Ariana Grande’s been expanding her brand this year. First, a chart-topping album, then a signature fragrance—and now, her very own Starbucks drink.
Grande and the coffee chain have teamed up to debut a new permanent addition to the menu: the Cloud Macchiato. The drink, served hot or cold, puts a twist on their classic macchiato with cold foam, which Starbucks describes as “an airy microfoam frothed cold and blended until smooth.”
Grande fans knew something was up when the Thank U, Next singer and the brand simultaneously posted cryptic tweets prominently featuring cloud emojis.

But that’s not all. Grande’s collaboration with Starbucks will also mean a debut of a new playlist, featuring her own music and her favorites, on Saturday. Another playlist made specially for International Women’s Day will be released on Friday.
