Ariana Grande & Victoria Monét's "Monopoly" Music Video Is Already a Meme
With a cameo from your favorite “Instagram dancing guy,” Donté Colley.
Ahead of the Montreal and Toronto stops of her Sweetener world tour, Ariana Grande has released a surprise new track titled “Monopoly” alongside her best friend Victoria Monét. Marking the first official joint track between the two artists, the song is accompanied by a very memeable visual inspired by the Instagram videos of dancer, Donté Colley.
Often dubbed the “motivational dancing guy,” Colley is a Toronto-based dancer who recently rose to social media fame with his profile filled with mood-boosting clips of himself dancing among flying emojis and encouraging words. Earlier this year, the Instagram sensation has been tapped to front the launch campaign of Glossier Play, the new makeup line by Glossier.
Directed by Alfredo Flores and Ricky Alvarez, not only is the “Monopoly” music video edited in a similar, playful style to that of Colley’s videos, but it also features a cameo from the dancer himself as he bops around with Grande and Monét.
With a catchy, bouncy beat, the track itself is a powerful anthem that shows the duo celebrating their confidence and recent success: “Bad vibes, get off of me/ Outta here with that fuckery/ Treat my goals like property/ Collect them like Monopoly.”
