Ariana Grande casually reveals she's dropping a new album this month

Ariana Grande just managed to trend on Twitter with a casual, 10 word tweet.

The singer on Wednesday surprised fans by revealing she's getting ready to drop her new album, writing on Twitter, "i can't wait to give u my album this month." Grande, who earlier this year collaborated with Lady Gaga for "Rain on Me" and with Justin Bieber for "Stuck with U," revealed no other details about the studio album, which will be her sixth and first since thank u, next in 2019.

But Insider notes Grande has provided teases throughout the year, such as by sharing snippets of upcoming songs, and she recently said she was "turning in these mixes." Given the album's October release, perhaps Grande will throw everyone a curveball by having the entire thing be Halloween themed, complete with a star-studded, spooky "Monster Mash" cover. If so, the 2022 Grammys' Album of the Year race is sure to be a done deal.
