Ariana Grande is in a state of mind she wants to be in all the time and that includes playing with Nintendo. Sounds pretty fun.
The pop star, who is preparing to release her fourth studio album Sweetener, appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier this month. While on set, Grande, Fallon and house band The Roots shots a musical performance of her lead single “No Tears Left To Cry,” ditching The Tonight Show‘s classroom instruments sketch and updating it to Nintendo Labo Instruments.
Just releasing the video this week, the futuristic instruments were made from cardboard and Nintendo Switch consoles, including guitars, pianos, drums, bass, and an electric fishing rod. Grande took lead vocals, as well as a Nintendo Labo triangle.
Looking like a video shoot for the latest OK Go single, the Roots, Fallon and Grande were dressed in solid coloured jumpsuits inside a white room, with splashes of colour helping to bring out the positive energy of Grande’s latest single.
Although Grande has yet to announce the official release date for Sweetener, she did tell Fallon that the album should be arriving in three months and that she has ‘something big’ planned for the 20th of May, June, and July. For this month, that something big is a performance at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards.
