"Blazed" (stylized in all lower case) is the second track from Ariana Grande's fourth studio album, Sweetener. It features American rapper, singer and producer Pharrell Williams.[1] It was released through Republic Records on August 17, 2018.

Background

The song was first teased on November 28, 2016, via Instagram with the lyrics “I will never let you go”.[2]

This track was first hinted at with lyrics in a picture that Grande posted on Instagram on April 24, 2017.[3][4]

In a scene from the "No Tears Left To Cry" music video, released on April 20, 2018, what appears to be a partial track list for Grande's album, Sweetener, was displayed. Grande confirmed "Blazed" and the collaboration with Pharrell on May 30, 2018.[1] On July 15, 2018, Grande started posting some of the tracklist on Instagram confirming that "Blazed" was the second track on the album.[5]

Critical reception

Dennis Hinzmann, from Out, described the track as a "reminiscent of an early 2000s Whitney Houston, with Grande keeping the vocals light and airy."[6] The Guardian's Alim Kheraj praised Pharrell's production saying it's "luscious and renewed".[7]

Lyrics

[Intro: Pharrell Williams & Ariana Grande]
There is somethin' between us, I can see it right now
Your magnetic demeanor, that's something can't be found
I thought that I was dreamin' 'til my love came around
Now I just come on over, show you how we get down
(Shawty, you can get blazed, blazed, blazed, blazed)

[Verse 1: Ariana Grande]
I can't believe that you are here
I can't believe it's happening
What are the odds that you'd appear?
The universe so vast to me
Seven billion is on the Earth
Could've been anywhere, but you're here with me
Should I play Lotto? What's it worth?
I must be on, so clear to me

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Once I have you, I will never let you, never let you
Once I have you, I will never let you, never let you go
Never let you, never let you go
Never let you, never let you go
Never let you, never let you go
Never let you

[Hook: Pharrell Williams & Ariana Grande]
There is somethin' between us, I can see it right now
Your magnetic demeanor, that's something can't be found
I thought that I was dreamin' 'til my love came around
Now I just come on over, show you how we get down
(Shawty, you can get blazed, blazed, blazed, blazed)

[Verse 2: Ariana Grande]
Hey
Look at you, love, you are the same
You have a light you cannot hide
Yes, you may have a different face
But your soul is the same inside
I don't care who is listening
Cause they be making fun of this on TV
They wouldn't laugh if they were inside my past life with you and they were me

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Once I have you, I will never let you, never let you (Never let you, never let you)
Once I have you (Once I have you), I will never let you, never let you go (I will never let you, never let you go)
Never let you, never let you go (Never let you, never let you go)
Never let you, never let you go (Never let you, never let you go, oh)
Never let you, never let you go (Never let you, never let you go, yeah)
Never let you

[Bridge: Pharrell Williams & Ariana Grande]
Don't think that it cannot happen, cause it can, ha
(Shawty, you can get blazed)
Sleep if you want, and wake up in love again
(Shawty, you can get blazed, blazed, blazed, blazed)

[Outro: Ariana Grande & Pharrell Williams]
Once I have you, I will never let you (I will never let you), never let you
Once I (Once I) have you (Have you), I will (I will) never let you, never let you go (Never let you go, o-oh)
(Shawty, you can get blazed, blazed, blazed, blazed)
Never let you, never let you go (Never let you go, baby)
Never let you, never let you go (Never let you go, oh, yeah)
Never let you, never let you go (Never let you go, hey)
Never let you
