Ariana Grande Shares Studio Footage to Celebrate 4 Months of ‘Eternal Sunshine’: ‘So Grateful’

A year ago, fans weren’t certain when they’d ever get a new album from Ariana Grande. Now, the world has had Eternal Sunshine for exactly four months, an anniversary the pop star commemorated by sharing studio footage from the project’s recording process on Instagram Sunday (July 7).


In the clips, Grande records and edits vocals for the singles “We Can’t Be Friends (Wait for Your Love)” and “The Boy Is Mine” — which peaked at Nos. 1 and 16 on the Billboard Hot 100, respectively — sometimes sitting alone at her computer and other times joined by producers Max Martin and Ilya. In one snippet, she tells the camera, “I think there’s something special here,” before recording herself laying down melody passes for what would become “Supernatural.”

In another video, Martin looks confused as Grande aims her selfie camera at him with a filter activated that superimposes three white bunnies around his face. “Why?” he says dumbfoundedly as the vocalist laughs.

“wanted to share a few more of my favorite eternal sunshine studio memories,” Grande captioned the post. “these make me so happy. i cannot believe how much has happened already or that it has already been (and only been) four months.”

“so grateful for all of the beautiful eternal sunshine memories so far and for all that is to come!” she added. “love you all so.”

After several weeks of tinkering in the studio, Eternal Sunshine arrived March 8. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and stayed in the top spot for two weeks, led by the Hot 100-topping “Yes, And?”

And though she’s still busy with Wicked press obligations and her R.E.M. Beauty business, Grande has managed to keep the album era running strong. Most recently, she dropped a music video for “The Boy Is Mine” starring Penn Badgley, shortly after which she recruited icons Brandy and Monica for an all-star remix of the track.

“i cannot wait for everything that has yet to come within this eternal sunshine cycle (that has only just begun & may it never end),” she teased back in April. “thank you for your love.”
