American singer Ariana Grande recently revealed that there were three versions of her latest hit song Thank U, Next and opened up about how her split with ex-fianc-comedian Pete Davidson impacted the track's lyrics.

The pop singer recently appeared on the Zach Sang Show and talked about how her split with Pete, reported E! Online.

Thank U, Next includes Petes name as well as her other ex-boyfriends Big Sean, Ricky Alvarez and late rapper Mac Miller. The track was released in November, a month after she and Pete ended their brief engagement.

Ariana had told her fans on Twitter thatSean and Ricky had heard the track even before it wasdropped. In the recent interview she informed that Sean and Ricky both loved the song.

"Everyone that I am still in touch with has been very supportive of it," Ariana said in the interview.

She also hinted that she and the comedian are not in touch.

Ariana talked about how the song had three different versions and even referred to her broken engagement.

In the first version, Ariana 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."

She hadrecorded two alternate versions of the breakup track including one without the names.

I was also trying to be protective. In my relationship [with Pete] at the time, things were like up and down and on and off, and so I didn't know what was going to happen and then we got back together, so I had to make a different version of it, and then we broke up again, so we ended up going with that verse, she said.

There's a version where Iwasgetting married, there's a version where I'm not getting married, there's a version with nothingwe're not talking about anything. But we all knew that the first version was gonna be the version we ultimately went with, she added.

Ariana added, getting a little emotional, At the end of the day, these are people and relationships.It's real s--t to me. It is real life and I spent a lot of time with each of those people...it was like scary to put in a song."
