Ariana Grande reconnects with Social House on the new single “Boyfriend.”
The singer-songwriter began teasing the release earlier this week on the ‘Gram, sharing clips and stills from its official video, as well as a few song lyrics: “but u don’t want me to see nobody else ... n I don’t want u to see nobody,” she captioned a post.

Grande has worked with Social House—made up of Michael “Mikey” Foster and Charles “Scootie” Anderson—on a number of big hits, including “Thank U, Next,” “7 Rings,” “Goodnight N Go,” and “Monopoly” featuring Victoria Monét. The duo also opened for Grande on the Sweetener World Tour, and recruited her for their 2019 single “Haunt You.” They’re also signed to School Boy Records, which was founded by Ariana’s manager, Scooter Braun.
Back in March, Social House spoke about working with Grande on the Thank U, Next album, saying their collaborations were “organic.”
“We were all sitting together, just talking about what was going on in life, and how everybody felt. And Ari gave us the direction, and told us how she wanted to do things, and what [song ideas] she wanted to do,” Scootie told Songwriter Universe. “At the time, me and Mikey went over to the production room and started making ideas. We put together some chords and stuff, and then we played it for Ari, and she was like, ‘Yes’ (laughs). And we all went to work writing it.”
