When tragedy hits, some of us turn to music as an uplifting force to help us move on. What do you turn to when music, that very thing that is supposed to comfort you, turns to be the cause of your heartbreak?
In May 2017, Ariana Grande took to the stage in Manchester to serenade her fans there with their favorite tunes. The concert went on as planned while fans were enjoying themselves. Nothing can compare to what would happen that night. The lives of 22 people ended. Men, women, and children’s lives changed forever. Families were torn apart.
After hearing this, Ariana put together the ‘One Love’concert honoring those lives lost. After putting on this concert which raised money to help the families affected, Grande just wanted to hug her family a little tighter for awhile. The heartbreak for this 24 year old had her emotionally drained for months. When Ariana Grande dried her tears, she was ready to hit the studio again. She was done crying.
What she wanted to do was love, live and pick up the pieces. With this new hit song, Grande did just that. The song starts off on a somber note, but soon turns into a banger.
Ariana sings “Right now I’m in a state I want to be in, like, all the time”.
As the song premiered, social media had in trending in less than 30 minutes. If this song is any indication of what the album will be like, get ready because all that needs to be said is ARIANA GRANDE IS BACK!
