Why has no one ever sampled "Popular" from the hit Broadway musical Wicked in a pop song? Probably because Wicked composer Stephen Schwartz never authorized it — until now.

Joined by Nickelodeon starlet Ariana Grande, out performer Mika puts a inspired twist on the show-queeny favorite in his latest single, "Popular Song," an upbeat antibullying anthem that empowers unpopular kids to rise above it all. And if that involves a Tim Burtonesque revenge fantasy as imagined in the new video, so be it.

Check out the "Popular Song" video below.
