positions - Ariana Grande

The Experience: Never need no (no), no one else, babe… Ariana has found the one whose presence gives meaning to all she does and even leads her to do things she never would have done before just to please her partner.

The Vibe: Devotion. Desire.

The Topic: Relationships. Boundaries.

The Tension: I have my boundaries and I demand respect (This some sh-t that I usually don't do) VS. But I get tired of always saying no (But I get tired of running f-ck it, now I'm running with you).



Music video: Ariana Grande has been elected president of the United States and she and her cabinet are popular and govern the nation according to their own rules; yet after hours when she is alone we see a different side of her in which there seems to be no one she is close to in her personal life.

The Meaning of positions: The song features an interesting double tension. The lyrics showcase the tension between Ariana’s desire to be her authentic self and her desire to please her partner, sexually and otherwise. But in the music video a partner never enters the picture. Instead we see a seemingly self-sufficient head of state whose closest friends are her dogs. It makes one wonder… now that Ariana has made it to the top is she dreaming about having someone to share it with?

Ask yourself: Are there any limits to what you will or won’t do in a relationship? How firm are they?

Album:  positions (2020)

LYRICS:

Heaven sent you to me
I'm just hoping I don't repeat history

Boy I'm tryna meet your mama
On a Sunday
Then make a lotta love
On a Monday (Ah, ah)
Never need no (No)
No one else, babe
'Cause I'll be

Switching the positions for you
Cooking in the kitchen and I'm in the bedroom
I'm in the Olympics way I'm jumping through hoops
Know my love infinite nothing I wouldn't do
That I won't do, switching for you

Perfect, perfect
You're too good to be true (You're too good to be true)
But I get tired of running
Fu-k it, now I'm running with you (with you)

Said boy I'm tryna meet your mama
On a Sunday
Then make a lotta love
On a Monday (Ah, ah)
Never need no (No)
No one else babe
'Cause I'll be

Switching the positions for you
Cooking in the kitchen and I'm in the bedroom
I'm in the Olympics way I'm jumping through hoops
Know my love infinite nothing I wouldn't do
That I won't do, switching for you
Cooking in the kitchen and I'm in the bedroom
I'm in the Olympics way I'm jumping through hoops
Know my love infinite nothing I wouldn't do
That I won't do, switching for you

This some sh-t that I
Usually don't do (Yeah)
But for you I kinda
Kinda want to
'Cause you're down for me
And I'm down too
(And I'm down too)
Yeah I'm down too
Switching the positions for you

This some sh-t that I (Yeah)
Usually don't do (Don't do)
But for you I kinda
Kinda want to
Cause you're down for me
And I'm down too

Switching the positions for you
Cooking in the kitchen and I'm in the bedroom
I'm in the Olympics way I'm jumping through hoops (Jumping, jumping)
Know my love infinite nothing I wouldn't do
That I won't do, switching for you
Cooking in the kitchen and I'm in the bedroom
I'm in the Olympics way I'm jumping through hoops
Know my love infinite nothing I wouldn't do
That I won't do, switching for you
