Ariana Grande announces new album Thank U, Next

Ariana Grande announces new album Thank U, Next

Ariana Grande has been through an very bad lot over the past few years.

And with good reason.

The opening verse features references to four of her previous boyfriends, including rapper Big Sean, dancer Ricky Alvarez, Pete Davidson, and the late Mac Miller. With self-love at the crux of the song's message, she keeps an optimistic outlook on the future, shares her decision to focus on her relationship with "Ari", and repeats "Thank u, next" in the chorus. She says she wishes she could thank Malcolm and calls him an angel.

Ariana Grande's new single "Thank U, Next" arrived by surprise on Saturday night - perfectly timed to the evening's episode of "Saturday Night Live", which featured her ex-fiance Pete Davidson. In the commercial for "Saturday Night Live", Davidson jokingly proposed to artist Maggie Roggers.

When Davidson appeared on Weekend Update he made an early reference to the breakup, saying that he started paying attention to the midterms "after I had to move back in with my mom". He said, "And the last thing I will say is I know some of your curious about the breakup but the truth is it's nobody's business and sometimes things don't work out, and that's OK".

Unsurprisingly, fans have been going insane over the track and have thanked the "Sweetener" star for providing them with the ultimate break-up song.

Whether you choose to believe that Ariana is dating herself or Aubrey, enjoy the iconic pop culture moment that is "thank u, next" below.
