The pop superstar shared in a message to fans on Monday saying that she hopes they'll enjoy her upcoming album in full when it drops on March 8
Ariana Grande is changing her “Positions” on singles with this album release.
As the pop superstar, 30, is getting ready to drop her upcoming, new album Eternal Sunshine, she shared an update for fans on Monday to manage their expectations about this release cycle.
While the Grammy winner typically releases a series of songs before her albums come out, she revealed in a message posted to her Instagram Story that this time around she won’t be dropping any more advanced singles before the LP is out in full on March 8.
“my loves,” the hitmaker’s note began, “we are little over a month away from Eternal Sunshine and i don’t think it’s possible to articulate how grateful i am for your love, support and excitement!”
“i wanted to say… as hard as it is to resist the urge to share another song or single with you all asap, i would really love for you to experience the album in full this time,” Grande shared.
The “thank u next” artist clarified that she’ll “of course” drop individual tracks as singles after the record is out, but explained that she didn’t want to release any besides “Yes, And?,” which dropped in January. She wrote, “... waiting a little longer for you to be able to listen fully through first really is my ideal way for you all to experience this body of work.”
“thank you for your trust in my vision and plan!” the Sweetener artist continued. “you have waited so long for new music from me and i am so grateful for your patience! I look forward to savoring every single of this new era with you all and i sincerely cannot wait for it to be yours!”
She concluded, “It’s going to be (and already is) so special. I am so excited for all that is to come. More than ever.”
Grande also teased that, in lieu of advanced songs, she has “a little surprise or two” coming for fans ahead of Eternal Sunshine’s early March release.
The pop star previously kicked off the era of her seventh studio album in January by dropping its lead single “Yes, And?.” The track, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, finds the songstress shrugging off the haters and embracing self-confidence over a slick disco-and-house-inspired beat.

Shortly after “Yes, And?” came out, Grande confirmed that her forthcoming album and the follow-up to 2020’s positions, which she collaborated on with renowned pop producer Max Martin, was on the way. In mid-January, she confirmed the project’s March 8 release date and announced its title with a post on Instagram that included the album artwork featuring a blurred, close-up shot of her red-lipped face.
The pop star shared a throwback video seemingly featuring footage from sometime last year of her previewing then-unreleased tracks to members of her record label, Republic Records.
"I'm nervous! I wanted to share with you that this is kind of a concept album because it’s all different heightened pieces of the same story of the same experience," the star of the upcoming Wicked film said in the clip. "I'm, like, weirdly emotional."
She told her team that the album finds her "playing the part that people kind of expect me to be sometimes, and having fun with that.
"And the rest of it’s all kind of really vulnerable," the musician added.
