This is not a drill. After teasing us, Ariana Grande has dropped a video for new single ‘Positions’, showing a dream scenario for the U.S..

According to Pitchfork, the overtly political video sees Grande as the President. Her political administration features members of her real-life inner circle, including her frequent cowriter Tayla Parx and her mother Joan Grande. They just look much cooler and competent than the crustaceous old white crew who currently occupy the space.

Grande holds press conferences, she makes tough political decisions, she walks her dogs in the gardens. She even finds the time to mess around the kitchen. Simply put, she rules the Oval Office in a way it’s not been ruled in a long time.

She also looks wonderfully stylish while doing it all, wearing an outfit at one point reminiscent of iconic former First Lady Jackie Kennedy.

Directed by Dave Meyers, the video had already racked up over 450,000 views on YouTube in under two hours. Those are some serious numbers.

The song itself is a romantic anthem that describes how Grande is “jumping through hoops” to make her relationship work.

‘Positions’ is the lead single from Grande’s new album, which arrives on Friday, October 30th. As yet untitled, it’s her swift follow-up to 2019’s ridiculously huge Thank U, Next.

Grande has already racked up two massive songs this year, albeit as a supporting player. ‘Stuck with U’ with Justin Bieber and ‘Rain on Me’ alongside Lady Gaga both made it to number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. She also slayed during a performance with Lady Gaga of their hit single at the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards.

We demand Grande to be added to the ballot for the upcoming U.S. Presidential election now. I mean, if Kanye West can be included, anyone really can.
