"'Oh, Darling" is an unreleased song by Ariana Grande that was intended for her debut album, Yours Truly (then titled Daydreamin). (Unreleased Icon listen)

Background[]

The very first snippet of the song surfaced in an online forum called "PopHatesFlops" on December 25, 2018, being posted by one of the members as a small Christmas gift.[1]

A couple of months later on June 4, 2019, a second snippet surfaced, with information being posted on another website called "fotpforums.com" by a different user.[2] A few more snippets surfaced over the years but their whereabouts were and still are unknown.

Four years later, a 'seller' offered to do a group buy for the song on February 12, 2023. However, it turned out to be a scam, and was soon cancelled. A couple of 'group-buys' for the song were offered throughout the year of 2023, but each time they failed to provide proof of the song.

Later that same year, a rumor began to spread that this song was not sung by Grande due to false information, but the rumors swiftly got debunked once the full track leaked.

Towards the end of the year on December 26, 2023, the song leaked in full almost exactly five years later.

Trivia[]

  • This song samples Skype's old ringtone.
  • This song is most likely about Grande's ex boyfriend Jai Brooks, whom she dated in 2012, and was in an on-and-off long distance relationship with until their official split in 2014.
  • This song may have been based off of Soulja Boy's song "Kiss Me Thru The Phone".
  • The producer of the song is still unknown, however their tag and supposed location is known.
  • There were rumors going around that the Skype sound was edited in by the original leakers, and that the song was sung by a girl named Kelly Lopez, and not Grande, however they were both switfly debunked when the song leaked in full.
  • The song leaked almost exactly five years later, one day after Christmas.
  • The lyrical content is similar to the unreleased track "Communicate" intended for Positions despite being recorded years before.

Lyrics[]

[Intro]
(Harvards)

[Verse 1]
Oh darlin', I've been in and out of town
I've been missin' you around
Won't you come and see me now?
Oh darlin', I've been missing your lips
Miss your hands on my hips
Wanna tell you what I miss

[Pre-Chorus]
Wanna kiss you, wanna kiss you, but I can't though
So I'ma look at you, look at you on a camera
And even though I know you can't blow out the candle
I wanna celebrate your birthday with no cake but I still love you like

[Chorus]
Ooh, my computer can't do all the things I want you to (Hey!)
I only want you
Ain't nobody in this town
That can come and put it down, put it down like you (Hey!)
Wish you could come and see me
T-T-Tell me that you need me
Just like I need you (Hey!)
And make me go "Oh, oh"
('Cause I love you, like)

[Verse 2]
Darlin', I've been working too much
I've been thinking 'bout your touch
T-Turn it on and hit me up
And I want ya
I wanna kiss you, wanna see you
Wanna tell you that I need you
Let me show you that I need you

[Pre-Chorus]
Wanna kiss you, wanna kiss you, but I can't though
So I'ma look at you, look at you on a camera
And even though I know you can't blow out the candle
I wanna celebrate your birthday with no cake but I still love you like

[Chorus]
Ooh, my computer can't do all the things I want you to
I only want you (Hey!)
Ain't nobody in this town
That can come and put it down, put it down like you (Hey!)
Wish you could come and see me
T-T-Tell me that you need me
Just like I need you (Hey!)
And make me go "Oh, oh"
('Cause I love you, like)

[Outro]
Uh, huh
Uh, ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah
(Na-na-na-na-na-na-na)
(Na-na-na-na-na-na-na)
