After breaking things off with fiance Pete Davidson earlier this month, Ariana Grande released a new song called "Thank U, Next" in which she thanked all of her ex-boyfriends for everything they'd done for her. Fans loved the track but couldn't help but notice that, in the Apple Music lyrics of the song, Grande seemed to have already moved on to an unknown girl named "Aubrey."
Though the words are a little hard to decipher when listening to the song, Apple Music's lyrics cleared things up...kind of.
Grande fans everywhere went on the Aubrey hunt.

Of course, it wasn't long before the singer stepped in to make a correction. It turns out she had said "Ari" in reference to herself.
Her enunciation was slightly muddled, resulting in the misunderstanding with Apple lyrics.

Fans began to wonder how long the error would stay live on Apple Music, fooling even more people into believing Grande was in love with someone named Aubrey.

Me googling "Who is Aubrey" when my dumb ass should have realized Ariana just didn't enunciate "Ari" properly https://t.co/tRtoJI21DW— Sam Stryker (@Sam Stryker)1541303328.0
To be fair, there were also some Twitter users who wished there was an Aubrey.

The Aubrey issue was a relatively small one. Fans love "Thank U, Next" for its heartwarming message and open mind.
