He's been busy working on his latest album, Swimming , all while rebounding from his breakup with pop-queen Ariana Grande.
Fans were originally stunned to find out their two-year relationship had come to an end, but felt optimistic considering it seemed to be an amicable, mutual split. Now, these Mac Miller lyrics about Ariana Grande from Swimming give fans a little closer look into how the rapper is feeling about it all.
Miller's fifth album dropped on Friday, August 3, and has a refreshingly open and emotional vibe. He doesn't really seem "angry" so much as introspective. As HipHopWired.
Some of the track titles alone are pretty loaded. My quick assumption is Miller knows he was on a little bit of a toxic partying rollercoaster and Grande always helped bring him back down to earth.
Here are a few lyrics fans are linking to their relationship. Anytime he refers to a "she" or "her" it's easy to point towards Grande. In these lyrics, it sounds like Miller saw his time with Grande as relief and a break from his otherwise wild lifestyle.
First things first, Ariana Grande can sing. Like, really, really sing.
