Ariana Grande New Song “Boyfriend Material” (LYRICS)

By  | 

Ariana Grande‘s new single, “Problem,” is still holding strong on Billboard‘s Top 100 list, and to thank all her Arianators, she spontaneously released another new(ish) song. “Boyfriend Material” was supposed to be on Ari’s first album, Yours Truly, but didn’t make the final cut. Fans originally heard the song when Ari leaked it during one of her live chats, and since it obviously spread like wildfire, she wanted to eventually release the full version. She tweeted:

“a little surprise for my loves as a thank you for all of your constant love, support and dedication. i know how much y’all love this song and how disappointed you were when it didn’t make it on to my first album so i knew i had to get it to you somehow someday. this song means a lot to me and holds such a special place in my heart as it was one of the first songs i did when i started working on ‘yours truly’ when i was like 17 ….. don’t worry… you’ll get more of these oldies too as time goes on! I’m working on it for you. love you all so much. you are everything. love you.”



“Boyfriend Material” has a retro vibe with a heavy Mariah Carey influence. We can totally see how it would’ve fit on Yours Truly, but it’s still totally relevant (since, you know, she’s back with boyfriend Jai Brooks) and catchy for Ariana today. Check out the lyrics below:

Now I’ve been looking for someone
Trying to find the right boy to wear on my arm
I must admit it
You simply fit it
You were like a cut from the rest, that’s why you’re winning (hey)

Boy, at night when I close my eyes, I can see you
My perfect type
I never really thought my dreams would come true,
Until I laid eyes on you
Can’t you know you are



Boyfriend material, boyfriend material
That’s what you’re made of, it’s written on your label
Boyfriend material, m-m-material, want everyone to know
Boyfriend material, boyfriend material (boy)
Boyfriend material, m-m-material, want everyone to know

That you and your perfect smile
Are both timeless and never going out of style
There’s so many reasons you got it together
I’m catching feelings, you make me look better (better)

Boy, at night when I close my eyes, I can see you
My perfect type
I never really thought my dreams would come true,
Until I laid eyes on you
Can’t you know you are



Boyfriend material, boyfriend material
That’s what you’re made of, it’s written on your label
Boyfriend material, m-m-material, want everyone to know
Boyfriend material, boyfriend material (boy)
Boyfriend material, m-m-material, want everyone to know

Oh, there ain’t any other
It’s all the little things that you do, make me wanna sing
There ain’t any other
The way you’re talking to me, I can tell you’ve been listening
To everything

And maybe it’s the butterflies I get every time I hear your ringtone (ringtone)
And maybe it’s cause every single text, boy, I told myself you were the one

Boyfriend material
(You know you are) Boyfriend material, boyfriend material
That’s what you’re made of, it’s written on your label
Boyfriend material, m-m-material, want everyone to know

You’re my boyfriend material, boyfriend material
That’s what you’re made of, it’s written on your label
Boyfriend material, m-m-material, want everyone to know

Boyfriend material, boyfriend material (boy)
Boyfriend material, m-m-material, want everyone to know
