Ariana Grande Shares New Single "Monopoly"
You can stream it now
It's set to arrive tonight at 5 p.m. EDT (provided this isn't a horribly cruel April Fool's Day prank).
The track is a collaboration with her songwriting partner and bestie Victoria Monét and was presumably written and recorded while on tour. They're calling it a "thank u to them fans."
UPDATE (4/1, 2:30 p.m. EDT): You can now hear "Monopoly" below, where it's arrived alongside a new video.
The pair have been teasing the song on Twitter and Instagram over the past few days, and it seems to allude to Grande's chart-topping "7 rings" — a song that despite sitting at No. 1 for seven weeks, owes 90% of its songwriting royalties to Rodgers and Hammerstein for sampling "My Favorite Things."
even tho we gave up that 90% for the win 💸🖤 https://t.co/ncz5Ddg7Bf— Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) March 28, 2019
