Ariana Grande has released her sixth studio album Positions today, after announcing it earlier this month.
The album was preceded by the titular lead single, which Grande released last week alongside a music video in which she portrayed the President of the United States.
Positions also sees Grande reunite with previous collaborator The Weeknd, as well as Doja Cat and Ty Dolla $ign.
“I don’t have a top three or anything! Everything goes hand in hand,” Grande said of the album when she revealed the tracklist.
“This project is my favorite for many reasons and i really can’t wait for it to be yours. Thank u for your love and excitement, it means the world to me.”
Ty Dolla $ign also spoke of his collaboration with Grande in a recent interview with a Los Angeles radio station, saying “it was an honor to work” with the popstar.
“We’ve got an amazing tune coming for sure,” Ty said. “She wanted me to come through to the studio… We just wrote the song together right there on the spot.”
Positions marks Ariana Grande’s third album in as many years, following 2018’s Sweetener and 2019’s Thank U, Next.
Back in May, Grande teamed up with Lady Gaga on the latter’s Chromatica single “Rain On Me”. The pair performed the track live during the MTV VMAs 2020 ceremony in August, where they picked up the awards for Best Collaboration and Song Of The Year.
The record also picked up considerable critical acclaim.In a four-star review of Thank U, Next, NME wrote: “It could easily be a self-pitying album, one ready to dwell in the wreckage of incidents, but instead keeps picking up and moving on; providing a guide to how to keep on keeping on even when it feels like whatever you do is going to end in devastation.”
Positions is out now and can be bought here.
