Ariana Grande hasn’t even embarked on her Sweetener world tour yet, but she’s already eyeing a release date for her next album.
Sweetener dropped last August, and according to Grande’s Instagram, Thank U, Next the album will be arriving on Feb.8. She shared the exciting news on Jan. 22, along with the album’s track list.
On Jan. 21, Grande began replying to questions from her fans, revealing that Friday, Jan. 25, would be the album’s official pre-order date, as well as the release date for the cover.
The singer already released the album’s first two singles, “Thank U, Next” and “7 Rings” – both of which have already seen much success. Grande strongly hinted that the album would be released in February, close to Valentine’s Day, when a fan tweeted, “Dropping the album before Valentine’s Day, you gone get everybody PREGNANT.” Grande replied, “Oh, quite the opposite.”
