Ariana Grande reveals new song, video for ‘Boyfriend:’ I’m a ‘trainwreck’

Ariana Grande’s latest release is titled “Boyfriend,” a one-off single with Social House, her previous collaborators and opening group on her Sweetener world tour, which is also accompanied by a vengeful new music video.

Released Friday, Grande described “Boyfriend” on Twitter as a “nostalgic bop,” closer to her R&B roots than the trap-pop of her 2019 release “thank u, next.”

“I’m a (expletive) train wreck / I don’t wanna be too much / But I don’t wanna miss your touch / And you don’t seem to give a (expletive),” Grande opens the new song, expanding on its meaning in an additional tweet, writing that the track “captures a common theme in the lives of so many people i know !”

“people want to feel love but don’t want to define their relationship & have trouble fully committing or trusting or allowing themselves to fully love someone. even tho they want to,” she added.

The song’s video shows Grande and Michael Foster from Social House wreaking havoc on various attendees of a mansion party, with Foster ripping an unlucky guy’s heart out of his chest and Grande throwing punches and shooting heart-shaped lasers out of her bra.

Social House previously provided production to Grande’s No. 1 singles “thank u, next” and “7 rings,” as well as her track “goodnight n go” from her 2018 album “Sweetener.”
