For Ariana's ex-fiancé, see Pete Davidson.

"Pete Davidson" (originally titled "Pete"; stylized in lowercase) is the fourteenth track from Ariana Grande's fourth studio album, Sweetener. It was released through Republic Records on August 17, 2018.

Background

The song was written when Grande and her now ex-fiancé, Pete Davidson, began dating. It was first teased on May 31, 2018, after Grande posted her first picture with Davidson on Instagram with the description: "i thought u into my life 💭 woah ! look at my mind 💡⚡️🙈".[1] This lyric was a hint of this song.

On June 7, 2018, Grande confirmed that recently she recorded an interlude for Sweetener.[2] On June 17, 2018, she posted a snippet of the interlude, then in that day, she confirmed the title "Pete".

The song was later renamed to "Pete Davidson":

This is about Pete Davidson. I was like, why not? You know? Be direct.

– Grande about renaming the track.[3]

Critical reception

Neil McCormick in The Daily Telegraph wrote that the song is "is utterly gorgeous, a sweet nothing dissolving into blissful oohs."[4] The Irish Times's Louis Bruton said the song "adds a lightness to the record."[5]

Brittany Spanos from RollingStone said that "Pete Davidson" is "a song that gets the point across with its title alone, she's found her serenity."[6]

Live Performances

Grande debuted "Pete Davidson" live on August 20, 2018 at The Sweetener Sessions. Due to the breakup with Pete Davidson, Grande did not feature the song on the Sweetener World Tour set list.
