Do you ever listen to a song and hear something you're not supposed to hear? For instance, have you listened to Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" and thought the singer-songwriter said, "Tony Danza?" Or have you turned on the radio and heard Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" and when the musician sings "Starcrossed lovers," you thought she actually said, "Starbucks lovers?" (I'll admit, I'm still guilty of this one) It happens all the time.
The point is, everyone is guilty of mishearing a song lyric from time-to-time. But when it comes to misunderstanding the words sung by Ariana Grande in her new hit single, "thank u, next," it is causing a lot of listeners to jump to conclusions when it comes to the singer's romantic life. As it is reported, there are several people who are hearing Ariana Grande say "Aubrey" when she actually sings "Ari," in reference to herself. And it's causing a lot of music fans to believe that Ariana Grande is in a relationship with a girl named Aubrey. To add to the confusion, Apple Music has the wrong lyrics currently available.
According to East Bay Times, there are music fans who believe Ariana Grande is coming out with her latest song due to a great deal of confusion resulting from its lyrics. To add to the mayhem, Apple Music has "Aubrey" written instead of "Ari" when Ariana Grande sings the following in her song:
Ariana Grande didn't intend on coming out with this new song, but a lot of fans apparently believe that's what she's doing when they hear the mysterious name of Aubrey instead of Ari. Of course, Ariana Grande is using it as an abbreviation of her own name. In the actual song, the lyrics are meant to imply that she is in a relationship with herself, and she doesn't need another relationship. But upon first listen, some fans heard differently.
Ariana Grande's new song, "thank u, next," was released on Saturday night, shortly before Pete Davidson addressed his broken engagement with Grande on the latest episode of Saturday Night Live. There were rumors of bitterness forming between the former lovers, but Davidson had nothing but kind words to say about his ex, and Ariana Grande is seemingly using this newest controversial single to make peace with the end of her relationship. She also uses "thank u, next" to address the recent, unexpected death of her previous ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, who tragically passed earlier this year.
You've probably heard the song already. But in case you haven't, or you're looking to hear it once again, here's Ariana Grande's newest hit single, "thank u, next."
