Ariana Grande Wiki
It’s a great song – I love it. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to keep it or not because there’s a little string sample in, but I want to take all the music out and do something different anyway. So I’m going to change that.

–Grande on Ridiculous

"Ridiculous" is an unreleased song by Ariana Grande that was intended for her sophomore album, My Everything. (Unreleased Icon listen)

Background[]

Grande initially confirmed the song on October 2013 through MTV.[1][2] She described the song as "really crazy" and "a bit all over the place", then said, "It's interesting melodically... It's more like gymnastics. It's like a weird melody and jumpy."

On October 5, 2017, the now deleted website Music Mafia leaked a fifteen second snippet of the song and were auctioning the full version starting at 0.10 BTC, (which converts to 430.40 USD). A few weeks later on October 22, 2017, the full song leaked through Picosong. A few hours later, an untagged version leaked through SoundCloud and Tumblr.

Trivia[]

  • The leaked version which Music Mafia sold is not the song's demo version with the string sample Grande talked about, it is the final version without the strings. The demo version featuring the string sample has yet to leak.
  • The song was first being auctioned, which was soon bought for 0.10 BTC by an anonymous group of people first seen chatting on Twitter.
  • It has been a common misconception that the song Miley Cyrus wrote in the shower for Ariana was "Ridiculous", but this was false as Miley had said in an interview with MTV that the song she wrote was in fact "Lighter".[3]

Lyrics[]

[Intro]
Bla- Bla- Bla- Blaq
Tuxedo
La-la, la-la, la-la, la
La-la, la-lee-la

[Verse 1]
This love that I'm feeling
Is not like another feeling I know
I can't explain it, oh
This love that you give me
Is making me feel things I don't know, no, no
Boy, you make me feel so good
You're so special, special to me
So good
You're the element I needed, hey

[Pre-Chorus]
No silver or gold can make you let you go
You take my breath away
It's like you cast a spell on me
(Ridiculous love)

[Chorus]
This is ridiculous
This is ridiculous
This is ridiculous
This is ridiculous (Oh, oh)

[Verse 2]
If I go a day without you
I know you're thinking of me
Wondering what I'm doing
Wondering what I'm thinking
I want you all to myself
Don't want nobody else
Boy, you know you're my baby, baby
All I see is you, standing right there
Looking so sexy, baby, hey
Now you got me feeling, feeling, feeling

[Pre-Chorus]
Like loving on you, and touching you
I'mma seduce you, baby, baby
It's like you cast a spell on me
(Ridiculous love) (Oh, oh)

[Chorus]
This is ridiculous
This is ridiculous
This is ridiculous
This is ridiculous (Oh, oh)

[Bridge]
I love you, you love me
We should be together
Ridiculous
Boy- boy- boy- boy, don't you know you a star?
Hope you don't wreck my heart

[Outro]
This is ridiculous
This is ri-, this is ri-
This- this-, this is ridiculous
This is ri-, this is ri-
Thi-thi-thi-thi, this is ri-
Di-di, da-da, don't go without
Di-di, da-da, don't go without
This is ri-
Di-di, da-da, don't go without
This is ridiculous
