Ariana Grande is recording new music.

The 21-year-old singer took to Instagram to reveal a year on from releasing her chart-topping single 'Problem' with Iggy Azalea, she ''may or may not be in the studio'' working on new music.

Along with a photo, she thanked her fans for their support, writing: ''One year since #problem!!!! what a year it's been. i'll never be able to find the words to fully express my gratitude and appreciation to be able to do what i love and to have the greatest, sweetest, funnniest (but actually the funniest....... ever), kindest, most generous and genuine fans (loves) in the world by my side.

''y'all are dream babes and i love you. here's to more music and memories (i may or may not be in the studio working on it right now) (sic).''

While the 'Break Free' star's music career is going from strength to strength, her love life is the opposite, as she recently announced she had split from 'Blessings' rapper Big Sean after eight months of dating.

A joint statement from the former couple's representatives read: ''They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends.

''We kindly ask that the media respect their wish for privacy regarding this personal matter at this time.''
