Ariana Grande may or may not be changing the name of her third album from Moonlight, but don't expect the "Focus" singer to dish on what the new record will be called. On Thursday night (Jan. 14), Grande appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote her new MAC Viva Glam lipstick, and naturally, talk turned to her devoted fans and her My Everything follow-up.

Earlier this week, attentive Arianators noticed that Grande had removed "Moonlight" from her Twitter bio, replacing it with her old favorite phrase "Honeymoon Ave." When fans asked whether or not she had changed the planned title to her third studio album, she remained mum, a trend she continued when talking to Jimmy Kimmel.

"A really long time ago, I was convinced it was going to be called Moonlight, because it was one of my favorite songs that we did for the album. And now, as we're wrapping things up, I've been writing and singing and we're at the final stretch... and there's this other song that has kind of thrown me for a whirlwind and I love it so much and it's changing everything," she said.

But, she still remained elusive on what that new song title (and potential album title) is.

"I don't want to say anything because they haven't head any of it," Grande said (regarding her fans). "The thing about 'Moonlight' is, I let them hear a little bit of it, but the thing with the other song is, they haven't heard it."

Grande's new album, which now has an unknown title, is planned for release sometime this year. Her last studio album, My Everything, was released in August 2014.
