The 1960's tribute supports Grande's latest smash hit, which precedes her upcoming sophomore album.
While Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" (feat. Charli XCX) makes history by moving up to No. 1 on this week's Hot 100 chart, Azalea's other pop smash, Ariana Grande's "Problem," bumps up to No. 2 on the chart, giving Grande her highest-charting single yet. A little over a month after its release, "Problem" finally receives an official music video, which features Grande and Azalea delivering the kiss-off anthem in a decidedly retro aesthetic. Watch below:
The "Problem" music video, which Grande teased on Instagram hours before its release, finds Grande getting her go-go on and surrounding herself with contorting dancers before Azalea shows up rocking a striking Barbarella hairstyle (the Whisper Man himself, Big Sean, also pops in for a cameo). Directed by Nev Todorovic, the "Problem" clip dials down the lavishness of Grande's "Right There" video and offers an homage to 1960's style, right down to the grainy camera effects.
