Background[]

"Lady Marmalade" is a song originally recorded by the girl group Labelle for their 1974 album "Nightbirds."[1] The song was later covered by Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mya, and Pink for the soundtrack of the 2001 film "Moulin Rouge!" The song is known for its upbeat and catchy melody and its suggestive lyrics, which describe a group of women known as "lady marmalades" who work in a New Orleans brothel and are looking for wealthy men to support them. "Lady Marmalade" has been widely interpreted as a celebratory anthem of female empowerment and sexual liberation, and its catchy melody and suggestive lyrics have made it a classic of pop music.[2] In a memorable performance during her 18th birthday party in 2011, Grande took on the iconic track with a little help from LaBelle herself.[3]
