Ariana Grande is on top of the world right now. The 25-year-old has been on an incredible hot streak since dropping “No Tears Left To Cry” last April. She’s moved from bop to bop, with each seeming bigger than the last. The Grammy nominee achieved a personal best when she topped the Billboard Hot 100 with “thank u, next.” Now she’s on track to replicate the feat with her current single – “7 Rings.” The “My Favorite Things”-sampling trap anthem has dominated streaming services and remains at the top of US iTunes after the weekend. At the rate things are going, this will be her second track to debut at the top spot on the Hot 100. Next up is her second album in less than 6 months.

Tentatively titled Thank U, Next, it follows last year’s Sweetener. And it looks like it is on the way sooner rather than later. Today (January 21) Ari hopped on Twitter to share a few more details about the forthcoming release. In particular, she confirmed that it would be available for pre-order as of this Friday (January 25). That’s when she’ll also reveal the official tracklist and album cover. It also looks like she is gunning for a February release date. Nothing is official just yet. However, the Coachella headliner alluded to February 8 when replying to one fan’s questions. She also confirmed that she already knows what the third single is. It looks like she’s gearing up to totally dominate the rest of the year.

Hopefully things will be more concrete once Friday rolls around. In the meantime, check out some of her tweets below!
