The list of people who love Ariana Grande's new song "7 Rings" is almost as long as one of her receipts. There are dance videos and workout routines inspired by the bop, and on Jan. 28, an American Sign Language version of her extravagant music video dropped.
Late last year, America's Next Top Model winner and activist Nyle DiMarco asked Grande (and music platform Vevo) to add closed captions to her "Thank U, Next" music video for deaf and hard of hearing fans. Grande responded and agreed it was a "dope idea."

Months later, DiMarco teamed up with director Jake Wilson to give viewers a version of "7 Rings" in sign language. He re-created several of the video's most iconic scenes, and fans responded with lots of love. Even Grande chimed in with her approval! "Love this so much," she tweeted. Watch the video above, and bask in the experience, blessed by Ms. Grande herself.
