Ariana Grande’s untitled fourth studio album is now finished, reportedly completed back in March. Said to be her most personal project to date, the singer gives fans the first look off her new album with the release of “No Tears Left to Cry.” “Right now I’m in a state of mind, I wanna be in like all the time,” sings Ariana on the upbeat song. “Ain’t got no tears left to cry…So I’m pickin’ it up, I’m pickin’ up. I’m lovin’, I’m livin’, I’m pickin’ it up,” she continues, moving on past heartbreak over the production of Savan Kotecha, Ilya, and Max Martin.

First teased earlier this week by Grande after returning from a social media hiatus, track song is officially out now on iTunes and all streaming platforms. Ariana Grande’s new album is produced by Pharrell Williams and Max Martin, serving as a follow-up to to 2016’s Dangerous Woman.
