This dangerous woman in back in the studio!
Yes, we know that Ariana Grande has been working con the still untitled follow-up to her 2016 album Dangerous Woman, hand in hand with music master Pharrell Williams, who recently described her music as “next-level” (do you get our excitement?!). But today, we finally have confirmation of the progress of this mysterious project, which still has no release date, but it could be a lot closer than you think!
On Wednesday night, Ari responded to a fan who posted an allegedly new photo of the singer working in the recording studio. “I’m pretty sure dis [photo] is very old or fake. If u wanted confirmation that I’ve been workin why didn’t you just ask?” Grande wrote on her Instagram Stories.
Almost immediately after her intriguing reply, the newly-blonde dispelled all doubts by publishing a Polaroid and a video of herself sitting in the studio, working on what we can only assume is the best pop song of all time.
Two months ago, Ariana admitted she was keen to get back into the studio as soon as possible after wrapping up her 72-dates Dangerous Woman Tour.
“I don’t even want to go home and relax. At the same time, [the tour] has been a lot emotionally. It’s been very challenging for all of us involved. So it would be nice to really hold my loved ones close for a little while, stay home for a little bit,” she said.
Ariana then continued: “But knowing me, I’m going to be in the studio because I love it, and I want to create. I started an album already a year ago, over a year ago, but I want to keep creating, and it’s not done yet. So I’m going to take my sweet time, so I’ll be rested and ready to go again as soon as possible.”
Well, Arianators, it seems like the day has finally come!
