Grande amps up nos­tal­gia in ‘thank u’ video

Centre Daily Times (Sunday) - - Stay Connected -

Ari­ana Grande’s “thank u, next” has al­ready nabbed the singer her first No. 1 sin­gle on Bill­board’s Hot 100 chart, and now it has a video burn­ing up so­cial me­dia.

The video dropped Fri­day af­ter­noon and is rife with ref­er­ences to clas­sic come­dies from the early 2000s, in­clud­ing “Mean Girls,” “Legally Blonde” and “Bring It On.”

The buzzed-about video for “thank u, next” is in keep­ing with the song’s pro­file thus far. Grande re­leased the song as a sur­prise ear­lier in the month, in the wake of the sud­den end to her whirl­wind ro­mance with for­mer fiance Pete David­son.

Through­out the song, Grande re­counts sev­eral of her exes and strug­gles from her past, grate­ful for all of it be­cause it made her who she is to­day.
