If those signature pipes weren’t enough of a giveaway, Zandhr’s bio contains upside down writing (Ari’s favorite!) that reads, “right now I’m in a state of mind, I wanna be in like all the time,” lyrics from the 25-year-old’s smash hit single no tears left to cry.

Aside from containing several unreleased songs, the playlist included multiple tracks that fans recognized instantly — including Too Close, a bonus track on the Japanese version of My Everything; Champagne, which seems to be a version of Ari’s previously performed song, Pink Champagne; Better Days, a song she performed with Victoria Monet at the One Love Manchester tribute concert; and In Your Hands, believed to be the collaboration between Ari and Diplo teased back in 2016.
The album was around for about a week before it got attention from fans and subsequently vanished from streaming services.
A source close to the singer told Newsbeat the collection “was not affiliated with her” in any way, so we guess we’ll take this secret album noise with a grain of sweetener.
