Weeks after meeting with her label to present her new album, it looks like we might have a release date for Ariana Grande’s new single off the follow-up to 2016’s Dangerous Woman and it marks the first musical offering since the tragic bombing at the 24-year-old star’s Manchester concert.
On Friday (April 6), Hits Daily Double reported that a new Grande single is set to land on April 27 as part of her forthcoming LP, which features collaborations from Max Martin, Savan Kotecha, and Pharrell Williams. Now, a source close to Variety echoed the release in a new report on Monday morning. In early March, TMZ reported that the album was complete and is much more “personal” than her previous efforts as she was involved in penning every single track on the project. Songwriting is a new venture for the pop star but the final product seemed to be impressive, at least that’s based on the feedback she received during a wrap meeting with Republic Records execs and her manager, Scooter Braun.
If that wasn’t enough, it looks like Grande might have a duet with Dua Lipa on the horizon after a short snippet of a song called “Bad to You” leaked onto the blogosphere the same day that the Hits Daily Double report was published. Stay tuned!
