“The Light Is Coming” marks the fifth collaboration between Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, following “Bang Bang,” “Side To Side,” “Get On Your Knees” and the recently-released “Bed.” This latest duet is for Grande’s forthcoming album, Sweetner, arriving August 17. It was produced by Pharrell which makes sense given that it sorta sounds like his Rihanna-assisted “Lemon” but with a house-ier beat.
Hours after premiering the track, the accompanying visual has arrived. The Dave Meyers-directed clip features multiple clones of Ari strolling around in a dark spooky forest. Grande’s head-to-toe look was provided by Reebok which is why the video premiered on Reebok.com. If you like what you see, you can purchase the shoes, jacket and more on the brand’s official website.
Check out the “The Light Is Coming” video below. It’s a magically trippy romp.
