Watch: Ariana Grande Releases Best Video Of Her Career ‘Focus’
Ariana Grande has released the official video for her new song Focus. Written by Ariana alongside Savan Kotecha, Ilya and Peter Svensson, the song was produced by Max Martin and Ilya and serves as the lead single for her upcoming third studio album Moonlight.
Singer and actor Jamie Foxx sing’s the song’s chorus as an uncredited artist, much like Big Sean did with the Iggy Azalea assisted Problem.
Featuring a clanging percussion, Focus can be compared to producer Rich Harrison’s signature sound, which was made prominent with Amerie’s 1 Thing. Upon release, Focus earned positive reviews from music, though Ariana’s vocals have been deemed “lackuster.”
The video is quite colorful and can be compared to Hilary Duff‘s Sparks video, which was released during the summer, as they use the same color tones. Take a look at the Hannah Lux Davis directed clip below:
