Perhaps since her Chris Brown duet, “Don’t Be Gone Too Long,” has been postponed, Ariana Grande has gotten a little antsy and decided to give fans a preview of another new song. In a recent LiveStream video, the R&B singer played about 30 seconds of a new song purportedly titled “They Don’t Understand.”

In the clip below, you can hear her voice cascading over a beat that alternates between finger snaps and rolling percussion. It sounds like it’ll be a pretty dramatic, massive song, but she stops it just as everything builds. “I’m not allowed to play that much of it,” Grande said. “I can’t play anymore because I’ll get in trouble.”

Watch the clip below.
