That was my dilemma in putting the original tracklist together, it was kind of like, the hardest decision for me was whether or not “test drive” or “love language” was gonna fill that spot and I loved how it ended up, I wouldn’t change anything about it really.

"Love Language" (stylized in all lowercase; originally titled "Love Languages") is the eleventh track from Ariana Grande's sixth studio album, Positions. It was released on October 30, 2020 through Republic Records. This song was confirmed eleventh track of Positions on October 24, 2020, through her social media accounts.[1]

Background[]

In the song, Ariana is trying to learn her partner’s love language that way she can be better, while expressing that she loves that they understand her. The full session leaked on January 5, 2024.

Audios[]

Chart performance[]

"Love Language" debuted at #75 on the Billboard Hot 100 during the chart week of November 14, 2020.[2]

Trivia[]

  • Grande was planning to make the outro its own interlude, but "failed to write more than what was released". Therefore, it remained as an outro.[3]
    • On March 27, 2023, during a mass leak of many songs, "Home", the full interlude version leaked.
  • At the end of the song, the line "I ain't tryna sign no lease / I'm just gon' make you my home" presumably alludes to her ex-husband, Dalton Gomez, who is a real estate agent.
  • Tommy Parker and Grande started writing this track together on January 1st, 2020.[4]
  • The song was originally titled "Love Languages".
  • The lyric "Been a minute since I've had something so sweet", might’ve been a reference to her fourth album, Sweetener.

Lyrics[]

[Verse 1]
Ooh, I know you probably thinkin' what's the use
I promise it's been little things that you do
That make me wanna give it all to you
You know I do, baby

[Pre-Chorus]
You soothe me
You hold it down with every word you speak, oh babe
Baby
Been a minute since I had something so sweet

[Chorus]
If you're gonna keep speaking my love language
You can talk your shit all night
You the medication when I'm feeling anxious
That's the kind of shit I like
Teach me how to love you
I'm not learning what ain't right
I want you to keep speaking my love language
Baby, talk your shit all night

[Verse 2]
Why would I double back and do the same thing twice?
Or question something that I can't deny
Left my baggage at the door, I'll claim you'rе mine
All mine

[Pre-Chorus]
You soothe mе
You hold it down with every word you speak, oh babe
Baby
It's been a minute since I had something so sweet
Mmm, oh hey

[Chorus]
If you're gonna keep speaking my love language
You can talk your shit all night
You the medication when I'm feeling anxious
That's the kind of shit I like
Teach me how to love you
I'm not learning what ain't right
I want you to keep speaking my love language
Baby, talk your shit all night

[Bridge]
Baby, pardon my French, but could you speak in tongues?
Never lost in translation 'cause you know what I want, boy
Treat it just like Givenchy (Givenchy), it's expensive to taste
Ain't no need to remind ya, it's AG in your face

[Chorus]
If you're gonna keep speaking my love language
You can talk your shit all night
You the medication when I'm feeling anxious
That's the kind of shit I like
Teach me how to love you
I'm not learning what ain't right
I want you to keep speaking my love language
Baby, talk your shit all night

[Outro/"Home"]
Head over my shoes like woah
Know you like an inside joke
Running 'cause you're just my speed
'Less you want it in slo-mo (In slo-mo)
I'm not what you had before ('Fore)
Your ex-girlfriend don't want no smoke (Smoke)
I ain't tryna sign no lease
I'm just gon' make you my home
