“It was actually a show we put together just to celebrate the Lover album coming out,” she continued. “And we filmed it! So that is going to be airing on ABC on May 17 and the next day it will on be on Hulu and Disney+ – so I’m really excited about it. And again, sending my love to you guys and hope you’re well.”
