By now, most fans of Ariana Grande have probably heard – or at least heard – the new hit of pop star "Thank U, Next". Since the unexpected release of the track late Saturday night, November 3, the Internet is full of questions. Who are all people who mentioned Ariana Grande in "Thank U, Next"? The fiery opening verse of the song points to a handful of names that many fans of Grandes (especially those who have been there since the singer's career began) will probably recognize. Former romance with Big Sean, Ricky Alvarez, Mac Miller and – more recently – Pete Davidson, Grande's "Thank U, Next", give listeners an insight into what they've learned in the aftermath of these relationships.
This feels more than adequate, as many sales outlets have said Grande & # 39; s "Thank U, Next" is all about progress. As is usually the case with almost any type of personal growth, it often means dealing with the chapters you have left behind. In Grande's case, the personal enlightenment she has found for herself in "Thank U, Next" seems to be connected with serious critical reflection on each and every one of her great romances.
"I thought I ended up with Sean in the end, but he was not a game," says Croons Grande at the beginning of the song. He obviously refers to her relationship with Big Sean, the rapper with whom she has shared two extremely sweet (not to mention an extraordinarily large couple) -y) Duets: "Best Mistake" and "Right There". The couple had made their romance public during the Grammy Awards in 2015, but conceivably had been an item about half a year ago. After a report from E! The then news, Grande and Big Sean split in April of the same year after allegedly dating back almost nine months.
The first verse of the song instantly moves into a capable set of takeaways from every notable relationship that followed, from Alvarez to Davidson:
"I wrote some songs about Ricky / now I'm listening and laughing / I almost got married / And I'm so thankful for Pete / I wish I could say" Thanks "for Malcolm because he was an angel."
Not long after their breakup with Big Sean, rumors started that Grande and Alvarez, originally one of their backup dancers, wanted to go out together. In August 2015, another E! The news seemed to confirm the relationship rumors, and the two seemed to be quite happy about a year later. But in July 2016, Grande and Alvarez had also dissolved.
Then, about a month later, Grande and Miller revealed their relationship with the public at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. (Just so everyone on the same page about Grandes' lyrical credentials is Miller's maiden name, Malcolm McCormick.) The couple had some romantic rumors in the past, mainly because of their 2013 musical collaboration "The Way." And while they seemed to have been cuddled a few weeks before last year's VMAs, the couple made it official during the award ceremony. After that, Grande and Miller were together for about two years until they disbanded in public last May.
Just a few weeks after Grande had confirmed her and his breakup with Instagram stories, there were rumors that she and Davidson were dating. On May 30, Davidson, a Saturday night live Comedian, the relationship seemed to "confirm" with an since deleted Instagram photo of himself and Grande Harry Potter Costumes next to the caption "The Chamber of Secrets has been opened." At the end of June, Grande and Davidson were engaged.
Only a few months later, in October, Grande and Davidson parted after the singer had been exhausting for a few months. Following Miller's early death in early September, Grande stepped out of the limelight, dropped out of this year's Emmy Award show, and periodically resigned from social media. Grande has not commented directly on the Davidson separation reports. However, her last name drop in "Thank U, Next" indicates that she is no longer preoccupied with previous romances. Why? It sounds like she's in a different kind of relationship now:
"Besides, I've met someone else / we have better discussions / I know they say I'm moving too fast / But this one will be" last "because her name is Ari / and I'm so good at it."
So all in all, it seems pretty certain that Grande has no bitterness about the end of past romance novels. Her real thank you to all the ex-members of the new song makes her grateful for the time she has shared with them and what she has learned through these experiences. And as one proceeds from these experiences, the "next" relationship seems to be on Grande's horizon with oneself. Aside from romance, most people who were previously in any relationship know that this is definitely the most important thing you can sustain.
