Ariana Grande opened up about the legacy of her late ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, during a Wednesday interview on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio show.

“I think that nothing mattered more to him than music, ever. And he was the kind of person who woke up and rolled into the studio, tumbled out of bed, into the studio next door,” she told host Zane Lowe.

“He was a person who gave literally every single second of his thought and time and life to his music,” she continued. “And I think that’s so evident in what he’s left us with, and just how many incredible and different bodies of work, everything from ‘Blue Slide Park,’ ‘Kids,’ to all the way through ‘Divine Feminine,’ to ‘Swimming,’ to ‘Circles,’ to everything in between.”

“It’s just such a beautiful gift I think that he kind of touched the world with,” she concluded, her voice cracking slightly, “and I think the thing he’d want most is for us to just appreciate it and not forget about it.”

Although Grande has discussed Miller on multiple occasions – with Instagram captions, song lyrics, subtle gestures during her “Sweetener” tour, and in a few print interviews – fans have rarely heard Grande reflect on his death in her own voice.

The two musicians became close friends in 2013 when they collaborated on Grande’s romantic hit single “The Way.” They began dating in 2016 and split in early 2018 after nearly two years together. Miller died a few months later of an accidental overdose.

Fans of both Grande and Miller were super emotional upon hearing the singer discuss her love for his music on Wednesday.

“u can heart the emotion in her voice and how much she loves and misses him,” one person wrote. “my heart is melting.”

“Ariana’s voice breaking when talking about Mac… my tiny heart cracked,” another wrote.

Some said they were “almost in tears” hearing Grande’s thoughts, or said they felt “soft.”

Others praised Lowe for approaching the subject with sensitivity, and praising Miller so Grande would feel comfortable.
