'Boyfriend' has been produced by Mike Posner, who has previously collaborated with artists including Bruno Mars, Lil Wayne and Cher Lloyd.
The track features a more mature sound for the 18-year-old, featuring a hip-hop backing track, Justin Timberlake-style vocals and spoken word elements.
Lyrics include: "Tell me what you like, dear/ Tell me what you don't/ I could be your Buzz Lightyear/ Fly across the globe."
Producer Mason Levy, who also worked on the song, told MTV News: "This record is different in a very good way. Definitely edgier, it's more grown-up, it's more developed and it's sexier. It's just, like, really dope. It's gonna definitely surprise people. People aren't really expecting that. They're going to like it."
