Ariana, 25, posted an Instagram story that simply said, “Six years.” “The Way” was Ariana and Mac’s first single together and earned them both their first top 10 song on the Billboard Hot 100.
The “Thank U, Next” singer also posted a photo of Mac’s dog Myron and captioned it, “Real protective with my soul where YOU been.”
On the day of the song’s anniversary, fans captured video of the singer breaking down on stage as she sang “Goodnight n Go” and “Thank U, Next.” The latter song has several lyrics dedicated to Mac.
Ariana later addressed her onstage tears on Twitter and wrote, “Thanks for accepting my humanness. It’s super emo and difficult singing some of these songs.”
