Side to Side - Ariana Grande ft. Nicki Minaj




The Experience: See you standing over there with your body... It's another relationship that's only skin deep... so why is it portrayed as something special?



Music video: The music video is heavy on girls flaunting their bodies and men in underwear used as props. 

The Meaning of Side to Side: Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj reduce attraction to temptation, relationships to sex, and themselves - and the men they service - to bodies.

Ask yourself: Is there more to relationships than this? Why do so many songs stop at sex?

Album: Dangerous Woman (2016)

LYRICS:

[Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj]
I've been there all night, Ariana
I've been there all day, Nicki Minaj
And boy, got me walkin' side to side
Let them h--s know

[Ariana Grande]
I'm talkin' to ya
See you standing over there with your body
Feeling like I wanna rock with your body
And we don't gotta think 'bout nothin' ('bout nothin')
I'm comin' at ya
'Cause I know you got a bad reputation
Doesn't matter, 'cause you give me temptation
And we don't gotta think 'bout nothin' ('bout nothin')

[Ariana Grande]
These friends keep talkin' way too much
Say I should give you up
Can't hear them, no, 'cause I...

[Ariana Grande]
I've been there all night
I've been there all day
And boy, got me walkin' side to side
I've been there all night
I've been there all day
And boy, got me walkin' side to side (side to side)

[Ariana Grande]
Been tryna hide it
Baby, what's it gonna hurt if they don't know?
Makin' everybody think that we solo
Just as long as you know you got me (you got me)
And boy I got ya
'Cause tonight I'm making deals with the devil
And I know it's gonna get me in trouble
Just as long as you know you got me

[Ariana Grande]
These friends keep talkin' way too much
Say I should give you up
Can't hear them, no, 'cause I...

[Ariana Grande]
I've been there all night
I've been there all day
And boy, got me walkin' side to side (side to side)
I've been there all night
(Been there all night, baby)
I've been there all day
(Been there all day, baby)
And boy, got me walkin' side to side (side to side)

[Nicki Minaj:]
This the new style with the fresh type of flow
Wrist icicle, ride d-ck bicycle
Come true yo, get you this type of blow
If you wanna Minaj I got a tricycle

[Nicki Minaj]
All these b-tches, flows is my mini-me
Body smoking, so they call me young Nicki chimney
Rappers in they feelings 'cause they feelin' me
Uh, I-I give zero f-cks and I got zero chill in me
Kissing me, copped the blue box that say Tiffany
Curry with the shot, just tell 'em to call me Stephanie
Gun pop and I make my gum pop
I'm the queen of rap, young Ariana run pop

[Ariana Grande]
These friends keep talkin' way too much
Say I should give him up
Can't hear them, no, 'cause I...

[Ariana Grande]
I've been there all night
I've been there all day
And boy, got me walkin' side to side (side to side)
I've been there all night
(Been there all night, baby)
I've been there all day
(Been there all day, baby)
Boy, got me walkin' side to side (side to side)

[Nicki Minaj]
This the new style with the fresh type of flow
Wrist icicle, ride d-ck bicycle
Come true yo, get you this type of blow
If you wanna Minaj I got a tricycle
