Ariana Grande - bloodline (Audio)

"Bloodline" (stylized in all lowercase) is the fourth track from Ariana Grande's fifth studio album, Thank U, Next.[2] It was released on February 8, 2019 through Republic Records.

Background Edit

The song was confirmed on Instagram on January 22, 2019.[2]

On January 23, 2019 Grande said that this song is about "wanting somebody but not enough to have them in your bloodline".[3]

The record features a sound bite from Marjorie Grande, Ariana's grandma, in which she is talking about a hearing aid. However, Ariana cut it down so it sounds like she is talking about sex. Ariana also stated that she used this sound bite because Nonna is the "matriach of the bloodline".[4]

Chart performance Edit

On the week ending February 23, 2019, the song debuted at number 22 on the US Billboard Hot 100.[5]

Live performances Edit

The song was initially a part of the setlist of Grande's Sweetener World Tour, which began on March 18, 2019 but has since removed it since the Washington show on June 21, 2019.

Lyrics Edit

[Intro: Marjorie Grande]
Because I'm trying to do the best I can
And they can't find something to satisfy me, look

[Verse 1: Ariana Grande]
Mmm, yeah, yuh
Even though you're bad for me, I know
You're the one that I'm thinkin'
Got me feelin' so incredible
Would you mind maybe linkin'?

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Love me, love me, baby
Are you down? Can you let me know?
Love me, thank you, leave me
Put it down, then it's time to go
Get it like you love me
But you don't, boy, it's just for show
Take it or leave it, you gotta take it or leave it, like uh

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Don't want you in my bloodline, yuh
Just wanna have a good time, yuh
Ain't no need to apologise, no
But you gon' have to let this shit go
Don't want you in my bloodline, yuh
Not tryna make you all mine, yuh
Ain't no need to apologize, no
But you gon' have to let this shit go, yeah

[Post-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Yeah-eh-eh
Yeah-eh
Yeah, yeah, yuh

[Verse 2: Ariana Grande]
No, we won't be talking the next day
I ain't got nothin' to say
I ain't lookin' for my one true love
Yeah, that ship sailed away

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Love me, love me, baby
Are you down? Can you let me know?
Love me, thank you, leave me
Put it down, then it's time to go
Get it like you love me
But you don't, boy, it's just for show
Take it or leave it, you gotta take it or leave it like uh

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Don't want you in my bloodline, yuh
Just wanna have a good time, yuh
Ain't no need to apologise, no
But you gon' have to let this shit go
Don't want you in my bloodline, yuh (Don't want you in my)
Not tryna make you all mine, yuh (Not tryna make you)
Ain't no need to apologize, no (Ain't no need to, yeah)
But you gon' have to let this shit go, yeah

[Post-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Oh, yeah
Yeah-eh-eh
Yeah-eh
Yeah, yeah, yeah

[Bridge: Ariana Grande]
Say I know what you want, what you want from me
I know what you think, what you think you see
I know what you looking for, but I'm complete
I know what you need, but it won't be me
I know what you want, what you want from me
I know what you think, what you think you see
I know what you looking for, but I'm complete
I know what you need, but it won't be me (But it won't be me)

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Don't want you in my bloodline, yuh (Don't want you, baby)
Just wanna have a good time, yuh (Just tryna have a good time)
Ain't no need to apologize, no (No)
But you gon' have to let this shit go (Yeah, yeah)
Don't want you in my bloodline, yuh
Not tryna make you all mine, yuh
Ain't no need to apologize, no
But you gon' have to let this shit go, yeah

[Post-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Woo
Yeah-eh-eh, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah-eh-eh
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah yeah
