Get in position, Arianators, because Ariana Grande is just days away from the release of her upcoming sixth album, Positions!

After weeks of teasing, fans will soon have their hands on the pop star’s first album in more than a year and a half — and her first big release since K Bye for Now (SWT Live) after wrapping her massive Sweetener World Tour in Dec. 2019.

«This project is my favorite for many reasons and i really can’t wait for it to be yours. thank u for your love and excitement, it means the world to me,» she tweeted on Saturday (Oct. 24) while sharing the album’s 13-song track listing in the lead-up to its release.

The album’s lead single

Ahead of the long-awaited full-length’s release, Grande surprised the world with lead single (and title track) «Positions,» a smitten love song about, ahem, her flexibility in making a new relationship work. Hours later, she also dropped the track’s White House-set music video, which reimagines what life would be like with Ariana as commander in chief and features cameos by the likes of Tayla Parx, Victoria Monet, Nija Charles and the pop star’s beloved mother, Joan Grande.

The release date

Ariana isn’t wasting any time! Just one week after unleashing the innuendo-laden title track and its presidential music video on the world, the superstar is set to drop Positions on Friday, (Oct. 30). The album will be the pop star’s first full-length studio set since 2019’s Thank U, Next. Since then, she’s released a live album of her 2019 Sweetener World Tour, K Bye For Now (SWT Live), as well as high-profile collaborations with Justin Bieber («Stuck With U»), Lady Gaga («Rain On Me») and more.

The collaborators

Ari is no stranger to teaming up with her other artists, though she hasn’t included any guest features on an album since 2018’s Sweetener, where the likes of Nicki Minaj, Missy Elliott and Pharrell Williams all made appearances.

Unveiling the Positions track list on Oct. 24, the big-voiced pop star revealed she’ll be teaming up with both Doja Cat («Motive») and Ty Dolla $ign («Safety Net») among the LP’s 13 tracks, as well as collaborating once again with The Weeknd («Off the Table») for their second duet following Dangerous Woman-era smash single «Love Me Harder.»

The three (slightly) different album covers

Arianators dying to get their hands on a physical copy of the new album will three separate covers to choose from, with each featuring glam ’60s-inspired portraits of the pop star. «I’ve been so excited to show u these !!! three (slightly) different versions of the physical albums are now available to preorder on my website,» Ari wrote on Oct. 26 to share a look at the cover art for the CD versions of Positions.

In each close-up, she’s photographed from the left, alternately glancing to the right, gazing over her shoulder and framing her face with her hands. No word yet on which visual will make the cut as the album’s digital — or official — cover art.

Everything We Know About Katy Perry’s Fifth Album

Katy Perry

Katy Perry might deliver her first baby with fiancé Orlando Bloom before or after her fifth studio album, but either way, the pop star has been preparing her KatyCats for both this summer.

The «KP5» singles keep sprouting on streaming services and her baby bump keeps growing since she debuted it in the «Never Worn White» music videofrom early March. So let’s retrace her steps before the pop star pops out both a baby and an album.

See below for everything we know about Perry’s fifth studio album so far.

The release date

KP5 comes out on August 14 via Capitol Records.

The singles

Although not the lead single, «Never Worn White» came out first out of this bunch of KP5 singles, a wedding-themed ballad about securing a lifelong love with Bloom.

Perry then dropped «Daisies» in mid-May, but the ray of sunshine beaming from it originated from her darkest times. «I wrote this song just like it’s another anthem for myself. I came out of a pretty dark time on [2017’s] Witness and I’ve been writing a record for two years,» she told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe on the release date. «I wrote some of it while I was clinically depressed and trying to find the light at the end of the tunnel. And when I’m writing songs like ‘Firework’ or ‘Roar,’ it’s not because I’m feeling hunky-dory. It’s literally because I am having really dark thoughts and trying to come out of it.»

During a remote interview with Connecticut radio station KC1010 in late June, Perry teased another single titled «Teary Eyes» and how it ties back to her goal of releasing a project during the coronavirus pandemic. «There was conversation about not putting it out this year. I was like, ‘We need some songs to dance through our tears through,» she said. «I mean, there is one song on the record called ‘Teary Eyes,’ and it’s really about just dancing through your tears. And I’m like, ‘Wow that really resonates. That slaps, that hits hard for me right now.’ So I’m excited for it. I’m excited for all of it.»

During her Amazon Live mini-concert and Q&A session, the singer-songwriter said every song on her upcoming project exemplified «resilience, redemption, joy and empowerment» and served as a supplemental kind of therapy with her actual therapy to deal with clinical depression.

The videos (and pregnancy announcement!) 

Her «Never Worn White» music video from early March gave the KatyCats the first glimpse of her baby bump, clarifying what she meant by a «jam packed summer.» But Perry told SiriusXM Hits 1 the real kicker about her pregnancy announcement coming in this specific clip. «Honestly, I was getting way too fat to hide it, so I was like, ‘Well, I think this song would be a great reveal! Let’s start there,» she joked with host Mike Piff. «And that’s how I communicate things — I communicate through music.»

When the 35-year-old pop star gave the powerful «Daisies» tune the music video treatment in mid-May, she exposed her gentle side while frolicking in a field of daisies and even caressing her then-smaller baby bump in a nude shot by a waterfall.

She later transformed into a faceless animated woman for the «Daisies» lyric videoshe released in late May that Vallee Duhamel studios created. Perry turned the sticks and stones thrown at her from her haters into a pink house on a grassy knoll before she defied gravity.

The merch

Perry joined the wave of artists selling name-brand face masks to combat the COVID-19 pandemic by customizing her personal protective equipment (PPE) with the «Daisies» signature print and song title. Proceeds from the face mask benefited DirectRelief.

Just in time for Mother’s Day this year, the «Daisies» singer opened up a digital flower shop called Katy’s Daisies that offers 12 free multicolored bouquet options.

The features

Perry’s kept her lips sealed about which artists might be featured on KP5, but she shut down the rumors that Taylor Swift‘s name would appear on the tracklist. «No, it’s not correct. But the fans are definitely excited for something like that to happen in the future and I’m always open,» she said in an interview with Hits Radio Breakfast.
