Ariana Grande is getting a lot of love.
The superstar singer dropped her new song, “Thank U, Next” on Saturday night (after teasing it on Twitter earlier in the day) and it mentions her exes by name.
In the new single, Ari talks about learning from her relationships over the years and growing into the person she is now.
“Even almost got married/And for Pete I’m so thankful,” she sings in lyrics about comedian Pete Davidson, who mentioned their breakup in a respectful tone during a Weekend Update segment on “Saturday Night Live,” which aired a short while after the tune’s release.
Ariana’s manager, Scooter Braun, said he was staying up late watching the reactions roll in.

“Best song ever,” Kristin Chenoweth commented.
Halsey tweeted, “Don’t talk to me about anything but Ariana for the next 72 hours pls.”
