Grande recently released the break-up song "Thank U, Next" that names four of her boyfriends in the lyrics: Big Sean, Ricky Alvarez, Mac Miller, and ex-fiance Pete Davidson.
In the song, she sings:
"Thought I'd end up with Sean/But he wasn't a match/Wrote some songs about Ricky/Now I listen and laugh.
"Even almost got married/And for Pete I'm so thankful/Wish I could say thank you to Malcolm/Cause he was an angel."

Twitter user Ali wondered out loud what Big Sean's and Ricky's reactions would be to the song.
