Ariana Grande's recent single, thank u, next, created quite a buzz when the audio of the song came out shortly after she announced split with fiance Pete Davidson.

Grande addressed all her relationships in one go - quite controversially, if we might add - in a three minute track. The video of the hit number is finally out and if anything; it's equally entertaining.

The 25-year-old crooner has been sharing few pictures of her upcoming video on Instagram. It was obvious the song will consist parodies of some classic teenage films: Mean Girls, Legally Blonde, Bring it on and 13 going on 30. 

However, it has garnered over 30 million views in its first 10 hours of its release. Compiled from BBC, here are four interesting details you might have missed in Grande's latest tracks:

1. The teenage dramas

After teasing the fans for a hefty period of time with few glimpses and confirmations about her upcoming video, the Dangerous Woman crooner didn't disappoint with the five minute-and-a-half video.

Grande recreated some famous teenage rom-coms for Thank u, next. She portrayed the infamous high-school queen Regina George from Mean Girls - and guess what? There's a burn book as well!

She also donned Reese Witherspoon as Elle Wood from Legally Blonde. There's a cheer-leading sequence from Bring it on and the we see her as Jennifer Garner's Jenna Rink from 13 going on 30!

And let's just say she's essaying all the roles quite perfectly to be honest.

2. The cameos

We see quite a few cameos in the song as well. Momager Kris Jenner makes an appearance as Regina's 'cool mom' in the Christmas song sequence from the 2004 comedy - and it felt like she was made for the role!

Other than Jenner, Jonathan Bennett is seen in his original role as Aaron Samuels for the song.

Legally Blonde's Jennifer Coolidge - portrayed as Paulette Bonaforte - was also seen giving sound advises in the song.

3. The exes

It was pretty obvious that her exes would be featured in the video. The question was how. And the answer is the burn book! We see three of Grande's four exes pictured in the infamous book.

We see Pete Davidson, Big Sean and Ricky Alvarez.

And if you're still wondering who ditched whom in her recent romance, let us break it - it was the singer herself who got cold feet!

However, her fourth ex - Mac Miller - who died of drug overdose recently, wasn't mentioned in the book.

4. The minute details:

Other than the evident mentions, there were quite a few important details that even we had to double check.

With the ongoing refugees and immigrant debacle in the US, Grande is seen reading a book on the law and order situation on the same in her Legally Blonde scene.

In another Legally Blonde reference, the One Last Time singer is seen driving a Porsche with a licence plate that says "7 Rings" - the internet thinks this is a reference to friendship rings she and her six best friends have.

During her cheer-leading skit, the uniform is plastered with the initials TUN, which might indicate towards the song - Thank U, Next.
