"Let Me Love You" is the sixth track from Ariana Grande's third studio album, Dangerous Woman. It features rapper Lil Wayne. It is the second promotional single from the album.

Background Edit

On January 6, 2016, Ariana posted a picture on Snapchat of her song board.[1] One of the songs was cut off and only the letters "LM" could be seen. Fans speculated it was an acronym or an abbreviation. When the preorder for Dangerous Woman went up on March 11, 2016, "Let Me Love You" was one of the confirmed tracks.[2] This shows it was on the song board as "LMLY."

On March 11, 2016, Ariana said in an interview on Ryan Seacrest that this was the first song recorded for Dangerous Woman. On March 15, 2016, in an interview she called it one of her favorite songs on the album. She also revealed it's "slower, sexier and darker".

On March 18, 2016, Ariana and a few of her dancers held a livestream on Twitter, where she played the first minute of the song.[3] On March 28, 2016, Ariana posted multiple snapchats of the same snippets she shared in the previous live stream, along with one more, as well as a string sample from "I Don't Care".

On April 17, 2016, Ariana initially released the song in three countries. The next day, the song was officially released worldwide.[4]

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1: Ariana Grande]
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'mma chill and sit back
And I know they'll be coming from the right and the left, left, left
I just broke up with my ex
You're the one I’m feeling as I'm laying on your chest
Good conversation got me holding my breath
And I don’t normally say this but goddamn you the best, best, best

[Pre-Chorus]
And if it feels right, promise I don't mind
And if it feels right, promise I'll stay here all night

[Chorus]
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-love you, you
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-love you, you
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-love you, you
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-love you, you

[Verse 2]
As I'm laying on your chest
I'll be out here thinkin' 'bout it, boy, it's just to guess
Somethin' just keeps telling me you're better than the rest
And I ain't tryna rush you, but goddamn I'm a mess, mess, mess

[Pre-Chorus]
And if it feels right, promise I don't mind
And if it feels right, promise I'll stay here all night

[Chorus]
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-love you, you
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-love you, you
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-love you, you
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-love you, you

[Verse 3: Lil Wayne]
I said, "Girl, you need a hot boy"
She said, "You need to stop f****n' with them thots, boy"
I said, "You need a real n***a" she said "Yes, Lord
And what you need your ex for? I'm triple X, Lord"
Okay, Ariana, my lil mama, goodbye to the good girl
My ex tripping, it's no Biggie, I Tupac 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
Oh Lord, she grindin' on this Grande
Oh Lord, I'm drownin', I'm gonna need that coast guard
And when it comes to that n***a, I give her amnesia
She just looking for love
She says she single and I'm her feature, oh my God

[Chorus: Ariana Grande + Lil Wayne]
(You're no good, but it's time I love you baby)
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-love you, you
Tunechi, Moolah baby
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-love you, you
(But it's time I love you, yeah, yeah, ah)
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-love you, you
She's just looking for love
(I'm looking for love)
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-love you, you
She's just looking for love
(You're looking for love baby)
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-love you, you
She's just looking for love
Just let me lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-love you, you
(I'm looking for love baby)
She's just looking for love
She's just looking for love

[Outro: Ariana Grande + Lil Wayne]
I'mma give her that love
He gon' give me that love
She's just looking for love
Boy, I'm looking for love baby
I'mma give her that love
I'mma give her that...
I'mma give her that...
