Revealed: Who Is Ariana Grande Working On New Music With?
Despite the series of unfortunate events that have plagued Ariana Grande for the past few years, she is still managing to come out on top. Hot of the heels of her first number one hit single “thank u, next”, Grande released her fifth studio album with the same name earlier this year. Currently on tour for her fourth studio album, Sweetener, Grande is writing new music and racking up a few other notable titles.
Grande recently became the most followed woman on Instagram, and back in April, she was the youngest artist to ever headline Coachella. But despite how busy the singer is, she is somehow managing to find time to write new songs. She recently tweeted that she’s currently collaborating with a 14 time Grammy award nominee and fans are shaking in their boots.
“My dream has always been to be — obviously not a rapper, but, like, to put out music in the way that a rapper does. I feel like there are certain standards that pop women are held to that men aren’t. We have to do the teaser before the single, then do the single, and wait to do the preorder, and radio has to impact before the video, and we have to do the discount on this day, and all this shit.”
” It’s just like, ‘Bruh, I just want to fucking talk to my fans and sing and write music and drop it the way these boys do. Why do they get to make records like that and I don’t?’ So I do and I did and I am, and I will continue to.” the 25-year-old confessed to Rolling Stone a few months back.
Tour de Grande
True to her word, the “7 Rings” singer created the entire thank u, next album in just two weeks, right on the heels of her previous album, Sweetener. Releasing back to back albums only six months apart and announcing a tour with minimal marketing is practically unheard of for pop artists, and Grande has no plans of slowing down anytime soon.
A few days ago, she took to her Twitter to answer some burning questions from some of her biggest fans. When a fan asked her what she was working on, she confessed that she has been writing some new music, but expressed that she didn’t really have a timeline for its release.
“Just writing when I can bc it feels good! I’m not giving myself any deadlines … just expressing n challenging myself. but … I love what I been making. so much. but personal music aside, we been working on a soundtrack together @Savan_Kotecha no more questions” the “NASA” singer said cryptically.
Savan Kotecha is a talented songwriter who has written many musical hits for some of music’s top artist. He is the mastermind behind a few of Grande’s best hits like “Break Free”, “God Is A Woman” and “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored”, but also has written other notable bangers like Britney Spears’ “If You Seek Amy” and One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.”
We’re so happy to hear that Grande and Kotecha are teaming up again. With their collective writing chops and Grande’s ridiculously impressive vocals, we just know they’re going to create something great.
