"Shnack" (stylized in all lowercase; also known as "Party Next Door") is an unreleased song by Ariana Grande that was intended for her fourth studio album, Sweetener.

Background[]

The song first appeared in a Sweetener snippet pack, along with four other unknown songs that were "100", "Cocoon", "Pretty Girls Like Trap Music", and "Man Of Steel" on February 21, 2023.

The first (and second) writer's reference demos for the song are sung by singer SZA. They feature her vocals throughout both demos of the song, with the first being leaked on May 18, 2023. The second V2 snippet had already leaked from the Sweetener snippet pack on February 21, 2023. A new second snippet from another seller leaked June 13, 2023.

On June 15, 2023, two snippets of singers N.E.R.D. and Starrah's demo for the song leaked. On August 28, 2023, N.E.R.D. and Starrah's writer's reference leaked. N.E.R.D. and Starrah's versions is the most finalized one though, as Grande's is only a demo.

Trivia[]

  • The song is most likely unfinished since the snippet and full song only feature mumbles.
  • The original file name of SZA's reference for the song is "AG_Shnack_sza_ref_2_88bpm.mp3".
  • N.E.R.D. & Starrah’s version is a REF final version of "Shnack", which was renamed to "Party Next Door" but uses the same beat.
  • The snippet of SZA's demo two from the Sweetener snippet pack is rumored to have Ariana's harmonies over SZA's reference. Ariana is also singing one part in the song.

Lyrics[]

[Hook]
How can I keep?
How can I keep it?
How can I?

[Verse 1]
How can I keep away? Lookin' so
How can I do what you're lookin' for?
How can I tell you I love you so easy?
You believe me? Please
How can I make?
Mmm mmm, if say you need me
And in my grave would you say I've been
Been running around just to leave you
Can't even taste if I know; remeber
Waitin' for no; remember
Waitin' on you
I can taste and I don’t remember
I don’t remember waitin’ on you
You has been waitin’ for no one
Been coming from nowhere
Can I do it?
I've not be lyin' to you, baby
I'm not behind to your
And I get your; turning like that
And I'm makin' you, make you feel like it
Nevеr make you feel
Never makе you look like
Never make you taste like you, and I love
I love your taste, ooh

[Hook]
I been lookin'

[Verse 2]
I been lookin' for you
Deep in the waves, and I'm lookin' for someone to
Feel like the way that you taste and
I been lookin', I've been lurin'
And you've been sooner, then you been doopin'
And you been movin' like you were indeed to me
However you seein' me
How you, you lookin' like dat, you
Runnin' like you turn my back, mmm make you feel like that
I hesitate when you alive
And get a bit of
Feelin' like I-I-I
Am I still real to you?
Am I still?
