Ariana Grande is one of the most-talked about singers right now, especially her hit single “Problem” from her new album My Everything. In the song’s music video, Ariana sings and dances, rapper Iggy Azalea does a brief rap and dances with Ariana, and there are various references to the 1960s throughout.
The music video is filmed in CinemaScope. Ariana is spinning around on top of a 1960s-style swirl, and there are French New Wave jump cuts during the chorus of the song. The clothes the singers wear in the music video are also reminiscent of the era, like Ariana’s go-go boots or Iggy’s turtleneck sweater.
When you watch the music video, it could be said that Ariana sounds like Mariah Carey and Iggy sounds like Nicki Minaj.
