(+LYRICS + MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW- BREAK UP WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND, I’M BORED BY ARIANA GRANDE “THIS SONG PROMOTES LESBIANISM AND…”

Follow on IG @ogefash_july4

In as much as homosexuality (Sex with person of thesame sex) is allowed there in the country to an extent, but what has lesbianism got to do with this innocent track?  People just want to have zero reasons to do wrongs and promote illicit acts. The chorus says “Break up with your girlfriend” which clearly indicates that Ariana’s Interest is in a particular guy and not the other way round. In essence, she wants a particular guy to break up with his girlfriend so that they can be together. But in the video she first of all flirts with a boy and then moves to the girl in the latter part of the song. The song doesn’t only promote lesbianism, but also remorseless infidelity in a relationship.

As a matter of fact, the artiste says one thing and does another. As in, the track says one thing and the video does another. How you may ask? Okay, take a look at the bridge “You can say I’m hating if you want to. But I only hate on her ’cause I want you…”

What does that indicate? That she is interested in Okurin (Nwoke, Maza, Homme, Man) not Obirin (Nwaanyi, Mata, Femme, Woman)

Okay, enough of the long-winded intro, let’s quickly take a gander at the lyrics below

LYRICS TO BREAK UP WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND BY ARIANA GRANDE

INTRO

 BEATZ

VERSE 1

You got me some type of way (Hmm)
Ain’t used to feeling this way (Hmm-Hmm)
I do not know what to say (Yeah, yeah)

But you know I’m out here thinking about it

PRE-CHORUS

Then I realized she is right there                                                                                                  And I’m like “Oh my damn, this ain’t fair”

CHORUS           

Break up with your girlfriend

VERSE 2

This shit don’t always happen to me (Yeah)
Why can’t we just play for keeps? (Hmm-Hmm)
Practically on my knees (Yeah, yeah)

You can say I’m hating if you want to
But I only hate on her ’cause I want you

Break up with your girlfriend (With your girlfriend)
Yeah yeah, cause I am bored

With your girlfriend, girlfriend, girlfriend, baby, girlfriend; with your girlfriend
With your girlfriend, girlfriend, girlfriend, girlfriend; with your girlfriend

THE REVIEW

Lyrically, the song comes in two verses. The chorus “Break up with your girlfriend” was sung three times while the pre-chorus “Then I realize…” twice. The lyrics flowed well with the beat. Each line is dependent on another line to form a meaning. The lyrics are well written and arranged. Each verse has 8 lines. She sang in English.

The song arrangement– Intro- verse 1- pre chorus- chorus- verse 2- pre chorus- chorus- bridge- chorus

The song talks about the artiste’s desire for a guy to break up with his girlfriend and be with her.

BREAKDOWN OF THE SONG

In the verse 1, “You got me some type of way (Hmm)”, Ariana says a guy has got her desiring him in a way that is difficult to describe; unexplainable. She is suddenly having feelings (or she is infatuated about the guy) for some guy she knows nothing about which is unlike her.

She says after taking a gander at his face, all she feels like doing is just to sample him to know what he feels like underneath. She says she has a principle of not getting down with some guy like that but at the moment she is willing to do anything for the guy. She says her gestures and countenance give her away that the guy would no doubt be able to tell that she is truly thinking about getting down with him.

In the pre-chorus “Then I realize she is right there”, the artiste lets us know that whenever she feels like making a move; perhaps initiate a conversation with the guy by telling him to quit his relationship to be with her or to get down with her, she is unable to cause his girlfriend is always by his side of course and it is maddening

In the chorus “Break up with your girlfriend”, the artiste persuades  the guy to quit his relationship with his current girlfriend to be with her, just because she is tired of being alone. She says if he does, he can have all of her anytime or better still, he can get down (Sexual access) with her anytime like he owns her.

In the verse 2 “This shit don’t always happen to me (Yeah)” the artiste says how she feels for the guy and the longing to get down with him is not typical of her. She hopes that when she finally gets to have him, it would be permanent rather than temporary “Why can’t we just play for keeps? (Hmm-Hmm)” She is thinking about sex with him and is pleading for it. The guy has an effect on her. The way he is always singing her songs has got her longing more for him. However, she says the guy e is pretending like he doesn’t know that she longs for him, whereas his facial expression and gestures say something else; they give him away..

In the bridge,“You can say I’m hating if you want to” the artiste says she dislikes the guy’s girlfriend because she has what she wants which she feels is unfair. She also says she has feelings for the guy and belives they would be good together. She believes she is far better than his girlfriend

WHAT DOES THE SONG “BREAK UP WITH YOUR GIRLFRIEND” BY ARIANA GRANDE MEAN?

Like the word break up means to disentangle from someone or to end a relationship. The song basically talks about the artiste’s plea with a particular guy she so much desires to end his relationship with his current girlfriend just to be with her.

 

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

Break up~To split, Disentangle; Bored~To be tired of doing a particular thing.

Some type of way~ Having a feeling that you developing feelings for someone

Hit it~To have access to someone sexually; Tripping~To start developing feelings for someone.

Acting innocent: To act naïve when you are not. Or better still, playing blameless or pretending not to know about something or how to do something in order to deceive people, whereas you may be a pro in it.

 

Break Up- To end a relationship, to disintegrate

Play for keeps: Having the intention of retaining or possessing something or someone permanently rather than just temporary

LOCATION

Shot somewhere in America; either a lounge or a nightclub. Mostly outdoor shoots.

SOUND

The tempo is kind of slow, but interesting. The singer has an interesting and appealing vocal that makes the song pleasing to the ears. She was quite audible except for the pre-chorus where I strained my ears to hear her lines. Her lyrics flowed well with the beat. The instruments used were not varied; however, there was consistency in the style of rhythm. The major instruments used were the drums and piano and this really enhanced the beauty of the strong.

 

VIDEO PRODUCTION

There is a twist to this song; at the onset, she was interested in a guy, but towards the end of the song, her interest shifted to a lady. In this regard, I would say the video is far from complementing the song. Because the track doesn’t seem like one promoting lesbianism but the video ended up promoting lesbianism.

The singer opted for only night scenes all through the video shoot, and they had terrific night light set up. In essence, the lightning was terrific; both the interior and exterior scenes.

Yeah, I actually recognize this guy as Halsey’s boyfriend in the song “Without me” (View the review here @www.ogefash.reviews) Hold up, let me ask Google for his name…

Okay, his name is Charles Melton. Charles is an actor and he is of half Korean descent (Wikipedia says)

 

JUST WONDERING

  • Why there was no song title or artiste’s name in the visual
  • Really, I did not know people were always generous at nightclubs to the extent that they call strangers to dance with their spouse.
