Ariana Grande may have just released an entire album under a secret identity. Or at least, that’s what her fans are thinking, especially with the evidence they uncovered! Her devoted fandom noticed that an artist under the name Zandhr uploaded 10 tracks on Nov. 1, 2018, to a bunch of streaming services. The album was called Nobody Does It Better and apparently, many of the tracks were songs that the “God Is a Woman” singer had already teased or performed in the past, but had never been released. WILD.
So for example, the song “Champagne,” is a studio version of a tune she performed back in 2015; “Better Days” was performed with Victoria Monet at the One Love Manchester tribute concert, and “In Your Hands” was teased back in 2016.
Even though there’s been no confirmation from the songstress herself, the songs certainly sound like Ariana’s voice. And adding fuel to the fire, the biography of Zandhr on Spotify appeared in the upside down font she’s has been using all over her social media for quite some time now.
Although it’s certainly suspicious, a source close to the singer told NME that the release “is not affiliated with the star.” An “unauthorized third party” has been attributed as being behind the release and the songs have since been taken down. They were uploaded just days before she dropped the surprise new single, “thank u, next.” She’s also hinted various times on Twitter that a new album is coming before the end of the year, even though her fourth studio album, Sweetener, was only released in August.
“Issa song and an album …. you’ll get the song first,” the 25-year-old replied to a fan just hours before releasing the single.

The new single pays tribute to her exes, including Big Sean, Pete Davidson, and Mac Miller and ultimately, is all about what she learned about herself from these relationships. Whether the music uploaded by the mysterious Zandhr was her or not though, we are certainly loving “thank u, next” and we can’t wait for her to release more music!
