Shortly after Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson called off their engagement, Grande subtweeted her ex-fiance for making light of their failed relationship during a promo video for SNL. In the video, Davidson jokingly asks musical guest, Maggie Rogers, to marry him. She denies him her hand in marriage, and he replies to her with, “0 for 3.”
Ariana’s now deleted tweet in response to Davidson read:
“for somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh”
Moments after, the ponytail princess releases the title track to her highly anticipated album, “Thank U, Next.” The track addresses several of her past lovers, including her ex-fiance, Pete Davidson, her late boyfriend, Mac Miller, who just recently passed away in September, and rap artist, Big Sean.
Unfortunately the track isn’t a petty breakup song like many of her fans anticipated it to be, but it is undoubtedly the empowerment anthem we all want and need. With lyrics like, “One taught me love, one taught me patience, and one taught me pain,” Grande shows the importance of letting go of failed relationships and the beauty in growing from them.
Grande also teaches the importance of self-reflection and self-admiration through lyrics like, “Plus I met someone else, we havin’ better discussions. I know they say I move on too fast, but this one gon’ last, ’cause her name is Ari, and I’m so good with that.”
After hearing the title track, fans zealously await the arrival of the full album “Thank U, Next”. Unfortunately, there is no word when the album will release—but for now, we’ll keep moving on and thanking our exes in the process only because Ariana said so.
