"La Vie En Rose" (translated: "Life In Pink" in French) is an unreleased song by Ariana Grande that was intended for her debut album, Yours Truly.

Background[]

The song was being played in the lobby at The Roxy Concert before she came out on stage. Grande said it was only a sample and that it would not be put onto the final album on her now-deleted ask.fm account. However, several years later, Pebe Sebert shared two studio-quality snippets of the song on her TikTok account. One of which was shared sometime in 2021, the other snippet on September 19, 2022.

Lyrics[]

[Verse 1]
[...] under the Champs-Élysées
I just wanna get, get, get in, with, with you, with you

[Chorus]
La vie en rose
I wanna live la vie en rose
Let's turn it back and take it slow
That's how we roll
Oh, I wanna live la vie en rose
Let's turn it back and take it slow
That's how we roll

[Verse 2]
Oh, I wanna live out this crush
No, no never see skies of grey
Oh, I wanna end every day just with you, with you, you
Oh, can we just get on a plane?
Go, to a romantic café?
I, just wanna drink Pink Champagne here with you, with you

[Chorus]
La vie en rose
I wanna live la vie en rose
Let's turn it back and take it slow
That's how we roll
Oh, I wanna live la vie en rose
Let's turn it back and take it slow
That's how we roll

[Bridge]
Oh, just so you know
My love is burning, burning
And just make me glow, under the fire my whole life
Know I heard "just wanna come and wreck your plans"

[Chorus]
La vie en rose
I wanna live la vie en rose
Let's turn it back and take it slow
That's how we roll
Oh, I wanna live la vie en rose
Let's turn it back and take it slow
That's how we roll
Let's turn it back and take it slow
That's how we roll
