Pink Champagne

Album: Not released on an album (2011)


  • Ariana Grande recorded the demo for this doo-wop-inspired song when she was 17. Despite its popularity, the cut didn't make Yours Truly, but the songstress promised her diehard Arianators that when she hit 10 million followers on Twitter she would release the studio version. Upon reaching the magic number on October 1, 2013, Ariana popped the champagne and dropped the song.
  • An official video for the song was released on June 10, 2017.
  • The song was co-written by Kesha two years after she'd first achieved fame with her hit single "TiK ToK."
