Fresh off the release of her new single “thank u, next,” Ariana Grande kept the Sweetener era alive Wednesday (Nov. 6) by dropping a music video for “Breathin.”
Ari originally released a “Breathin” teaser video featuring her pet pig Piggy Smallz but assured fans that a real video was also in the works. In the new, visually stunning music clip, Grande — who was just named Billboard‘s 2018 Woman of the Year — walks through a busy train station as people rush past her.
The camera pans up to show the departures board, which shows mostly jumbled-up words except for “Imagine,” “Remember” and “Needy.” Fans immediately jumped on this and theorized that this could be a hint at her track list for her upcoming album. On Saturday, when she released “thank u, next,” Grande confirmed that another album is already on the way, telling a fan on Twitter that the new title is for both a song and an album.
