Ariana Grande teased a new album coming “this month”, and suddenly 2020 doesn’t seem beyond saving.
Ariana announced Wednesday (October 14) that she will gift the world with the vaccine we so truly need – her sixth album, which will arrive later this month.
Yes, after Dua Lipa, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift all came to save music from the horrors of, well, straight male musicians, Ariana is next in line, with Kylie Minogue just a month after.
Taking to Twitter, Ariana wrote: “i can’t wait to give u my album this month,” proving that society has progressed past the need for capital letters.

The abrupt announcement of her sixth release – the follow-up to her 2019 album, thank u, next – caused countless queer men called Nick, Tom or James to ascend into the heavens.
Ariana Grande will drop new album in October 2020 and the internet can’t breathe.
Reacting to the news of Ariana Grande’s new album, one user accurately said: “Thus is the best thing I’ve read in the past 10 months.”
Another added: “She said ya’ll getting the WHOLE ALBUM?!?!?!
“Someone needs to check on me because I actually can’t breathe.”
Basically, unlike Ariana’s Twitter timeline, there was a lot of capital letters.

Clues to Ariana Grande’s new album have been emerging for a while.
Though, they were perhaps not as cryptic as the long, long road towards Lady Gaga’s sixth album, which saw everything from billboards to experimental tweets and divine prophecies be used to offer fans subatomic crumbs of information.
Ariana teased that she was working on new material while also doing the Lord’s work by encouraging Americans to vote last week.

“[T]urning in these mixes and reminding u again to register to vote if u haven’t already / to vote early,” she wrote.
While in September, she casually uploaded a snippet of vocals from a track called “brb”.
We also know that the “7 Rings” hitmaker has a collaboration with Doja Cat in the pipeline.
She told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe that she was “obsessed” with the “Moo” singer and that they had worked together on a song.
