It is the eleventh track off her debut album. The song is an updated cover of the original version, as featured in the musical Wicked. The album version of the song features vocals from the original songwriter, Priscilla Renea, and features low-level expletives, as featured in Wicked. However, the single version removes Renea and replaces her with Grande, removes the expletives, and completely changes the instrumental arrangement and tempo, to create a version which heavily links to Mika's former hits, "Grace Kelly" and "We Are Golden".
But even before she ascended to the top, Grande has always been a generous, prolific, and in-demand collaborator. Grande gives the best performance only because she takes chorus duty and sets the pace because, after all, she made the soundtrack. But Iggy Azalea is dead weight on the song, with her blaccent and school assignment-level rhymes.
