Ariana Grande is back with brand new music marking the first time the singers released anything new since the Manchester Terror Attack last May.
Today (Friday 20th April) 24-year-old Grande unveiled her new track No Tears Left To Cry, 11 months on from the attack during her concert at Manchester.
Ariana Grande’s partner Mac Miller was among those praising the singer’s new song, he wrote on Twitter that he was “very proud of this girl right here”.
American rapper Miller performed alongside Grande at her One Love Manchester benefit concert at the city’s Old Trafford cricket ground in June, two weeks after the death of 22 concertgoers.
Ariana returned to Twitter this week, when she started teasing her new music, before that Grande had not posted since January 1.
While this morning she tweeted the YouTube link for No Tears Left To Cry.

At the end of the pop star’s new video, directed by Dave Meyers, a bee can be seen flying off screen – an allusion to the worker bee symbol of Manchester.
Fans of Grande shared their thoughts about the track on Twitter, with one defending the singer for not releasing a ballad.
The fan tweeted: “The people who are complaining about ntltc not being a ballad clearly don’t know how much it means to people who were at manchester.”
They added that “a fast, uplifting song is what i needed. i feel strong”.
Another fan responded: “And I feel the exact same, if it was about Manchester I wouldn’t have been able to listen to it.
“I’m so glad she respected us enough to bring out a song like she did xx.”
