"Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" (stylized in all lowercase) is a song recorded by American singer Ariana Grande for her fifth studio album Thank U, Next (2019). The song was written by Grande and Savan Kotecha alongside its producers Max Martin and Ilya Salmanzadeh, with Grande serving as a vocal producer. It contains an interpolation of the song "It Makes Me Ill" by American boy band NSYNC, written by Kandi Burruss, Kevin Briggs, thus both are also credited as songwriters.[3] The track was released by Republic Records as the third and final single from the album on February 8, 2019, the same day the album was released. Its music video, directed by Hannah Lux Davis, accompanied its release the same day. "Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored" reached number one in Greece, Ireland, New Zealand, Slovakia, and the United Kingdom.
