The tragedy left Ariana struggling with crippling anxiety attacks, and in September, the singer's mental health took another big hit following the death of her ex-boyfriend, rapper Mac Miller, who passed away from an accidental drug overdose.

You know Sean, Pete, and Malcolm, but if you've given Ariana Grande's new song, "Thank U, Next", a listen or two, you may be thinking about some of the artist's exes that didn't merit a mention. But instead of focusing on the negative side of the split, Grande names each of her past exes and celebrates them for helping her grow.Fans reached out to the star to share love for the song on social media. "It's just about just being there for each other and helping each other through scary times and anxiety", she said of her song "Get Well Soon" in an interview earlier this year. "Even nearly got married / and for Pete I'm so thankful / Wish I could say, "thank you" to Malcom / 'Cause he was an angel".

"Thank u ♡ for hearing me and for making me feel so not alone", she wrote. One taught me love, one taught me patience, and one taught me pain'. "I truly am grateful".

"For somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh", Grande wrote in a since-deleted tweet.

The song dropped about 30 minutes before Davidson's show "Saturday Night Live" aired.

Davidson added of Grande, "She's a wonderful, strong person and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world". Kenan would present the perspective of stand-up comedians but would ultimately agree that Pete's joke didn't land.
