"Break My Heart" is a song by English singer Dua Lipa from her second studio album, Future Nostalgia (2020). The song was written by Lipa, Ali Tamposi, Stefan Johnson, Jordan K. Johnson, and Andrew Watt, with the latter of the five handling production alongside the Monsters & Strangerz. Due to an unintentional similarity to the guitar riff in INXS's 1987 song "Need You Tonight", band members Andrew Farriss and Michael Hutchence are also credited as writers, and the similarity is credited as an interpolation. The song was released for digital download and streaming on 25 March 2020 through Warner Records as the third single from Future Nostalgia, and impacted American contemporary hit radio on 31 March 2020 as the album's second single in the United States.
