"Hate That You Made Me Love You" (stylized in all lowercase; also known as "Why Would You") is an unreleased song by Ariana Grande that was intended for her fourth studio album, Sweetener.

Background[]

The song was first mentioned in the seller's Discord, selling this song to only trustworthy buyers. Afterwards they posted an image on a leak site for unreleased music, also stating that they were selling the song, with minimal information.

The only information revealed was that the song was allegedly from the Dangerous Woman era, produced and fully recorded after the album was renamed, being a solo track, in addition to being the first known outtake after the album's renaming. On September 22, 2022, the song was then sold.[1]

The first snippet leaked on February 16, 2023. The full fourth version was leaked on March 3, 2023. On April 6, 2023, an alleged snippet of the final version appeared. On May 22, 2023, a higher quality file of the fifth leaked alongside with the seventh version.

The full session leaked on January 21, 2024. Even though the seventh version is still unfinished with an open verse, it’s the last version they worked on.

Trivia[]

  • This song was initially claimed to be recorded during the Dangerous Woman sessions, but the leaker who leaked the two demo files later confirmed that it was actually recorded for Sweetener.
  • "Why Would You" is an alternative title found in the song’s Pro-Tools, suggesting that Ariana was undecided on what the final title of the song should be before the song was scrapped.
  • This song sounds similar to Leave Me Lonely from Ariana's third album Dangerous Woman.
    • The line "Hate that you own my mind, and stole my pride, and took my heart too" bears an interesting similarity to the line "Is it love when you stole my peace of mind?" from Leave Me Lonely.
  • On March 3, 2023, a fan account for Ariana posted the song on their page, and in-result, one of the producers and song writer Tommy Parker saw and had commented on the post and said that it "Was great working on this".[2]
    • Following in that same post on the fans account comment section, Tommy Parker was replying to someone’s question and confirmed that he was one of the singers singing the operatic voice on the song.
    • He also revealed that he was one of the writers that worked on "Leave Me Lonely (Reprise)" from the Dangerous Woman Tour.
  • The instruments used in the earlier versions of the song are the same ones used in "In The Moment" and "Needy", possibly inspiring her fifth studio album, Thank U, Next.

Lyrics[]

[Verse]
I hate your eyes
Cause when they look into mine, mine, mine
They make me blind, blind, blind
I hate your lips
Cause when you put them on me, me, me
They make me weak, weak, weak

[Pre-Chorus]
No, this is not, this is not what I wanted
Oh, but you got, but you got your claws in
No way to stop, I can't stop, there's no stopping now

[Chorus]
Hate that you made me love you
Last thing I wanted to do
Hate that you made me need you
Need you so bad
Hate that you own my mind, and stole my pride, and took my head too
Why did you do it, babe
Why did you, you, you
Why did you, you, you

[Verse]
I hate your eyes
Cause when they look into mine, mine, mine
They make me blind, blind, blind
I hate your lips
Cause when you put them on me, me, me
They make me weak, weak, weak

[Pre-Chorus]
No, this is not, this is not what I wanted
Oh, but you got, but you got your claws in
No way to stop, I can't stop, there's no stopping now

[Chorus]
Hate that you made me love you
Last thing I wanted to do
Hate that you made me need you
Need you so bad
Hate that you own my mind, and stole my pride, and took my head too
Why did you do it, babe
Why did you, you, you
Why did you, you, you
