Ariana Grande likes to think of herself as a powerful businesswoman. Whether she’s shading Mariah Carey in a video game or getting ready for her upcoming world tour, she’s making moves and cutting deals. Now, a project from Ariana’s past has surfaced online. A version “This One’s For You,” the official song of the 2016 UEFA European Championship for soccer, has leaked featuring a demo with Ariana’s vocals on it. And the timing is a little suspicious.
The leak comes just as David Guetta, the track’s producer, is set to premiere a documentary about the song’s process. David is a French DJ who’s worked with Ariana in the past. He teased “This One’s For You: The Film” on Instagram as the leaked track started to make the rounds on social media.
In the song’s final version, Ariana’s demo vocals are replaced by Swedish singer Zara Larsson. Ariana didn’t walk away from her deal with the 2016 Euro empty-handed, though. She ended up headlining the tournament’s opening night concert.
Listen to Ariana’s demo of “This One’s For You” below.
