The pop star collaborated on the new track with Victoria Monét
Ariana Grande has released a brand new song called ‘Monopoly’.
The new track is the first new material the pop star has put out since the release of her latest album ‘thank u, next’ last month.
Posting the track on Twitter, Grande called it “a celebration and a ‘thank u’ for everything!” You can listen to the song below now.

Grande teased the release on Twitter in a back-and-forth with her best friend and long-term collaborator Victoria Monét last week (March 28). The pair began by sending what appear to be lyrics to each other on the social networking site, with Grande writing: “Work so fuckin muuuuuch, need a twinny twin twin.”
She later added: “Man, let’s drop it tomorrow night @VictoriaMonet seven rings is ab to be number one for eight weeks and the album might go back to no. 1 too…. We need to celebrate tbh ! Life too short and too sweet rn. Hmmmmmmm.”
Monét replied with a different idea, telling Grande they should wait until Monday so they could “celebrate an 8th week at number 1!!Cause this shit is insaaaane”.
The pop star then revealed the track wasn’t even mastered “or ready or delivered” and agreed to hold off until this week. “This is why I can’t go on twitter anymore,” she added. “I get too excited and say shit I shouldn’t. however, Monday is soon enough ! We love uuu.”
The new release comes after Grande and Monét performed another unreleased track on stage in Washington D.C. as part of the ‘Sweetener’ world tour. Grande gave a rare performance of ‘Got Her Own’, which was teased on Snapchat in 2016 but has yet to see the light of day.
