This morning, British electro pop outfit the 1975 took to the BBC’s Live Lounge, where they covered pop sensation Ariana Grande’s viral track “thank u, next.”
Grande released the song about her exes after breaking it off with comedian Pete Davidson. She’s “somebody who I’ve started to really care about for some reason,” the 1975 frontman Matty Healy explains about Grande. “She’s had a ripe old tough time, and I like her a lot. I think she’s cool. And she’s got a great voice, and I don’t, so I’m going to sing one of her songs.”
