, and reiterated that she's better off by herself.

With 2020's Positions, Grande is back in love and healing from the tumultuous past three years, which included the Manchester terror attack on her tour, the death of ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, and the constant ups-and-downs that came with her relationship with Davidson. Grande is dating real estate agent Dalton Gomez.

Tracks from the album include lead single "Positions" and 13 other tracks that bring Grande's pop sound with a bit of sexual tension. The 11th track on the album, "Love Language," exemplifies the jazz-influenced, upbeat pop vibe of the entire album.

Fans are guessing Ariana Grande's love language

Much to fans' delight, Ariana Grande's Positions includes features from Ty Dolla $ign, Doja Cat and The Weeknd. Each single brings its own mix of Sweetener sounds with some R&B influences. The 11th track on the album, "Love Language," goes a step further with a jazz sound. Grande begins the single with, "Ooh, I know you're probably thinkin' what's the use / I promise it's the little things that you do."

So what is a love language? The concept, created by author Gary Chapman, explores the five "love languages" or ways in which people express and experience love, according to the official Love Language website. The five types of love languages include words of affirmation, physical touch, acts of service, gifts and quality time.

Judging by Grande's lyrics in her "Love Language" single, fans are guessing which love language the "God is a woman" singer claims. In the chorus, Grande sings "If you're gonna keep speaking my love language / You can talk your s*** all night," which makes us think maybe it's words of affirmation. One think is for sure, Grande's album is speaking our language.
