"Let Me Love You" (abbreviated as "LMLY") is the sixth track from Ariana Grande's third studio album, Dangerous Woman. It features rapper Lil Wayne. It was released through Republic Records as the second promotional single from the album on April 18, 2016.[1]

Background[]

On January 6, 2016, Grande posted a picture on Snapchat of the song board.[2] One of the songs were cut off, and only the letters "LM" could be seen. When the pre-orders for Dangerous Woman went up on March 11, 2016, "Let Me Love You" was confirmed as one of the tracks from the album.[3]

During an interview on Ryan Seacrest on March 11, 2016, Grande stated that this was the first song recorded for the album. Four days later on March 15, 2016, in an interview, she called it one of her favorite songs on the album. She also revealed that it’s "slower, sexier and darker". "Let Me Love You" was also made with the Mimu Gloves.

On March 18, 2016, Grande and a few other of her dancers held a live stream on Twitter, where she played the first minute of the song.[4] One week later on March 28, 2016, Grande posted multiple snapchats of the same snippets she shared in the previous live stream, along with one new snippet, and a string sample from the song "I Don't Care".

On April 17, 2016, Grande initially released the song in three countries. The next day, the song was officially released worldwide and on all platforms.[5]

Lyrics[]

[Verse 1: Ariana Grande]
I just broke up with my ex
Now I'm out here single, I don't really know what's next
But I ain't even trippin', I'ma chill and sit back
And I know they will be comin' from the right and the left, left, left
I just broke up with my ex
You're the one I'm feelin' as I'm layin' on your chest
Good conversation got me holdin' my breath
And I don't normally say this but goddamn you the best, best, best

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
And if it feels right, promise I don't mind
And if it feels right, promise I'll stay here all night

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ove you, you
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ove you, you
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ove you, you
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ove you, you

[Verse 2: Ariana Grande]
As I'm layin' on your chest
I'll be out here thinkin' bout it, boy, it's just to guess
But someone just keeps tellin' me I'm better than the rest
Might tryna rush you, but goddamn I'm a mess, mess, mess

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
And if it feels right, promise I don't mind
And if it feels right, promise I'll stay here all night

[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ove you, you
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ove you, you
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ove you, you
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ove you, you

[Bridge: Lil Wayne]
I said, "Girl, you need a hot boy"
She said, "You need to stop f****n' with them thots, boy"
I said, "You need a real n***a," she said "Yes, Lord
And what you need your ex for? I'm triple X, Lord"
Okay, Ariana, my lil mama, goodbye to the good girl
My ex trippin', it's no Biggie, I Tupac shook her
I'm laid up with my new thing
She lay her head on my new chain
Then the mood change
My name change from Lil Wayne to Oooh Wayne
Oh Lord, she grindin' on this Grande
Oh Lord, I'm drownin', I'm gonna need that coast guard
And when it comes to that n***a, I give her amnesia
She just lookin' for love
She says she single and I'm her feature, oh my God

[Chorus: Ariana Grande & Lil Wayne]
You're no good, but it's time I love you, baby
(Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ove you, you)
Tunechi, Moolah baby
(Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ove you, you)
But it's time I love you, yeah, yeah, ah
(Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ove you, you)
She's just lookin' for love
I'm lookin' for love
(Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ove you, you)
She's just lookin' for love
You're lookin' for love, baby
(Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ove you, you)
She's just lookin' for love
(Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-love you, you)
I'm lookin' for love, baby
She's just lookin' for love
Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, mmm, yeah
She's just lookin' for love

[Outro: Lil Wayne & Ariana Grande]
I'ma give her that love
He'll give me that love
She's just lookin' for love
Boy, I'm lookin' for love, baby
I'ma give her that love
I'ma give her that…
I'ma give her that…
