Ariana Grande made a surprise appearance at the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
The 24-year-old singer made a special appearance during Kygo’s set at the annual music festival, which is held in Indio, California, to perform her new song.
Her manager Scooter Braun had previously teased a surprise performance from Ariana at the festival.
Alongside a cactus emoji, referencing the desert location of the festival, he tweeted earlier in the day: “Hey @ArianaGrande … what are u are you doing tonight???
His message was followed by a second one, which read: “On the way the Coachella stage! Let’s see who is there?????
Ariana also shared short videos and photos of herself in a helicopter with her mother Joan and boyfriend Mac Miller, further fuelling speculation she was heading to the annual event to perform.
She most recent record was ‘Beautiful Woman’ in 2016 – has given fans a snippet of a sneak peak from the studio on social media, and suggested new material could be on the way.If u wanted confirmation that I’ve been workin why didn’t you just ask?
She then shared an image of herself in the studio, followed by a short clip of herself working away on production.
‘’But knowing me, I’m going to be in the studio because I love it, and I want to create. I started an album already a year ago, over a year ago, but I want to keep creating, and it’s not done yet. So I’m going to take my sweet ass time, so I’ll be rested and ready to go again as soon as possible.’’
On the chorus, she sings: “I’m loving, I’m living, I’m picking it up.”
The single – which was produced by Max Martin – also features the line: “We’re way too fly to partake in all this stuff. We out here vibin’, we vibin’, we vibin’.”
The accompanying music video includes the worker bee – which has been a symbol of the city of Manchester since at least 1842.
