Ariana Grande: Could she have a secret album out there?

The "God Is A Woman" hitmaker, 25, performed her breakup anthem, "Thank U, Next" for the first time on the November 7 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

After releasing her incredible album "Sweetener" just a couple of months ago, Ariana Grande suddenly dropped her new song "thank u, next" out of nowhere recently - and now she's performed it for the first time ever on Ellen.

Fortunately, Ariana's friends Victoria Monet and Tayla Parx - both of whom are co-writers of the track - were serving as her backing singers, and quickly managed to make her laugh, helping her complete the performance.

At one point, Grande stood up on a chair, bopping to her song in white heeled boots, but when she stepped down, she stumbled and fell, exclaiming, "Oh my god!"

Djokovic back at No. 1; replaces Nadal, whose season is over
So yes, the Swiss legend, Roger Federer and the invincible man from Serbia, Novak Djokovic hold the crest at the tournament. He was his usual dominant self on clay, collecting an 11th French Open title and three more titles along the way.

Apparently Pete Davidson's statement on their split on Saturday Night Live didn't blindside Ariana Grande because she knew he would bring it up.

The tune, which namechecks several of her famous exes, including former fiance, Pete Davidson, the late Mac Miller, Big Sean, and Ricky Alvarez, is a touching tribute to the past men in her life and to the woman she's become as a result. "'Cause she grew from the drama".

She moved into more emotional territory as the song progressed, holding back tears while singing about her future wedding day. It's one thing to sing the words, "I'm so fucking grateful for my ex", and it's another to really look like you mean them. "He didn't find out about Ariana's song until later, and that didn't change what he said on 'Weekend Update'".

The singer also slipped up a bit at the end when she concluded the performance by running up the stairs through the audience. Oh my bad, I thought we were supposed to exit at the top. We all love you.
