When a musically inclined Brooklyn, New York, couple decided to end their long term relationship, they created a video to share the breaking news with their friends.
The published the video online on Wednesday, to the popular internet video website YouTube. For the 30-year-old Jonathan Mann, this was simply a bittersweet end to a five-year relationship.
"I wanted kids and she did not," Mann told news reporters.
The lyrics of "We have got to break up" reflect the couple’s split centered around a baby and reassure their friends that they will not have to take sides.
Mann said he and his ex-girlfriend, 31-year-old Ivory King, thought the music video would be the easiest way to break the news to friends.
"I did not want to do a facebook post," he said. "I do not want to have to explain over and over again to people why we split, because that can be very painful.”
