Ariana Grande’s next album, Dangerous Woman, coming May 20, is shaping up quite nicely. So far, she’s tapped rap greats like Nicki Minaj, Future, and Lil Wayne. The latter guests on her track “Let Me Love You,” a slow pulsing R&B track. Today, the music video for that song was released on Apple Music.

Grant Singer, the man that brought flames to The Weeknd’s “The Hills,” and a riot to Vic Mensa’s “U Mad”, directed the video. While there’s no trace of his distorted story lines, Singer’s quality cinematography is undeniable. Here, Grande appears next to Lil Wayne at her most natural. There’s no high budget band playing in the background, or a choreographed dance routine, and that makes it all the more refreshing.

If rumblings on Twitter are true, Grande fans can expect at least two more music videos: for “Into You” and “Side To Side” featuring Nicki Minaj.
