"Break My Heart" is an funky disco-pop song where Dua Lipa questions whether a new love will leave her nursing a broken heart again. I should've stayed at home 'Cause now there ain't no letting you go Am I falling in love with the one that could break my heart? Lipa is falling for her new beau so that hard that should they part, it would be a heartbreak that would never mend. She explained to Apple Music: "It's about finally being in a happy place and knowing this new person is amazing. But then thinking: 'Nothing else compares to this, and what if this ends and it breaks my heart?' It's the whole thing of being scared to be too happy."
Dua is likely referencing her boyfriend Anwar Hadid as "the one" she is falling in love with. The American model is brother to the famous siblings Bella and Gigi Hadid. The couple first met back in early 2019 when Hadid showed Lipa some songs he'd written. They started dating in the summer of 2019.
Dua Lipa wrote the song with: Producer Andrew Watt and songwriter Ali Tamposi, whose previous collaborations together include Camilla Cabello's Monster hit "Havana." Jordan K. Johnson and Stefan Johnson of The Monsters and the Strangerz musical collective. They have worked a number of times with Maroon 5 including the hit song "Memories." "Break My Heart" marks Lipa's first time collaborating with Ali Tamposi, Andrew Watt and The Monsters & Strangerz.
