In the music video, there is a scene where Ariana literally apologizes to her ex Pete Davidson. Ariana and Pete were together for five months before breaking up in October this year. She has taken a photo of her and Pete when they were a couple, while Pete\'s face is covered in purple hearts, alongside the photo, she writes his name in a big red heart, with the words \"I love u always\" and \"sry i dipped\". The line \"sry i dipped\" got social media all fired up, as it appears she is apologizing to Pete for ending their relationship.
Thank u, Next has racked up another achievement, as it has officially broken the record for most views on a YouTube video in 24 hours. The video garnered more than 50 million views till now, the music video is on track to break Vevo\'s record and clear 50 million views by the time its first 24 hours are up. Grande is understandably thrilled about this, she took to social media to share the good news, \"p.s. we set a new @vevo record. that\'s wild. i love u. thank u.\"
