"Like That" (stylized in all lowercase; commonly known as "Do You Like That" or "Jada") is an unreleased song by Ariana Grande that was intended for the deluxe edition of her fifth studio album, Thank U, Next.

There are over 10 versions of this song that were bounced in the Pro Tools session, the 12th most finalized version was leaked February 5, 2023. The first open verse and second open verse (which are both segmented differently, and the second only having its acapella shared at the time) leaked April 18, 2023.

Background[]

The first snippet of the song was leaked sometime in August of 2019, when the seller was looking to sell the song. In 2021, a new snippet leaked on a now deleted website used for selling unreleased music. Many fans assumed this song was called "Jada".

Over a year after the second snippet leaked, a third snippet leaked on July 22, 2022. Soon after, a fourth snippet leaked after someone played a snippet of the song on a discord call that was secretly recorded and sent out to the public.

On February 5, 2023, a few higher quality snippets of the song were leaked. A group buy was planned, but the seller's thread disappeared without any notice. It was later revealed that they had privately bought the song and were trying to re-sell it. After two weeks of privately owning the song, someone convinced the buyer to leak it.

A screenshot of the "Like That" Pro Tools session surfaced on July 2, 2023.

The final non-open verse version leaked along with the full session on January 4, 2024. However, most of the files in the session are corrupted.

The bounced files are as follows (in bold and underline are the files that we have currently):

Trivia[]

  • Ariana had noticed the snippets of the song circulating on Twitter due to a user who had posted the song's snippets on there and she responded by teasing some lyrics of the song by tweeting "he will if you won't get you a Jada." The tweets were soon later deleted.[1]
  • The song title is confirmed to be "Like That", but many fans prefer to call the song "Jada", as it was originally known by that at first.
  • The lyrics of the song are sexually charged. It’s also about reversed roles in a relationship.
  • There are many different bounced files that haven't leaked yet due to file corruptions within the session.
  • The Pro Tools session of the song confirmed that it was originally called "Do You Like That" as some of the original masters were named this way.
  • There was a theory over on Twitter that Tate McRae's song "Think Later" samples "Like That", but in reality it samples "Bad Girls" by M.I.A.
