Ariana Grande dropped a bomb at midnight.
The new video for her single “7 Rings” has already racked up better than 5.2 million views on YouTube decrease than eight hours after it went on-line.
The 25-year-old’s latest banger is backed by a monitor that performs playful homage to “My Favorite Things” from “The Sound of Music.”
And Grande’s lyrics make it pretty clear she’s moved on from the dying of ex-boyfriend Mac Miller and her broken engagement with “Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson.
“Been through some bad s–t/ I should be a sad bitch/ Who would’ve thought it’d turn me to a savage/ Rather be tied up with gauze and not strings/ Write my own checks like I write what I sing.”
The important takeaway: 2019 is about female empowerment — the boys are on the once more burner. Clad in blinged out kitty ears and sporting a stairwell-length ponytail, Grande purrs out this rap-ready chorus:
“Wearing a ring but not cause I’m no Mrs./ Bought matching diamonds for six of my bitches, I’d rather spoil all my friends with riches/ Think retail therapy my new addiction/ I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it.”
And spoil her buddies she did.
In December, Granded tweeted that the “7 rings” belonged to her and her most interesting buddies — Victoria Monét, Courtney Chipolone, Alexa Luria, Tayla Parx, Njozma, Alexa Luria and Kaydence — all of whom made cameos in her rosè-hued video. (BTW: She said her “mom and nonna” acquired bonus rings after the monitor was already achieved.)
