563 percent more people looked up the lyrics to Grande’s song after the couple ended their engagement.

News broke yesterday about Ariana Grande and comedian Pete Davidson calling off their engagement, with social media lighting up following the abrupt end to their four-month romance. Grande’s recent album sweetener features a minute-long interlude track titled “Pete Davidson,” which was inspired by the singer’s relationship with Davidson, and fans have been flocking to the song’s lyric page on Genius in the wake of their split.

Genius pageviews for the track soared 563 percent after the news broke; “Pete Davidson” earned 2,024 pageviews on Saturday, October 13, but a much larger 13,427 pageviews one day later.

On the track, Grande sings about Davidson being her soulmate and reflects on the perfect timing of their relationship:

I thought you into my life, look at my mind
No better place or a time, how they align
Universe must have my back, fell from the sky into my lap
And I know you know that you’re my soulmate and all that

She previously told Jimmy Fallon that she wrote the track about a week after they started hanging out earlier this year. “Pete Davidson” spent a single week on the Billboard Hot 100 chart back in August, peaking at No. 99.

During his appearance on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live last month, Davidson joked about the fate of the song should they ever break up.

“You know, I don’t even get royalties for that ‘Pete Davidson‘ song?“ he said. "Like, if we break up, and we won’t—we will—but we won’t. I’m kidding. But like in ten years, if God forbid that ever happened, there will be a song called ‘Pete Davidson‘ like playing in speakers at K-Mart and I’ll be working there.”
