Ariana Grande surprise-released a new song last night, titled “thank u, next,” which addresses her relationships with Mac Miller and Pete Davidson.

Grande has been in the headlines for her personal life throughout 2018. The singer was engaged to Davidson after a whirlwind romance, but the pair ended their relationship abruptly last month. Grande’s other ex, Mac Miller, passed away from a drug overdose in September.

Grande released the sanguine jam just minutes before Davidson appeared on last night’s Saturday Night Live, but was quick to stress it isn’t intended as a diss. She then alluded to the song being about the comedian in a set of tweets. “I’m so …. f–kin ….. grateful,” read one message, while the next added, “For my …… ex.”

The lyrics go:

“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 [Miller]
Cause he was an angel,

“One taught me love
One taught me patience
And one taught me pain
Now I’m so amazing
Say I’ve loved and I’ve lost
But that’s not what I see
So look what I got
Look what you taught me
And for that I say

“Thank u, next
Thank u, next
Thank u, next
I’m so f—ing grateful for my ex.”
