“Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” was co-written by Grande with the help of frequent collaborators Ilya Salmanzadeh and Savan Kotecha, as well as Max Martin. The 25-year-old singer samples *NSYNC’s “It Makes Me Ill” off No Strings Attached album. She quotes some lines from the boy band’s track on the bridge. It’s a banger about being thirsty and features some pretty savage lyrics.
“Break up with your girlfriend / Yeah, yeah, ’cause I’m bored / You can hit in the mornin’ (Mornin’) / Yeah, yeah, like it’s yours / I know it ain’t right / But I don’t care (Care) / Break up with your girlfriend / Yeah, yeah, ’cause I’m bored,” Ari sings on the chorus.
The accompanying music video is equally fire. The Hannah Lux Davis-directed clip features Grande involved in a steam threeway with Riverdale‘s Charles Melton and model Ariel Yasmine, who could easily be her doppelganger. In the end, Grande gets the prize, but exactly who? Watch the clip below to find out.
