Ariana Grande has been dropping hints about her seventh studio album for quite some time, and she’s finally given us a taste of things to come. The music video for her comeback single “Yes, And?” is here and it sees the Grammy winner facing her harshest critics.

The Christian Breslauer-directed visual opens with a group of critics exchanging cruel comments about Grande after being invited to attend her exclusive new performance. They enter the room filled with statues that crumble to ash just a few seconds later, making room for Grande and her dancers to wow everyone in the room with their epic choreography.

Grande’s latest visual pays homage to Paula Abdul’s “Cold Hearted”, and its ballroom atmosphere also drew comparisons to Madonna’s “Vogue” and Beyoncé’s “Break My Soul”.

“Yes, And?” was released as the first single from Grande’s upcoming seventh studio album, and she dropped some major hints about it at the very start of the video. The “AG7” card includes coordinates that point to Montauk, New York. This small town was prominently featured in Jim Carrey’s 2004 film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, hinting that Grande’s next album could be titled Eternal Sunshine.
