The clip opens with the three artists lounging in an opulent pool room, clad in lingerie and sipping champagne. It follows them through different rooms of a fancy hotel suite, which is revealed during an interlude where Grande orders room service for the trio.
Doja delivers her verse draped over a velvet chaise lounge, while Megan twerks in a marble bathtub for her part of the song. The television set and home video-style footage from the clip’s teaser trailer also make appearances.

The trio had been teasing the music video’s release on social media over the past week, sharing behind-the-scenes selfies to their respective accounts.
The captions for their posts gave little away about what was to come, with Megan simply writing “Thee cuties” alongside the photo, while Grande captioned hers with a heart and Doja an hourglass.
Grande recently confirmed that a deluxe edition of ‘Positions’ would be dropping later this month, featuring the ’34+35′ remix along with four new songs. Taking to YouTube Live prior to the music video’s premiere, she shared that the names of these tracks will be ‘someone like u (interlude)’, ‘test drive’, ‘worst behavior’ and ‘main thing’.
“I always envisioned them coming out as a part of this era, this chapter, this storyline, this album,” she said of the tracks. “It felt like they needed to be heard and they needed to kind of give the album a second life down the line.”
Grande released her sixth studio album ‘Positions’ in October last year, featuring the original ’34+35′ as well as collaborations with The Weeknd (‘off the table’), Ty Dolla $ign (‘safety net’) and another track with Doja, ‘motive’.
Speaking of the album in a three-star review, NME‘s Hannah Mylrea wrote that “‘Positions’ lacks the megawatt pop belters of previous releases”.
“As an introduction to the next era of Grande’s career, it’s solid, but you can’t help but feel it’s missing some of her trademark sparkle.”
Meanwhile, Megan released her latest album, ‘Good News’, last year, which NME gave four-stars in a review, saying “this debut finds Megan Thee Stallion determined to retain her freewheeling positivity in a difficult year”.
As for Doja, she hinted last September that her new album was finished and ready, but was holding off on its release.
“It’s all ready,” she told US artist Fat Joe during an Instagram live.
“I hate that I’m holding on to it right now, I don’t like this because every time I go on Twitter, I go on Instagram I see everybody is like, ‘Put it out, put it out’, and I’m like, ‘I would’, like, you have to plan things accordingly and there’s a lot going on.”
