Superstar Ariana Grande Back in the Studio Already

Pop superstar Ariana Grande has posted a cryptic snap from her “happy” place, the studio, just two months after releasing her latest hit album, Eternal Sunshine.

Grande, 30, captioned the black-and-white image of the mixing desk on her Instagram Story: "happy."

The “yes, and?” hitmaker’s return to the recording studio comes after she recently celebrated her grandmother's place in history after she made history becoming the oldest person ever to score a hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Grande listed her “Nonna” Majorie Grande as a singer and a writer on the track “Ordinary Things” on the LP. The song entered the chart at number 55.

The singer-songwriter-and-actress – who is also set to star as Glinda in the two-part ‘Wicked’ movie adaptation - shared a picture of Majorie posing with a plaque commemorating her achievement and captioned it on Instagram, “Celebrating the one and only, most beautiful Nonna who has now made history for being the senior most person to ever appear on the @billboard Hot100.

“We love and thank you.”

The feat has made Majorie the most senior person to ever feature on the chart since it was founded in 1958. She beat a record set by late songwriter Fred Stobaugh, who was 96 when his song “Oh Sweet Lorraine” charted on the Hot 100 at number 42 in 2013. Stobaugh died three years later. 

On “Ordinary Things,” Majorie is heard talking about her late husband Frank and gives relationship advice.

She is heard saying: “And when he’d come home and I’d see him, And when he’d come home and I'd see him, when he first gets off that train.

“It was like God almighty arrived. It was like seein’ daylight. I mean, I could’ve packed up and left a million times. You know? It’s not that we never fought. You can overcome that.

“You know? It’s very easy. And as I told her, never go to bed without kissin’ goodnight. That’s the worst thing to do, don’t ever, ever do that. And if you can’t, and if you don’t feel comfortable doing it. You’re in the wrong place, get out.”

Grande's seventh album Eternal Sunshine debuted with 194.92 million on-demand official streams of the set's songs along with 77,000 sales in the week ending March 14 according to Luminate, which powers the Billboard charts. It's the biggest opening for an album in 2024 and the only album in 2024 to top the list with more than 200,000 units.
