"Ain't My Fault" is a song by Swedish singer Zara Larsson. It was released on 2 September 2016, by Record Company TEN, Epic Records, and Sony Music Entertainment, as the third single from her upcoming second and international debut studio album, So Good.

BackgroundEdit

In an interview with Shazam, Larsson said about the first version of the song: "The topic is me talking to a girl about her man, and I basically stole her man, and I'm like, 'It's not my fault that I'm better you'." The song was written in a few hours with MNEK for fun and never intended as a single, but when the studio loved it, her reaction was, "Whoa whoa whoa I can't sing this." So she changed the lyrics of the song to reflect her values: "I would never be proud of stealing a girl's man and sing about it, it would be very not me."

Critical receptionEdit

Robbie Daw of Idolator stated the song is "a sexy departure from the somber dulcet tones of 'Never Forget You' and the sassy pop swagger of 'Lush Life'" and went on to call it a "Rihanna-esque banger" and a "saucy gem". Entertainment Weekly's Nolan Feeney called the song "bold" and "club-ready".

LyricsEdit

Oh my, oh my, oh my
Oh my, oh my, oh my
Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my

It ain't my fault you keep turning me on
It ain't my fault you got, got me so gone
It ain't my fault I'm not leaving alone
It ain't my fault you keep turning me on

I can't talk right now, I'm looking and I like what I'm seeing
Got me feeling kinda shocked right now
Could've stopped right now, even if I wanted
Gotta get it, get it, get it, while it's hot right now
Oh my god, what is this?
Want you all in my business
Baby, I insist, please don't blame me for whatever happens next

No, I can't be responsible
If I get you in trouble now
See you're too irresistible
Yeah that's for sure

So if I put your hands where my eyes can't see
Then you're the one who's got a hold on me
No, I can't be responsible, responsible
It ain't my fault

It ain't my fault (no, no, no, no)
It ain't my fault (no, no, no, no)

It ain't my fault you came here looking like that
You just made me trip, fall, and land on your lap
Certain bad boy smooth, body hotter than a summer
I don't mean to be rude but I look so damn good on ya

Ain't got time right now
Miss me with that "What's your name? Your sign?" right now
It's light outside, I just called an Uber and it's right outside
Oh my god, what is this?
Want you all in my business
Baby, I insist, please don't blame me for whatever happens next

No, I can't be responsible
If I get you in trouble now
See you're too irresistible
Yeah that's for sure

So if I put your hands where my eyes can't see
Then you're the one who's got a hold on me
No I can't be responsible, responsible
It ain't my fault

It ain't my fault (no, no, no, no)
It ain't my fault (no, no, no, no)

Baby, one, two, three
Your body's calling me
And I know wherever it is
It's exactly where I wanna be
But don't blame me
It ain't my fault

It ain't my fault (no, no, no, no)
It ain't my fault (no, no, no, no)
It ain't my fault (oh my, oh my, oh my)

So if I put your hands where my eyes can't see
Then you're the one who's got a hold on me
No I can't be responsible, responsible
It ain't my fault

It ain't my fault (no, no, no, no)
It ain't my fault (no, no, no, no)

It ain't my fault you got me so caught
It ain't my fault you got me so caught
Oh, well, that's too bad it ain't my fault

[Zara Larsson:]
Oh my, oh my, oh my
Oh my, oh my, oh my
Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my

It ain't my fault you keep turning me on
It ain't my fault you got, got me so gone
It ain't my fault I'm not leavin' alone
It ain't my fault you keep turning me on
I can't talk right now, I'm looking and I like what I'm seeing
Got me feeling kinda shocked, girl, now
Couldn't stop right now, even if I wanted
Gotta get it, get it, get it, when it's hot right now
Oh my God, what is this?
Want you all in my business
Baby, I insist
Please don't blame me for what ever happens next

No I-I-I-I, can't be responsible
If I-I-I-I, get you in trouble now
See you're-'re-'re-'re, too irresistible
Yeah, that's for sure
So if I put your hands where my eyes can't see
That you're the one who's got a hold on me
No I-I-I-I, can't be responsible, responsible
It ain't my fault (No, no, no, no, no, no, no)
It ain't my fault (No, no, no, no, no, no, no)
It ain't my fault

It ain't my fault you came here looking like that
You just made me trip, fall, and land on your lap
Certain bad boy smooth, body hotter than a summer
I don't mean to be rude, but I look so damn good on ya
Ain't got time right now
Missed me with that "What's your name, your sign" right now
It's light outside, I just called an Uber and it's right outside
Oh my God, what is this?
Want you all in my business
Baby I insist
Please don't blame me for what ever happens next

No I-I-I-I, can't be responsible
If I-I-I-I, get you in trouble now
See you're-'re-'re-'re, too irresistible
Yeah, that's for sure
So if I put your hands where my eyes can't see
That you're the one who's got a hold on me
No I-I-I-I, can't be responsible, responsible
It ain't my fault

[Lil Yachty:]
Where's your thot?
Called my friends like, "What you caught last night?"
If the ass right and you ask right, you might spend the night
Sitting so informal with the Sailing Team and we just might start a dinner fight
Need a white chick that's Kylie Jenner right, need a black chick that cook my dinner right
But ayy, get your bread though, snitches, 5-0
I can't kick it with no side hoe, I need that Lambo
Come through bustin' like I'm Rambo with heavy ammo
And I'm lit just like a candle, stock up like sandals (Lil Boat!)

[Zara Larsson:]
One, two, three
Your body's calling me
And I know wherever you're at
Is exactly where I wanna be
But don't blame me
It ain't my fault (No, no, no)
It ain't my fault (No, no, no)
It ain't my fault (No, no, no)
It ain't my fault
Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my

So if I put your hands where my eyes can't see
That you're the one who's got a hold on me
No I-I-I-I, can't be responsible, responsible
It ain't my fault (No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no)
No-oh-oh, it ain't my fault
No-oh-oh, no-oh-oh, no
(No, no, no, no, no, no)
It ain't my fault
It ain't my fault you got me so gone
It ain't my fault you got me so gone
Well, that's too bad, it ain't my fault
