After teasing releasing yet another new song, it seems Ariana Grande is just randomly dropping music nowadays. Actually, she confessed that this new ‘impulsive’ schedule helped her fall back in love with music.
Ariana Grande, 25, went on what she called a “grateful rant” on March 27. After a fan praised Ariana for saying “f*ck the rules” and “release music whenever the f*ck she wants,” the Sweetener singer gave some love back on a now-deleted Instagram Story. “Thanks for being supportive of my random, impulsive and excessive music releases,” she said (h/t Daily Mail). “The first few years of this were really hard on my mental health and energy. I was so tired from promo trips and was always losing my voice and never knew what city I was in when I woke up. It was so much.”
“It was worth it and I am grateful for everything I learned and accomplished when I did things that way, of course,” she added. “But I just feel so much more connected now and yeah… If I feel like I’m able to make special things with my incredible friends quickly, why not share them right away? It’s a very dope feeling and has breathed so much air back into my lil lungs. Thank u thank u. She’s ranting tonight ladies. Grateful tho. Grateful ranting. That’s a thing now I guess.”
Earlier in the night, Ariana explained how releasing music this randomly “feels [so much] healthier & [so much] authentic and rewarding. Regardless of the outcome, I prefer this because it’s real and feels happy. No games. I love music. I love the people I make it with. These past few months made me fall in love with this job all over again. Thank you so much for being down.”
Before this “grateful ranting,” Ariana teased releasing a brand new collaboration with her longtime collaborator and friend Victoria Monet. “man, let’s drop it tomorrow night [Victoria] seven rings is ab to be number one for eight weeks and the album might go back to no. 1 too…. we need to celebrate tbh ! life too short and too sweet rn. Hmmmmmmm,” she tweeted on March 27.

“Yoo lets drop it Monday so we can celebrate an 8th week at number 1!!Cause this shit is insaaaane,” Victoria said, which Ariana responded with, “word it’s also like …. not mastered or ready or delivered lmaooo. see, this is why i can’t go on twitter anymore. i get too excited and say shit i shouldn’t. however, monday is soon enough ! we love uuu” Victoria, in turn, said, Oh shit so it’s finna be #MonopolyMonday bet let’s GOOOOO BESFRENNN.” “I’m so tired horroay Monday I love Monday,” Ariana said.
So, is this song entitled “Monopoly,” as hinted by Victoria’s hashtag? Or will they finally release, “She’s Got Her Own,” the song Ariana teased on Snapchat all the way back in 2016, according to Billboard (who described it as a “low key jam.”) Ariana and Victoria performed “She’s Got Her Own” during Grande’s March 25 concert at the Captial One Arena in Washington D.C., leading some to wonder if this is the song they’re going to drop. Fans will have to wait any see.
