Ladies and gents, meet your new commandress-in-chief: Ariana Grande.
Whatever went down between Joe Biden and President Trump in the talk Thursday night time — and no matter goes down on Election Day Nov. 3 — the “Thank U, Next” singer needs you to know that she is the Head Diva in Charge as she takes over the White House in the video for her new single, “Positions.”
In the clip — directed by Dave Meyers, whom Grande beforehand collaborated with on her “No Tears Left to Cry,” “The Light Is Coming” and “God Is a Woman” movies — Grande presides over her personal cupboard of infinitely cooler characters than you will ever see up in 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
But in addition to posing and pouting because the chief of the free world — and looking out fierce whereas doing it — Grande exhibits that she will change it up and rule in the kitchen and bed room too.
She will get particularly inventive with some flour, which apparently is the brand new whipped cream of aphrodisiacs. Whatever precisely she’s baking does not actually matter — it is a temper.
Following up hit collabs with Justin Bieber (“Stuck With U”) and Lady Gaga (“Rain on Me”) in 2020, “Positions” is the newest single from an artist who, like her equally prolific labelmate Drake, can not seem to keep out of the studio. It seems to be the title observe from what would be Grande’s sixth studio album, which — judging by the countdown presently occurring on her website — appears to be popping out Oct. 30.
The tune is all slinky sexiness, with Grande cooing, “Boy I’m tryna meet your mama/On a Sunday/Then make a lotta love/On a Monday.” (No Zoom requires her, apparently.)
And she boasts about having some gold-medal abilities in “switching the positions” from the kitchen to the bed room: “I’m in the Olympics approach/I’m leaping by way of hoops.”
Although “Positions” is not the slam-dunk single that “Thank U, Next,” “7 Rings” and “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” had been from Grande’s final album, 2019’s “Thank U, Next,” it simmers with a sultry sophistication.
This former Nickelodeon star, now 27, is rising an increasing number of into her goddessness as a lady.
