Ariana Grande scored her first ever number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (on Nov. 17) for her new release, “Thank U, Next”. This song is the top-streamed and top-sold song of the week. This song was inspired by her past relationships and the lessons she has learned from all of them, but also how she is still grateful that they made her happy at one point in her life. “Thought I’d end up with Sean, but he wasn’t a match”, she says about the rapper Big Sean she dated from 2014 to 2015. Ariana also sings about another ex Ricky Alvarez, “Wrote some songs about Ricky, now I listen and laugh”. She sings, “Even almost got married, and for Pete I’m so thankful”, talking about her most recent breakup with Pete Davidson. Lastly she includes her ex Mac Miller who had passed away recently this past September, “Wish I could say ‘Thank you’ to Malcolm, ‘Cause he was an angel”.
