Listen: Ariana Grande Sings About Exes In New Song, “Thank u, next”
God Is A Woman hitmaker Ariana Grande has become a trending topic once again following the release of her new music titled, “Thank u, next”.
Grande’s mom, Joan Grande, tweeted about the song’s release, which came out Saturday night, just minutes before Saturday Night Live.
This is coming after the award-winning Grande insinuated on Twitter that there would be some sort of new music out soon that’s directly related to her ex-fiancé Pete Davidson.
Fans can’t stop talking about the new song which she has had to defend is “far from a diss track.” In fact, “it’s the opposite,” she tweeted.
In another string of tweets, she alluded to the song being about Davidson.
“i’m so …. f–kin ….. grateful,” she said in one message. “For my …… ex,” the next one read.
In “Thank u, next,” Grande calls out Davidson by name in one of her lines. She also mentions her ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, who died in September. She sang,
“Now I listen and laugh / Even almost got married / And for Pete, I’m so thankful / Wish I could say, ‘Thank you’ to Malcolm / ‘Cause he was an angel,” she croons in the first verse.
The song is less of a bitter “on to the next” type of song, but rather a sincere thanks to her ex-boyfriends for all teaching her valuable lessons.
“One taught me love / One taught me patience / One taught me pain / Now, I’m so amazing / I’ve loved and I’ve lost.”
In the end, Grande makes it seem that this has been a huge learning experience and she declares she’s even met someone new:
“Her name is Ari / And I’m so good with that.”

It would be recalled that on Saturday, the Bed singer announced the name of her new album and the title track. It’ll be called “Thank U, Next.” Grande explained the meaning of the song and meaning behind the title in a Twitter discussion with her fans.
