"In The Moment" (stylized in all lowercase) is an unreleased song by Ariana Grande that was intended for her fifth studio album, Thank U, Next.

Background[]

The first two snippets of the song were leaked in August 2019, on a leaking website used for selling unreleased songs. They also had the song "In The Moment" being for sale, alongside with "Like That" which was one of the songs the leaker was selling.

It wasn't until three years later, that some more information about the song appeared. A leaker who was selling the song for $2000 eventually sold it to an Instagram account who unsuccessfully tried to start a group buy for "My Way" when no one was selling the song. The only songs for sale at the time were "In The Moment" and "Just Because".

About one week later, the Instagram account bought the song and leaked a third snippet. Soon after, a fourth snippet leaked, and then the full song on July 9, 2022. During the mass leak that took place on March 27, 2023, the full session leaked alongside all of the demos, instrumentals and acapellas.

Trivia[]

  • This song was most likely scrapped because it didn't seem to fit the vibe Grande was going for on the Thank U, Next album.
  • The song is about falling in love and staying in the moment. It’s most likely about former ex Pete Davidson, as the song's theme seems to be referring to the controversy she had to face because of her rushing into things so fast during their relationship.
  • The song was recorded and worked on during several different studio sessions, alongside "Thank U, Next", "Confused", "Imagine", "Not Ok", "Indica", "Needy", and "Remember".

Lyrics[]

[Verse 1]
I know we just met but who cares?
I just wanna feel your lips, I'm so pressed
I don't wanna wait my whole life, wanna wait my whole life, to do what's on my mind
I don't wanna waste my whole night tryna decide whether it's wrong or right

[Pre-Chorus]
I don't care, I spend my time how I like
In my mind, I'm a billionaire
(La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la)
Said I don't care 'cause wanting you is as human nature as breathin' air, breathin' air (La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la, ooh)

[Chorus]
Let's do what we want, that shit's beautiful
Just stay where we are, right here in the moment
Do what we want, that shit's beautiful
Just stay where we are, right here in the moment

[Verse 2]
I know we just met but who cares?
I just wanna feel your lips, I'm so pressed
I don't wanna wait my whole life, wanna wait my whole life to do what's on my mind
I don't wanna waste my whole night tryna decide whether it's wrong or right

[Pre-Chorus]
I don't care, I spend my time how I like
In my mind, l'm a billionaire (La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la)
Said I don't care 'cause wanting you is as human nature as breathin' air, breathin' air (La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la, ooh)

[Chorus]
Let's do what we want, that shit's beautiful
Just stay where we are, right here in the moment
Do what we want, that shit's beautiful
Just stay where we are, right here in the moment

[Outro]
(In the moment)
