For all you sci-fi addicts out there, this music video is for you. Ariana Grande has teamed up with electronic music producer and DJ, Zedd for this smash hit “Break Free,” with a video that will take you on an ‘inconceivable outer space adventure.’
The galactic video was directed by Chris Marrs Piliero, and opens with an epilogue in the style of the infamous Star Wars opening crawl. This sets the theme for the video, and even warns the viewer that it is so ‘fantastically fantastical you’ll soil yourself from intergalactic excitement.’
There is so much jam packed into this music video, all the while, following the storyline of Grande saving enslaved humans from aliens, but then being captured herself. As the title of the song suggests, Grande manages to ‘break free’ from the devilish alien and joins Zedd in a party spaceship with all their alien and human friends.
Some fun aspects to the video include Grande taking on fembot qualities and shooting bazookas out of her breasts in order to gun down a giant robot. Then for a girlie touch, Grande has a luminous pink lipstick which she applies to give herself that celestial glow. Maybe she’s born with it? Maybe it’s Maybelline? Either way, it looks amazing and I want one.
Beats product placement was very evident towards the end of the video in the party space ship, with a speaker being used to amplify the music, and both Grande and Zedd wearing a pair of head phones. While product placement is fairly normal in videos these days, it didn’t really suit the outer space theme.
Of course, Grande looks absolutely flawless throughout the video. Hair, make up, and wardrobe were executed perfectly, but if I see one more close up of Grande framing her face, I might just have to have to press stop. There’s no denying her beauty, but we get it Ariana.
Yesterday, Grande released her new song featuring Big Sean called “Best Mistake,” and you can stream it right here on Zumic. Her album My Everything drops later this month, but stay tuned to her Zumic artist page for all the latest in music, news, and tour dates.
