Ariana Grande video for Thank U, Next to hit 40m views this weekend

Ariana Grande has released the star-studded music video for her latest hit single, Thank U, Next with the hit song securely at the number one spot in the UK singles chart.

The music video for Thank U, Next had been viewed nearly 40 million times within six hours of being posted on YouTube.

Grande’s self-love anthem broke YouTube records as it became the first video to reach 1 million views in less than 34 minutes. The track has stayed at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 since its release three weeks ago

The highly anticipated video paid homage to teen movies such as Mean Girls, Bring It on, 13 Going on 30 and Legally Blonde also includes appearances by many of her celebrity friends including Kris Jenner , Jennifer Coolidge and Jonathan Bennett.

Opening up the video is teen hit Mean Girls, with Grande transforming into high-school queen bee Regina George and recreating that raunchy talent show dance.                                                                            

She then morphs into Elle Woods, valley girl and Harvard Law student from Legally Blonde.

The original Elle, Reese Witherspoon, enjoyed the re-imagined scenes from the 2001 comedy about a blonde sorority girl hoping to win back her ex-boyfriend by getting a law degree.

Then comes that cheerleading classic Bring It On and its cheer-off between the Toros and Clovers.

And finally – if three films weren’t enough – comes 13 Going On 30.


The song is currently enjoying its fourth week at number one in the UK singles charts.
