Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj finally deliver the music video for “the light is coming.” The setting is reminiscent of the greenery scenes of Rihanna’s “S.O.S.” music video, minus the hi-beam feel of the lights. The opening shows a tree’s giant root coming from the earth.
We follow its length until we find Nicki. The rapper delivers her verse in the dark, surrounded by billowing fog. Then comes Ariana. She prances and crawls in the forest. Lays her back down on a rock, pulls on her iconic ponytail. She’s doing the most. It doesn’t sound particularly cute, but it is. The video can legit be watched without sound for another layer of entertainment, no joke.
Enjoy the visual while waiting for Ariana’s next album, Sweetener.
