Ariana Grande is known for her Broadway-worthy vocals, while Nicki Minaj has clearly cemented herself as one of the greatest rappers of all time. What happens when the two women team up in the studio? An instant hit.
The two powerhouse vocalists brought “Side To Side,” their brand new single off Grande’s 2016 album Dangerous Woman, to life at the MTV VMAs last night. Inspired by the Olympics and her Soul Cycle membership, Grande kicked off the performance on a spin bicycle, then hit the pummel horse before joining Minaj and a group of scantily clad men for a not-so subtle sexually explicit ending.
Thankfully for fans of Grande and Minaj, the show didn’t stop there. They’ve now dropped the video for “Side To Side” and things are going from hot to hotter.
Following in the footsteps of Britney Spears’ latest video for “Make Me” and asserting the female gaze, the women showed off their famous figures in bodysuits and bustiers while a group of half-naked muscular men pose around them. Launching initially on Guess.com, the “Side To Side” video includes subtle product placement of the clothing company’s new workout line. Between “Side To Side” and Kanye West’s new video for “Fade,” fitness centres should be prepared for a new rush of members signing up today.
This isn’t the first time the two artists have teamed up. In 2014, Grande and Minaj released their infectious track “Bang Bang” with Jessie J, which they also performed at the VMAs that year.
