|“||The song is just so well-written. I didn't know it would come out like that. It came out pretty extraordinary. When I was doing it, it was right up my alley.||”|
– Macy, on "Leave Me Lonely"
|“||Long story short: I went to meet with a writer name Wendy Goldstein. She’s the head of A&R at Republic Records, the label that Ariana’s on. I just went in to play her stuff. They were just in the middle of finishing the album, and they had that 'Leave Me Lonely,' and at the time, the person who wrote it was just singing on it, just to show whoever was gonna sing it how it would go, and so it was kind of a demo. And Wendy asked me to do it, and said ‘Let me check with Ariana,’ and then two days later we were in the studio and I went and cut it.||”|
