Ariana Grande è nella Foresta Proibita nel video di “The Light is Coming” – video e testo

Tempo per la lettura: 5 minuti circa

Ariana Grande continua la promozione del suo ultimo album Sweetener, che vedrà la luce il prossimo 17 Agosto.

Ariana Grande, dopo il rilascio del singolo apripista No Tears Left to Cry, in memoria della tragedia di Orlando dell’anno scorso, decide di pubblicare il tanto anticipato singolo promozionale.

La traccia si chiama The Light is Coming, è prodotta da Pharrell Williams e cantata insieme alla grande amica Nicki Minaj.

Arriviamo infatti alla quarta collaborazione tra le due artiste, dopo Bang Bang di Jessie J, Side to Side e l’ultimo singolo della rapper statunitense Bed.

È stata pubblicata anche la clip ufficiale del brano, che sembra essere a tema Harry Potter.

All’inizio troviamo Nicki Minaj che un po’ si confonde con l’oscurità della Foresta Proibita, per poi lasciare spazio ad Ariana Grande, che comincia a cantare roteando la Profezia luminosa che ha tra le mani.

Tutto poi finisce in una specie di rave party tra gli alberi, con nebbia, luci rosa intermittenti al neon e 700 cloni della minipony che saltellano tra un ramo e un cespuglio.

Su Twitter Ariana Grande ha inoltre spiegato perché ha usato una foto capovolta per la copertina del nuovo disco:

Ho mostrato una foto ad Aaron, lui era seduto di fronte a me e mi ha detto “mi piace molto di più sottosopra” e l’ho trovata una cosa carina. In quel periodo mi sentivo un po’ sottosopra e la semplicità di quella cosa mi ha fatto pensare “oh che cosa carina, il mio migliore amico è un genio”

Cosa ne pensate di questa scelta? Scrivetecelo nei commenti!

 

Ariana Grande – The Light is Coming (ft. Nicki Minaj)

[Intro]
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead

[Nicki Minaj]
Ay yo, trophy wife, out you won me
Until you had to find out it’s one me
Now you benched, aww, your bum knee
Now I’m the bad guy, call me Chun-Li (ooh)
‘Cause you was slippin’, yep, you clumsy
And everything I peep, can’t just unsee
Sips tea, and it’s unsweet
Respect bad gyal when mi done speak
Now we shooting the shot like drive-by
Why you had to make me go call up my side guy?
Can’t let a f-boy eff up my nice vibes
Yo Ariana, come let me give you a high five

[Ariana Grande]
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead

What did she say? What did he say?
You don’t listen ’cause you know everything
You don’t even need dreams
Tellin’ everybody, “Stay woke, don’t sleep”

Ah, gonna break that shit down
You don’t wait until they wait another round
Ah, guess you’re way above it now
And that’s your way to love it now

How can they tell you shit that you’ve been through?
They are so confused, who cares about the rational?
If it ain’t your view
That’s the bottom line
Know-it-all (know-it-all)
Give you a box of chances, every time you blow it all (blow it all)
As if it were shade, you would just throw it all (throw it all)
It’s like you’re trying not to glow at all (glow at all)
Know-it-all (know-it-all)

The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole, stole, st-st-stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole, stole, stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole, stole, st-st-stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole, stole, stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead

Why do we have chemistry?
With a need for speed
Doin’ things that trouble clings to
And burns off our wings

Ah, gonna break that shit down
You don’t wait until they wait another round
Ah, guess you’re way above it now
And that’s your way to love it now

How can they tell you shit that you’ve been through?
They are so confused, who cares about the rational?
If it ain’t your view
That’s the bottom line
Know-it-all (know-it-all)
Give you a box of chances, every time you blow it all (blow it all)
As if it were shade, you would just throw it all (throw it all)
It’s like you’re trying not to glow at all (glow at all)
Know-it-all (know-it-all)

The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole, stole, st-st-stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole, stole, stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole, stole, st-st-stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead
The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole
You wouldn’t let anybody speak and instead
