Ariana Grande lanzó este viernes (30 de octubre) positions, álbum en el que incluye a colaboradores como The Weeknd, Doja Cat y Ty Dolla $ign. El sucesor de thank u, next (2019) llega después de sus colaboraciones con Lady Gaga y Justin Bieber abanderado por sencillos como “positions”, dado a conocer la semana pasada y 34+35”, lanzado hoy.

Sin embargo, en positions, la colaboración de Ariana Grande con The Weeknd el tema que más ha dado de qué hablar hasta ahora. Mr. Franks, Shintaro Yasuda, Travis Sayles y TBHits produjeron “off the table”, track del que no descartamos que más adelante se lance un video.

En “off the table”, The Weeknd hace una mención a “Love Me Harder” (My Everything, 2014), canción en la que ya había trabajado con Ariana Grande. También retoma un poco de “Hurt You”, colaboración con Gesaffelstein (My Dear Melancholy, 2018) y hace una breve referencia a “The Hills” (2015).

Con las líneas “If you let me in your arms/ If you let me in your heart” se presume que el canadiense responde a “Vulnerable”, de su exnovia Selena Gomez.

Por otra parte, con “I’ll wait for you/ Even though it always feels like I’ll be number two”, The Weeknd revive los sentimientos de Ariana Grande en “ghostin”, tema que retrata la época en la que estaba comprometida con Pete Davidson pero lloraba por la muerte de Mac Miller

Letra / Lyrics de “off the table”, Ariana Grande ft. The Weeknd

VERSO 1: ARIANA GRANDE

Will I ever love the same way again? (Way again)
Will I ever love somebody like the way I did you?
Never thought you’d be so damn hard to replace
I swear it don’t need to be this way
If I can’t have you, is love completely off the table?
Do I sit this one out and wait for the next life? (Next life)
Am I too cold? Am I not nice?
Might not be quite yet healed already
Should I be goin’ too steady? (Too steady)
But I just wanna know is love completеly off the table?

CORO: ARIANA GRANDE

Will you be thеre? (Will you be there?)
Can I still love you? (Can I, can I, babe?)
Not yet healed already (Not ready)
Should I be goin’ too steady? (Too steady)
Just wanna know is love completely off the table?

VERSO 2: THE WEEKND Y ARIANA GRANDE

I’ll wait for you
Even though it always feels like I’ll be number two
To someone you can’t hold anymore
If you let me in, I’m ready to give you what I couldn’t before

‘Cause I got you, girl, let me help you through it
You’re trying to fill the void with a couple boys
I can see right through it (You can see right through it)
I can you love you harder than I did before

Was in a dark place back then
I was toxic, then I was toxic to someone else
“” haunted by the hills (Oh yeah, yeah)
I couldn’t give you my all, but I will

If you let me in your arms (Your arms)
If you let me in your heart
I don’t think that love’s completely off the table

CORO: ARIANA GRANDE Y THE WEEKND

Will you be there? (Yes, I will be there for you)
Can I still love you? (Yes, I been hurt before, before)
Not yet healed already (Not ready)
Should I be goin’ too steady? (Too steady, no, no)
Just wanna know is love completely off the table?

PUENTE: ARIANA GRANDE Y THE WEEKND

So can you hold me?
If I let you, can you prove it to me? (Oh, no-no, no)
‘Cause I need you to calm me down, babe
Gotta get out of my head (Oh, woah)
Tryna be here from this bed (Oh)

Just wanna know, just wanna know, know, know, baby (Hey)
Can you touch it like you believe in it, baby? (Oh, hey)
Let me think you never gonna leave on me, baby
‘Cause I ain’t her and you ain’t him, thankfully (Baby, don’t leave)
But it’s gon’ be hard to let someone else in again (Woah)
Baby, baby (Woo-hoo)

CORO: ARIANA GRANDE Y THE WEEKND

Will you be there? (Will you be there? I’ll still wait)
Can I still love you? (I’ll still wait for you, babe, oh, no-no, no, can I still love you?)
Not yet healed already (Ooh, not ready)
Should I be goin’ too steady? (No, no, ooh)
Just wanna know is love completely off the table, baby?

OUTRO: THE WEEKND

I swear, I swear
I will wait for you whenever you need
Ooh, ooh
