Ariana Grande opens up about 'painful' chapter after break up

The original Luke Skywalker, Mark Hamill recently quoted Ariana Grande's song and forthcoming album thank u, next. Grande and Davidson's whirlwind romance has been the subject of constant media attention and speculation, even after they announced their break up in early October.

Thank U, Next was also downloaded 81,000 times - a high total in a dying format and more than twice as many purchases as any other song last week.

Grande has landed 10 previous singles in the top 10, and in 2014 she took "Problem" all the way to #2, but it took her unconventional post-breakup dispatch "thank u, next" to get her to the summit. With elegance and grace, she gives a little summary about each relationship and talks about how one of them taught her love, one taught her patience and one taught her pain. The classic pop melody sounds likes something from a fairy tale and meshes perfectly with the surprisingly kind lyrics. In spite of the personal difficulties these last few months have thrown at her, it seems like she's doing her best to rise above the madness - anddiscover previously uncharted professional successes in the meanwhile. So, look what I've got, look what you've taught me, and for that, I say, 'Thank you, next'.

Before she released her new single Thank U, Next, she let two former flames - Big Sean and Ricky Alvarez - hear it in advance.
