With over 70 songs that have charted on the Billboard Hot 100, Ariana Grande has a ton of bangers. What’s even more impressive is that the singer seems to have a song for EVERY SINGLE MOOD.

If you’re curious which Ariana Grande track you should listen to based on your current mood, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Check out our list below of 10 Ariana Grande songs for every mood.
Ariana Grande songs for when you’re in a great mood: “Dangerous Woman”
Key Lyrics: “Nothing to prove and I’m bulletproof and know what I’m doing”
The lead single from her album of the same name, “Dangerous Woman” will surely keep you in a great mood and, if you’re not already in one, get you there in about a millisecond. The track is influenced by rock and features an incredible vocal range by Ariana Grande. Every time I hear the beat drop for the chorus, and Ariana Grande starts belting, I can feel my endorphins rising.
The singer’s vocals blew fans away.

Ariana Grande songs for when you just wanna chill: “R.E.M.”
Key Lyrics: “Excuse me, um, I love you”
Ariana Grande’s blissful lyrics flow perfectly over Pharrell Williams’s dreamy production on this track off Sweetener. The pop star sings about not wanting to wake up from a dream in which she’s in love with someone and we can’t blame her. “R.E.M.” instantly transfers you into another world and is the perfect Ariana Grande song to chill out to.
The track is definitely a fan favorite.
If its rem by ariana I will scream bc that’s my fave ari song rn
— emma⁹ 🌻 (@greysnights) May 12, 2021
rem is my favorite ariana song to this day
— lexi | 🇵🇸♡ (@afterhoursdiary) May 16, 2021
Not only are people loving “R.E.M.”, but the entire Sweetener album still hits years later.
REM is such good a song, I mean, the whole sweetener album is magic, i love listening to ariana grande, she stole my heart

Ariana Grande songs for when you’re moving on: “thank u, next”
Key Lyrics: “One taught me love/ One taught me patience/ And one taught me pain/ Now, I’m so amazing”
“Thank, u next” is Ariana Grande’s biggest hit to date and it’s because of how relatable and empowering it is. The singer name drops some of her more notable relationships during a track that explores the journey towards self-love. From Big Sean to Ricky Alvarez to Pete Davidson and Mac Miller, each of Ariana Grande’s past relationships helped her grow, which is a lesson for anyone who’s moving on from a relationship.
The song famously debuted minutes before an episode of SNL, in which her ex Pete Davidson is a primary cast member.
It doesn’t matter how long it’s been, “thank u, next” still slaps.
Thank u, next still slaps. SLAPS @ArianaGrande

A song isn’t beloved until it’s been made into a Spongebob meme.

The music video has been a clear inspiration for many.

Although, too many listens may get the attention of your neighbors.
Someone in the neighborhood has had Ariana Grande’s “Thank u, next” on repeat for the last 30 minutes so I hope they’re okay 💕
— several pillows in a trenchcoat (@toomuchtori) May 14, 2021
The track brings back nostalgic memories for many.

Ariana Grande songs for when you want to be in an ‘80s movie: “Save Your Tears (Remix)”
Key Lyrics: “Boy, take me back ’cause I wanna stay”
Although it’s technically a remix of The Weeknd’s song, this song is SUCH a vibe that we had to include it. With heavy influence from synth pop, “Save Your Tears (Remix)” feels like it’s straight out of your favorite ‘80s movie (which we’ve all wanted to live in at one time or another). The original recording of the track was great; however, Ariana Grande’s vocals on the remix elevate the song to a whole other level.
The Ariana Grande and The Weeknd collab was an instant chart topper.
— billboard (@billboard) May 10, 2021
“Save Your Tears (Remix)”, by The Weeknd and Ariana Grande, is #1 for another week on the Billboard Hot 100. 🩸

It was a major reason why this fan tuned into the iHeartRadio Music Awards.

