No Tears Left To Cry - Ariana Grande | Song Review

Whenever an artist that I love releases a new song, I am always excited to give it a listen, and this was no different for Ariana Grande and her new song 'No Tears Left To Cry'. Because of Ariana’s previous music, I definitely had high expectations, and I am confident to say that this song has surpassed everything I had anticipated.


• The Message •
The first thing I instantly noticed when listening to the song itself was the positive message that rings throughout. It not only encourages people to move forward with optimism and pride, but also reflects the importance of everyone doing this as a unit against hate. What I love is that 'No Tears Left To Cry' is already becoming an anthem for what a lot of people need. Whether this reflects bigger issues or those in someone’s personal life, the message of picking yourself up and moving forward no matter what life throws at you is something that is true to a lot of situations for many. I think the overall message of this song is what will make it the anthem it is undoubtedly becoming.


• The Video •
I love that the video was released the same time as the song, because to see the visuals as well as hear the lyrics is a great way to first come across music and the creativity involved in making it. The director of the video – Dave Meyers – explains in a behind the scenes clip that the concept of the video is focused on finding the ground through disorientation and whether this is what you need to do or if in fact the ground is what you make of it. The video itself is cleverly shot and something that I haven’t personally seen done before. I think it captures the idea of moving forward, with most of the video being at night, whilst the ending represents the dawn of a new day.


• Dance Number •
When hearing the title; ‘No Tears Left To Cry’, I (along with many others online) suspected that the song may be an emotional ballad. However, the fact that the song is much more of a dance number than a slow song is one of the reasons I love it so much. I think that it captures the essence of Ariana’s message of positivity through its uplifting melody.  I like that fact that she has chosen to write an upbeat song that will undoubtedly put everyone who listens to it in a good mood, and more importantly in the mood to dance.




Overall, there is nothing I dislike about this song. Every element is positive; whether that be the video, the lyrics or the upbeat melody. Since listening to the song and instantly adding it to my playlists, I cannot wait for the album! I’m sure I am one of many who would love to Thank Ariana Grande for introducing such a fun and uplifting song into the world. I honestly think 'No Tears Left To Cry' is not only a great song to listen to, but one that reflects the person behind the music; a young, positive role model for so many.
