Ariana Grande’s ‘Problem’ Music Video with Iggy Azalea is a Trip Back to the ’60s with Miniskirts

May 30, 2014

Ariana Grande’s ‘Problem’ music video has debuted. The pop music diva and her Iggy Azalea, her guest artist, take us on a dazzling trip back to the 1960s, with mini-skirts and psychedelic visuals and Big Sean drops in for a cameo appearance.

The 20-year-old Ariana Grande has made the transition from Nickelodeon star to pop music star with a successful debut album, ‘Yours Truly,’ that debuted at No. 1. But with another album already on the way, she’s not finished dominating the charts, as her new song ‘Problem’ produced by Max Martin has already reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Australian rapper, Iggy Azalea, her guest artist has a hit of her own that’s ruling the charts, as ‘Fancy’ hits No. 2 and may yet top ‘Problem.’ Either way, it seems our songs of the summer have two strong contenders already.

The song is infectious and its hook will linger with you, ‘I got one less, one less problem / One less problem without ya’

Now there’s an exciting music video to go along with it that gleefully takes a headlong dive into the 1960s. It’s engaging, and with a literal blizzard of stripes and other visual effects that some may find trippy.

And yes, the pop diva — in the very best sense with her amazing, multi-octave vocal range — Ariana Grande is decked out in a mini-skirt and Go-Go boots that evoke Nancy Sinatra and the iconic song ‘These Boots Are Made For Walkin” Iggy Azalea, who’s been lately a fashion icon, makes a memorable appearance as well, in full fledged ’60s mode.

One might wonder, why that particular decade, why the costumes and the sexy dancing, but as is so often the case with music videos it’s a matter of “why ask why?!” The video has gone viral and you can see it in its entirety below!
