17- “Let Me Love You” ft. Lil Wayne
This is not her best video. Ariana lounging around on bed and couch asking her man to love. Lil Wayne smoking. Video scenario is average. But we still need to appreciate the curly hairstyle that Grande carries. She looks flawless.
16- “Dangerous Woman”
The video depicts Grande’s transformation from a Nickelodeon star to a Dangerous Woman. This might be one of her best singles but the video was just OK. Again Ari posing around the room, playing with with curtains, singing on bed in a black lingerie. Lol but I prefer the cappella version better.
15- “The Way” ft. Mac Miller
This is one of her cutest videos. Ariana hanging around with Mac Miller whom she is currently dating and no doubt, they make the perfect celeb couple. The video features Grande, Mac and some dancers dancing around in a room filled with balloons, and Ariana poses for pictures taken by Mac.

12- “Beauty and the Beast” ft. John Legend
John playing guitar, Ariana in a rose red gown with straight hairs in an captivating scene in Beast’s castle. The performance happens right in the middle of ballroom dance scene of Belle and The Beast. Just perfect and magical.
11- “Baby I”
It is a 90’s inspired throwback type video. Ariana dancing with people in streets and on bus. Eventual change of costumes and the dance moves make it worth to watch. One of my faves!
It is a “Problem” -esque banger. Ariana in platinum and purple hairs performing several choreographed scenes with dancers. Cameras focus, starry, glitter, fancy costumes and major purple vibes!
9- “One Last Time”
The video bring a Victorious reunion. The Earth is about to end as the tail of a comet is about to pass. Everyone is panic, but Grande calm and runs to get to see the comet closer. Grande then manages to reach the roof top with her boyfriend, they both embrace and the comet crashes which leads the Earth to end. Ariana rocks in futuristic costume.
8- “Popular Song” ft. Mika
It features a gothic theme, being set in a ‘spooky, dark, “Addams Family”-esque high school’. The video is of vengeful nature, standing against bullies.
7- “Side To Side” ft. Nicki Minaj
Ariana riding a bike and doing some choreography! Then she and Nicki make appearance in a sauna with male models.
6- “No Tears Left To Cry”
Ariana returned to the music scene after the Manchester tragedy with “No Tears Left To Cry”. This song is upbeat and a pop banger. Ariana pays tribute to the the victims of tragedy. The fairytale music video has the songstress in various full-length gowns, dancing on the side of skyscrapers, and gracefully falling through the starry sky. In the end, she plays fetch with a dog. The sun is rising behind them. The bee at the end symbolizes Manchester victims.
5- “Right There” ft. Big Sean
It is a modern Romeo-Juliet-esque video or call a short film. Romeo is played by Patrick Schwarzenegger. Elizabeth Gillies also makes an appearance. The two navigate the party trying to find each other and finally meet and get together at the end of the video.

This is the song the I keep re-watching again and again. It now has 1 Billion views on YouTube making it one of the greatest videos of all time. The video has a retro 60’s inspired theme. Some light choreography and camera poses!!
1-“Santa Tell Me”
Ok! I know Problem is iconic and great. But this video always put a smile on my face. Ariana’s ponytail makes appearance. Scenario revolves around Ariana having fun around the house with her friends in silly animal ears and singing about Christmas love. This is a total holiday treat. Better call it a sweet winter slumber party! One of the greatest videos of all time. Fight me on this!!
