You can check out our previous coverage of the sisters' announcement of Love You to Death right here! "I was getting into [a relationship] with a girl who had never dated a girl before. She had a guy that she was sort of seeing, and we used to joke around that she was treating me like her boyfriend, and I was trying to get her to tie it down. I wanted her to make it official with me," Sara revealed to Beats 1 in a quick interview preceding the premiere, according to Vulture. "We've all been in that situation where we really like someone and we want to make it official and they're not ready." Check out the song right here (via Spin): Fans of the sisters will definitely hear the similarities between this new song and their last album, Heartthrob, which dove deep into their pop music influences. If "Boyfriend" is any hint at what's to come, we're in for another great record.
