"Keep It Cute" (stylized in all lowercase; also known as "Keep It Cool" or "Voodoo") is an unreleased song by Ariana Grande that was intended for her fourth studio album, Sweetener.

Background[]

The first snippet of this song was leaked on June 26, 2023, by the song's seller and was tilted "ARIANA 4", also known for leaking both "Fantasize" and "True Story". The second snippet leaked on July 2, 2023, when the group buy reached halfway.

Two days later on July 4, 2023, the full song leaked along with its full sessions and a solo demo version of "Bad To You" made by Grande during Sweetener.

The next day on July 5, 2023, the final version of the song leaked with the original file name being "Keep It Cute 1.4_1-05", meaning that the name was changed from "Keep It Cool" to "Keep It Cute" before being scrapped. Despite it being the final, the bridge is still unfinished with mumbles, even though it's the last version they had worked on.

Trivia[]

  • This song is almost finished only having eighteen seconds of unintelligible mumbles.
  • The first snippet of this song leaked on June 26, 2023, on Ariana Grande's 30th Birthday.
  • In the sessions, there is an unbounced 1.4 file, indicating that the song was renamed to "Keep It Cute" before the original title was scrapped.
  • The song shares many lyrical similarities to "Got Her Own" from Dangerous Woman.
    • The lyrics "I buy my own drinks (Mmm, baby). Me and my girls, and we keepin' it, keepin' it cute" is a similar lyric reference to "Me and all my girls keep it lit when we come through. We can buy a table in the bar if we want to" from "Got Her Own".
  • Many people had thought this song was a scrap from the Barbie album because of a fake YouTube remix.[1][2][3]
  • This song bears some interesting parallels and references to the original solo version of Nobody that Grande made for Sweetener.
    • This song is most likely what inspired Ariana to make Nobody. The storylines between the two songs are very similar.
  • The song's title is inspired by a phrase Grande used to say a lot similarly to "Thank U, Next", and you can even hear her say it in an interview going through the belongings in her handbag after pulling out a bottle of hairspray.[4]

Lyrics[]

[Verse 1]
Don't want your name
Don't gimme your number
Wouldn't waste your energy (Ah, yeah)
And if you catch my gaze
Don't be thinkin' it's deeper
It's not that way-ay-ay, oh, yeah

[Pre-Chorus]
Hands off my body
Just came to party
I buy my own drinks
Me and my girls, and we keepin' it, keepin' it cute

[Chorus]
I got my baby, and he love me like he should
When I get home, I know he'll give it to me good
He gonna come through, don't need no new-new
He mixed some dick, added love, with some voodoo
I got my baby, he's the best I ever had
You wanna talk, I'll keep tellin' you that
Hе gonna come through, don't need no new-new
Hе like the tightest and I like what he do

[Post-Chorus]
Yeah, and he keepin' it, keepin' it cute
