The 27-year-old has teased her legion of Arianators that her Sweetener World Tour, which saw her perform her 2018 album of the same name alongside 2019's Thank U, Next, will be landing on Netflix.
In her signature understated style, Ariana announced the news to her 79.6 million Twitter followers by posting a series of images from the tour, which took place last year.
She simply tagged Netflix underneath, leaving her fans to tease out the meaning in her messages.
Understandably, fans were excited at the news, with one writing: "SWEETENER TOUR MOVIE IS COMING!"
Another shared a meme of Kim Kardashian crying and captioned it: "When is the movie being released?"
A third added: "Ariana I need answers."
Netflix replied: "Excuse me, I love you."
Tyla has contacted Netflix for further comment.
It was previously reported that Ariana sparked a bidding war between major streaming platforms when she announced there was going to be a movie of her 97-date world tour, which saw her perform to more than 1.3 million people.
According to The Sun, Netflix was the frontrunner to land the film, which has been described by insiders as "brutally honest" and "raw".
"Ariana's team are negotiating a huge deal between a number of big hitters, with Netflix and YouTube both showing interest," an insider told the publication at the time.
"Netflix has put forward a starting offer of £4million to get the rights.
"The deal is being negotiated by Ari's closest advisers, led by Scooter Braun.
"She had cameras following her every move on the Sweetener World Tour last year.
"Along with her performances, Ariana was filmed backstage, while travelling and during down time.
"It will be a brutally honest and raw depiction of how tough life can be on the road but will include the happier, heart-warming times too."
YouTube secured the rights to Ariana's last tour documentary, Ariana Grande: Dangerous Woman Diaries, and have other enormous pop stars in their repertoire including multiple BTS series and Justin Bieber: Seasons.
However, Netflix is expanding the list of tour movies, having bagged Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Shawn Mendes and BLACKPINK's tours.
