Ariana Grande's new album, believed to share the title of her hit single "Thank U, Next," will likely be released in February, the singer revealed Monday (Jan. 21).

When a Twitter follower asked Grande to spill some details about the upcoming release, she obliged: "ok i love u hello what would u like to know."

Based on the quick Q&A session that followed, the album might be here as soon as Feb. 8 -- and it's fully Ariana Grande, with no features.

"Hopefully it releases feb so its the best birthday gift," one fan wrote. Grande's simple "hbd" (happy birthday) response indicated that the album will indeed be available during the month of February.

And when another fan wondered "is it feb the 8th !!!!!!!! that’s my 21st sis," the pop star offered a little comment that said a lot: "how convenient."

If those not-so-subtle hints about the album release date weren't enough, Grande also responded to this observation from another fan: "Dropping the album before Valentine’s Day, you gon get everybody PREGNANT." She quipped, "oh quite the opposite," and wrote "happy valentine's day" in reply to another tweet that guessed the songs from the new set were about to "make everyone single."

The album's full details, including the cover and track list, will be unveiled Friday (Jan. 25), when fans can place their preorders.
