Trivia[]

  • The song features background vocals from T-Pain's demo.
  • This song is a sample interpolation of Salt-N-Pepa's 1990's song "Let's Talk About Sex".
    • Grande's song was most likely scrapped due to the song being used by Cheat Codes that released "Sex" in February 2016, also sampling Salt-N-Pepa's song.
  • Ariana uses and says the word "sex" 85 times throughout the song and swears 8 times.
  • The demo was made in the same session as "Strong Enough" and "On Top Of Everything".
    • All three of the songs were recorded during the early Sweetener sessions.

Lyrics[]

[Intro: Ariana Grande]
What you gon' do without my sex?
Are you missin' it yet?
You too busy with that chick that you just met
What you gon' do without my sex?
You just trying to forget the way
The way I fuck you good
But you just up, and left
What you gon' do without my sex?

[Chorus: Ariana Grande & T-Pain]
What you gon' do without my sex?
Yeah, what you gon' do without my sex?
(Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex)
Let's talk about sex, baby
Let's talk about you, what you gon' do without my sex?
(Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex)
Let's talk about sex, baby
Let's talk about you, what you gon' do without my sex?

[Verse 1: Ariana Grande]
You're such a bitch
How could you fall in lovе with her?
I hope she brеaks your fucking heart
I hope you never cum again
Don't text me shit
Don't even waste your breath
You shoulda thought about one thing before you left
What you gon' do without my sex?
You're gonna go crazy I bet
'Cause every time that I was on top of you
Told me I'm the best
What you gon' do next
You ain't gon' get no text from your ex
'Cause I don't even care
Boy, you got a tiny dick, so next

[Chorus: Ariana Grande & T-Pain]
What you gon' do without my sex?
(Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex)

[Verse 2: Ariana Grande]
You stupid boy
What are you ever gonna do?
Without me taking care of you
I guess that promo got to you
Your head got crazy big
But your head sucks
Make you feel like a million bucks
But fuck the checks
And fuck the rest

[Chorus: Ariana Grande & T-Pain]
What you gon' do without my sex?
