Is Mac Miller’s New Song ‘Self Care’ About Ariana Grande Split?
On Friday (July 13), rapper Mac Miller shared his latest single, "Self Care," from his upcoming album, Swimming. Arriving two months after his breakup with Ariana Grande, fans are already dissecting the lyrics and wondering if the song is about the "God Is a Woman" singer.
On "Self Care," Miller raps, "Well, didn't know what I was missing / Now I see a lil' different / We play it cool / We know we f---ed up, yeah / You keep on sayin' you in love, so? / Tell me are you really down?"
While the lyrics may appear to be about a woman in the Pittsburgh rapper's life, TMZ reports that Grande isn't the subject of the song. Written by Miller, rapper J.I.D and singer Dev Hynes, the site claims "Self Care" was actually penned last year.
Still, it's hard to believe the song is about anyone but Grande, especially when Mac raps, "And I love you, I don't love nobody else, yeah / Tell them they can take that bullshit elsewhere / Self care, I'm treatin' me right, yeah / Hell yea, we're gonna be alright (We gon' be alright)."
Grande and Miller officially split in May due to their busy schedules. Following the breakup, Grande shared a message with her fans, saying she will always adore the rapper. "I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us!" she said.
