Video: Ariana Grande f/ Zedd – ‘Break Free’

Ariana Grande

After topping the iTunes singles chart with the Big Sean-assisted “Best Mistake,” Ariana Grande surprises her Arianators with the video for “Break Free” featuring Zedd.

The pop crusader explores a galaxy far, far away in the futuristic clip, which was inspired by Barbarella and Star Wars. Ariana plays an intergalactic princess who comes to rescue the planet from the dark side. She uses her breasts as weapons and crushes the enemy robots before racing off in her spaceship with Zedd and some extraterrestrial friends.

“It’s inspired by Jane Fonda in Barbarella and Star Wars and space,” Ariana told Ryan Seacrest. “It’s more throwback, campy.”

Her sophomore album My Everything drops August 25 featuring The Weeknd, A$AP Ferg, and Childish Gambino, plus the Iggy Azalea-assisted hit “Problem” and “Bang Bang” with Nicki Minaj and Jessie J.

The day before her album release, Ariana will perform “Break Free” at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards in L.A.

Blast into space with Princess Ariana.

Big Sean and Ariana Grande

Oh God, Ariana Grande and Big Sean are back at it. Following last year’s hit “Right There,” the frequent collaborators/rumored couple show off their chemistry once again on the Key Wane-produced “Best Mistake,” which was released to iTunes on Monday night.

“‘Cause if the water dries up and the moon stops shining, stars fall, and the world goes blind / Boy, you know I’ll be saving my love for you / ‘Cause you’re the best mistake I’ve ever made,” sings Ariana on the tender R&B jam.

Sean responds by calling his girl a “goddess” and showing love to her mom. “When you start as friends, it’s hard to say you’re never going back / If I’m not the one, then I’m the best mistake you ever had.”

Ariana says the song is her favorite off her sophomore album My Everything, which arrives August 25.

In addition to Sean, the album features The Weeknd, Iggy Azalea, A$AP Ferg, and Childish Gambino.
