"Pink Champagne" is an unreleased song by Ariana Grande that was intended for her debut album, Yours Truly. It was first announced by her through a contest on her Twitter. However, when Yours Truly was released, "Pink Champagne" was not on the album. Instead, Grande released the song when she reached 10 million followers on Twitter as a thank-you gift for her fans. The song was not released as a single from any of her albums nor was it released as a digital download.

Background[]

On October 1, 2013, Grande reached 10 million followers on Twitter, and to celebrate, she posted a video on her YouTube channel, thanking her fans and ending the video with the final version of the song. In the video, she mentions how grateful she is for all the love and support she has gotten from her fans. She describes the song as a "fetus" song because she recorded it when she was much younger than she had been when she recorded it, at 17. Furthermore, she knew that her fans were disappointed when it didn't make it to the first album, which was why she released it.

On October 10, 2013 X Factor group Girl's United performed a cover, releasing a video.[6]

A demo of Grande's version with a slightly different instrumental and alternate vocals leaked on January 18, 2020.[7] On February 20, 2023, a demo for the cover leaked.

Live performances[]

In February 2012, Grande performed this song in her concert at The Roxy,[8] at the House of Blues in San Diego,[9] and in Downtown Disney.[10] She then performed it at the Big Fresno Fair on October 13, 2012.[11]

She performed the song multiple times during The Honeymoon Tour, however lip-synced through many of the performances of the song, and it was likely that this was because the song was not released as a single and she did not memorize the lyrics.

Trivia[]

Lyrics[]

[Verse 1]
Every day I'm grinding
I don't even get a weekend
I've been living my life in black and white, no sleeping
So tonight we're gonna flip it
Like in a New York minute
We're gonna hail a cab and don't look back once we get in it

[Pre-Chorus]
Lemme hear you say, ooh, ooh
Can't keep it bottled up
Lemme hear you say, ooh, ooh
Can't keep it bottled up

[Chorus]
Make it pop, like pink champagne in the purple rain
We're gonna paint, paint, paint the city
We're gonna show off all our pretty
Pretty, in a pink champagne
Let 'em know our names
Screaming so loud, they'll hear us in L.A.
We're popping, like pink champagne (aye, aye)
Popping, like pink champagne (aye, aye)
Popping, like pink champagne

[Post-Chorus]
Make it pop like, make it pop like
Make it pop like, make it pop like, make it pop like

[Verse 2]
We don't need no guest list, everybody's invited
I'm saying, "Even if you can't get in, we'll dance outside it"
We're gonna make this bubble
We'll carbonate some trouble
When the line gets flat, gotta take it back to another level

[Pre-Chorus]
Lemme hear you say, ooh, ooh
Can't keep it bottled up
Lemme hear you say, ooh, ooh
Can't keep it bottled up

[Chorus]
Make it pop, like pink champagne in the purple rain
We're gonna paint, paint, paint the city
We're gonna show off all our pretty
Pretty, in a pink champagne
Let 'em know our names
Screaming so loud, they'll hear us in L.A.
We're popping, like pink champagne (aye, aye)
Popping, like pink champagne (aye, aye)
Popping, like pink champagne

[Post-Chorus]
Make it pop like, make it pop like
Make it pop like, make it pop like, make it pop like

[Breakdown]
Make it pop like, make it pop like
Champagne...

[Chorus]
Make it pop, like pink champagne in the purple rain
We're gonna paint, paint, paint the city
We're gonna show off all our pretty
Pretty, in a pink champagne
Let 'em know our names
Screaming so loud, they'll hear us in L.A.
We're popping, like pink champagne (aye, aye)
Popping, like pink champagne (aye, aye)
We're popping, like pink champagne
Pink champagne in the purple rain
We're gonna paint, paint, paint the city
We're gonna show off all our pretty
Pretty, in a pink champagne
Let 'em know our names
Screaming so loud, they'll hear us in L.A
We're popping, like pink champagne (aye, aye)
Popping, like pink champagne (aye, aye)
We're popping, like pink champagne
