Songs Played Backwards Have Hidden Meanings
There’s a hidden message in one of Ariana Grande’s most meaningful songs
Putting it on repeat, immediately.
Ariana Grande’s new albumSweeteneris a real force to be reckoned with and has been racking up all the accolades: snagging the coveted top spot on Billboard’s chart and blasting through Spotify’s global record for biggest opening week by a female artist. Beyond the numbers and figures however, the powerful emotion and uplifting message of the album has really made its mark and there’s also some major bops on there. As some beady-eyed fans have also noticed, the pop star has also woven some secret messages into the tracks and a new one has us tearing up at the office.
If you’ve listened to her trackBreathin’before, prepare for a new fan theory to change everything you thought you knew about the song. The song’s first fifteen seconds open with a series of ethereal chimes and right before her vocals begin, you can just about make out a quiet voice mumbling something indecipherable.
Well, one savvy fan did some investigating and realised that if you reversed the intro – there was a pretty beautiful message hidden in it.
User @arianavxnti shared their findings on Twitter, saying, ‘If you reverse the intro of breathin’ you can hear grandpa grande saying “tonight is your special night, do something magical”’

@arianavxnti kindly did the fine-tuning for us and shared a reversed version of the track, which you can listen to above. While many fans have leapt to the conclusion that the voice is the star’s grandfather who sadly passed in 2014, Ariana cleared things up on Twitter after it was drawn to her attention.
