Ariana Grande Channels Madonna with New Single ‘Yes, And’

Today is the day we have been longing for like a new Rihanna album.

Ariana Grande is back with a bop.

For the first time in three years, Grande has just released her Madonna- influenced single, “Yes, And?”. She has also  teased a subsequent music video. 

The teaser opens with a hand holding a card with “AG7” written on it – the name of Grande’s currently untitled seventh studio album. The card also has the coordinates 41.0359° N – 71.9545° W, the coordinates of Montauk, New York. Given Grande is a fan of Jim Carrey, this is a possible nod to his film, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind which was set in Montauk.

The other side of the card reads: “Your presence has been exclusively requested.”

The clip then shifts different shots of critics entering an office building. “Yeah, real exclusive. Typical Ari,” bemoans a critic in an elevator. “You know, I think I liked her better when her ponytail was a few centimetres higher,” says another.

The teaser closes with a shot of a clock striking 12:00 before cutting to a black screen that reveals the music video’s official release date: Friday, Jan. 12, at 7 a.m. PT.

Most recently Grande has added two more Billboard Hot 100 chart toppers to her catalogue, “Save Your Tears” and “Die for You”, both of which were collaborations with the Weeknd. She has also been busily filming the movie Wicked in the UK where she is set to play Glinda the Good Witch.
