On Thursday (Nov. 8), Ariana Grande shut down rumors that her highly anticipated Thank U, Next album would come out on Friday.

Grande -- who was just named Billboard's 2018 Woman of the Year -- tweeted to a fan who asked, “When are we getting the album?”

“I’ve seen rumors that it’s coming Friday but it’s not yet,” Grande confirmed. “We still finishing things up.” 

Grande sent fans into a frenzy after her surprise release of the album’s title track on Saturday night and possible track list hints in the “Breathin'” music video she released Wednesday.
