The lyric video for the track, which Grande’s been teasing for days on Twitter, is shot in grey scale, but Grande’s issues with her ex are black and white.
“Tell me tell me baby / why can’t you leave me?” Grande wonders on the track, which has her lamenting a love affair that has her trapped in a vicious cycle she’s determined to stop.
Once she’s realizes she’s got “one less problem without ya,” well there’s the curb, there’s your face, enjoy eating pavement.
Grande’s collaboration with Azalea was less of a problem.
“I fell in love with Iggy when I saw this video of her performing ‘Work’ live, and I just thought she was so original and I loved the way she pronounced her words,” she told Rolling Stone. “I thought we would make the perfect girl-power duo for ‘Problem’, so I’m very grateful that she did it with me. I love meeting people I admire and discovering that they’re really chill human beings and nothing’s gone to their head.”
