Ariana Grande is known for interacting directly with her millions of fans, and the “Thank U, Next” star went straight to her listeners to share a snippet of her rhythmic new track “Imagine,” due to release on Thursday night.
Grande shared the teaser on her Instagram story Wednesday (Dec. 12) with a countdown clock to the time of the “Imagine” release (which adds up to Thursday at midnight ET/9 p.m. PT), adding her favorite black heart emoji.
The new single will be the second release, following “Thank U, Next,” from Grande’s upcoming album of the same name.
“For those asking about Imagine,” the 25-year-old wrote in an unpublished tweet posted to her Instagram story. “I would say if ‘thank u, next’ = acceptance, imagine = denial, hope that makes sense.”
Listen to the “Imagine” snippet below.
