Ariana Grande: Music and Exes


In the first verse of “thank you, next”, the lyrics said “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 / ‘Cause he was an angel.”

On Twitter, a fan joked about the words of the song  saying that two of Ariana’s exes might be surprised to hear their names dropped in the track but Ariana responded by saying  “They heard it before it came out.” Although, none of Ariana’s exes has commented on the song- thank you, next.

According to Ariana Grande, Ricky Alvarez and Big Sean each got to listen to “thank u, next” early.
