Ariana Grande Gets Sexy in ‘Love Me Harder’ Video Featuring The Weeknd

Today, starlet songstress Ariana Grande releases the music video for "Love Me Harder," the third single off her latest album, My Everything. Grande (who previously teetered on a childlike/sex kitten) is now skewed to the latter; uumm, just note the title of the song!

Rocking her now-staple cat ears and revealing lingerie, Grande shows a more sexy side and she makes big eyes locked away in a sand-filled castle, awaiting her true-love to come and “love her harder” like a princess in distress. Enter The Weeknd, who performs his verse on a separate set, then the two come together at the end.

This is a definite attempt to grow up her image and shed her Nickelodeon past.

Do you think it's working?
