If anything positive has come out of quarantine, it's music. Ariana Grande just released a new album, Positions, and it's streaming now. Grande dropped the lead single, also called "Positions," last week along with a new music video in which she plays the President of the United States.

Grande surprised the world with the announcement of her sixth studio album, the first since 2019's Thank U, Next. Grande has been teasing fans about new music for weeks. Last month, she tweeted a snippet of a song and a song lyric.

It seems Grande changed her mind from earlier this year, when she told Apple Music's Zane Lowe that fans shouldn't expect new music from her in the near future. 

"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," Grande said at the time. 

So, it came as a surprise when she tweeted last week, "i can’t wait to give u my album this month." She followed that up with a tease of her new album.

Positions (the album) was released at midnight on Oct. 30, just in time for Halloween. The eponymous lead single dropped at midnight on Oct. 23. 

The new album will have a big act to follow. Thank U, Next debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 list, with lead single "7 Rings" topping the Hot 100 chart. Thank U, Next also broke the record for the biggest streaming week ever for a pop album. It also earned four Grammy nominations, including album of the year.

This year, Grande has collaborated on Lady Gaga's song "Rain on Me" and on Justin Bieber's track "Stuck With You."
