Ariana Grande also talks meeting Pete years ago, knowing that she would marry him.
It's finally here, Ariana Grande's much talked about album Sweetener with its 15-tracks and all. The tape features the already familiar songs "Bed" featuring Nicki Minaj, "God Is A Woman" and "No Tears Left To Cry." The 14th single, however, is a special one since it's the name of Ariana's fiance, Pete Davidson. The beat is a short one, totalling 1 minute and 14 seconds where you hear Ariana sing, "I know that you're my soulmate and all that."
"I just made it and I sent it to him and I didn't know what to call it," Ariana told Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show, "a week after we started hanging out and stuff. So I just called it 'Pete.' It was either going to be that or 'This Is About Pete Davidson.' I was like, 'Why not? You know?' Just be direct."
Later in the interview, Ariana explained how she met Pete back in 2016 and from that moment knew she was going to marry him. "We met on SNL, like two or three years ago or whenever that was, and we never exchanged numbers or anything. We weren't even friends for a long time, but I had the biggest crush in the whole world on him the whole time — like, forever," she said. "And my friends used to make fun of me for it and all that stuff."
"I left his writers room when we were writing skits and stuff for the show and my tour manager was in the hallway. And I'm not a crush-y person. I don't have crushes on people I don't know," she revealed. "But I left and I jokingly said to my tour manager, 'I'm marrying him 100 percent.' I was like, 'I'm literally marrying him.' We weren't even friends. I didn't even see him at the afterparty."
