Ariana Grande and Mac Miller have called it quits on dating ... but sources close to the 2 tell TMZ they remain the closest of friends.
We're told Ariana and Mac quietly cut off their romantic relationship after their work schedules became too busy, but they've remained best friends since then ... as always.
Our sources say the ex-couple love each other dearly and that will continue to be the case but, again ... just as close friends.

Ariana publicly announced she and Mac were an item in September 2016, and he was there for her during and after the tragedy of the Manchester bombing.
Less than a month ago ... Miller expressed his admiration for Grande on Twitter when she released her first new track since the bombing, "No Tears Left to Cry."
The song is from her upcoming album, "Sweetener," set to release in July.
Donald Glover is taking an equivocal approach on the meaning behind his new music video, saying it's not up to him to tell you what message to extract ... so, figure it out yourself.
We got Donald -- aka Childish Gambino -- Wednesday night at The Peppermint Club in WeHo, where our camera guy asks what exactly is behind "This Is America" -- which debuted on 'SNL' over the weekend.
Ever the artiste, Don isn't giving up the goods that easily -- instead, leaving it open to interpretation for the viewer. A lot of folks have weighed in on what it could represent ... from commentary on gun control, desensitized violence and black culture. Perhaps more.
Whatever its intended purpose, he's definitely got people talking ... which seems to be exactly what he wanted. Just look at Marlon Wayans ... he couldn't stop raving about it, or Donald's "strip club" moves.
