US couple makes breakup video to announce split to pals

New York - A musically-inclined couple from Williamsburg, Brooklyn, put a quirky spin on their breakup by telling friends about their split through a video.

Ivory King, 31, and Jonathan Mann, 30, who broke up after 5 years, disagreeing on whether to have kids, thought the music video would be the easiest way to break the news.

Posted online late Wednesday, it’s a soon-to-be-viral YouTube hit. But for 30-year-old Mann, it was simply a bittersweet ending to their relationship.

“I want kids and she doesn’t,” the New York Daily News quoted Mann as saying.

The lyrics of ‘We’ve Got To Break Up’ reflect the couple’s downfall and reassure friends that they won’t have to pick sides.

“I didn’t want to make a post on Facebook and have that be it,” Mann said.

“And I didn’t want to have to explain it over and over to people, because that can be really painful.

“And I hoped it would feel cathartic to make this together, as sort of our final act. When it comes down to it, there’s no way to feel anything but sad in a situation like ours,” he added.

The video was part of Mann’s ongoing ‘Song a Day’ project.

For more than 1400 consecutive days, Mann’s posted a new song on YouTube.

The full-time musician often enlisted help from King, a writer who also sings and plays the bass clarinet.
