First Look: Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea Go Mod in ‘Problem’ Video

Iggy Azalea and Ariana Grande

After selling over 435,000 copies of her smash single, Ariana Grande is readying a video for “Problem” featuring Iggy Azalea. The monochromatic clip, directed by Young Astronaut, features the ladies in all their mod glory. Iggy rocks big blonde hair and Ariana rides a motorcycle in the first pics from the set, which they teased on Instagram.

The theme carries on from the lyric video, which debuted earlier this month.

“It was really cool,” Iggy told MTV. “It’s in the same theme. We are not going to be killing people in a lyric video and then do bubble gum or something in the video, it’s the same realm. It’s fairly evident that the theme is kind of mod and monochromatic. Mod girl would be the theme, I would say to the whole single film.”

Big Sean, who whispers on the horn-heavy record, is also expected to make a cameo.

“Problem,” which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, is the first single off Ariana’s sophomore album, due in August.
