After what felt like the longest countdown in Instagram history, Ariana Grande‘s “Problem” video is finally here and it was definitely worth the wait. The 20-year-old takes it back to the swinging ’60s in the mod-inspired video, dancing for her life — bye, Rihanna! — in a cute retro outfit. Of course, the Yours Truly diva isn’t alone in the Nev Todorovic-directed visual.

Ari is joined by chart-busting Aussie femcee Iggy Azalea and what appear to be Big Sean‘s lips. The former guest star makes the biggest impression with her towering pile of hair. It’s all very Austin Powers meets Barbarella, which is a surprisingly cute concoction — particularly when you throw in some talented break dancers. Watch up top.

Did Ariana’s video deliver the goods? Let us know in the comments below.
