Grande’s new song ref­er­ences for­mer loves

Sentinel-Review (Woodstock) - - NEWS -

NEW YORK — Ari­ana Grande has re­leased a song ref­er­enc­ing her exes, in­clud­ing for­mer fi­ancé and Satur­day Night Live star Pete David­son and the late Mac Miller. The midtempo song Thank U, Next ref­er­ences past splits and ex­presses grat­i­tude for what she has learned from the re­la­tion­ships. She talks about a Sean — she dated rap­per Big Sean — and a Pete and Mal­colm, which is the real first name of Miller. She says she wishes she could thank Mal­colm and calls him an an­gel. The rap­per died of a drug over­dose in Septem­ber. In the song, she sings about her new love, Ari, and says “she taught me love, she taught me pa­tience.” Mean­while, an emo­tional David­son ref­er­enced the split on SNL, call­ing her a “won­der­ful, strong per­son.”
