Although Ariana Grande has been spending a lot of time in the makeup lab recently, it seems as if some fans only prefer her to spend time in the recording studio.
The 29-year-old megastar has made an impactful splash in the music industry since her departure from the Nickelodeon shows she appeared on as a teenager.
Most notably, the Grammy-winning singer has released albums Yours Truly, My Everything, Dangerous Woman, thank u, next, Sweetener, and most recently Positions in 2020.
However, some fans have been calling out the singer to say that 2020 was too long ago for an album drop.
Ariana has been busy releasing new products for r.e.m. beauty, the makeup brand that she originally launched back in 2018.
With an ever-evolving line of new items, Ariana took to TikTok recently to show off some of the new goodies that will be available with her Chapter Four: Out Of Body release.
Naturally, a few pressed followers have noted their preference for Grande returning to the music side of her career, rather than focusing on her new makeup line.

One fan begged the question, “we really love u Ari but can u start singing again plss?”
