Ariana Grande shares cut-and-paste ‘Thank U, Next’ lyric video

The star dropped the new song on Saturday night

Ariana Grande has shared a cut-and-paste style lyric video for her new single, ‘Thank U, Next’.

The track, which does not feature on her latest album ‘Sweetener‘, was released on Saturday night (November 3) – 30 minutes before the most recent episode of SNL was due to air.

‘Thank U, Next’ opens with Grande referencing her famous exes, including SNL comedian Pete Davidson, with whom she called off her engagement to last month, and late rapper Mac Miller.


The lyric video mimics the song’s artwork, with its words appearing as if they’ve been cut out and pasted onto a letter. You can watch the video above.

Yesterday (November 5), the pop star told her fans therapy had “saved [her] life so many times” after one Twitter follower jokingly asked who her therapist was. “lmaoaoo this is funny as fuck but in all honesty therapy has saved my life so many times,” Grande replied.

She also encouraged her followers to seek help if they needed it, telling them: “if you’re afraid to ask for help, don’t be. u don’t have to be in constant pain & u can process trauma. I’ve got a lot of work to do but it’s a start to even be aware that it’s possible.”

Meanwhile, a collection of unreleased songs by Grande was apparently “discovered” by one of her fans yesterday. However, a source close to the singer told NME it was not affiliated with the star.
