“Obvious” by Ariana Grande
On this song Ariana is singing to someone like a new boyfriend. And the title alludes to the fact that she is so smitten by him that the singer feels it should be “obvious” to the addressee how she feels. And relatedly, she wants him to adopt a carefree approach to their relationship. In other words, he does not have to go out of his way to impress her. Rather when the songstress is indeed feeling someone like she does him, she does not need gifts or any type of special attention from her partner in order to remain loyal.
The songwriting team behind this tune consisted of at least seven songwriters, including Grande and Ryan Tedder.
“Obvious” is the penultimate song on the playlist of Positions, the Ariana Grande album Republic Records put out on 30 October 2020.
