Grande talked about "get well soon," a song she recorded to remind everyone to "be there for each other as much as we can."
For Ariana Grande, the song "get well soon" off her new album sweetener is a deeply personal one, inspired in part by the 2017 Manchester terrorist attack at one of her concerts that left 22 people dead. In a Friday interview with Ebro Darden on Apple Music's Beats 1 radio, Grande spoke through tears about the song and her experiences following the attack. But early in the interview, Grande notes that the song isn't just about Manchester. "It's also about personal demons and anxiety, and more intimate tragedies, as well," she said. "Mental health is so important. People don't pay enough mind to it... People don't pay attention to what's happening inside... That's why I felt like it was important. I just wanted to give people a hug, musically."
