Ariana Grande Released Her New Song "Boyfriend" And Here's What You Need To Know

    Ariana is back with a brand new single featuring Social House and it's a bop.

    Ariana Grande is blessing us once again, dropping her new single "Boyfriend" on Friday morning. Spoiler alert: It's a bop.

    The single features her frequent collaborators Social House, who are also behind Ariana's previous chart toppers "Thank U, Next" and "7 Rings".

    And because Ariana is the gift we absolutely do not deserve, she dropped the music video for "Boyfriend" too. It's a whole cinematic journey, with stunts, a bow and arrow, and a lot of hair.

    Taking to Twitter after the song's release, Ariana started answering fan questions about the inspiration behind the song. Of course, the whole thing is relatable AF.

    "People want to feel love but don’t want to define their relationship," Ariana said in response to a fan who asked what inspired the song.

    well, i feel like this song 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. 🌫 https://t.co/28CfLoJseu

    "We wanted to make something uplifting that captures that feeling of being afraid to take the leap," Ariana continued. "But also how it feels to have a crippling crush on someone."

    right ? we wanted to make something uplifting that captures that feeling of being afraid to take the leap & trust, being afraid of being hurt or feeling like you won’t be enough for that person ... but also how it feels to have a crippling crush on someone. 🖤 #Boyfriendtonight https://t.co/IHQ3cRC9iy

    Bops with substance — my new favourite genre of music.
