TMZ

Ariana Grande isn't going to let Pete Davidson define their relationship and breakup on "Saturday Night Live" tonight, because TMZ has learned she's releasing a song 30 minutes before "SNL," and his name is right there in the lyrics.

Record label sources tell TMZ, the overarching theme of the song -- titled "Thank u, next" -- is empowerment ... what she's been through in her relationships and other experiences. We're told it is not a diss track.

Our sources say she specifically names Pete, Mac and others ... but she doesn't go after Pete the way she did earlier this week after he publicly joked about their breakup. She had accused him of being a hypocrite ... pretending he wasn't into being in the spotlight yet hanging on for dear life.

We're told Ariana felt betrayed by Pete and doesn't want to take the chance that he'll talk about their breakup tonight on "SNL" as she just sits by. As we reported ... Pete was planning on addressing it, but 86'd the idea after she made it clear they had an agreement to keep their relationship private. Nonetheless, anything could happen.

Among the lyrics, which she posted, "Got so much love ..... got so much patience ..... I've learnt from the pain ..... and turnt out amazin ..... say I've loved and I've lost ..... but that's not what I see cause look what I got ..... look what you taught me."

It goes on ... "Cause look what I found ..... ain't no need for searching and for that I say ..... thank u, next."

The song will be released at 11 PM ET.

WTF. It's going to be released tonight?! Oo

It's crazy that Britney's "soon" means 6 months to a year while Ariana's "soon" is like 10 hours :D

It's out and it's a cute R&B smooth kinda bop. She's name dropping her exes and pretty much talking about loving herself and the lessons she's learned from it. I think it's super cute. Not necessarily better or worse than anything on Sweetener.

thank u, Ariana, but next, pls.

This is three times back. Fans of "Yours Truly" will probably eat this up.

It's alright, though, I like the lyrics but I am not a fan of the arrangement, melody. Etc.

Already playlisted on Spotify's Today Top Hits. So they're really pushing it, I guess?

Franklin’s music profoundly touched and changed the world, because over and over it offered that bridge to salvation, to freedom.

She should just grieve privately. I can't believe she had to mention Mac Miller in this song where she is obviously pretending to be okay emotionally, she sounds like she's going through a breakdown.

This is what she gets for dating an assh*le like Pete, he knows how to annoy her and here she is ruining her discography with senseless tracks about him.

She should do whatever works for her, music can be therapy and if she decided to share that, that is her way of dealing. People deal differently with things and unless you have been there and walked those shoes, you have No ground to say how someone should grief.

This is really cute. Smooth R&B-lite with extremely candid lyrics.

I'm going to take a guess that this won't be promoted to radio and the album won't have a traditional release.

I admire the idea behind the campaign and found the whole thing very exciting! The song however doesn't leave much of an impression although it is very pleasant to listen to. I find it hard to imagine a chorus line like "I'm so f***ing grateful to my ex" airing on radio. Great meaning and lyrics though, wish she spent more time on production and musical detail.
