Ariana Grande Gets R-Rated in ’34+35′ Live Performance Video: Watch

Ariana Grande’s live performance video series with Vevo just got R-rated. The popstar dropped the fourth of her Positions performance videos Thursday (July 15), this time featuring her singing one of the record’s dirtiest tracks, “34+35.”

In the new video, the camera follows Grande as she dances around and sings the song’s raunchy lyrics with a grin, her band members bopping their heads to the energetic tempo. The song is both fast and wordy, but even so, Grande doesn’t miss a beat — nor does she miss a chance to flex her fabulous voice with a powerful vocal run. If you’re still not sure what the song title means, skip to the 2:55 mark — Grande puts it into simpler terms as she closes out the performance.

Grande’s string of collaborations with Vevo has treated fans to exclusive footage of the 28-year-old singing in the center of a custom fairyland-meets-nightclub setting. Executive produced by creative directors Micah Bickham and Ed Walker, the videos all find her and her band surrounded by a garden of neon flowers and lit by a color-changing light fixture hung from the ceiling.

The “34+35” performance follows three other Vevo live sessions of Positions tracks “POV,” “Safety Net” (featuring an appearance from Ty Dolla $ign), and most recently, “My Hair.” It’s unknown which songs Grande will perform next, but the singer did confirm in an Instagram story Wednesday (July 14) that there are several more Vevo Live videos on the way. “Hang tight, there are three more coming…” she wrote, tagging Vevo.
