Ariana Grande has released a retro video for “34+35,” a cut from her new album Positions.
In the ’60s-inspired clip helmed by Director X, Grande leads a team of scientists who work together to bring a robot—also played by the singer—to life. The video also features scenes of the pop star and a troupe of dancers performing the sultry track on a black-and-white set filled with polka dots. “Can you stay up all night? / Fuck me ’til the daylight / 34, 35,” she sings on the flirtatious chorus.
Tommy Lee Jones supplies the track’s bubbly instrumental, which is what Grande said inspired the filthy lyrics. “We heard the strings and that sounded so Disney and orchestral and full and pure, and I was like, ‘What is the dirtiest possible, most opposing lyrics we could write to this?’” she told Zach Sang.
Grande’s Positions album also included collaborations with Doja Cat, The Weeknd and Ty Dolla $ign. She had previously released a video for the album’s title track, “Positions.” The LP is the follow-up to her 2019 album, Thank U, Next.
