About Focus

"Focus" is a song recorded by American singer Ariana Grande. It was released on October 30, 2015 by Republic Records, and was originally intended to be the opening track as well as the lead single off Grande's third studio album, Dangerous Woman (then called Moonlight). "Dangerous Woman" replaced it as the lead single; the song was later removed from the standard-edition track listing, and was included as a bonus track on the album's Japanese version. The song was written by Grande, Savan Kotecha, Peter Svensson and its producers, Ilya Salmanzadeh and Max Martin. "Focus" features horns (saxophone, trumpet and trombone), with cowbells and handclaps as percussion. It was noted as musically similar to Grande's 2014 song, "Problem". The song received generally mixed reviews from music critics. Some praised Grande's vocals and the song's brassy production, and others criticized its similarity to "Problem". "Focus" debuted at number seven on the US Billboard Hot 100, with 113,000 downloads in its first week. It was Grande's sixth top-ten single, and her first unaccompanied by another artist. The song also reached the top ten in Canada, Australia, Greece, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom. By January 2016, "Focus" sold 544,000 copies in the United States and was certified platinum by the RIAA.

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

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

Focus on me

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

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

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
