Minutes after the post went live, fans began to theorize that 'Positions' may either be the name of Grande's new album or the name of the album's lead single.

Unfortunately, the 27-year-old singer did not provide any further details to her 204 million followers.

Grande first revealed that she would be releasing an album in the coming weeks in a message published to Twitter on October 14.

'I can't wait to give u my album this month,' she wrote, which sent her devout fan following into a total frenzy online.

The post garnered over 1M likes within the hour as fans and celebrities alike were quick to comment on the post. 

The unexpected tweet directly contradicted statements made by Grande in an interview with Apple Music's Zane Lowe earlier this year.

Ariana explained at the time that, despite having a home music studio at her disposal, she did not 'really feel comfortable' releasing new music due to the pandemic.

'I don't really feel comfortable putting anything out right now, because it's just like other than this, it's a really tricky time for all of that,' said Grande. 

Ariana's last album, thank u next, came out in February 2019 and went double platinum after it was named the second best performing album in the country.

The album was nominated for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album at the January 2020 Grammy Awards, but she sadly went home empty-handed despite five nominations.

The record was written in the midst of personal struggles with ex-fiancee Pete Davidson, and after grappling with the death of ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, who died a month after her 2018 album Sweetener was released.

After the two very public relationships, Grande has since moved onto a more private one with luxury real estate agent, Dalton Gomez, 27.  

The two were first linked in the spring, after she was spotted kissing him around Valentine's Day.
