  • Lyrics
  • This slow burning ballad finds Grande contemplating ending a fractured relationship. She sings:

    Break-up, make-up, total waste of time.
    Can we please make up our minds

    Though it's obviously time to part ways, the singer is finding it difficult to walk away from her guy.
  • Big Sean contributes a verse halfway through the song in which he continues the break-up and make-up concept. The rapper recorded his rhymes around the time that he split from his girlfriend Naya Rivera, which may well have influenced his lyrics.

    Sean previously worked with Grande on her Yours Truly single "Right There" as well as whispering some lines on her hit tune "Problem."
