Ariana Grande has recently found herself in the midst of a recurring issue plaguing the music industry—leaked demos and unreleased songs. Faced with the unauthorized sharing of her creative work, Grande took a stand to protect her artistic process and discourage the dissemination of these unfinished recordings.


Ariana Grande Asked Fans to “Please Stop Spreading Leaks”

On Thursday, June 22, Grande came across a TikTok video where a fan had shared an unreleased song, unaware that it was actually a demo, never intended for public release. Expressing her frustration, Grande swiftly commented on the video.

“Wrote this for a comedy sketch about a girl group. this was the demo i made for them,” Grande commented on TikTok. “Please stop spreading leaks. I appreciate it.”

The incident involving the leaked demo shed light on a more pervasive issue surrounding Grande’s unreleased music. These recordings, spanning from 2021 to 2022, were part of a project that ultimately remained unfinished.


Unfortunately, the leaked material found its way onto various platforms. Some individuals even created dedicated Twitter accounts solely for sharing Grande’s demos and unreleased songs. This concerning trend not only infringes upon the artist’s creativity but also compromises their ability to control the release of their work.

Leaked demos and unreleased songs have significant implications for both artists and the music industry as a whole. The unauthorized release of demos not intended for public consumption. It disregards the artist’s intentions and can hinder their creative exploration and growth.

The Leaks Upset The Singer

This wasn’t the first time Grande has acknowledged her leaked songs. In an interview with R.E.M. Beauty and Ulta Beauty in April 2023, she openly discussed the issue. With a touch of humor, she acknowledged that fans had already heard many of her “bad songs” and demos.


While Grande recognizes that it’s natural for some songs to leak, she wants the freedom to take creative risks. However, she couldn’t help but express her disappointment at the extent of the leaks. Playfully, the artist acknowledged that fans had “stolen” her unreleased music, so she’s currently “all out of secrets.”

As this incident highlights, it is essential to obtain music through official channels and respect the artist’s right to decide when their work is released. As fans and music enthusiasts, it is crucial to support artists and respect their creative boundaries.
