Ariana Grande just gave fans an exclusive preview of her new song “r.e.m.” from her forthcoming album Sweetener, out Aug. 17.

After a photo shoot for Elle magazine’s August issue, the singer sat down to play a few rounds of Song Association, a singing game where she is given a word and has 10 seconds to sing a line containing that word.

When the word “dream” popped up on the screen, Grande delved into the lyrics of her new track, singing: “Why you such a dream to me/Before you speak don’t walk/'Cause I don't want to wake up."

"That's my song, it's coming," Grande added. Recently, she took to Twitter to announce that her long-awaited single, "God Is a Woman," will be released tomorrow (July 13).

Grande also sang clips from Justin Bieber’s “Baby,” Whitney Houston’s “Queen of the Night” and “L-O-V-E” by Nat King Cole. The lineup even included renditions of the 25-year-old’s previous hits, including “Dangerous Woman” and “Moonlight,” from her third studio album, Dangerous Woman.
