Ariana Grande hits back at relationship critics in new single yes, and?

The new single appeared to take a swipe at the recent criticisms Ari has received over her personal life – particularly her romance with Broadway star Ethan Slater.

The relationship sparked significant controversy once it was made public due to the murky timeline surrounding the start of their romance and Ethan's divorce from his high school sweetheart, Lilly Jay.

While insiders have affirmed both Ethan and the Positions singer were single when they got together, Lilly has made it clear she was blindsided by the relationship.

Ariana made her feelings clear in the new track as she sang, "Your business is yours and mine is mine / Why do you care so much whose d**k I ride?"
