Ariana Grande’s ‘Positions’ Album Details: Release Date, Song Titles, & More

Her previous record, Thank U, Next, which released in February 2019, was a massive success, pumping out hits like "7 Rings" and "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored," so fans can't wait to hear what's next from the star.

The track went on to win Song of the Year, Best Collaboration, and Best Cinematography at the 2020 VMAs, while Grande and Bieber's song won Best Music Video From Home.
