boyfriend Lyrics Meaning
[Verse 1: Ariana Grande]
Ariana Grande starts the first verse by telling the whole world that she is a train wreck. The theme of the song is basically a post-breakup song.
Ariana Grande doesn’t want to remember her ex and all the good memories she had had with him.
Even though they aren’t together, Ariana doesn’t like the fact that her ex has already moved on. In her verse, she says he cannot date anyone even though they aren’t together.
The lyrics in the first verse of ‘boyfriend’ reciprocate toxic meanings, definitely bad for Ariana Grande.
But it’s okay because it is Ariana Grande! (Maybe not okay)

She says, if she can’t have what she wants, aka her ex, he cannot have what he wants either. The song somehow manages to attack every broken-hearted people in the world!
[Chorus: Ariana Grande]
In the Chorus section of the song ‘boyfriend’, the lyrics repeat the same theme from above.
Ariana says she doesn’t want to be in a relationship but she doesn’t want her ex to be with someone else either.
[Verse 2: Mikey]
In the second verse of the lyrics of ‘boyfriend’, Mikey tells Ariana Grande that he loves the way they get jealous if both of them see someone else, meaning, they’re still in love.
He tells her that he is a train wreck too. They both clearly love each other, it’s evident!
[Verse 3: Scootie & Ariana Grande]
In the lyrics of the third verse of ‘boyfriend’, the song references “having issues” with “NASA” from ‘thank u, next’ debut album.
The singers say they love each other but they can’t be back because of their personal issues. Even if they get back, the stress and trust issues could increase exponentially.
They are stepping far from getting back because they don’t want to deal with a lot of problems that come along with getting back together with each other.
[Bridge: Scootie, Ariana Grande, & Both]
In the lyrics of ‘boyfriend’, the singers say there is a chance that they can get back together. They would probably be committed to each other.
However, since they cannot promise the commitment, it’s better for both of them to stay casual and get jealous if someone goes out with another person.
But if Ariana is happy, then who are we to complain?
Let her do her and let’s do us.
