"Ain't About What You Got" is an unreleased song by Ariana Grande, that was intended for her second studio album, My Everything. After being passed on by Ariana, the song was eventually given to the cast from the show STAR.

Background

A small portion of the song was able to "leak" as the show STAR heavily used Ariana's backup vocals, which allowed for a resurrection edit to happen. Although, the edit only has the pre-chorus and chorus. The edit got deleted from youtube but there's still people who reuploaded it.

Trivia

  • Ariana recorded a demo and later reused some vocals for her 2014 single, "Problem".

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Yeah!
I heard a couple of bad things when you were with me
I used to think it was gossip I shouldn't believe, my bae
And I was going around thinking you were my baby (Oh, yeah)
Boy, you were taking the sugar from every lady (Oh, yeah)

[Pre Chorus]
Oh, it went on and on and on
Yeah, it went on for way too long
Oh, baby

[Chorus]
It ain't about what you got
It's all about what you do with it
Ain't about what you got
It's all about what you do with it
How does someone so sexy be so damn repulsive, baby?
It ain't about what you got
It's all about what you do with it

[Verse 2]
All of my ladies will hit me up saying (Yeah yeah yeah yeah)
You better open your eyes, girl
Your boy's been playing (You know)
Oh yeah
And even though on the outside, you're looking so tasty (Oooh yeah)
Well baby boy, on the inside you're nothing but shady
Na na na na na na

[Pre Chorus]
Boy, it went on and on and on
Yeah, it went on for way too long
Oh, baby

[Chorus]
It ain't about what you got
It's all about what you do with it
Ain't about what you got
It's all about what you do with it
How does someone so sexy be so damn repulsive, baby?

It's all about what you do with it\

Went on for way too long

[Chorus]
It ain't about what you got
It's all about what you do with it
Ain't about what you got
It's all about what you do with it
How does someone so sexy be so damn repulsive, baby?
It ain't about what you got
It's all about what you do with it

[Chorus]
It ain't about what you got
It's all about what you do with it
Ain't about what you got
It's all about what you do with it
How could someone so sexy be so damn repulsive, baby?
It ain't about what you got
It's all about what you do with it
