Ariana Grande's 'Sweetener' album was only recently released, but the star has been working non-stop in the studio, and has even revealed she's got nine tracks for her fifth album, thank u, next.
Ariana Grande, the queen of album teasers, has posted a whole load of new snaps from the recording studio, and even teased a nine track album list which has sent Arianators wild, as she only released Sweetener & thank u, next in these last few months.
yes but i keep writing things i want to add https://t.co/unnpd2PqbW— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) December 1, 2018
She's pretty much finished recording her fifth album and when she dropped her Mean Girls inspired music video she hinted at upcoming track titles 'needy' on her logo t-shirt and '7 rings' on the number plate of her car.
She also sent fans into meltdown when hiding a load of cryptic words on the departure board of the train station in the breathin' music video such as 'NASA', 'needy', 'remember', 'imagine' and whole load of other possible anagrams and signs.
A BTS shot from the video has appeared on an Ariana fan account seemingly showing the completed track list, which confirms titles which have been floating around for a while now!
She's also confirmed to Billboard that- wanting to break out of 'pop conformity' of touring one album at a time, her upcoming world tour will combine both Sweetener and Thank U, Next- and any other tunes she releases on the way, revealing she'll have a studio on her tour bus and will be recording throughout.
Joking how she couldn't wait for her fans to turn into her 'lil private detectives' as her fans (and us) love figuring out her teasers, and boy, does Ari love a teaser!
She's been chatting to fans on Twitter about individual tracks, revealing 7 rings was about a bad day she was having when her friends took her to Tiffany's and they all got matching rings.
well ............. ‘twas a pretty rough day in nyc. my friends took me to tiffany’s. we had too much champagne. i bought us all rings. 💍 it was very insane and funny. & on the way back to the stu njomza was like ‘bitch, this gotta be a song lol’. so we wrote it that afternoon. https://t.co/CoczmPj1Fo— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) December 1, 2018
Naturally, fans couldn't contain their excitement at the prospect of getting new Ariana music this soon on, and TBH, same.

Fans weren't sure that they'd be getting the album anytime soon, but after everything we've heard from Ari, it's coming really soon, she's just too obsessed with harmonies to call it a finished piece yet!
Ariana took to her Twitter account to reveal that she does in fact have a name for the album but was tight-lipped when it came to revealing what it was... grr Ari, you tease!
You can't start teasing a new album without giving the fans some kind of indication of when they'll be able to get their hands on it! But nope, Ariana kept those details even more secret when quizzed on it saying 'hehehe idk'.
