Ariana Grande is keeping the hits coming.

A few weeks ago the 25 year old released a musical shout-out to her exes called ‘Thank U, Next,’ and now she has treated fans to another hit.

Entitled “Imagine,” Ariana has told her fans that it is about imagining a relationship that never ended.

Lyrics of the track include: “Staying up all night/Order me pad thai/Then we gon’ sleep til noon.”

Now, fans believe that the song is about her ex Mac Miller who passed away in September.

The late rapper had a song called “Cinderella”—written about Ari—which included the words, “And when you hungry, I can chef you up a stir fry.”

In addition, Mac had a tattoo which read “Imagine.”

So what is it about, according to the artist herself?

“A lot of this album mourns failed yet important, beautiful relationships in my life (as well as celebrates growth / exploring new independence,” the singer told her fans on her Instagram Story. “But for those of you asking about ‘Imagine:’ I would say if ‘Thank U, Next’ equals acceptance… ‘Imagine’ equals denial. Hope that makes sense.”

We wonder if grief, bargaining, and anger are to follow.
