"Voodoo Love" is a song by Ariana Grande meant for her debut album, Yours Truly (originally titled Daydreamin'). The official audio of the song, along with the original "Honeymoon Avenue", was released on August 2, 2016 through her SoundCloud account.[1]

Background Edit

"Voodoo Love" is one of Ariana's first original songs. She released a preview of this song on her Keek on November 8, 2012[2] and later played the full version on her live chat on November 12, 2012.[3] However, Ariana did not officially release the song as a single at this time although many fans knew about it. Allan Peter Grigg, Pebe Sebert, and Ariana wrote the song together. Ariana also performed this song in the stage production A Snow White Christmas which had the lead role in.[4] Ariana sang this song in a live chat in December 2013.[5]

On November 6, 2015, Ariana posted on Snapchat that she would be releasing the long-awaited studio version of "Voodoo Love" as well as the original version of "Honeymoon Avenue" that same week.[6] Several days later, Ariana apologizes to fans for the delay because she was still deciding what to do with the song. In February 2016, Ariana shut down rumors that "Voodoo Love" would be on Dangerous Woman but promised she would release it by the end of the year.[7]

Lyrics Edit

 
[Verse 1]
I wanna mix a potion up
Make a special drink for you, mmm-hmm
Just a little sip and you're never
Gonna know what hit you

Yeah, when I'm through
Oh, yeah

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Now I'm not talking 'bout movies
Don't need no happy end
I just wanna make you love me
And stay through thick and thin

I'm just gonna use some magic
Might feel a little drunk
And if you try to leave me
I'll lock you in my trunk

[CHORUS]
I'm gonna witch you
I'll stick a pin right in you
My voodoo's so addicting
Three silver spoons of Brandy Wine
Just a frog and a little thyme
And, baby, you'll be mine
With my voodoo love, aw yeah
With my voodoo love, aw yeah-yeah

[Verse 2]
Boy, I really knew
You were the one
The moment that
I saw your eyes

Mmm-hmm

Strong and wise
And sweet and quiet
Yeah, you're just my type
Mmm-hmm

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Now I'm not talking 'bout movies
Don't need no happy end
I just wanna make you love me
And be my shiny prince

I'm just gonna use some magic
Might feel a little high
But we'll be so enchanted
And you'll feel so alive

[CHORUS]
I'm gonna witch you
I'll stick a pin right in you
My voodoo's so addicting
Three silver spoons of Brandy Wine
Just a frog and a little thyme
And, baby, you'll be mine
With my voodoo love, aw yeah
With my voodoo love, aw yeah

[Bridge]
I always get
Just what I want
And boy, I really
Want you now

So just say yes
Can't second guess
The power!
Of my voodoo love

My voodoo love
My voodoo love!

My voodoo love!!

[CHORUS]
I'm gonna witch you
I'll stick a pin right in you
My voodoo's so addicting
(My vodoo la-la-love)
Three silver spoons of Brandy Wine
Just a frog and a little thyme
And, baby, you'll be mine
(Baby, you'll be mine! you'll mine)
With my voodoo love, aw yeah
(With my voodoo love, with my voodoo love)
With my voodoo love, aw yeah
(With my voodoo love, with my voodoo love)
