Songfacts®:

  • This electric dance floor jam was produced by pop mastermind Max Martin and his co-writing and production partner Ilya Salmanzadeh. The same pair co-produced "Problem," the single that launched Grande from child star to mainstream prominence.
  • Grande penned the song with songwriters Savan Kotecha and Alexander Kronlund. She croons here of her desire for some risky, sexy love with her man, most likely her dancer boyfriend Ricky Alvarez.
  • There are references to the King of Rock 'n' Roll, Elvis Presley, and the Queen of R&B, Mariah Carey, in the hook.

    A little bit dangerous, but baby, that's how I want it
    A little less conversation, and a little more touch my body


    Grande is singing of Elvis' "A Little Less Conversation" and Mariah Carey's "Touch My Body."
  • The Hannah Lux Davis-directed video finds Grande getting intimate with her beefy bodyguard beau in the desert. Davis also directed Grande's videos for "Love Me Harder" and "Focus" (as well as her Jessie J collab "Bang Bang").

    Grande's hunk is played by America's Next Top Model alum, Don Benjamin. In the video, the tattooed bodyguard has a penchant for bandanas, much like Grande's real-life boyfriend, Ricky Alvarez.
