After spending two years away from releasing music, and performing on her Dangerous Woman Tour, Ariana Grande has officially released her debut single from her forthcoming album. No Tears Left To Cry is the jumpstart into her upcoming musical era.
Two weeks before its release, all of her friends and musical producers were seen wearing a grey crew neck, with the songs title directly across is, but in upside-down text. This sparked many rumors on what the single would entail. Due to the title, many people believed the single would be a soulful ballad that would showcase Grande’s growth over the past year of her life. Although the growth part is right, No Tears Left To Cry was the complete opposite. It’s a groovy smash hit that features a 90’s diva vibe, especially the verses preceding the chorus.
The night the song was released, the video was as well. It featured Grande in an alternate inception like universe, as the whole word was rotating upside-down. Ariana walks on walls and ceilings, before falling into an endless pit of string lights. She hangs off the side of buildings on the fire escape, as well as having a total dance break on the roof of a building, before jumping off.
She promoted the song on the Jimmy Fallon show, as she released tons of information on her upcoming album. It’s set release date is this summer, in August to be exact. The title she chose is Sweetener which describes bringing light into someone else’s life, or vise versa. It includes tracks such as Raindrops, The Light Is Coming, R.E.M., and God Is A Woman.
Aside from all the album hype, Grande is very excited about the new music. From the production on the era’s first video, to scheduling to perform the opening sequence at the Billboard Music Awards. Grande has always been very passionate about her music and is ready to promote her personal growth.
