Ariana Grande's "Powerful" New Song is a Response to the Manchester Bombing

The pop star, who has largely remained out of the public spotlight and off social media, returned to Twitter on Tuesday (April 17) and teased fans with a cryptic message. The musician's life was changed forever on May 22, 2017 when a terrorist detonated a suicide bomb after her Manchester, U.K. concert, killing 22 innocent people and injuring hundreds more.

Whilst you're here, remind yourself of the touching moment Ariana comforted a crying school girl at the One Love Manchester show.

Near the end of 2017, Grande confirmed that she was almost done with an album and on New Year's Eve, she posted a video with the caption "See You Next Year" that included snippets of a new song.

Grande posted an upside-down tweet and three Instagram posts suggesting that a new single, possibly named "No Tears Left To Cry" and likely in tribute to the victims of the attack, will be released this Friday.

The wait is nearly over for Ariana Grande fans!

It's been a long while since we've heard new music from Ariana Grande, and rightfully so.

AG hasn't given many details about her new tune, which comes out this Friday, but according to a lucky fan who attended a listening party in London and heard it early, it's pretty freakin' awesome.

Grande's last album, Dangerous Woman, was released in May 2016, and she had been nearing the end of the worldwide tour to support that record when the attack took place.

One hour later, she told her fans: "Missed you".
