On Tuesday, the newly single 21-year-old singer teased her new song "Love Me Harder," posting a 14-second "snippetttt" to Instagram—"(as per your request)"!
The former Nickelodeon star recently collaborated with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj on "Bang Bang," and Ariana's second studio album My Everything is set for an Aug. 22 release. Clearly, the "Problem" songstress has a lot to look forward to, but she's had some tough blows lately, too.
Last month proved to be be an especially rough one for the star. On July 13, Ariana and Jennette McCurdy's show Sam & Cat was canceled by Nickelodeon. Meanwhile, her beloved grandfather was fighting a battle with cancer, although sadly, he died on July 22.
Ariana described her grandfather's passing as "the hardest thing imaginable," but expressed gratitude to her family and friends for their support during his final days. However, as a source told E! News, Ariana's then-boyfriend Jai Brooks "wasn't there like he should have been" during those difficult times.
"I thank everybody who was here for me when I needed them," she tweeted cryptically, "as the ones who weren't really broke my heart." (Ariana's rep declined to comment on her relationship status.)
July was definitely a tough month for Ariana, but she seems to be starting off August on a hopeful note with lots to look forward to!
