UPDATE (10/30): It's here! Listen to Ariana Grande's new single "Focus" right here!

Update (10/6):  Ariana Grande fans, today is your lucky day. We finally get to hear a bit of her upcoming single, "Focus." 

Our pop princess teased a few seconds of the tune today via Instagram with the caption, "twenty four days til focus '1....2...3.... cmon girls.'" It feels very Fifth Harmony-girl power to us, and we're here for it! Listen to it above.

Update (9/16): While slaying some spot-on impressions of Christina Aguilera and Britney SpearsAriana Grande also found time to reveal major details about her upcoming new single during her appearance on the Tonight Show. The starlet told the audience her single comes out on October 30 and later followed up with a tweet including its title, "Focus." It falls in line with previous reports (below) that Ari had a new track, said to be titled "Focus on Me," and that it would be out this fall.

It seems like an awfully long lead-up time to a new single, but as we saw with Justin Bieber (who shares a manager with Ari in Scooter Braun) his 30-day countdown campaign to "What Do You Mean?" spurred a No. 1 single and a legitimate comeback for the pop star. 

The Ariana hype starts NOW! Read on for other details about "Focus" below.

Original story (8/5): Thanks to day one of the iHeartMedia Music Summit on Tuesday, we learned about an upcoming Selena Gomez single and saw Nick Jonas perform his new song. And according to All Access' report, we've got a fresh Ariana Grande tune to look forward to, too.

The writeup says the crowd bore witness to a video of Grande running "through the Republic [Records] offices—involving the whole staff in the video." Yup, sounds like our Ari.

The new single is titled "Focus on Me," which Ariana teased back in June with the hashtags #thisisahint and #youllsee. There's even a possibility these little snippets come from the song.

Stay tuned; we've got your back when it drops. No word on whether it's the lead single from a new album or a track off a re-release of her hit LP My Everything, but in the meantime check out the first details on Ariana's third album Moonlight right here.
