Ariana Grande made her grand return to the music world with her upbeat single "No Tears Left to Cry" on Friday. The singer followed up the premiere with a beautiful, mind-bending video and debuted the song live during a surprise Coachella appearance -- all in the same day. Now, she’s giving fans a peek into how all the stunts of her new video took place.
The behind-the-scenes footage will be released in two parts -- the first of which was directed by Alfredo Flores. The official "No Tears Left to Cry" video was spearheaded by music video director Dave Meyers, who also directed Kendrick Lamar’s "Humble" video and frequently collaborates with Missy Elliott. The director gave his take on what the video wanted to accomplish. "The concept we wanted to explore was the disorientation that you go through in life and the quest we all go through to kind of find the ground again," Meyers said.
"We sort of flirt with the ambiguity of whether you need to find the ground or whether the ground’s just what you make of it," he continued.
