Ariana Grande has released the star-studded music video for her latest hit single, Thank U, Next.

There's even a cameo from Kris Jenner in the role she was born to play.

Ariana Grande's much-anticipated "Thank U, Next" has arrived and it's already making big headlines.

Jessie Wade is a news writer at IGN and will probably be watching one of these movies tonight. The track has stayed at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 since its release three weeks ago. Mean Girls leading man Aaron Samuels, played by the original Jonathan Bennett, definitely still thinks so. Kris Jenner doing a shockingly impressive Amy Poehler impression6. He was, of course, referring to all the messages Grande writes to her famous ex-boyfriends in her version of the iconic "Burn Book".

We then get to see a slew of Victorious alumni.

Troye wore a black varsity jacket as he stands inside a bathroom, keeping with the USA high school theme of the music video.
