Ariana Grande is set to release a new album at the end of the month. In anticipation, the powerhouse singer has let loose a first preview in “Positions”. In keeping with the theme of the season, the song’s accompanying video imagines an all-female White House, with Ariana herself serving as commander-in-chief. Watch it below.
Update: Grande has confirmed that her new album, also titled Positions, will arrive on October 30th. She’s also shared the 14-song tracklist which includes collaborations with The Weeknd, Doja Cat, and Ty Dolla $ign.
Grande has enjoyed keeping fans in suspense over her new music. She previously teased “Positions” with a video of herself spelling out the word on a keyboard with green backlighting. Meanwhile, her official website placed a countdown clock on the home page for the song (midnight October 23rd) and album launch (midnight October 30th). After posting a snippet of several breathy vocal tracks a few weeks ago, the Grammy-winning pop singer confirmed on Twitter that she had, indeed, turned in her album mixes.
Even beyond prepping for this new album cycle, Grande has stayed busy throughout the pandemic. She performed her smash duet with Lady Gaga, “Rain on Me”, at the virtual 2020 MTV VMAs, as well as collaborated with Justin Bieber on wholesome pop song “Stuck With U”, which benefited the First Responders Children’s Foundation. Grande also performed a Zoom rendition of “I Won’t Say I’m In Love” on Disney’s Family Singalong, flanked by her own vocals.
