Fans might be hearing new music from Ariana Grande soon. The "Dangerous Woman" singer has reportedly finished her upcoming album.

An insider claims that the still-untitled record was produced by hitmakers Pharrell Williams and Max Martin, the same man behind the songs "Problem" and "Into You." Moreover, Grande has already previewed her new work at the wrap meet that was attended by executives from Republic Records and her manager, Scooter Braun.

A source told TMZ that the follow-up to Dangerous Woman is a "personal masterpiece." The album is supposedly her most personal work to date.

Grande has not released a new album since 2016.

Moving On

The pop superstar has had an incredibly difficult 2017. A concert in Manchester was rocked by an explosion in May and took the lives of several of the singer's young fans.

According to Braun, the former Disney actor cried for days after the terror attack for every victim whose lives were unfairly taken at the event. The singer was traumatized and, for a long time, questioned if she should ever sing her songs again.

"She felt everything — every face they announced, every name, she wore on her sleeve," Grande's manager told Cal Fussman in a podcast. "Every bit of emotion because that's who she is."

He added that Grande thought that pushing through with a benefit concert would be the last thing she could do for the victims. Despite her trauma, the singer decided to host the One Love Manchester concert in June. It was attended by 50,000 people. 

Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, and Katy Perry also performed onstage. The event aimed to raise funds for those directly affected by the tragedy. 

"It was beyond tough. But every single time we got down we reminded each other we get to go home. Our loved ones are still going to be there," he added. "We didn't have the right to be so sad we couldn't continue."

Ariana Grande Ends Social Media Hiatus

Grande also returned to Instagram this week after a brief social media hiatus. The singer uploaded her first story since she missed her appearance at the 2018 Brit Awards

The pop princess reminisced about her Honeymoon Tour which took place three years ago. 

"happy 3 year anniversary honeymoon tour," she said on the post. Grande also posted several photos from the show, including some behind-the-scenes action. 

The Honeymoon Tour which took place in 2015 was her first ever world tour.
