Ariana Grande has revealed the video games that she was referring to in her hit song, ‘Six Thirty’.
Before the ‘Motive’ singer premiered the remix video for ‘34+35’, she participated in a fan Q&A session on Twitter. During the course of the Q&A, a fan asked her what songs inspired the lyrics “What you gon’ do when I’m bored and I wanna play video games at 2 AM?”.
Grande said that at the time of writing, she was playing games like Mario Kart and Super Mario Party, but if she were to relate the lyric to a game she’s currently playing, it would be Sackboy: A Big Adventure.
“If I sang it right now, I’d be talking about Sackboy. We beat Sackboy, and yeah, that’s a big one. That was a doozy, that game,” she said.
The game’s official Twitter account snipped the clip and shared it to social media, thanking the singer for her support: “Our team and our wonderful community are super-excited to hear that it’s #SackboyABigAdventure that you wanna play at 2AM! It’s literally music to our ears!”.

Sackboy: A Big Adventure released in November as a launch title for the PS5. It also released for the PS4. NME’s Stacey Henley said in a three-star review that the game is “a perfectly competent video game, though perhaps not best suited to a launch title for a console that prides itself on speed and innovation”.
“Despite having a handful of interesting mechanics available, Sackboy is never too interested in using them and instead opts to play it safe far too often,” Henley said.
