Ariana Grande’s new album Thank U, Next is a treasure trove of hidden messages. And one track in particular is making a lot of fans very emotional — 'Ghostin'.
The song, which is reportedly the longest on Thank U, Next at 4 minutes and 31 seconds, seems to be about her relationship with Mac Miller and Pete Davidson. Considering that both of them broke up with her a year ago, it makes sense that she would want to share this song with them.
'Ghostin' is about feeling like the person you're with doesn't love you enough. They might be jealous of you or they might feel they can't compare. You feel bad for them, because you love someone else.
It's also about being afraid of losing the person you're with if you don't make it work. Ideally, you should never have to feel this way about your partner.
But if you're in a relationship, it can be tough to not have that feeling of wanting to break up with them. The best way to deal with it is to let go.
There are a few different ways that people interpret the lyrics, but the most common theory is that this song is about Mac Miller, her ex-boyfriend who passed away in September 2018. It's also about apologizing to Pete Davidson for how she handled things after Mac died.
