Ariana Grande has released the video for her new track ‘Boyfriend’, a collaboration wth Social House. You can check it out below.
The new clip features Grande getting jealous and violent after watching her “boyfriend” talk to other women. The video was directed by Hannah Lux Davis, who also worked with Grande on her videos for ‘thank u, next’ and ‘7 Rings,’ among others.
Grande’s latest non-album track, ‘Boyfriend’ co-stars Social House, a Pittsburgh duo who’ve been opening for Grande on tour lately. Their sound errs on the side of coffeehouse folk-pop, which marks them as highly unusual collaborators for an R&B-minded diva who keeps one foot in the rap world and dove head first into trap music on her last album.
Responding to a fan on Twitter, Grande said the song was about the fear of commitment and labelling relationships. “People want to feel love but don’t want to define their relationship & have trouble fully committing or trusting or allowing themselves to fully love someone. Even tho’ they want to,” she wrote. In the video, Grande imagines doing away with her beloved Social House’s other ladies in gnarly revenge fantasies. Finally, Grande joins archery queens Cheryl Blossom and Geena Davis.
