About Heartbreaker

"Heartbreaker" is a song by American singer and songwriter Mariah Carey. It was released on September 21, 1999, by Columbia Records as the lead single from Carey's seventh studio album Rainbow (1999). The song was written by Carey and Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, and produced by Carey and DJ Clue. Additional writers are credited, since the song's hook is built around a sample from "Attack of the Name Game" by Stacy Lattisaw. "Heartbreaker" pushed Carey even further into the R&B and hip hop market, becoming her second commercial single to feature a rapper. Lyrically, the song talks about a relationship from the female perspective, and how the protagonist incessantly returns to her lover, even though he continuously cheats on her and breaks her heart. "Heartbreaker" received mixed reviews from music critics, many of which felt it was not original or innovative in terms of a creative step forward. Additionally, it was compared heavily to Carey's 1995 hit single "Fantasy", which also built its hook from a sampled beat. "Heartbreaker" topped the Canadian Singles Chart and the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming Carey's 14th US chart-topper. Across Europe and Australia, the single topped the New Zealand Singles Chart and was a top-five single in France and the United Kingdom.

Give me your love
Give me your love
Give me your love
Give me your love
Give me your love
Give me your love
Give me your love
Give me your love

You gotta bounce to it like this 
You almost gotta walk to this 
Uh huh 
Escape 
 
Boy your love's so good 
I don't want to let go 
And although I should 
I can't leave you alone 
'Cause you're so disarming 
I'm caught up in the midst of you 
And I can not resist, and oh

Boy if I do 
The things you want me to 
The way I used to do 
Would you love me, baby 
Hold me, feeling now 
Go and break my heart 

Heartbreaker, you got the best of me 
But I just keep on coming back incessantly
Oh why, did you have to run your game on me 
I should have known right from the start 
You'd go and break my heart 

Give me your love, give me your love 
Give me your love, give me your love
Give me your love, give me your love
Give me your love, give me your love
Give me your love, give me your love
Give me your love, give me your love
Give me your love, give me your love
Give me your love, give me your love

It's a shame to be so euphoric and weak 
When you smile at me 
And you tell me the things that you know 
Persuade me to relinquish my love to you 
But I can not resist at all 

Boy if I do 
The things you want me to 
The way I used to do 
Would you love me, baby 
Hold me, feeling now 
Go and break my heart 

Heartbreaker, you got the best of me 
But I just keep on coming back incessantly
Oh why, did you have to run your game on me 
I should have known right from the start 
You'd go and break my heart 

She want to shop with Jay, play box with Jay 
She want to pillow fight in the middle of the night 
She want to drive my Benz with five of her friends 
She want to creep past the block spyin' again 
She want to roll with Jay, chase the skeeos away 
She want to fight with lame chicks, blow my day 
She want to inspect the rest, kick me to the curb 
If she find a strand of hair longer than hers 
She want love in the jacuzzi, rub up in the movies 
Access to the old crib, keys to the new crib 
She want to answer the phone, tattoo her arm 
That's when I gotta send her back to her moms 
She call me "Heartbreaker" 
When we apart, it makes her 
Want to get a piece of paper, scribble "I hate ya" 
But she know she love Jay because 
She love everything Jay say, Jay does and uh

Heartbreaker, you got the best of me 
But I just keep on coming back incessantly
Oh why, did you have to run your game on me 
I should have known right from the start 
You'd go and break my heart 

Heartbreaker, you got the best of me 
But I just keep on coming back incessantly
Oh why, did you have to run your game on me 
I should have known right from the start 
You'd go and break my heart 

Heartbreaker, you got the best of me 
But I just keep on coming back incessantly
Oh why, did you have to run your game on me 
I should have known right from the start 
You'd go and break my heart 

Heartbreaker, you got the best of me 
But I just keep on coming back incessantly
Oh why, did you have to run your game on me 
I should have known right from the start 
You'd go and break my heart 

Give me your love, give me your love
Give me your love, give me your love
