Hollywood A-lister Halle Berry shared in the excitement as she wrote, ‘Oooo,’ with a bunch of red hearts.
Ariana’s last album, thank u next, came out in February 2019 and went double platinum after it was named the second-best performing album in the county.
The album was nominated for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album at the January 2020 Grammy Awards, but she sadly went home empty-handed despite five nominations.
The record was written in the midst of personal struggles with ex-fiancee Pete Davidson, and after grappling with the death of ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, who died a month after her 2018 album Sweetener was released.
After the two very public relationships, Grande has since moved onto a more private one with luxury real estate agent, Dalton Gomez, 27.
The two were first linked in the spring, after she was spotted kissing him around Valentine’s Day.
Ariana who has spent quarantine with her new beau, made their relationship Instagram official in June.
In recent news, Rain On Me has been nominated for Best Video, Best Song, and Best Collaboration at the upcoming MTV Europe Music Awards.
The likely virtual and pre-recorded ceremony will air on November 8th.
