The highly anticipated music video for “thank u, next” is officially out! I was a little behind and not sure when to expect it until I heard it was noon pt today. Just a little bit after my lunch break, I took a few minutes to watch. The music video pays homage to four of my favorite early 2000 films: “Bring it On (2000),” “Legally Blonde (2001),” “Mean Girls (2004),” and “13 Going on 30 (2004).” There are even more than a handful of guest cameos in the music video as well including one member of the “Kardashian” klan.
“thank u, next” has been a hit since it debuted and the music video is likely one that will be talked about all weekend long. I had watched the behind the scenes special yesterday evening before the release and almost wish I hadn’t because I had found it to be a bit anti-climatic. That being said, the song is still my favorite and will absolutely be on my list at the end of the year for being a top 50 song. Which Ariana character best resonates with you?
