For the first verse, the singer is appears accompanied of her friends shutting down the block as she rocks a pair of short shorts and a midriff-baring top which according to Garibaldi, is reminiscent of Mariah Carey's ensemble in the 1995 Fantasy video. Halfway through the video, another scene is introduced, with Grande dancing and singing in the streets with a "frilly top and high-waist shorts on." Lucas Villa from AXS noted that Grande dances in a New York City street, she also appears with her dancers singing in a bus. Eventually Grande makes her way back to the house party, which is complete with "inflatable microphones and boom boxes."
