Ariana Grande and her record company likely wanted controversy when releasing a song titled “God Is A Woman,” and they’re getting it.
The song, though, isn’t the theological treatise that you might expect. Instead, it’s a sexually suggestive symbolic song that uses religious references to compare the singer’s performance in the bedroom to God.
“You love it how I move you; you love it how I touch you; … when all is said and done you'll believe God is a woman,” she sings. “And I feel it after midnight; a feelin’ that you can't fight; it lingers when we're done; you'll believe God is a woman.”
Other controversial parts of the song include:
- “Boy, I like that you ain’t afraid; baby, lay me down and let’s pray; I’m tellin’ you the way I like it, how I want it.”
- “You different from the rest; and boy, if you confess, you might get blessed.”
- “I’ll tell you all the things you should know; so, baby, take my hand, save your soul.”
The song was released Thursday ahead of her new album, “Sweetener,” due out Aug. 17.
No all fans on her Facebook page were amused. In fact, the top-ranking comments below her post about the song were critical.
