Ariana Grande shocked the internet today by releasing a new single called “Thank U, Next”. The song is seemingly a response to the internet’s almost-disgusting interest in her recent break-up with SNL’s Pete Davidson following the death of Mac Miller.
But like a true pop queen, Ari keeps it classy. No, really. The song finds Grande thanking her exes (and, like, genuinely thanking them, not in a sarcastic way) and moving on to the next stage of her life: “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”.
P.S. If you listen closely, you can hear the music scene’s collective tears at the line “Wish I could say thank you to Malcolm / ‘Cause he was an angel”.
