Ariana Grande – Focus lyrics

[Intro]
Hey

[Verse 1]
I know what I came to do
And that ain't gonna change
So go ahead and talk your talk
Cause I won't take the bait

I'm over here doing what I like
I'm over here working day and night
And if my real ain't real enough
I'm sorry for you, bae


[Pre-Chorus]
Let's find a light inside our universe now
Where ain't nobody keep on holding us down
Just come and get it, let them say what they say
Cause I'm about to put them all away

[Chorus: Jamie Foxx (Ariana Grande)]
Focus on me, f-f-focus on me
Focus on me, f-f-focus on me
Focus on me (Focus), f-f-focus on me (Focus on me)

Focus on me (Focus), f-f-focus on me (Focus on me)

[Verse 2]
I can tell you're curious
It's written on your lips
Ain't no need to hold it back
Go 'head and talk your shit
I know you're hoping that I'll react
I know you're hoping I'm looking back
But if my real ain't real enough
Then I don't know what is

[Pre-Chorus]
Let's find a light inside our universe now
Where ain't nobody keep on holding us down
Just come and get it, let them say what they say
Cause I'm about to put the mud away

[Chorus: Jamie Foxx (Ariana Grande)]
Focus on me, f-f-focus on me
Focus on me, f-f-focus on me
Focus on me (Focus), f-f-focus on me (Focus on me)
Focus on me (Focus), f-f-focus on me (Focus on me)

[Breakdown]
1, 2, 3, c'mon girls
You're gonna like it
Come on, now, now

[Pre-Chorus]
Let's find a light inside our universe now
Where ain't nobody keep on holding us down
Just come and get it, let them say what they say
Cause I'm about to put the mud away

[Chorus: Jamie Foxx (Ariana Grande)]
Focus on me, f-f-focus on me
Focus on me, f-f-focus on me
Focus on me (Focus), f-f-focus on me (Focus on me)
Focus on me (Focus), f-f-focus on me (Focus on me)
Focus on me, f-f-focus on me
Focus on me, f-f-focus on me
Focus on me (Focus), f-f-focus on me (Focus on me)
Focus on me (Focus), f-f-focus on me (Focus on me)

    It means that Ariana wants everybody to like her inside self, not the outside self and she want everybody to know what is the real her not the Ariana that is in the song and She want to tell everyone that All the people only like her outer self not inner self and she want everyone to Focus on Her Real Side.

    “Focus” is all about ignoring the haters and looking for the good in all of us. It was the first single from Ariana Grande’s upcoming third album Dangerous Woman, but was later scrapped in favor of the title track and didn’t appear on the album.

    Ari dropped a series of hints prior to the release, including a song snippet on Instagram and teasers on Twitter. Grande uploaded a vlog entitled “Focus” to her YouTube channel Honeymoon Diaries three weeks before the song’s release that spoke about its meaning.

    I’m not asking to be the center of attention. […] I literally mean “focus on me,” on what I’m all about and what I believe in. The more we focus on each other, as people and not on what we look like, not what we’re wearing, our gender, our hairstyle, our sexuality, the color of our skin, but focus on each other on a soul level. The more we realize how much we have in common, the more we listen to each other, the more one we become.
