Ariana Grande has revealed details of the cover art for Thank U, Next just hours after confirming that it will drop next month.
The singer only released her fourth studio album Sweetener back in August, but has since outlined her plans to quickly release another record – especially after the success of the upcoming album’s title track, which came out back in November.
The singer shared a picture of her new album’s cover art on social media before describing it as her “fav album cover.” She added: “brian painted me. fredo shot me. made with tru, deep friendship and love. just like this music.”
Speaking about the upside down pose in the cover image, Grande added: “she still upside-down, but this time she kinda…f_k w it lol.” You can see the artwork above.
As uDiscover Music previously reported, Grande previously announced details about the Thank U, Next album, revealing that the 12-track record will also feature the songs ‘Imagine’ and ‘7 Rings’. The artist shared the tracklist in an Instagram post, which also confirmed that the record’s final track is called ‘Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored’.
The fast-rising star only released her fourth studio album Sweetener back in August, but has since outlined her plans to quickly release another record – especially after the success of the upcoming album’s title track, which came out back in November.

Of those streams, 7.9 million came from Grande’s Mean Girls inspired music video, which features cameos from Jonathan Bennett, Troye Sivan and Colleen Ballinger.
The Thank U, Next news also confirms that Grande’s new album will be released a full two months before she headlines this year’s Coachella festival.
