Ariana Grande’s New Song is a “Powerful” Response to the Manchester Bombing
Ariana Grande‘s upcoming song, “No Tears Left to Cry,” is one of the most highly anticipated tracks, like, ever. The 24-year-old singer has kept a super low profile for the past several months, finishing her Dangerous Woman World Tour in September 2017 and barely even coming onto to social media since.
But honestly, we don’t blame her. The musician’s life was changed forever on May 22, 2017 when a terrorist detonated a suicide bomb after her Manchester, U.K. concert, killing 22 innocent people and injuring hundreds more. Ari canceled a few shows immediately following the tragedy, but ultimately continued performing and finished out the tour.
AG hasn’t given many details about her new tune, which comes out this Friday, but according to a lucky fan who attended a listening party in London and heard it early, it’s pretty freakin’ amazing.
The fan tells The Blast the “powerful” song isn’t all about the bombing, but definitely alludes to it and left people “hysterically crying” when they finished listening.
“[It] addresses the incident in such a perfect, powerful way,” the Arianator continues. “[Several listeners] openly wept at how she alludes to the bombing and how incredible the song is.”
Ari has been dropping a few subtle teasers to promote the song before its April 20th release, including visuals from what looks to be the single artwork.
TMZ reports that Ariana finished recording her fourth full-length studio album at the beginning of March and those who have heard it call it a “personal” masterpiece. The Nickelodeon alum also co-wrote every single song on the LP, which was produced by Pharrell and Max Martin. Ari has dipped her toes in the world of songwriting in the past, but never to the extent of this. WE ARE SO EXCITED!! AG3 is going to be BEYOND epic.
