Problem Lyrics

Uh huh!
It's Iggy Iggs!
I got one more problem with you girl
One less, one less!

[Ariana Grande:]
Hey baby even though I hate ya!
I wanna love ya
I want you!
And even though I can't forgive you
I really want...

    I think its about the person that hurt you and yet that person still the person you adore. "And even though i cant forgive you" see, past is being the topic.

    This song is about a woman who likes a guy even though she doesn't like that about her relationship. She says she can't forgive him but she wants to because she likes him. It's a unique relationship, but it is a personal decision.

    She loves this guy but he is bad for her and she knows, she is trying to get away (or Break Free, another song by AG) He is a Problem. And she has 99 of 'em but he won't be one anymore.

    I think this song means Ariana Grande broke up with someone who was mean to her but she still wants their love.

    He is a extreme burden and she can not wait to get rid of him and how she is way better whithout him.

    It's a love/ hate debate. The girl hates the way the guy is treating her. At the same time, she still likes him. In the end, the girl realizes when the guy isn't around, she has "1 less problem'' to deal with.

    The song isn't good for younger audiances but here Is what I think:
    She loves the way he makes her feel but he's trouble, that's one thing she likes but she know's she hates him. but she obviously want's more of "it" So it's just a tumblr of mixed emotions and really It's about a girl who know's this guy Isn't good for her but she loves the way he makes her feel
    Plus the things she's wearing, the dance moves, and Just a lot of sexual things going on...etc
    I hope this helped!

    I think that it's about this girl who likes this guy but also hates him at the same time.

    i think that the meaning of this song is that she feels unsure about this guy. she hates him but she also loves him, and she could be confused between the two feelings she has.

    This song is about a girl, who has loves a boy on one hand, But on the other hand she realy hate him and say he is a problem, in the end she say he isn't one, may she is unsure how to feel about him.

    "I think I love the thought of you more than I love your presence". Couldn't be said more perfect. "I got 99 problems but you wont be one".

    It's like a love/hate relationship, if you know what I mean. She hates him, but she wants to love him and then later she realizes she has one less problem without him!! Lol! Love this song and Ariana Grande!!!!!
