Ariana Grande is getting her very own Icon Series cosmetic pack ahead of her appearance headlining at the Rift Tour.

Grammy Award-winning musician Ariana Grande will officially be receiving her very own Icon Series skin set in Epic Games' flagship battle royale, Fortnite. Rumors of a potential collaboration between the two parties have been circulating since Epic launched its lawsuit against Apple—during which, eagle-eyed fans were able to pinpoint a few suspicious sections in the fine print. Data miners and credible leakers for the game have been publishing details of the skin, potential back bling, and other details ahead of its official post and reveal.

Ariana Grande Icon Series Skin Explained

Like other Icon Series skin bundles, Ariana Grande's set will be available in the Item Shop. Epic has confirmed a release date of Aug. 4 at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT). However, a price point has not yet dropped.

Traditionally, Icon Series bundles cost 2500 V-Bucks—around $25. DBLTAP cannot verify this price for Grande's bundle.

From the promotional art, alone, we can assume that Grande's skin will feature two style variants. One showcases her with bright iridescent hair and matching outfit—skirt, strappy crop-top, bracers, choker, star earrings, and thigh-high boots. The other changes her outfit to a shattered crystalline aesthetic—not unlike League of Legends' (LoL) K/D/A series—with completely white eyes, matching colorful eye shadow, and her normal brunette hair color. Both have her hair styled in her trademark high ponytail.

It also appears that players can expect Ariana to have her very own melee/harvesting tool in the form of a massive double-faced hammer. Her back bling, "Piggy Smallz," is a small yellow and tie-dye-striped pig wearing a pair of colorful heart-shaped sunglasses. Lastly, her emote features her twirling above the air and blowing the camera a kiss.
