Album: Positions (2020)

Songfacts®:

  • Ariana Grande concludes her Positions album with this romantic R&B ballad about how love can smooth away perceived imperfections.

    Ooh, 'cause nobody ever loved me like you do
    I'd love to see me from your point of view


    Grande wishes she could switch positions with her romantic partner so she can see herself through his POV (point of view). Then she'd be able to understand why he loves her so much, despite her flaws.
  • It is widely believed that real estate realtor Dalton Gomez is the understanding lover Grande is singing about on this one. The pair quarantined together during the COVID lockdown, and here the singer is giving us an insight into her newfound happiness with her boyfriend.
  • Positions finds Grande mostly in the company of longtime collaborators. She penned this song with her go-to writing partner Tayla Parx and her regular producer Tommy "TBHits" Brown. Mr. Franks (Blackpink's "Ice Cream," Justin Bieber's "Holy") and Oliver "Junior" Frid (Little Mix's "Sweet Melody") also assisted with the production.
