"Bad To You" is a song by Ariana Grande, Normani and Nicki Minaj from the soundtrack to Charlie's Angels, which was co-executive produced by Grande and was released on November 1, 2019.[1] The song was originally a demo by English singer Dua Lipa featuring Grande.

Background Edit

A 15-second snippet of the demo was leaked by the site Music Mafia on April 6, 2018. The song was rumored to be recorded in January 2018 when Lipa posted a selfie with Grande.[2] On June 5, 2018, a fan asked Lipa about the song, and she said that she still intended to release it.[3]

During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on December 6, 2018, Lipa was asked again if the song would ever be released and she confirmed that it wouldn't.[4]

The song was later included on the soundtrack to the 2019 film Charlie's Angels without Lipa but with singer Normani and rapper Nicki Minaj added.[5]

Lyrics Edit

[Intro: Nicki Minaj & Ariana Grande]
Hello, Charlie (Ooh)
Ariana, Normani (Ooh)
Uh, let's go

[Verse 1: Normani]
Baby, I've been feedin' the addiction
Flyin' from there and back, felt like an acrobat
Brown eyed, so I fell into submission
Eager to catch myself, like what the hell?

[Pre-Chorus: Normani]
Now we pull your chain
Just to wake you up, wake you up
Push you 'til you break
Now you're steppin' up, steppin' up, ah, ah

[Chorus: Normani, Nicki Minaj & Ariana Grande]
Why are you only good to me
When I'm bad to you?
Why are you only?
Why are you only good to me (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
When I'm bad to you?
Why are you only?
Loving you and hating you is in, depending on the day
Tell me why are you only good to me (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
When I'm bad to you?
Why are you only?

'[Verse 2: Ariana Grande]
Stopped thinking like a victim
This time, I'll throw it back
Boy, can you handle that?
Got you trippin', gave you no attention
That's when I figured out what you're about

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Now we pull your chain
Just to wake you up (Yeah), wake you up (Yeah)
Push you 'til you break
Now you're steppin' up, steppin' up, ah, ah

[Chorus: Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj]
Why are you only good to me (Hey)
When I'm bad to you?
Why are you only?
Why are you only good to me (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
When I'm bad to you? (So bad)
Why are you only?
Loving you and hating you is in, depending on the day
Tell me why are you only good to me (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
When I'm bad to you?
Why are you only?

[Verse 3: Nicki Minaj]
Mm, ayo
Why you only nice when I get bad, boy? Psha
Get back on your job like you employed, boy, psha
You know that I'm saucy, got that sauce, soy, psha
I ain't 'bout to stay up on this merry-go-round and round
'Cause we go 'round and 'round
But I don't want no clowns around me (Brrr)
I tell him, "Who is you cuffin'?"
I got him huffin' and puffin'
He keep on callin' me "baby"
Like I'm a bun in the oven
I said

[Chorus: Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, Normani, Ariana Grande & Normani]
Why are you only good to me (Oh yeah)
When I'm bad to you? (When I'm bad to you)
Why are you only?
Why are you only good to me (Oh, oh, eh)
When I'm bad to you? (When I'm bad to you)
Why are you only?
Loving you and hating you is in, depending on the day
Tell me why are you only good to me (So good, uh)
When I'm bad to you?
Why are you only?

[Chorus: Dua Lipa]
Tell me why
Are you only good to me
When I'm bad to you
Why are you only

[Verse: Ariana Grande]
Soft, thinking like a victim
Climbed out the bodybag
Right after the attack
Caught you dreaming
