This song centers on Ariana Grande questioning her boyfriend's true intentions for being with her.
Say you want me anyway, do ya? You can handle all this fame, can ya? Like me just the way I are
The guy may or may not be using Grande for her fame and fortune.
So who is Ariana addressing? Many fans have speculated the track concerns the singer's relationship with comedian Pete Davidson. The pair got engaged in June 2018, but ended their relationship four months later. Certainly their romance boosted Davidson's public profile; it could be that Grande is throwing some shade at him for using her to develop his career.
Cover on a magazine in just two weeks "Boy to Watch", ain't he just, just too sweet? Now he ain't even got time for me I only see him on the big screen
Is Grande saying that Davidson used their relationship to get to a certain point of celebrity, before chucking her?
The song was released on November 1, 2019, along with the rest of the soundtrack of the 2019 comedy action film Charlie's Angels. Grande served as an executive producer for the soundtrack, and lent her vocals to five of the tracks in total.
Grande wrote the song with Savan Kotecha, Max Martin and Ilya Salmanzadeh. The same four also penned "Don't Call Me Angel" for the Charlie's Angels soundtrack, along with Miley Cyrus and Lana Del Rey.
