I DON'T THINK THEY CAN HANDLE THIS! 

Ariana Grande is dropping her new album Sweetener in three weeks and just let out a big surprise about one of the tracks. It was rumored "R.E.M." stemmed from an unreleased Beyonce track titled "Wake Up" and now the "Light Is Coming" visionary has confirmed that is indeed true.

It's nice to hear that she made "R.E.M." an "entriely new song" becuase there were leaked snippets of "Wake Up" on YouTube. Based off of what we've received so far from Sweetener it's sure to be a smash. 

Let's go Ari!!!
