Today, Billboard’s “synthpop purveyor..” and one of Tik Tok’s favorite storytellers Ariana and the Rose releases the video to her hypnotic disco banger “Fuck Boy,” the latest off her forthcoming debut album ‘Lonely Hearts Club’ (out July 29).
In the video (all one continuous shot), Ariana takes matters into her own hands when it comes to a lover who wronged her, with a campy reveal that needs to be seen.

“This is one of my favorite videos I've ever made!” stated Ariana. “We really decided to go bold and shoot it as a one-take video. Scarlet Moreno (the director) and I wanted the video to have the energy of a live performance, with reveals and twists and turns. The concept has a bit of a wink to it where the audience gets to be in on it with me.”
On July 28th, Ariana is doing a special show at the Mercury Lounge in NYC to celebrate the release of her upcoming debut album. The night will be filled with drinks and Ariana performing songs off the album. Tickets HERE.

The comments section of her posts are flooded with fans reveling in the irreverent accuracy & playfulness of the posts, with some people in particular proclaiming “these are so fucking funny”,“Ohhhh so true!” and “This series needs to win a short form digital content Emmy Award.”
