During quarantine, we all have seen Cardi B and Meghan The Stallion’s music video for the song WAP, but now a new viral video is in our midst: Ariana Grande’s music video Positions.
Weirdly enough, not only were listeners and fans of Grande surprised by the Positions’ music video release date, but they were also surprised by its contents. Ariana has released much of her music to be an emotional yet uplifting beat, however, Positions is different. The music video and song itself is probably one of Grande’s most controversial pieces as it is saucy and pushes all the buttons. Even though it may be up there with Ariana’s most scandalous pieces, Grande’s views, likes, and the overall streaming rate has not at all depleted with over 55 million views in just a week.
The real question remains what was Ariana’s vision and what inspired her to write such a bold song? Although Grande has not discussed in any interviews what her answer to either of these questions were, we can infer by the lyrics that Ariana’s intent was inspired by her boyfriend since January: Dalton Gomez. She talks about switching positions for him and how her love for him is versatile. This could mean many things, but the biggest thing it means is that Ariana is about to share some big news with her S.O. Dalton Gomez, whether it be a baby on the way or even a big step in their relationship with an engagement ring.
Even though some critics of Grande are saying that this album was a miss compared to her other previous albums, they probably are not aware of its deeper meaning and are thrown by Ariana’s new theme of her songs. Whatever Ariana’s next move may be, we are so excited and genuinely can not wait for her next big thing in either her music life or personal life!
