Ariana Grande has returned.
On Friday, the pop star dropped her new single “No Tears Left to Cry.”
The track is the first Grande, 24, has released since the Manchester bombing in May 2017, when a terrorist killed 22 people and injured more than 500 at one of the U.K. stops of her Dangerous Woman Tour.
The lyrics of the chorus include: “Right now I’m in a state of mind/ I wanna be in like all the time/ Ain’t got no tears left to cry/ So I’m pickin’ it up, I’m pickin’ up (oh yeah)/ I’m lovin’, I’m livin’, I’m pickin’ it up/ Oh I just want you to come with me/ We’re on another mentality/ Ain’t got no tears left to cry (so don’t cry)/ So I’m pickin’ it up, I’m pickin’ up (oh yeah)/ I’m lovin’, I’m livin’, I’m pickin’ it up.”
Grande also released the Dave Meyers-directed music video to accompany the single’s debut.
After the bombing, Grande suspended her tour then, just weeks later, returned to the U.K. for the star-studded One Love Manchester charity concert. Since wrapping her tour last year, the Nickelodeon alum has maintained a relatively low profile, occasionally sharing snapshots from the studio as she prepares her upcoming fourth album.
Then this week, Grande returned to social media.
“Missed you,” she wrote Tuesday, teasing “No Tears” on Twitter and Instagram with a single teardrop emoji then the art for the single.
