It’s been almost two years since Ariana Grande graced us with her transformative album, Dangerous Woman, effectively ending her image as a pop princess and moving straight on to seductive songstress.
After bops like “Side to Side” and “Bad Decisions” ruled the summer of 2016 alongside some of the album’s indisputable bests like “Into You” and “Be Alright,” Grande poured her energy into the touring life.
After an explosion detonated outside the Manchester arena where Grande was performing last May, the singer rallied with some of the biggest names in music to put on a moving benefit concert for those affected by the tragedy. The event helped raise funds to support the families that lost loved ones, ensuring each would receive hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Now Grande is letting everyone know she’s been busy in the studio since 2017 tested her, teasing a snippet of a new song on Instagram. “See you next year” the caption reads, as Grande’s voice sings the opening bars of what sounds like a soulful slow jam. Hopefully the tease means full new music is almost ready to share. Listen and watch, below.
