The singer is humbled and grateful for his words.
Ariana's last studio album Sweetener dropped at end of August and the singer is already nearing the end of the creative process for her next full-length effort. She informed her fans via Twitter of her progress via Twitter: "hi from the booth. finishin up."
Billboard is describing the LP's sonic palette as “deep, bass-driven bangers with trap beats alternating with airy, sad ballads” and “more adventurous than anything she has ever released.” They also confirm that at least one of its songs was written about Mac Miller.
