Ariana Grande has confirmed details of her next album Thank U Next, 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. According to the Official Singles Chart, as well as extending her time at Number 1 to five weeks, Grande also set a new streaming record after earning 14.9 million streams of ‘Thank U, Next’ in one week alone.
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.
Grande has now 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’.
Thank U Next will be out on February 8 – check out the tracklist below.
This announcement also confirms that Grande’s new album will be released a full two months before she headlines this year’s Coachella festival. As uDiscover Music previously reported, Grande would be playing the festival on a bill also including Childish Gambino and Tame Impala. All three acts will take top billing at the iconic California festival, which runs over the weekends of 12-14 and 19-21 April.
Gambino, the alter-ego of Donald Glover, will take top billing on the Friday night of the festival, while Tame Impala and Ariana follow respectively on the Saturday & Sunday. As well as supporting slots for the likes of Janelle Monae, The 1975, Solange and Weezer, BLACKPINK will make history by becoming the first female K-Pop group to perform at Coachella.
