Ariana Grande - Greedy

[Intro]
Greedy
You know that I'm greedy for love

[Verse 1]
Boy, you give me feelings, never felt before
I'm making it obvious by knocking at your door
I know that I'm coming tonight
You know I'm coming tonight
Don't want to deny it anymore

[Pre-Chorus]
Been in this state of mind
Been in this state of mind
Been in this state of mind, oh yeah

[Chorus]
Baby, you got lucky cause you're rocking with the best
And I'm greedy
Cause I'm so greedy
Cause I'm so
I ain't talking money, I'm just physically obsessed
And I'm greedy
Cause I'm so greedy
Cause I'm so greedy, ooh
You know that I'm greedy for love
You know that I'm greedy for love
Cause I'm so greedy, ooh
You know that I'm greedy for love
You know that I'm greedy for love
Cause I'm so

[Verse 2]
I don't need a phone call
Got nothing to say
I'ma tell you when it's over
Got no games to play
You know that I'm coming tonight
I know I'm coming tonight
I just need to get this out the way, oh baby!

[Pre-Chorus]
Been in this state of mind
Been in this state of mind
Been in this state of mind, oh yeah

[Chorus]
Baby, you got lucky cause you're rocking with the best
And I'm greedy
Cause I'm so greedy
Cause I'm so
I ain't talking money, I'm just physically obsessed
And I'm greedy
Cause I'm so greedy
Cause I'm so greedy, ooh
You know that I'm greedy for love
You know that I'm greedy for love
Cause I'm so greedy, ooh
You know that I'm greedy for love
You know that I'm greedy for love
Cause I'm so

[Bridge]
Greedy, I'm greedy, I'm greedy, I'm greedy
I'm greedy, I'm greedy, I'm greedy, I'm greedy for love
Greedy, I'm greedy, I'm greedy, I'm greedy
I'm greedy, I'm greedy, I'm greedy, I'm greedy for love

[Chorus]
Baby, you got lucky cause you're rocking with the best
And I'm greedy
Cause I'm so greedy
Cause I'm so
I ain't talking money, I'm just physically obsessed
And I'm greedy
Cause I'm so greedy
Cause I'm so greedy, ooh
You know that I'm greedy for love
You know that I'm greedy for love
Cause I'm so greedy, ooh
You know that I'm greedy for love
You know that I'm greedy for love
(You know I'm)
Cause I'm so greedy, ooh
You know that I'm greedy for love
(Oh, don't you know I'm greedy?)
You know that I'm greedy for love
(Oh, don't you know I'm greedy?)
Cause I'm so greedy, ooh
You know that I'm greedy for love
You know that I'm greedy for love
Cause I'm so

“Greedy” is a song recorded by American singer Ariana Grande. The track appears on Dangerous Woman, her third studio album. The song was written by Max Martin, Savan Kotecha, Alexander Kronlund, and Ilya Salmanzadeh (known mononymously as Ilya), and produced by Martin and Ilya. The song was released on May 14, 2016, as an instant gratification track to accompany digital pre-orders of Dangerous Woman. Grande debuted “Greedy” on Apple Music the day after "Everyday". “Greedy” was written by Alexander Kronlund, Ilya Salmanzadeh, Savan Kotecha and Max Martin who also produced the song with Salmanzadeh. The horn arrangement was provided by Jonas Thander who also performed saxophone, the musicians Karl Olandersson and Stefan Persson contributed with trumpet, Martin played the keyboards, percussion, guitars, drums and programming with Salmanzadeh. The song was recorded in two studios: MXM Studios located in Los Angeles, California and Wolf Cousins Studios in Stockholm, Sweden. The mixing for "Greedy" was performed by Serban Ghenea at MixStar Studios, Virginia Beach, Virginia, with engineering for the mix by John Hanes. It was mastered at Sterling Sound in New York City, New York by Tom Coyne and Aya Merrill. “Greedy“ received critical acclaim from music critics. Billboard's critic Katie Atkinson described the song as a "throwback trifle, which casts Grande as a lady Bruno Mars." While Christopher R. Weingarten from Rolling Stone calls the song "uptown dunky of nonsense". Annie Zaleski from The A.V. Club commented: "The horn-peppered highlight “Greedy” in particular is an exuberant R&B-pop earworm on which she has a blast indulging her inner gospel diva. A reviewer from Sputnikmusic call it "slick and incredibly fun" and wrote the song "does all it can to save an otherwise middling second half of the album'. Reviewing the album Dangerous Woman, Digital Spy's Lewis Corner described it as "a shiny disco-pop number with a groove so infectious the World Health Organization would have good grounds to label it an epidemic. And there's good reason for that because the moral of this story is that Ariana has caught all the feels for her new boyfriend and she wants more, more, more." Auin Moreland of Pitchfork considered "Greedy" one of the highlights of the album, the editor described it as a romp that announces that Grande truly shines when she is given center stage. Reviewing the song for Nylon, Jenna Igneri wrote positively: "Greedy" is everything you'd expect from the petite pop princess. It's upbeat and catchy, and very Ariana Grande, as she belts out lyrics such as, "You know that I'm greedy for love." There's no doubt that it'll have you dancing all summer long." To promote Dangerous Woman, Grande performed "Greedy" on Good Morning America as a part of the "Central Park Summer Concert", during the show she also performed "Dangerous Woman" and "Be Alright". She also performed the song as part of her album showcase for Vevo on May 21, 2016. Grande performed the song during the Summertime Ball 2016. The song was included on the set list of her Dangerous Woman Tour during its performance, during which counterfeit money featuring Grande's face hit the stage. Drag queens Nina Bo'nina Brown and Valentina lip-synced to the song during the ninth season of the American reality competition television series RuPaul's Drag Race. In the lip-sync, Valentina wore a mask over her face as she did not know the words, and was stopped by RuPaul and later eliminated, with Bo'nina Brown staying. On December 29, 2017, the South Korean girl group Twice performed the song at the 2017 KBS Song Festival. Only four out of the nine members performed (Nayeon, Momo, Jihyo and Chaeyoung). In 2020, the song received a resurgence on TikTok more than 4 years after its release, being used in many videos.
