Ariana Grande will drop the first single from her upcoming album on April 27, Billboard has confirmed after the news was first reported by Variety. The album will feature collaborations with Max Martin, Savan Kotecha and Pharrell Williams, as well as deeply personal themes relating to the last two years of Grande’s life.
The set will be Grande’s first following the deadly terrorist attack that occurred outside an arena where the pop star was performing on May 22 of last year, which killed 23 (including the attacker) and wounded approximately 500 others.
Two weeks after the attack, Grande staged the One Love Manchester benefit concert with Justin Bieber, The Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay, Miley Cyrus and many more. More recently, Grande struck a pro-gun-control note when she performed her song “Be Alright” at the March For Our Lives in Washington, DC.
Billboard has reached out to Grande’s camp for further comment.
