    Fans Are Praising Ariana Grande For Releasing A Song Honouring The Date Of The Manchester Bombing

    The 40 seconds of silence heart. Ouch.

    In case you missed it, Ariana Grande just dropped her fourth studio album, Sweetener.

    Republic, @arianagrande / Via

    And it's safe to say her fans are absolutely loving her new music.

    @ArianaGrande really have to take a moment to sit and digest this masterpiece. the most beautiful thing ever.

    this. album. i feel so safe and loved just by listening to sweetener. i’ve never felt this way before. such a warm, fuzzy, cozy feeling all in my heart and through my body. im so content and grateful for this gift that ariana has given to us.

    wow.. every second you put it this album was worth it. this is BY FAR your best work ever.. i'm speechless and so damn proud of you @ArianaGrande

    But the one thing they noticed most is the 40-second silence at the end of her last track, "get well soon".

    ariana deliberately had 40 seconds of silence on get well soon to make the length of the song 5 minutes and 22 seconds i'm actually crying

    The added 40 seconds makes the total runtime of the song five minutes and 22 seconds (5:22).

    Twenty-two people were killed in the bombing at Ariana’s Manchester concert on May 22 (5/22).

    And people (including me) really couldn't handle their emotions when they made the connection.


    the 40 seconds of silence in gws, she owns my heart forreal ♡ thank you we love you @ArianaGrande

    the manchester attacks happened on 5/22 and on the last track of ariana’s album, she added 40 seconds of silence to honor the victims of the attack and for the song to match the date, 5 minutes and 22 seconds...
