After Grande and Pete Davidson ended their engagement, she released the hit single in which she talks about her other ex-boyfriends and past relationships.
In the opening verse, the singer mentions Davidson, Big Sean, Ricky Alvarez, and the late Mac Miller.
“Thank U, Next” went right to the top of the Billboard Hot 10 upon its release.
Grande also performed the empowering track for the first time on The Ellen DeGeneres Show with an iconic ode to the movie The First Wives Club.

Overview: As the fourth addition to LSD, the album featuring dynamic trio Labrinth, Sia, and Diplo, “Mountains” is as powerful and strong as the title suggests. With a slow, acoustic start, the song will have listeners thinking this is a softer sound on the album, just to find the opposite in the chorus. Like all of the previous releases on LSD, “Mountains” is a banger that makes you want to dance around your room without a care in the world.
Michael Bublé changes several of the lyrics, all of which annoy me:
– “Santa baby” becomes “Santa buddy”, which is dumb, because the song is already called “Santa Baby”.
– He calls Santa “dude” instead of “dear”. Have some respect for Santa!
– He requests a “steel blue” car instead of a light blue one, because apparently men can’t like light blue now??? Guys! Please!
– He asks for a ’65 convertible instead of a ’54 one, but I don’t know anything about cars so I’ll let this one go.
