Ariana Grande released a duet this week with singer Victoria Monet, the single, called ‘Better Days’ comes as an uplifting song following the recent horrendous violence and police-shootings. The single was originally released by just Victoria Monet in June and was a tribute to the victims of the Orlando attack.

When Monet released the track she wrote “I’m heartbroken by all of the recent tragedies that came as a result of hatred, racism and injustice. I’m also sad at how numb some of us are to it, because it is far too common. To all the lives taken pointlessly, we will not let you be forgotten. You have sparked change in this world with your angel wings. Rest in Peace.”

Ariana Grande portrays message through music as it is something we all connect through

Ariana Grande posted on Instagram about the meaning and the power of music, “Music is a universal language that all of us can feel regardless of color lines, gender, sexuality, age, race, religion...it unifies us. We believe we cannot fight hate with hate, only love. Just as we cannot fight darkness with more darkness. Only Light.”

The track is available online and is on Victoria Monet’s Soundcloud account.

Some of the lyrics of the meaningful song are as follows, “Baby there’s a war right outside our window, don’t you hear the people fighting for their lives….but it’s guna be alright, as long as I got you and me, in your arms I find my shelter, deep in your love I will hide...you and me stop the world when we’re together. You find a way to take my mind to a better place, hoping for better days, need some better days. Days where things are better. I can hear the sirens right outside our window, and I can hear the children crying while their mothers cry, I’m praying for the people right outside our window, hoping they find peace at night.”

Ariana Grande sings “stop the hating, stop the murders”

Grande has a verse in the song saying “How we guna stop the violence, stop the hurting, stop the hating, stop the murders, we’re all human that’s for certain, come together we deserve it. What kind of life will our babies have if we don’t change up and make it last, it starts right here, it starts right now with love and hope.

Ariana has already spoken of the tragedy saying “During this challenging time we have to remember that the only way we will progress is if the overruling force is Love. Too many precious lives were taken from us this week, this month, this year.”
