Ariana Grande released her last album, Positions, in 2020 and has had fans anxiously awaiting the release of her seventh studio album since then. While the actress and singer has been busy working on Wicked, set to release in two parts in 2024 and 2025, it looks like she's been multitasking and also working hard on her seventh studio album.

After Ariana posted a video of herself that she says was filmed on one of the last days in the studio for her upcoming album, fans got excited that it might be comingo ut sooner than they expected. Along with the teaser video, Ariana sent fans a special package promising to see them in 2024. The package includes a tube of lipstick from her makeup brand, a photo of her, and a note that say she'll see them next year.

"I'm so tired! I'm so happy and grateful, I also feel like I weigh 3,000 tons," Ariana Grande can be heard laughing in the video that shows her laying on a couch with a fuzzy blanket draped over herself. While she laughs and relaxes, the cameraman can be heard asking if she's tired and if it's almost the last day that they'll be in the studio recording for the new album.

Along with the gift package and teaser video, it was revealed that Ilya Salmanzadeh are among the collaborators that Ariana worked with on this upcoming album. Ilyah is a massive name in the music world and has worked on music for a ton of pop stars, including helping to create the Kendrick Lamar remix of Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" and he's worked with Ariana Grande in the past.

In 2018, Ilyah worked with Ariana Grande for several songs on her album Sweetener, including songs like "No Tears Left to Cry" and "God Is a Woman." The two also collaborated on her Dangerous Woman, My Everything, and Thank U, Next albums, so it's safe to say that the two of them know what it takes to write and produce some hit songs.

Other collaborators on the album appear to include Max Martin, the music genius behind pop hits like the Backstreet Boys' "I Want It That Way," Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl," and The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights."

Although Ariana hasn't formally announced a release date for the album, the fact that she's promising big news for her fans in 2024 means it might be coming sooner than anyone had expected.
