[Intro: Iggy Azalea]
Uh huh It's Iggy Iggz
I got one more problem with you girl
Aye


[Verse 1: Ariana Grande]
Hey baby, even though I hate ya
I wanna love ya, I want you
And even though I can't forgive ya
I really want to, I want you
Tell me, tell me, boy, babe
Why did you leave me?
Cause even though I shouldn't want it
I gotta have it, I want you


[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Head in the clouds
Got no weight on my shoulders
I should be wiser

And realize that I've got

[Chorus x2]
One less problem without ya
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less, one less problem


[Verse 2: Ariana Grande]
I know you're never gonna wake up
I gotta give up, but it's you?
I know I shouldn't ever call back
Or let you come back, but it's you
Every time you touch me
And say you love me
I get a little bit breathless
I shouldn't want it, but it's you


[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Head in the clouds
Got no weight on my shoulders
I should be wiser
And realize that I've got

[Chorus x2]
One less problem without ya
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less, one less problem

[Verse 3: Iggy Azalea]
Smart money bettin' I'll be better off without you
In no time I'll be forgettin' all about you
You sayin' that you know, but I really, really doubt you
Understand my life is easy when I ain't around you
Iggy Iggy, too biggie to be here stressin'
I'm thinkin' I love the thought of you more than I love your presence
And the best thing now is probably for you to exit
I let you go, let you back, I finally learned my lesson
No half-steppin', either you want it or you just playin'
I'm listenin' to you knowin' I can't believe what you're sayin'
There's a million you's baby boy, so don't be dumb
I got 99 problems but you won't be one
Like what
!

[Bridge: Ariana Grande]
One less, one less problem
One less, one less problem

[Pre-Chorus: Ariana Grande]
Head in the clouds
Got no weight on my shoulders
I should be wiser
And realize that I've got


[Chorus x4]
One less problem without ya
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less problem without ya
I got one less, one less problem

    I think that Ariana has realised that in her past relationships the boy is not always worth it because they may cheat on you lie hurt you by abusing you or any other way. She basically talks about her being problem free without this guy because she finally feels free without this guys. Guys are like vultures and they scavenge on whatever they find appealing to them. Ariana Grande basically understands what girls go through every single day. Some girls try and change themselves for a guy they like which causes problems. Ariana you are beautiful talented smart and you should know that not every guy is worth you. Keep writing your awesome and inspiring songs and keep being awesome. I also love the fact that Iggy Azalea is in your song because she is the perfect example of who you should follow because her songs have a background and a message to them. I am absolutely in love with this song and I will keep listening to it just to know that I got one less problem without him. I love and leave you with these words: listen to this song because it has definitely changed my life and made me realise I don't need A man to make me happy!

    This song basically means the guy she thought wouldn't leave, left. The guy she thought she couldn't live without her is living. The song is about the guy and how he gave her problems. He left her, but she knows it isn't a big deal because she can live on and just do things he kept her from doing. Ariana is an amazing singer aswell as writer. She is strong enough as is, you doesn't need to pick up wights that are too heavy A. K. A. "The Guy"

    I think this song means she is in love with a guy and he left her but she knows he is not worth it but she still wants him. And she has enough problems and she does not want him to be one. And this song is basically about a guy.

    This song is the bomb! What she is trying to say is that she is sad that jai is gone and happy at the same time. Recently, Ariana Grande was with Nathan Sykes. She broke up with him some days ago and now she is back with jai. Let's start at the beginning of the problem: ok so jai accused Ariana of cheating on him with the other guys that were in her music videos. Then she denied it and broke up with him. Then, she got together with Nathan Sykes and then, she made her song problem. Obviously the song is about jai because she's realizing that now that he's gone she has one less problem without him. And that she should be more wiser about the choices that she is going to make or already made. That is the end of that. But now jariana is back together again and are as happy as can be. Thank Jesus! Phew that was a lot to say, tada!

    These people may be singing their feelings. Ariana Grande might be singing a song that she has one less problem with, say a boyfriend or something. She may have broken up with him or fallen out with a friend and now she has one less problem to worry about. I think it is good to sing what is happening in their life around them because it is better than making something up that may not be as good as what has happened in real. If you know what I mean. Post more things, I will be back to check to see if anyone else has posted anything familiar.
