” No Tears Left To Cry ” is the first single by Ariana Grande for her upcoming album, Sweetener, the fourth studio album released under Republic Records after Dangerous Woman (2016) on April 20, 2018.
The 24 year-old American child actor turned singer is known for her vocal range, with many comparing her to the likes of Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. She immediately won the Rising Star award by Billboard Women in Music in 2014 and New Artist of the Year when her first debut album, Yours Truly was released in 2013.
The song was written by Ariana Grande herself in collaboration with Savan Kotecha, Max Martin and Ilya Salmanzadeh, who also produced the album. The music video was directed by the celebrated Dave Meyers who is known for his work with Katy Perry and Camilla Cabello and Kendrick Lamar.
The song and the video explores the artistic representation of the disorientation that people go through and the quest to restore composure.
Ariana Grande was emotionally traumatised by a terrorist bombing outside the stadium during her live performance in Manchester, England, where twenty-two people died and several hundred injured. She organised a live charity performance to raise funds for the victims, and it brought in a massive collaboration of artists in one stage. It was an act of defeating grief with music.
” No Tears Left To Cry ” is the ideal song to represent Ariana’s comeback from the Manchester incident. The lyrics resonate her emotional, mental and physical state when she feels like there’s “ no tears left to cry ”, she feels it’s time to pick up the pieces of life and put them back.
After teasing the fans for several days, the song was released along with the official music video on her Youtube Channel. After 24 hours of its release, the music video reached over 16 million views, breaking her previous record of 7 million for “ Focus “. It is still currently trending on social media and has received over 238 million views on YouTube.
Within two months after its release,” No Tears Left To Cry ” made it to Number One on iTunes in ninety countries, number two in the UK Singles Chart and number three on the US Billboard Hot 100. It was also the most streamed song on Spotify in its first-week release.
This single has been critically acclaimed as one of Ariana’s best song, surpassing “ Dangerous Woman ” by miles because of the emotionally charged lyrics and the upbeat music.
The song is full of positivity while also throwing a little shade on the haters. It opens with a fade-out ballad intro. It sounds like a dark, slow ballad for the first thirty seconds but bursts into a disco/RnB with cool house beats.
The chorus features the artist’s trademark soaring vocals contrasted by low rhythmic spoken verse in the next line. The soaring and dipping blend of the song and the tempo of the beat make it the ultimate earworm of the moment. ” No Tears Left To Cry ” is an airy, danceable disco pop that’s perfect for post-traumatic recovery.
