Ariana Grande has exclusively revealed to MTV News UK that she’s finished a track for her currently-untitled sophomore album.

Last month, the Almost Is Never Enough singer claimed she had started working on the follow-up to her hugely successful debut LP Yours Truly, which reached No.7 in the UK charts earlier this year.

When quizzed about her forthcoming record, Grande told us: “I start recording the second album in a couple days when I get back to Los Angeles and I’m really excited about it. I don’t know too much yet, we just started working on it.

“I just have one song that I’m very excited about so far that’s kind of done. I’m really excited about it because so much has happened in the last few months… It’s been crazy and I feel like I’ve learnt a lot and grown a lot as a person so I have a lot to write about.”

When pressed further on the track that she’s already finished, Ariana admitted: “It’s called Ridiculous, I’ve never said that before. It’s a great song – I love it. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to keep it or not because there’s a little string sample in it, but I want to take all the music out and do something different anyway. So I’m going to change that.”

The 20-year old beauty went on to describe the song as “really crazy” and “a bit all over the place”, before concluding: “It’s interesting melodically… It’s more like gymnastics. It’s like a weird melody and jumpy.”

And, following the news that woman of the moment Miley Cyrus wrote a song for Grande in the showerNathan Sykes‘  lady added that she’s “so excited” to hear what Mi-Cy has to offer, stating: “I love her. I think she’s a genius.”
