The 22-year-old singer made the big announcement via Twitter, sharing her single cover and writing, “Surprise !!!! it’s here!!!! My new single #Focus is now available on @iTunes / @AppleMusic”
“Focus” finds Grande in a world of purple – even the diva’s locks are a shade of lavender, a look she teased on Instagram earlier this month.
Grande embraces her sultry side for the clip, performing intense choreography and delivering flirty lines like, “Just come and get it – let them say what they say.”
Her pipes were put to the test when she perfectly imitated Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in September, but “Focus” is all Grande, all the way. The upbeat, horn-heavy song has the same hallmarks that made her previous singles “Problem” and “Bang Bang” hits, giving her fans a song worthy of that repeat button.
