Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next album is finally here—and the pop star dropped a new music video to go along with her new release.
Ari’s latest video—for her bold track “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored”—has the singer seeing double, with model Ariel Yasmine playing her doppelgänger. It also stars Riverdale‘s Charles Melton (he plays Reggie on the teen drama), as a guy Grande is unabashedly lusting after even though he has a girlfriend (Yasmine). But the video—directed by Hannah Lux Davis, who also did Grande’s “Thank U, Next” and “7 Rings” videos—has a twist ending that fans weren’t expecting.
And to mark the debut of her highly-anticipated album—which drops just six months after Sweetener—Grande also shared a sweet message with her fans on Twitter last night. “I can’t stop crying. I love y’all,” she wrote. “I hope u enjoy this album. This music, you guys and my friends saved my life.”
