Watch Ariana Grande, Victoria Monet’s Rooftop Celebration for ‘Monopoly’ Video
Pair have been working together since Grande’s 2014 LP ‘My Everything’
Ariana Grande and Victoria MonÃ©t have released a brand new collaboration titled “Monopoly.” MonÃ©t has co-written many of Grande’s latest songs, including Number One hits “Thank U, Next” and “7 Rings.”
Above a simple, bouncy beat, the pair sing in a clipped, soft fashion. They flaunt their recent success on the chorus claiming to “Treat my goals like property/Collect them like Monopoly.” Along the way they reference how quickly Thank U, Next came together (“Remember when we made a fucking album off that Clicquot?”) and the fact that 90% of the royalties for Grande’s long-running Number One hit “7 Rings” goes to the Rodgers & Hammerstein estate for its Sound of Music sample.
“Monopoly” also has both MonÃ©t and Grande singing “I like women and men” on the song’s chorus. While Grande has not commented on her sexuality, the chorus may be simply addressing MonÃ©t, who came out on Twitter in November. Grande has not commented further on the song.
In the video, the pair of friends and collaborators dance on a roof top as emojis fly across the screen. It has a home video quality to the entire clip, reminiscent of BeyoncÃ©’s hotel-made “7/11” visual.
Grande is currently touring in support of both Thank U, Next and Sweetener. Both albums debuted at Number One. MonÃ©t has been working with Grande since 2014’s My Everything as a songwriter, vocal producer and tour mate.
