2020 is about to get another surprise, this time for a good reason. Earlier this month, Ariana Grande teased on Twitter that she couldn’t wait to drop her album. Knowing that Grande is good for her word, fans have been anticipating a single and album release date since October is quickly coming to an end. Fans soon noticed that the star’s official website had been blacked out, and earlier today, Grande tweeted out the link to her site which sported a new makeover: a countdown for both her single, “Positions,” and album of the same name. The single is set to release on October 23 and the album on October 30.

Grande’s most recent album, thank u, next, released in February of 2019 and received a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album, as well as the nomination for the Billboard Music Award for Top Billboard 200 Album. Earlier this year, Grande released “Rain On Me” with Lady Gaga and “Stuck With U” with Justin Bieber.
Grande teased the title of her album on social media when she posted a slow-motion video of her typing out “Positions” on a keyboard.
