Ariana Grande's debut, Yours Truly, was a great album full of Mariah Carey inspired R&B pop hits. Today, she's released a track that didn't make the album, called "Boyfriend Material." Check it out above.

"Boyfriend Material" was one of the first songs Grande worked on during the Yours Truly sessions back when she was only 17. It's understandable why the pop-oriented track didn't make it to the album: the twinkling bubblegum beats sound considerably different from the retro feel of her debut record. However, the song is very catchy, sweet, and innocent, and Ariana's pitch perfect vocals are on point as usual. There's even some of a doo-wop influence in the beginning of the track that sounds lovely with her cooing vocals. Ariana continues to prove that even though she's gotten her start on children's television, she's a serious artist who is a force to be reckoned with.

Ariana left this sweet message on YouTube to her fans:

a little surprise for my loves as a thank you for all of your constant love, support and dedication. i know how much y’all love this song and how disappointed you were when it didn’t make it on to my first album so i knew i had to get it to you somehow someday. this song means a lot to me and holds such a special place in my heart as it was one of the first songs i did when i started working on ‘yours truly’ when i was like 17 ….. don’t worry… you’ll get more of these oldies too as time goes on! I’m working on it for you. love you all so much. you are everything. love you.

Grande's second studio album is due out sometime this fall. She released the record-breaking lead single "Problem" a few weeks back to rave reviews. For more on Ariana Grande's music and news, check out her Zumic artist page.

Ariana Grande "Boyfriend Material" Lyrics:

Now I've been looking for someone
Trying to find the right boy to wear on my arm
I must admit it, you simply fit it
You were like a cut above the rest, that's why you're winning

And every night when I close my eyes
I can see you, my perfect type
And I never really thought my dreams would come true
Until I laid eyes on you cause you know you are

Boyfriend material, boyfriend material
That's what you're made of
It's written on your label
Boyfriend material, m-m-material
Want everyone to know you're my
Boyfriend material, boyfriend material boy
Boyfriend material, m-m-material
Want everyone to know

That you and your perfect smile are both timeless
And never going out of style
For so many reasons, you got it together
I'm catching feelings, you make me look better

And every night when I close my eyes
I can see you, my perfect type
And I never really thought my dreams would come true
Until I laid eyes on you cause you know you are

Boyfriend material, boyfriend material
That's what you're made of
It's written on your label
Boyfriend material, m-m-material
Want everyone to know you're my
Boyfriend material, boyfriend material boy
Boyfriend material, m-m-material
Want everyone to know

It's all the little things that you do make me wanna sing, yeah yeah
By the way you're talking to me
I can tell you've been listening to everything
And maybe it's the butterflies I get every time I hear your ringtone (ringtone)
And maybe it's cause every single text boy
I told myself you are the one

Boyfriend material

Cause you know you are
Boyfriend material, boyfriend material
That's what you're made of
It's written on your label
Boyfriend material, m-m-material
Want everyone to know you're my
Boyfriend material, boyfriend material
That's what you're made of
It's written on your label
Boyfriend material, m-m-material
Want everyone to know you're my
Boyfriend material, boyfriend material
Boyfriend material, m-m-material
Want everyone to know that
