"Break Free" is the second single off Ariana Grande's second album, My Everything. Released on July 2, 2014, it features electronic music producer and DJ, Zedd. It peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming her second highest peaking single, as well as a commercial success. The music video was released on August 12, 2014. This song is on Just Dance 2015.

Background

Zedd was backstage at a Universal Records showcase when he heard Ariana sing. At the time, he didn't know who it was but he knew he wanted to work with whoever's voice it was. Ariana first confirmed she had recorded a song with Zedd in an interview with Billboard on April 28, 2014. She then talked about "Break Free" at the 2014 Wango Tango and stated that she wanted the song to be the next single.[1][2][3] Throughout the month of June, Ariana hinted about her second single but did not reveal that it was the collaboration with Zedd until June 21 where she also revealed the title of the track, "Break Free."[4] On June 22, 2014, she started a ten day online countdown to the release of the song where she officially confirmed that Zedd would be a featured artist on the track.[5]

Music video

The music video was filmed from June 10-12.[6] Ariana began hinting at the video by posting photos of aliens and space. She later revealed that the video was inspired by the 1968 science fiction film Barbarella, Star Wars, and space in general. It was released on August 12, 2014 on Ariana's Vevo channel. In the video Ariana fights aliens who are trying to capture her and frees the caged hostages. She also puts on lipstick in the form of a lightsaber, shoots rockets out of her chest, and floats around in zero gravity. Zedd, the credited featuring producer of the track also made a feature in the video.

Lyrics

If you want it, take it
I should've said it before
Tried to hide it, fake it
I can't pretend anymore

I only wanna die alive
Never by the hands of a broken heart
Don't wanna hear you lie tonight
Now that I've become who I really are

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more
This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more

You were better, deeper
I was under your spell
Like a deadly fever (yeah, babe)
On the highway to hell

I only wanna die alive
Never by the hands of a broken heart
Don't wanna hear you lie tonight
Now that I've become who I really are

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more
This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more
Oh, my baby

Thought on your body I came alive
It was lethal
It was fatal
In my dreams it felt so right
But I woke up every time
Oh baby

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more
This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
'Cause I can't resist it no more
