Through a series of Instagram photos, she revealed that the video is going to be paying tribute to some of the most iconic movies from the noughties - including 13 Going on 30, Legally Blonde, Bring it On and, of course, Mean Girls. 13 Going on 30 star Mark Ruffalo's reaction, and Grande's response1.
'@arianagrande you're adorable. Thank you, pretty girl.
Ariana Grande just dropped the music video we've all been waiting for.
"You guys, this is what she makes us watch over and over and over again", Kardashian said while out to dinner with her mom, as first reported by PEOPLE.
We think it's safe to say this is, hands down, a definite contender for "Video of the Year". That's probably the only way I'd go back to high school.
Act cool, Ari, act cool. Let me spill some tea for you.
Us too, girl, us too.
After all that hype, Grande has delivered some grade A nostalgia dipped in positivity and love - things the world could always do with more of.
Check out the gallery to see all of the references from the movies in Ariana's newest video.
She takes the crown from Selena Gomez with a whopping 46.9 million monthly listeners.
"Thank U Next" is famously a message of gratitude to Grande's past relationships with Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson, rapper Big Sean, former backup dancer Ricky Alvarez and late rapper Mac Miller, naming them all directly in her lyrics.
