One day after lashing out at her ex-fiancé Pete Davidson, Ariana Grande is taking a much more compassionate tone about her celebrity ex-boyfriends. Grande released a surprise song titled Thank U, Next 30 minutes before Saturday Night Live aired.

On Saturday night, Grande released the new song that talked about her SNL star ex Pete Davidson and her former love Mac Miller, who died of an apparent drug overdose in September and his death allegedly sparked the breakup with Davidson.

The lyrics from the song: “Got so much love ….. got so much patience ….. I’ve learnt from the pain ….. and turnt out amazin ….. say I’ve loved and I’ve lost ….. but that’s not what I see cause look what I got ….. look what you taught me… ‘Cause look what I found ….. ain’t no need for searching and for that I say ….. thank u, next.”

During the day she tweeted out some hints about Thank U, Next. “No drags…. no shade….. jus love, gratitude, acceptance, honesty, forgiveness … and growth … / i’m so …. f—in ….. grateful / for my …… ex.”

This is quite the 360-degree shift from Friday when the pop singer attacked Davidson for a dumb joke for an SNL promo. Davidson asked musical guest Maggie Rogers, “Hey Maggie, I’m Pete. You wanna get married?” To which Rogers politely declined. Davidson responds, “0 for 3,” a reference to his previous lovers Cazzie David, daughter of Larry David, comedian Carly Aquilino, and Grande.

Grande referenced her new song when going after Pete in a quickly deleted tweet, “Thank u, next.” She followed that up by besmirching Mr. Davidson, “For somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh.” Grande also quote-tweeted a fan who commented on the SNL promo that said, “SNL is about to milk their breakup just like they did with the engagement.”
