Ariana Grande releases surprise Christmas album

Ariana Grande has released a surprise Christmas album called 'Christmas & Chill'.

The six-track record features original Christmas music, including the tracks 'Wit It This Christmas', 'December' and 'Not Just On Christmas'.

The chart-topping singer has been teasing the release of the album through a series of tantalising messages she posted on social media.

Ariana tweeted: "ain't no ice or no chills.. no [snowman] to build... most of our friends at the beach... but my baby's in town and we're gonna do some winter things (sic)"

The singer, 22, has subsequently encouraged fans to get in touch with her about the album, which she revealed was put together in just one week.

She tweeted: "btw, y'all are my only plan today bbs.... send me cute videos of you living to #christmasandchil or questions or whatever you'd like! (sic)

"we did the whole thing in a week."

Meanwhile, Ariana recently dedicated her American Music Award to her "nonna" after overcoming stiff competition to win the coveted gong at last month's ceremony.

The 'Break Free' hitmaker was honoured with the gong for Best Female Pop/Rock Artist of the Year and subsequently thanked her grandmother in an emotional tribute.

Through tears, she said: "I just want to thank my fans - I have the most incredible fans. Ew I'm crying! But I love you guys. Thank you so, so much.

"I also want to say thank you to my family who are here tonight. I owe a lot of this to my Nonna!"
