Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson fans are finally getting answers as to why the couple broke off their engagement.
After Davidson’s heartfelt tribute to Grande on the latest episode of SNL, the pop singer had a few things to get off her chest too – in the form of a new song called ‘Thank You, Next’.
Thank You, Next
After Grande’s recent Twitter rant about ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson, fans wondered if the love between the two has now been replaced by animosity. But the 25-year-old singer put the speculations to rest with the release of her new song.
Thank You, Next dropped just moments before Davidson’s appearance on Saturday Night Live and many thought that it was just Ariana’s way of one-upping her former fiancé. But surprisingly, she had nothing but good things to say about her ex.
Not only did she mention Davidson, but she also talked about her former exes Big Sean and late Mac Miller.
The lyrics of the new track go like:
“Thought I’d end up with Sean, but he wasn’t a match
Wrote some songs about Ricky, now I listen and laugh
Even almost got married, and for Pete I’m so thankful
Wish I could say thank you to Malcolm (Mac Miller), cause he was an angel.”
In Thank you Next, Ariana Grande talks about how thankful she is for all the failed relationships in her life. After all, each one of them taught her some important lessons.
The song continues:
“One taught me love, one taught me patience
And one taught me pain, now I’m so amazing
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 you, next
I’m so f***ing grateful for my ex.”
It’s been an eventful week for bother Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande. A few days ago, the pop star lashed out at the comedian after he made an insensitive joke about their failed engagement. In a promo for the latest episode of SNL, Davidson jokingly asked Maggie Roggers to marry him. But ironically she also rejected him.
After watching the clip, furious Grande took to Twitter to voice her frustration. She said, “For somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh.” She ended her rant by tweeting, “Thank you, next.” But at the time, fans didn’t realize that she was actually hinting towards her new song.
