"Wifee" (stylized in all lowercase; commonly known as "White Tee" or "Wifey") is an unreleased song by Ariana Grande that was intended for her fourth studio album, Sweetener.

Background[]

The song first appeared in a Discord server along with "South Africa" & "Hi", but all three songs were previously unknown at the time. A user was trying to trade the songs, leaking a 2 second snippet of each songs on March 13, 2023. The person leaked a second snippet the next day on March 14, 2023.

Three days later, a third longer snippet of the song was leaked by somebody else on March 17, 2023. The person who had leaked the snippet, leaked it due to the original person trying to scam others into thinking they had the song, but they didn’t. They only cut snippets from the longer snippet.

A week later, the full song leaked during the mass leak that took place on March 27, 2023. The next day on March 28, 2023, two more demos leaked.

The full sessions leaked on January 3, 2024, along with various other unreleased songs and sessions.

Trivia[]

  • Fans have previously called it "White Tee".
  • This final version was recorded the same day when Ariana and Mac Miller performed "My Favorite Part" live at his private concert.[1][2]
  • This song sounds similar to "Be My Baby" and "Adore" in the beginning of the starting intro.
  • The line "I know that you like me, cause you call me wifey" could've been a reference to Soulja Boy’s song "Kiss Me Thru The Phone" with one of his lines being "Baby, I know that you like me, you my future wifey". That lyric could’ve also been a sample interpretation.[3]
  • The line "while them records be playing and you sing em' to me" could be a reference to a Snapchat Ariana posted of her and Mac Miller listening to music together on a record player.
    • Milller is also seen wearing a white tee shirt in the video that Grande posted.[4]

Lyrics[]

[Intro]
Oh, yeah, uh-huh-uh

[Verse 1]
I never thought it, that I would be waking up with you on me
The love we be making, then drinking coffee
While them records be playing and you sing 'em to me
Uh-huh-uh, never thought it
That I'd be the type making bank deposits
That joint account with your last name on it
But baby this life is the shit we wanted, uh-huh-uh

[Pre-Chorus]
But I, I was made for you
Baby and you always knew
Look at how the universe came through, oh, baby

[Chorus]
I be in your white tee every night
Baby hit the lights come and hold me tight
I know that you like me, causе you call me wifey
I'm all in your white tee
I bе in your white tee every night
Baby hit the lights come and hold me tight
I know that you like me, cause you call me wifey
I'm all in your white tee

[Verse 2]
I never thought it, that we'd be the type
Holding hands and shopping
Then we unpack the bags and we sharing closets
Then we hop into bed, get my makeup on you, oh
So baby, how'd we get this way?
I ain't trying to be cliche, oh, I
I'm happy as fuck all the time, boy

[Pre-Chorus]
But I, I was made for you
Baby yeah, you always knew
Look at how the universe came through, oh, baby

[Chorus]
I be in your white tee every night
Baby hit the lights come and hold me tight
I know that you like me, cause you call me wifey
I'm all in your white tee
I be in your white tee every night
Baby hit the lights come and hold me tight
I know that you like me, cause you call me wifey
I'm all in your white tee
