It’s possibly the most anticipated music video of the year and Ariana Grande did a ‘grande’ job of building up the suspense. Featuring a bunch of cameos including Troye Sivan, Youtuber Colleen Ballinger, iconic Mean Girls faces Jonathan Bennett (Aaron Samuels) and Stefanie Drummond (the “I saw Cady Heron wearing army pants and flip flops, so I bought army pants and flip flops” girl) and Kris Jenner, the music video for Thank U, Next is a glorious nod to a number of classic flicks that define our childhood.
When the teaser dropped, we saw a bunch of iconic antics towards 13 Going on 30, Bring It On, Legally Blonde and Mean Girls and these references do not disappoint as they come to life on screen. Feast your eyes on the biggest music video release of the year below, and brace yourself for the Burn Book, cheerleader twerking and the 'bend and snap'.
Ariana Grande's Thank U, Next broke Spotify's global, single-day streaming record for a female artist and it's been streamed almost 30 million times already.
And here's everything that went down at Childish Gambino's secret PHAROS gig.
