Ariana Grande fans hoping for a new album got their wish.

The pop star announced on Twitter last week that she's dropping her sixth studio release. "I can't wait to give u my album this month," she tweeted.

She didn't share any other details, but has since given some hints.

Days after the announcement, Grande shared a cryptic video of herself typing the word "positions" on a computer keyboard to her more than 200 million followers on Instagram.

Adding to the mystery, Grande's website shows two countdown clocks -- one ending October 23 and the other October 30. The word "positions" is written in all caps above the clocks.
Fans on social media wasted no time and speculated that Grande's album could be called "Positions," and that she'll drop the first single on the 23rd and full album a week later.

But they could be wrong. We'll all just have to wait and see.

On the 14th, she also tweeted this, signaling that the album would be a non-political, welcome "October surprise":

@ArianaGrande
i can’t wait to give u my album this month.

 

Although she had a new album just around the corner, Grande opted out of attending the Billboard Music Awards in person this month. She did, however, perform IRL at the VMAs with Lady Gaga in August.

"happy VMA day ::) so excited for u see our first rain on me performance tonight!, she wrote on her Instagram then. "@ladygaga is fucking incredible and i’m so honored to share this moment with her and u all 🤍 also just want to say thank you to @MTV being so diligent in making this such a safe & healthy experience for all of the performers and crew involved. it’s so greatly appreciated and i can’t imagine how difficult it was to figure out! see u all so soon! 🌧"
