Fans Think Mac Miller s New Song is About Ariana Grande s Rebound Relationship mac miller ariana grande gif


For the last couple of months, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson‘s relationship has been at the forefront of all news headlines. We want to know everything there is to know about their romance, but little has been said about the singer’s ex-boyfriend Mac Miller. Ever since their split, he’s kept a pretty low profile – until today, when the rapper released a song that fans think is about Ariana.

Just hours after she dropped her new song “God is a Woman,” Mac announced his forthcoming album Swimming, as well as released a new music video for the track “Self-Care.” In it, he raps about his personal struggles, as well as reflects on a failed relationship that he’s trying to get over.

“Can’t trust no one, can’t even trust yourself, yeah / And I love you, I don’t love nobody else,” he raps. “Self-care, I’m treatin’ me right / Hell yeah, we’re gonna be alright.” He continues, “Well, didn’t know what I was missing / Now it see a lil’ different / I was thinking too much / Got stuck in oblivion.”

He also seemingly questions Ariana’s love for the Saturday Night Live star and whether it’s the real deal. “We play it cool we know we f*cked up, yeah / You keep on sayin’ you in love, so / Tell me are you really down? / Are you really down? Yeah,” he raps on the track.

Mac never mentions Ariana by name, but his lyrics have many fans wondering if they’re about her. Some Twitter users have even gone as far as thanking Ariana for breaking up with Mac.

The two broke up in May after two years of dating, and many news outlets reported that the couple called it quits due to their busy work schedules. However, after a fan bashed Ariana for splitting up with Mac, she set the record straight and revealed that their relationship had become “toxic” due to his inability to stay sober. She went on to say that she has nothing but love for the rapper, but that she is not his babysitter. Soon after, she was spotted with Pete, and the two got engaged two weeks later.

Up until now, Mac has yet to comment on her new relationship, nor has there been any public drama between the exes. But the words in his song speak for themselves. Those are the only times he addresses a past relationship, but the song’s lyrics also reference Mac’s car accident and DUI arrest in March. He mentions the Mercedez he was speeding in and brings up the fact that he’s been losing his mind lately and needs somebody to save him from himself. The music video is pretty deep, too, paying homage to Quentin Tarantino‘s Kill Bill Vol. 2 and featuring Mac inside a coffin. Like Uma Thurman does in the film, he punches his way out.
