"Side to Side," the fifth track off Ariana Grande's recently released LP Dangerous Woman, features Nicki Minaj and is a dancehall-inspired banger that's sure to rule the summer. The song is their third collaboration together, according to Teen Vogue

In the girl-power song, the two sing about confidently taking charge and not giving up when pursuing someone who catches their eye. 

As confirmed by Minaj's rap: "Uh, I-I give zero fucks and I got zero chill in me."

In the first verse, Grande sings: "I'm talkin' to ya/ See you standing over there with your body/ Feeling like I wanna rock with your body/ And we don't gotta think 'bout nothin' ('bout nothin')/ I'm comin' at ya/ Cause I know you got a bad reputation/ Doesn't matter, cause you give me temptation." 

After all, as Minaj reminds us, "I'm the queen of rap, young Ariana run pop." The full lyrics to "Side to Side" can be found on Genius
