Ariana Grande wasted no time putting “Thank U, Next” into the world, releasing it less than three months after Sweetener debuted. She then treated fans to a lyric video for the breakup single just a few days later on Tuesday (Nov. 6).

The new video displays the words of her song on uneven, faded pink pieces of paper against a matching background, employing a ransom note effect. An occasional lipstick print appears by the lyrics, adding to the vintage feel created by the choppy footage.

Grande shared the video with her fans via Twitter following its release.
