Ariana Grande Gears Up to Release New Song, Possibly Titled “R.E.M.”

By  | 

Ariana Grande new song may bring on the ZzZ’s… but it’s not what you think. How do we know this? Well, for one, her recent tweets were pretty telling.

After the mega success of Ari’s comeback single, “No Tears Left to Cry,” she’s ALREADY teasing a second track. On Saturday, the songstress was feeling some type of way and tweeted the words, “you’re such a dream to me.”

Fans weren’t sure if this was simply a heartfelt expression or something more. But shortly after that initial tweet, Ari tweeted the letters “r.e.m.” and Arianators went into FULL speculation mode. These three letters were tweeted upside down… similar to “No Tears Left to Cry,” and that is how Ariana revealed the title of her second track.

After a quick Google search, we’re reminded that REM sleep is “a kind of sleep that occurs at intervals during the night and is characterized by rapid eye movements, more dreaming and bodily movement, and faster pulse and breathing.” Turns out Ariana Googled it too, ’cause she posted this exact definition on her Instagram Stories. Before we had time to theorize what this will mean for her song, the singer hit us with some lyrics — basically confirming this is, in fact, a new track.

Ari eventually wrapped up the cryptic tweets with three cloud emojis, which led fans to speculate that the song was coming in three days. One fan tweeted Ari, writing, “#3daysuntilREM” and she responded writing, “Not quite yet. U know I can’t resisssst sum times. I love u.”

As of now, the new song’s drop date is still TBD. However, some think she may premiere the song May 1st during her hour-long takeover of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. So, at this point, we literally know nothing else about this track, so it’s time to start the hypothesizing. “R.E.M.” has to be about Mac Miller, right? Or is there another guy in her life? One of her pups? Is this a lullaby? WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? Regardless, sleep and a song about sleep is definitely something we can get down with.
