The Hannah Lux Davis-directed clip sees Grande walk in slow motion through busy settings including a scene that looks like New York’s Grand Central station. As if alluding to ‘God Is A Woman’, the previous single from her recent album, Grande projects a celestial image of herself with her head in the clouds.
‘Breathin’ comes days after the US pop star released empowerment ballad, ‘Thank u, next’, which hears the singer running through a list of exes including Pete Davidson, to whom she was recently engaged.
Grande’s brother called the surprise release a “powerful”, saying that it broadcasts an important message about self-love.
In other news, a leaked album believed to be the work of Grande was seemingly pure conjecture after a source close to NME denied its affiliation with the singer.
Earlier this week Grande told fans how therapy had “saved her life” and urged her followers to seek help if they need it. The 25-year-old’s fans were targeted in a deadly terror attack that happened at her concert at Manchester Arena in May 2017.
The pop star also announced a North American tour recently in support of ‘Sweetener’, which begins in March 2019. Normani will support.
