Is Ariana Grande's new song named 'Positions'? Singer teases release countdown, fans ask 'why isn't it out yet?'
The new project will be a follow-up to her 2019 album ‘Thank U, Next’ and before that she had released her album ‘Sweetener’ in 2018
Ariana Grande has been teasing her fans with her sixth studio album for almost a month now and in her latest Instagram post, the American pop star has once again hinted about her upcoming project. The 27-year-old crooner posted a short video where we can the singer’s hand typing on a neon green keyboard in slow motion. To further tease her fans, she did not give any caption to her Instagram post but if you look closely in the video, you can notice Ariana typing the word ‘Positions’ into the keyboard which might be the name of her new album or maybe a single from her new project.
On September 15, 2020, Ariana had first teased her fans about her new album when she posted a 5-second video snippet where we can see a song being played on a screen that everyone assumed will be one of the new tracks from the album. She had simply captioned the tweet as, “brb”
Apart from her Instagram post, ‘The Way’ hitmaker also shared an Instagram story of a countdown which says “5 Days” and “12 Days” to which we are assuming that she might release the first single from her new record in the next five days and most probably her full album after 12 days. There are no other official details of the release date. What we are sure about is that her upcoming project will surely drop in the month of October, as one of her earlier tweets also confirmed where she said, “I can’t wait to give u my album this month.”

The new untitled project will be a follow-up to her 2019 album ‘Thank U, Next’ and before that she had released her album ‘Sweetener’ in 2018.
Her 2019 album ‘Thank U, Next’ was based on her relationship and subsequent break-up with then boyfriend Pete Davidson. Ariana had also tweeted about a week ago about her new album where we could spot a few instruments in the background of the photo she posted. The American crooner captioned the tweet as, “Turning in these mixes and reminding u again to register to vote if u haven’t already / to vote early”

Even though Ariana has been teasing her fans with short snippets on social media every now and then, she has not revealed any details on the official tracklist. So, yes, fans might have to wait a little more for the announcement. MEAWW will keep you posted.
According to NME, Ariana revealed in an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe that she had a collaboration in the works with Doja Cat. She added that she was “obsessed” with Doja and that they had worked together on a song. Ariana also kept her fans entertained by dropping two chartbusters singles this year. First, in May 2020, she released a pandemic-inspired duet with Justin Bieber titled ‘Stuck with U’ and then a few weeks later she debuted her collaboration with Lady Gaga on the song ‘Rain On Me.’ You can check-out both the songs right here:

The multiple award-winning singer enjoys a massive fan base across the globe and therefore, the moment she posted her latest snippet on Instagram, she started trending on Twitter. One user said, “If positions really is the name of the album, ariana really went from empowering and beautiful album names to something shallow.” Sharing a screenshot of Ariana’s Instagram story, another fan said, “@ArianaGrande giving me the best birthday present ever and she doesn’t even know I exist- (the album release).” One user expressed, “Why isnt positions out yet? @ArianaGrande get to work maam.” One individual stated, “Ariana making an album called POSITIONS is exactly what my spirit needs.”
