“love language” is the eleventh track on Ariana Grande’s 2020 album ‘Positions.’ The title of the song is a reference to the different ways couples can express love towards each other, including and besides words.
Ariana Grande announced her sixth studio album ‘Positions‘ seemingly out of nowhere on October 14, 2020. A week later, the pop star released the lead single and the title track of the album titled ‘positions.’ The album releases on October 30, 2020. This is Grande’s follow-up project to her 2019 heartbreak album ‘Thank U, Next.’
In the song, Ariana Grande praises her lover for being everything she ever wanted. His words, actions, looks, behavior, and more speak a love language Ariana has never seen before.
Listen to “love language” by Ariana Grande
In the first verse of the song, Ariana Grande sings that the little things that her lover does, makes her heart melt. And she has not felt this way for quite some time now. So, she is grateful and happy.
He might not be buying her gifts and pampering her with sweet nothings every day. But there could be other ways that he shows her love and affection. We do get to know that he is a straight-up cure for Ariana’s anxiety. Whatever he does in such situations, too, falls as a form of love language.
In the bridge of the song, Ariana Grande shouts out to Givenchy, a French luxury fashion brand, and the 2003 romantic-comedy movie ‘Lost in Translation.’ The entire verse is also a subtle reference to oral sex (“speak in tongues,” “expensive to taste” and “AG in your face”).
