The drink is a nod to the singer's love of clouds.
Ariana Grande and Starbucks sent social media into a tizzy Monday after posting mysterious twin tweets on Twitter. First, the popular coffee chain tweeted a message that included a series of emojis including clouds, a cup of coffee, and a green heart. Just two minutes later, Grande tweeted a similar message, except hers had a black heart and the date March 5 attached. Fans went wild trying to figure out what the singer and the company could be alluding to, but Business Insider shut down speculation after revealing the details.
According to documents, on Tuesday, March 5, Starbucks is dropping a brand new Grande-inspired drink called the Cloud Macchiato. The drink will have espresso, cold whipped foam, and a caramel drizzle. It's believed that the cloud emojis in the initial tweets were a hint to the name, which is also a nod to Grande's love of clouds. Last month, Grande even launched her Cloud fragrance and this new partnership should aid in promoting that, as well.
As if the Grande-Starbucks fusion couldn't get any deeper, the coffee chain will also feature a Grande playlist that hits stores on March 9 and will air until March 15. The singer's playlist will feature not only her music, but some of her favorite songs by other artists. In addition to that, on March 8, Starbucks debuts its International Women's Day playlist specially curated for the month of March.
