Instead of being bitter and angry, which she would have every right to, Ariana has taken the positives from her past relationships and turned them into a hit song.
Instead of dragging or slamming any of the men she's shared her life with, she's thanked them for what they have taught her.
Some of 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 / Cause he was an angel."
In order, they reference Big Sean, Ricky Alvarez, Pete Davidson and of course Mac Miller, who passed.
"One taught me love / One taught me patience / And one taught me pain / Now I’m so amazing."
The title of the song, "thank u, next" actually came from a savage tweet she sent to Pete, after he made their called-off engagement a joke on Saturday Night Live.
When pretended to propose to a guest, she declines, and he says to the camera, "0 for three."
After the clip came out, Ariana took to Twitter.
"For somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh," she wrote in a tweet, adding in another, "thank u, next."
