It's here. It's live. It's everything you could want and then eight more things.
Last night, the world stood by the computer waiting for Ariana Grande to release her new song, “Focus.”
The countdown started.

OF COURSE, THIS SONG WAS GREAT. It has that classic Ariana electro-patter verse structure followed by taking things REAL slow and sultry in the chorus. Standard Grande.
It's like watching Babe Ruth take batting practice or Robert Kraft make mac 'n cheese.
OF COURSE, THIS MUSIC VIDEO WAS BAFFLINGLY ENTERTAINING.
I didn't know someone could make neon pastels, but somehow she did.
It's like if Wes Anderson was super into EDM and Tokyo pop. Also, Ariana's hair looks like cotton candy, the most empowering and brassy carnival food out there.
OF COURSE, THIS EARLY RELEASE SENT TWITTER INTO A MANIC SPIRAL OF EMOJI AND CAPITAL LETTERS.
Fuck this is perfect #FocusVideo — focus (@bunnies_butera) October 30, 2015
