Ariana Grande will have a new album out in less than two weeks.
Grande took the less is more approach when abruptly announcing her new album in the most nonchalant manner possible. On Wednesday, Grande took to Twitter and simply announced: “I can’t wait to give you my new album this month.”
i can’t wait to give u my album this month

The tweet blew up immediately and has generated more than 230,000 likes, 66,000 quote tweets and 59,000 retweets in approximately 30 minutes after it was published.
Grande has not released a full-length project since Thank U, Next on Feb. 2, 2019. That project was her fourth chart-topping album and produced singles like “7 Rings” and the titular “Thank U, Next”. Grande has released two songs thus far this year: “Stuck with U” with Justin Bieber and “Rain on Me” with Lady Gaga.
On the weekend, she announced that Positions will be the title of the first track and album. First by posting a slow motion video of her typing “Postitions” out and then with a link to her website that includes two countdown clocks.
Presumably one for the single on the 23rd and another for the album a week later. Naturally, her website crashed with everyone checking to see what the big announcement was.
