After achieving a 3-peat of #1 singles on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart with Sweetener cuts “No Tears Left to Cry,” “God Is a Woman” and “Breathin,” multi-Grammy nominated singer Ariana Grande is back with “Thank U, Next” as this week’s #28* Hot Shot Debut.
The recent Republic Records-released track has already received more than a warm reception due, in part, to its music video which touches on a multitude of cultural moments that helped to net it over 55,000,000 streams in 24 hours – a new Vevo record. Three days later, it broke another record for the fastest time to reach 100 million views. Fans have also gotten in on the fun by making their own spin-offs, with James Corden creating his own, “Thank U, Jeff” dedicated to Jeff Goldblum.
The breakup anthem “Thank U, Next” quickly gained a skillful remix from Canadian producer and DJ, Barry Harris, which has lent to the success of the original. With hundreds of millions of plays already on the Woman of The Year’s most recent release, it’s hard not to give the infectious track a listen. Check it out with the culture-blending visual below.
