Ariana Grande Posts Mysterious New Song Snippet to Instagram
The “Focus” singer posted a short song snippet on Instagram today (February 1) with zero context — just a nondescript caption in the form of a small heart. The actual track sounds like a slow-burning R&B number, as Grande sings in her breathy signature vocals: “Is it love, is it lust, is it fear / But it’s hard to breathe when you’re touching me there / Hard to breathe when you’re kissing me there.”
The unnamed snippet sounds decidedly different from “Be Alright,” a track that Grande’s been teasing via Snapchat since last summer. The song recently resurfaced online after the “One Last Time” singer posted what appear to be lyrics to “Be Alright” on Twitter, right before promising fans it would be out soon.

As for the album, Grande decided on the name Moonlight long-ago, but recently reconsidered, after an unnamed song set to appear on the album gave her second thoughts.
“A really long time ago, I was convinced that it was gonna be called Moonlight because it’s one of my favorite songs that we did for the album,” she said during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel. “Now there’s this other song that’s sort of thrown me for a whirlwind and I love it so much and it’s just sort of changed everything.”
