Ariana Grande has hinted her new song 'Problem' is about ex-boyfriend Nathan Sykes.
The 'Baby I' singer, who dated The Wanted star and teamed up with rapper Iggy Azalea for the track about a past love, admits she also was reluctant to use the song before being persuaded by her label.
She told Billboard: "'Problem' truly represents the feeling of being absolutely terrified to re-approach a relationship that's gone sour, but you want to more than anything.
"In the song, it ends on a sappy, negative note, but in [real] life, we're hoping it's going to end on a positive one. I feel like it's all very honest and human."
In January, the 20-year-old singer, who dated Nathan for about four months, revealed the pair's break-up in December was amicable and insists he's a really good friend.
She said: "I am so glad to have met him and have a friend like him in my life. He's an amazing person. It was very civil. It was mutual."
Meanwhile, the star's new track 'Problem' has broken an iTunes record when it shot to the top of the US iTunes chart in record time following its release on Monday (28.04.14).
Ariana wrote on Twitter: "loves u broke a record! Problem is now the fastest song to ever climb to no 1 on @iTunesmusic only 37 minute u are the most amazing (sic)"
