According to TMZ, Ariana Grande has finished the work on her fourth studio album. The 24-year-old played the album’s tracks for her manager Scooter Braun and Republic Records executive on Friday and sources are saying that there is some good stuff on the album.
“Ariana just played her new album for the Republic Records team and her management and everyone loved it,” said one of the sources to Daily Mail.
This new album is reportedly finished, but the release date remains unknown. One half of the album is produced by Pharrell Williams, while the rest was done by Grande’s longtime collaborator Max Martin. Martin is credited as the man behind some of her greatest hits including “Problem” and “Into You”. Finally, it looks like Grande really put an effort into this releasing, participating in the writing sessions, which isn’t something she used to do before.
Ariana Grande’s major breakthrough came in 2009 when she landed a role of Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon’s TV show Victorious. After contributing vocals to 2011’s soundtrack Music from Victorious, Grande released her debut album Yours Truly in 2013. She received positive reviews from the critics, with some even comparing her to Mariah Carey. She went on to release two more albums, 2014’s My Everything and 2016’s Dangerous Woman, both of which were warmly received by both the critics and the audience.
