Ariana Grande was recently in tears during an emotionally challenging interview with Beats Radio 1. While discussing her latest album, Sweetener, she introduced the track “Get Well Soon,” which is a track about mental health and dedicated to the victims and survivors of the Manchester Bombing at her concert last summer.
Grande stumbled over her words while talking about the track, explaining the need for kindness in today’s world. She talked about the lives changed by lack of security and fear, and how she tries to remain brave for her fans.
“Get Well Soon” is meant to be a “musical hug” for her fans. The song expresses a struggle with mental health and anxiety with lyrics like, “My body’s here on earth, but I’m floating / Girl what’s wrong with you? Come back down.”
“I just wanted to give people a hug musically,” she shared with radio host Ebro Darden. “And I feel like the lyrics can be kind of corny when I talk about wanting to hug you and stuff. But I really do, because … I don’t know … people have gotta be nicer.”
“I’m so sorry, I’m falling apart.”