— s. (@hausdiamonds) May 12, 2021
“Save Your Tears (Remix)” recently became the singer’s most streamed song of the year.
— R (@grandelovesick2) May 17, 2021
Above all else, it is a MOOD.
Save Your Tears
The Weeknd, Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande songs for when you’re feeling romantic: “Stuck with U”
Key Lyrics: “I could stay here for a lifetime”
Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber gave us a classic love song last year that hit us in the feels about spending quality time with our significant others. The song and homemade music video was released to raise money for the First Responders Children’s Foundation. However, the romantic lyrics make this a great Ariana Grande song to play when you’re in love.
The song’s video featured numerous high school students who were forced to miss their prom because of the pandemic. Additionally, the video featured countless celebrity cameos including: Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Demi Lovato, 2 Chainz, Ayesha Curry, Gwyneth Paltrow, Chance the Rapper, Kate Hudson, Lil Dicky, Michael Bublé, Jaden Smith, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, in addition to Justin Bieber with his wife Hailey Baldwin.
“Stuck With U” recently celebrated its first birthday.

Ariana Grande songs for when you’re on your workout grind: “Side to Side”
Key Lyrics: “Makin’ everybody think that we solo/ Just as long as you know you got me”
Another bop from Dangerous Woman, Ariana Grande teamed up with the Queen of rap Nicki Minaj for “Side to Side.” The song is incredibly upbeat and Nicki Minaj’s “bicycle” and “tricycle” metaphors allow the song to act as an excellent workout track for anyone willing to side step the lyric’s true meaning. As a fun tip of the hat, the song’s music video prominently features Ariana Grande leading a cycling class before doing various other workouts.
“Side to Side” was a popular aqua aerobics song despite the promiscuous lyrics.
I used to teach an aqua aerobics class and side to side by Ariana Grande was on my regular playlist.

Ariana Grande songs for when you’re in your feels: “off the table”
Key Lyrics: “Will I ever love somebody like the way I did you?”
After a devastating breakup, Ariana Grande questions whether love is even possible for her anymore on this collab with The Weeknd. “Off the table” is a heartbreaking track that features the pop singer at her most vulnerable as she heals from the tragic ending of a relationship. Although it may not be the most popular song off 2020’s Positions, it is certainly the most personal.
Ariana Grande was indeed able to find love again. Just this past weekend, the singer secretly married her fianceé Dalton Gomez after a six-month engagement.
Fans instantly connected to the track.
off the table by ariana grande is THAT song
— skyler 🦋✨ (@skyleralasiaaa) May 12, 2021

Ariana Grande songs for when you wanna duet : “The Way”
Key Lyrics: “And I don’t care who sees it, babe, I don’t want to hide the way
I feel when you’re next to me”
Ariana Grande’s breakout hit is still one of her best. The bouncy production, sweet and romantic lyrics, and Mac Miller feature make this the perfect song to duet. “The Way” is the first of many Ariana Grande and Mac Miller collaborations. The pair went on to date for two years from 2016 until 2018 making “The Way” that much sweeter. Additionally, “The Way” was the first top 10 hit for both artists.
Who gets to sing Ariana Grande’s part and who gets to sing Mac Miller’s?
singing “the way” and she’s ariana grande and im mac miller
— kalen 🙂 (@kalenryannn) May 10, 2021
Is “The Way” the pop star’s best song?

Although, the track may not be the best to do leg presses to.

Ariana Grande songs for when you’re in the Christmas spirit: “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”
Key Lyrics: “Baby, it’s cold outside”
Didn’t I mention Ariana Grande and Mac Miller made a lot of music together? This cover of the iconic Christmas song is sort of a hidden gem but definitely worth a listen every holiday season. The chemistry and cozy atmosphere in the artists’ cover of this song is undeniable. Although the lyrics remain unchanged, Mac Miller made some alterations to the production under his producer alias “Larry Lovestein.”
Fans have been hyping this song up for years.
listen to baby its cold outside by mac miller & ariana grande and i promise you wont be disappointed 😍

Ariana Grande songs for when you wanna dance: “Into You”
Key Lyrics: “A little less conversation and a little more touch my body”
Lastly, the club beat and flirty lyrics of “Into You” prove that the 2016 hit is a great track to let loose and dance to. Additionally, Ariana Grande’s lyrics are some of her catchiest with the track’s chorus being irresistible. Even people who live in that Footloose town would have a hard time not dancing to “Into You.”
Fans are already desperately missing hearing this track in clubs.
I very much would like to experience “into you” by Ariana Grande in a club like rn pls
— zach (@zachhogge) May 16, 2021
While others have had their lives changed as a result of listening.
