  • Lyrics
  • djbooth.net asked Sullivan if she had ever busted the windows of a boyfriend or ex-boyfriend in real life. She replied: "We're just not gonna get into that. But, it definitely is a real situation, and I've run into a lot of men and women who've experienced that. It needed to be said, and I was the chick to do it. [laughs]" She added: "All you guys have to do is be honest, be faithful, and your windows won't get busted out."
  • Sullivan penned the majority of Fearless. Djbooth.net asked the R&B singer-songwriter what type of environment is most conducive for her to write a quality song. She replied: "I can get inspiration at any time, so it really doesn't matter where I'm at. That's how I came up with "Bust Your Windows," and the idea kind of just ran through my mind, and it woke me up out of my sleep, and I wrote this song as soon as I got up. I gather information just, from anywhere; if I'm at a store and I see a magazine article, right then and there I can come up with something."
  • The song entered the UK single charts for the first time in 2013 after being covered by Letitia Grant-Brown on The Voice.
