Ariana Grande has more new music coming!


Ari got fans all excited about an upcoming single with good friend and frequent collaborator Victoria Monet.


“man, let’s drop it tomorrow night @VictoriaMonet 🖤 seven rings is ab to be number one for eight weeks and the album might go back to no. 1 too…. we need to celebrate tbh ! life too short and too sweet rn. 🧚🏼‍♂️ hmmmmmmm,” she tweeted on Wednesday (March 27).


Before you start scouring the internet for that new track, it’s not out yet. Although Ari initially wanted to drop the single on Thursday night, she later decided to push back the release to Monday.


But, what’s up with Ari continuously dropping new songs? She just released two albums within 6 months of each other – Sweetener last August and thank u, next in February. And, she has more new music (We’re not complaining though).


On the same night, Ari opened up about her mental health and why she’s been coming out with a lot of new songs in a since-deleted post on Instagram story (a screenshot of the post was shared by the Daily Mail).


“Jus [sic] saying, thanks for being supportive of my random, impulsive and excessive music releases. The first few years of this were really hard on my mental health and energy,” she wrote. “I was so tired from promo trips and was always losing my voice and never knew what city I was in when I woke up. It was so much. It was worth it and I am grateful for everything I learned and accomplished when I did things that way, of course.”


“But I just feel so much more connected now and yeah… If I feel like I’m able to make special things with my incredible friends quickly, why not share them right away?” she continued. “It’s a very dope feeling and has breathed so much air back into my lil lungs. Thank u thank u.”


And, on Twitter, when a fan praised her decision to release her songs on her own terms, saying it was the “best decision” she made, Ari responded, “It feels sm healthier & sm more authentic & rewarding. regardless of the outcome, i prefer this bc it’s real & feels happy. no games.”


“I love music. i love the ppl i make it w. these past few months made me fall in love w this job all over again. so thank u sm for being down,’ she added.


Of course, fans are over the moon at the news of getting more music from the 25-year-old pop star.


Ari has been a busy busy girl. After dropping two albums, she just kicked off her Sweetener World Tour earlier this month, and, now, she’s got new music coming. Amazing!
