Ariana Grande’s comeback is in full swing.
After several rumors and a slew of online teasers, the 24-year-old singer has delivered a new single called “No Tears Left to Cry,” as well as a music video for the track.
The track arrives months after Grande concluded her Dangerous Woman World Tour, which was interrupted by a May 2017 terrorist attack at the Manchester Arena. “No Tears Left to Cry” marks Grande’s first original solo record since the tragic bombing; which is why the anticipated release stirred so many emotions amongst her enormous fan base. Grande previewed the track at a recent listening party in London, where fans were reportedly brought to tears. A source told the Blast that several attendees “openly wept” after hearing the song. However, it’s important to note that the song isn’t specifically about the deadly tragedy.
“No Tears Left to Cry” is said to be the lead single off Grande’s upcoming fourth studio album—her first full-length release since 2016’s Dangerous Woman. The “Break Free” artist began teasing the project in the fall of 2017, more than a year after she reportedly began working on it.
“I’m going to be in the studio because I love it, and I want to create,” she told Billboard. “I started an album already a year ago, over a year ago, but I want to keep creating, and it’s not done yet. So I’m going to take my sweet ass time, so I’ll be rested and ready to go again as soon as possible.”
Well, it sounds like she’s finally ready to take over the charts again.
