Ariana Grande has once again found herself in the spotlight. This time, it’s not for an official release, but for an unexpected turn of events involving one of her unreleased songs. The song, titled “Fantasize” by her fans, surfaced on Spotify under the pseudonym “Adriana Venti” and has been making waves on the charts, amassing millions of streams.


Ariana Grande’s Song Goes Viral After Fan Leaks It Online

While Grande may not have anticipated this unexpected turn, her fans are relishing the opportunity to listen to her hidden gem. Grande’s unreleased track “Fantasize” started gaining traction when it went viral on TikTok. As fans and TikTok users began sharing the catchy tune, it quickly became a sensation.

Despite Grande’s initial displeasure at the song’s leak, “Fantasize” has surged in popularity on Spotify. Under the alias “Adriana Venti,” the song has garnered over 1.3 million streams. It also had more than 300,000 daily streams as of the time of this writing. This unexpected success has left fans both ecstatic and bewildered.

Grande expressed her dissatisfaction with the leaked song. She clarified that “Fantasize” was originally written for a comedy sketch about a girl group and was merely a demo. Grande urged fans to stop spreading leaks, a sentiment shared by many artists who cherish the creative process.


Arianators, Grande’s fans, have mixed reactions to “Fantasize.” Some see this as a testament to Grande’s undeniable talent, with the song garnering millions of streams even in its unfinished form. They believe she has the potential to break records if she chooses to release it officially. Others, however, are disappointed that the leak may have strained the artist-fan relationship. Especially since Grande even lashed out at those responsible for the leak.

Why is Ariana Grande’s Song “Fantasize” Not on Spotify Anymore?

An avid Grande fan managed to acquire an unofficial version of the unreleased track and uploaded it to Spotify, which led to a series of events that unfolded thereafter. Despite the song’s rapid rise in popularity, accumulating more than a million streams and even charting in the Philippines, Spotify took decisive action by removing “Fantasize” from its platform.

This development left fans with numerous questions, prompting speculation about the reasons behind the song’s sudden removal. One plausible explanation for Spotify’s action revolves around copyright and licensing concerns. Unauthorized uploads of unreleased songs can infringe upon copyright laws and licensing agreements.


Such violations pose legal risks not only for the individuals responsible for uploading the content but also for the streaming platform itself. The removal of “Fantasize” could be a preemptive move to avoid potential legal consequences associated with hosting unofficial and copyrighted material.
