The name of Ariana Grande’s upcoming single and its official release date has been revealed.
The 30-year-old actress and pop diva announced on social media that her upcoming song, “Yes, And?” would be accessible on Friday, January 12. The Wicked actress said late last year that her seventh album would be released in 2024.
On December 27, she posted a carousel of images and videos to Instagram, offering fans a glimpse of her recent time spent working with producer Ilya Salmanzadeh in the studio.
According to its title, “Yes, And?” is a lighthearted continuation of Grande’s semi-autobiographical 2019 single and album, “Thank U, Next.”
The singer has recently been on a number of popular songs, including the Weeknd’s remixes of “Save Your Tears” and “Die for You.” However, since the release of her sixth full-length album, “Positions,” in October 2020, she has not put out a record under her own name.
In addition to working diligently on Universal’s November big-screen version of the popular Broadway musical “Wicked,” she recently secretly parted ways with her longtime manager Scooter Braun and is currently represented by Brandon Creed, who also represents Troye Sivan, Charli XCX, Mark Ronson, and other artists.
Ariana Grande’s Musical Makeover
Ariana eventually stated on December 27 that the album would be out this year—possibly even sooner than planned. She was seen crying in the studio and dancing in some of the pictures.
Since 2020’s Positions, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and gave rise to a No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 list with its title track, the Grammy winner hasn’t had a proper release.
After a protracted hiatus, Grande has decided to publicly concentrate on her R.E.M. Beauty makeup line and her part in the upcoming live-action Wicked Broadway musical adaption, where she will portray Glinda opposite Cynthia Erivo’s Elphaba.
Ariana Grande-Butera, born June 26, 1993, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. An influential figure in contemporary popular music and often regarded as a pop icon, she is noted for her four-octave vocal range and whistle register, which have garnered critical acclaim.
Grande has received numerous accolades throughout her career, including two Grammy Awards, one Brit Award, one Bambi Award, two Billboard Music Awards, three American Music Awards, and nine MTV Video Music Awards.
Grande was born in Boca Raton, Florida. She is the daughter of Boca Raton-based graphic design company owner Edward Butera and Brooklyn-born Joan Grande, the CEO of Hose-McCann Communications, a communications and safety equipment manufacturer held by the Grande family since 1964.
Grande, who is of Italian heritage, identifies as an Italian American with origins in Abruzzo and Sicily. Frankie Grande, an entertainer and producer, is her elder half-brother.
Before she was even born, her family relocated to Florida from New York, and when she was eight or nine years old, her parents divorced. Grande is very close to Marjorie Grande, her maternal grandmother.
