Ariana Grande sings about four of her ex-boyfriends, including Mac Miller and former fiancé Pete Davidson in a surprise single that she has released reports BBC.
Big Sean and Ricky Alvarez also appear in the track, titled Thank U, Next.
‘Thought I’d end up with Sean/But he wasn’t a match/Wrote some songs about Ricky/Now I listen and laugh,’ she sings.
‘Even almost got married/And for Pete I’m so thankful/Wish I could say thank you to Malcolm/Cause he was an angel.’
Malcolm, who died in September at the age of 26 is a reference to Miller.
‘One taught me love/One taught me patience/And one taught me pain/Now I’m so amazing,’ continues the track.
‘Say I’ve loved and I’ve lost/But that’s not what I see/So look what I got/Look what you taught me.
And for that I say/Thank U, Next.’
In 2013 Grande met miller and in 2016 they confirmed that they were in a relationship. They ended their relationship earlier this year.
It was with Davidson that she got together in May and the pair got engaged shortly after though they split up last month.
It’s less than three months since Grande released her fourth album Sweetener, but a lot has happened in her life since then.
Meanwhile, Davidson appeared on Saturday Night Live this weekend, telling the audience, ‘I know some of you are curious about the break-up, but the truth is, it’s nobody’s business.’
But Davidson after he aimed a joke at a US war veteran, found himself in hot water for his appearance on the show. Dan Crenshaw is a former US Navy Seal who lost an eye in an explosion in Afghanistan in 2012.
’This guy is kind of cool, Dan Crenshaw,’ commented Davidson of an image of Crenshaw wearing an eye patch.
He apologised for it later though others were less than impressed, including John McCain’s daughter Meghan.
