Ariana Grande‘s record label hosted a listening party for her new song and it left the room in tears.
We’re told the star’s team had an exclusive listening party a few days ago in London for her new song, “No Tears Left to Cry.”
A person who was in the room tells The Blast that the event consisted of around 20 hand-selected people, which included members of BBC and Radio One. The single is debuting on Friday on Radio One.
The song was so powerful, our source says people were “hysterically crying” by the end.
According to our sources, “No Tears” isn’t all about the tragic bombing at her Manchester concert but that the lyrics allude to the incident. Our source says Grande “addresses the incident in such a perfect, powerful way.”
Several people “openly wept at how she alludes to the bombing and how incredible the song is.”
Grande recently broke her social media hiatus to tease her new song. The award winner took a break from social media at the end of 2017 and this is her first foray back into the public eye.

In May of 2017, a suicide bomber killed 22 people and wounded dozens more outside of an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England. In response to the tragedy, Grande and a score of music’s biggest stars, like Miley Cyrus, got together for the One Love Manchester benefit concert.
