Ariana Grande Taps Lil Wayne for “Let Me Love You”
There's almost a month left before Ariana Grande drops her third studio album Dangerous Woman and today we get an early listen to one of the LP's singles that features rap star Lil Wayne, "Let Me Love You."
This is definitely one of Grande's attempts at the urban market off the upcoming album as the uptempo track seems radio ready with a trap soul touch. The addition of Weezy only adds to the hip-hop energy of the song.
The signle contains some lines that might refer to her ex-boyfriend Big Sean, who she no longer wants her name associated with. "I just broke up with my ex/Now I’m out here single, I don’t really know what’s next/But I ain’t even trippin', I'm not jealous, lay back/And I know they will be coming from the right and the left, left, left," she sings at the beginning of the song.
Lil Wayne picks up with a verse about one of his old main things rapping, "My ex tripping, it's no Biggie, I 2Pac shook her/I'm laid up with my new thing/She lay her head on my new chain/Then the mood change/My name change from Lil Wayne to Oooh Wayne."
Grande's album drops on May 20 and also features Nicki Minaj on the track "Side by Side" and Future assisting on the song "Everyday."
