About Popular Song

"Popular Song" is a song by Lebanese-British recording artist Mika, released as the second single in the United States from his third studio album, The Origin of Love. The song features American singer Ariana Grande and is included on her debut album, Yours Truly. The track was written by Mika, Priscilla Renea, Mathieu Jomphe and Stephen Schwartz, and produced by Mika and Greg Wells. The radio version featuring Ariana Grande was produced by Jason Nevins. It was released as a promotional single on December 21, 2012. The song is an updated cover of the original version, based on the song "Popular" from the musical Wicked. The album version of the song features vocals from Priscilla Renea, and features mature language. The single version replaces Renea with Ariana Grande, removes the mature language, and modifies the instrumental arrangement and tempo to create a version which heavily links to Mika's former hits, "Grace Kelly" and "We Are Golden". The version with Ariana Grande, produced by Jason Nevins, is the main version which was officially released.

La la, la la
You were the popular one, the popular chick
It is what it is, now I'm popular 'ish
Standing on the field with your pretty pompons
Now you're working at the movie selling popular corn
I could have been a mess but I never went wrong
'Cause I'm putting down my story in a popular song
Said I'm putting down my story in a popular song

My problem, I never was a model
I never was a scholar,
You were always popular
You were singing, all the songs I don't know
Now you're in the front row
'Cause my song is popular

Popular, I know about popular
It's not about who you are or your fancy car
You're only ever who you were
Popular, I know about popular
And all that you have to do, is be true to you
That's all you ever need to know
Catch up, cause you got an awful long way to go
Catch up, cause you got an awful long way to go

I was on the lookout for someone to hate
Picking on me like a dinner plate
I hid during classes, and in between them
Dunk me in the toilet now its you that cleans 'em
You tryin' to make me feel bad with the things you do
It ain't so funny when the joke's on you
Uh, the joke's on you
Got everyone's laughing, got everyone clapping, asking
How come you look so cool?
'Cause that's the only thing that I've learned at school
Said that's the only thing I've learned at school

My problem, I never was a model,
I never was a scholar,
But you were always popular,
You were singing, all the songs I don't know
Now you're in the front row
'Cause my song is popular

Popular, I know about popular
It's not about who you are or your fancy car
You're only ever who you were
Popular, I know about popular
And all that you have to do, is be true to you
That's all you really need to know
Catch up, cause you got an awful long way to go
Catch up, cause you got an awful long way to go

Popular, I know about popular
It's not about who you are or your fancy car
You're only ever who you were
Popular, I know about popular
It's not about who you are or your fancy car
You're only ever who you were
Popular, I know about popular
And all that you have to do, is be true to you
That's all you really need to know
