It's a really cute song and I love the sound of it because it's so bipolar and crazy. When I'm singing it's my vibe and then when Sky comes in it's completely his vibe. And they're both very different vibes so it's kind of like a messy concoction of weirdness but I love it.

–Ariana Grande talking about "Do You Love Me"[1]

"Do You Love Me" is an unreleased song by Ariana Grande that was intended to be the second single for her debut album, Yours Truly, at the time still called Daydreamin. The song features LMFAO's Sky Blu and The Dap Kings.

Background[]

During multiple interviews in 2012, Ariana had stated that she was going to release two singles before the album's release, with "Do You Love Me" being the second single to be released.[1]

Grande first put out a video on her YouTube channel with producer Matt Squire called “Studio Memories: finishing Do You Love Me” on June 8, 2012.[2]

Three months later on September 1, 2012, Grande released a snippet of the song and "Daydreamin'" in celebration of 3 million followers on Twitter.[3]

The early demo of the song was first leaked on December 3, 2012. Grande said that it was just a rough draft, and that it didn't have the horns and less rapping like the final version of the song. The final leaked almost ten years later on May 17, 2023, long after the album's making. It features horns, a slightly different instrumental, and a new verse from Ariana and Sky Blu that replaces the rap in the first pre-chorus along with a slightly different outro.

Lyrics[]

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Do you love me? (Do you love me?)
Do you love me? (Do you love me?)
Oh, do you love me? (Do you love me?)
Now that I can dance
Watch me now! Drop

[Bridge: Sky Blu]
I can mash potato
I can do the twist
Now tell me, baby
Do you like it like this?
Ariana, and your boy Sky Blu
I gotta tell you something, baby
I think I love you

[Verse 1: Sky Blu]
Born to party, born to rock
Big bad, baby, we're on top, uh
Rolling in the cadi
Hilowitz making hits like grandaddy
Bust a move, get in the groove
Baby girl, I'm into you
Show me what you can do
I thought you knew
You’re good as long as you with Blu

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Whenever you’re around me boy
You make me lose control
I can’t help myself
I don’t want no one else
B-b-b-b-baby boy, I need to know

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]

[Verse 2: Sky Blu]
Got the money (yeah), got the passion (uh)
On the dance floor, I'm Michael Jackson
Time for some action, here we go
Sky Blu on the stereo

She doing it Grande, that's what's up (oh)
Her plus me, you can add it up
Oh, you'll never get enough of that

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Tell me if it's meant to be
I'd give my love, but it ain't for free
So watch your mouth, talk is cheap
Save your cash, spend time with me
Say dance, dance, young romance
You bad boy better take a chance
On a first date you can hold my hand
But nothing more
Baby boy, I need to know

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Do you love me? (Do you love me?)

Oh, do you love me, boy? (Do you love me?)
