Everything We Know About Ariana's 4th LP
From collaborators to song titles, here's what we know about Ari's 4th opus.

Ariana Grande really had us fooled when she teases lyrics from a new song called “R.E.M.” a couple of weeks ago. We thought it was going to be her next single, but it looks like the pop star is going with “The Light Is Coming” — her fourth collaboration with Nicki Minaj after “Bang Bang,” “Side To Side” and “Get On Your Knees.” The 24-year-old fired up Twitter to share a video of her singing along to the rapper’s verse. “Why you had to make me go and call my side guy,” the “Chun Li” hitmaker raps. “Can’t let an F- boy, F- up my nice vibes.”

The clip also contains a brief snippet of the chorus. “The light is coming to give back everything the darkness stole,” Ariana sings over a militaristic beat. One more thing, there’s a male voice featured on the chorus and that might just be Drake. Rumors started swirling that he was part of the song when he interacted with the pair on Instagram. Needless to say, Nicki and Drake features would all but guarantee a number one hit. Listen to the preview and see the (thin) proof of Drizzy’s involvement below.
