Ranking Every One of Ariana Grande’s Music Video Kisses from So-So to Sexy

By  | 

Ranking Taylor Swift‘s music video kisses was a daunting task. Like… that girl produces a LOT of singles, therefore, creates dozens of videos. So when it came time to do the same for Ariana Grande, it was a piece of cake. The 22-year-old has less than a couple of handfuls of singles, and lip-locks are a rarity. Nevertheless, we did it — just for you Arianators out there. Here are Ariana Grande’s music video kisses, ranked from so-so to sexy:

4. “One Last Time” — The futuristic music video, featuring Ari’s Victorious co-star, Matt Bennett, is at the bottom of the pack, as it’s more about the forehead touches rather than actual mouth-on-mouth action. But they have kissed before on their Nickelodeon show, though, so we figured we’d remind you of that.

3. “Right There” — Before Patrick Schwarzenegger ever hooked up with Miley Cyrus in real life, he was kissing Ariana in her Romeo & Juliet-inspired music video. Or, rather, kissing her hand. They did get awfully close in the pool, though, which was pretty darn sexy.

2. “Patience” — The tune technically belongs to Ariana’s ex, Big Sean, but it’s still a music video featuring the former Nickelodeon star, so it counts! What makes this moment so great was that it was a true kiss between the former couple, which means the chemistry was on point. If Big Sean didn’t pull away so soon, it could’ve had real potential to take the #1 spot.

1. “The Way” — Lo and behold, Ariana’s first-ever music video kiss claimed the top placement! What you’re looking at is the most PG version of all the smooches, but it got a little PG-13 up in there with the flirting and neck kisses. Ariana said at the time of the video’s release that she wished to break out of her Nickelodeon mold. She stated, “I made out with a rapper in the video. I made the point I wanted to make. And I was excited to do so after so many years of pretending to be somebody else in front of a lot of people.”
