Ariana Grande may have a new hit single out in the form of "7 Rings."
But the beloved pop star took a moment away from celebrating this professional success on Saturday in order to mourn a personal loss.
We're talking, of course, about Mac Miller.
On the occasion of what would have been her ex-boyfriend's 27th birthday, Grande took to Twitter and posted a very simple and very heartfelt message.
It read: miss u.
Grande posted the message right after the clock struck midnight.
Miller was found dead of a suspected drug overdose in September of 2018.
He had been battling a substance abuse problem for many years prior to his passing, with Ariana crushed that she was unable to help Miller turn his life around.
About a week after this tragedy, Grande shared a video of Mac telling a story while they ate dinner together.
"i adored you from the day i met you when i was nineteen and i always will. i can't believe you aren't here anymore. i really can't wrap my head around it. we talked about this. so many times," she captioned it.
And she added:
"i'm so mad, i'm so sad i don't know what to do. you were my dearest friend. for so long. above anything else. i'm so sorry i couldn't fix or take your pain away.
i really wanted to. the kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved. i hope you're okay now. rest."
While Ariana has mostly chosen to mourn Miller in private, she did post about him again on social media just days after releasing her previous smash song "Thank U, Next."
This was the track on which she sang about her exes, including Miller and ex-fiancé Pete Davidson.
"Wish I could say, 'Thank you' to Malcolm / 'Cause he was an angel," Grande sings at the outset of the single.
Not long after Miller died, Grande started to date Pete Davidson.
They got engaged after just a few weeks and then went through a very public break-up.
Along with Grande, meanwhile, many others stars paid tribute to Miller on Saturday.
Wrote Juicy J, for example:
Happy bday to my brother Mac Miller i miss my bro every day.
We continue to send our condolences to Miller's loved ones, friends and family members.
May he rest in peace.

Kim Kardashian may actually just have declared peace with Taylor Swift.
And we can't believe it. Or can we?
The reality star posted a story on Snapchat featuring her glam look, but it wasn't her flawless skin that fans cared about.
Nope. It was the fact that Taylor's hit song 'Delicate' was playing in the background of the video. Obviously, fans went crazy over the subtle gesture the 38-year-old made and we all are wondering the same thing: could it be true?
Needless to say, the video caused some speculation that Kim was definitely trying to make amends.
Some fans found the whole situation humorous and Hollywood Life shares tweets from @g1veharryaoscar who says, "Lmao Kim Kardashian listening to delicate is the funniest thing omg." And @EllieLouisaaa wrote "Hahahaahahaha Kim Kardashian is listening to Delicate by Taylor Swift on her story aw cute x."
Other fans (probably Taylor's) found the whole situation very hypocritical though.
"What's the most ironic thing you've seen happen? - Kim listening to Taylor's song pretending she didn't try to sabotage her career," tweeted @delicate_styles and "The delicate lyrics included 'my reputation has never been worse' and Kim and her husband are directly responsible for that so how about she goes and buys herself a conscience."
While the insult may be harsh, it's not necessarily wrong.
The song is clearly a love anthem to boyfriend Joe Alwyn, but it's also about Kim and Kanye's fallout with the singer back in 2016.
Taylor's takedown album was partly targeted at Kim and Kanye, along with other past romances, but the album clearly expresses that Taylor... yeah, she's not a fan of the married couple.
In case you somehow missed out on all the drama back in 2016, Kim shared a video (also on Snapchat) of her husband calling Taylor to approve of a lyric about her in his song "Famous."
Taylor claimed she had never approved of the line. The media, along with Kim, quickly branded the singer - a snake.
Welcome to album number 6, Reputation
During the kickoff night on the Reputation tour, Taylor explained and opened up to all of her fans about why snakes were such a prominent symbol for her tour, according to The Washington Post.
She told her loyal fans, "a couple of years ago, someone called me a snake on social media and it caught on. Then a lot of people were calling me a lot of things on social media. And I went through some really low times for a while because of it."
Taylor then concluded with an inspirational speech on how to not let bullies bring you down and that you shouldn't care about what people think of you, especially if they don't know you.
But, that's so three years ago. Is Taylor ready to actually forgive and forget?
Maybe not... I mean her song "This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things" suggests the singer is not looking to forgive anytime soon. I mean she literally laughs at the thought and couldn't even say it with a straight face.
I guess only time can tell.
Cohen asked the Keeping Up With The Kardashians Star if there is still "beef with Taylor" after everything went down. She shakes her head no and states she "feels like we have all moved on."
So, Tay... thoughts?
