After months of laying low, Ariana Grande has definitely used the last 24 hours to let us know that she’s *back*. Yesterday morning, Ari debuted a new single, “No Tears Left to Cry,” her first since the tragic bombing at her Manchester, U.K. tour date that left 22 people dead and 500 wounded. And just as we were all hitting replay on the song for the 54th time yesterday (not that I know from personal experience or anything), the singer continued her comeback with a surprise performance at Coachella.
Grande joined Kygo on the stage at the first night of weekend two of Coachella to give a quick (yet fabulous) performance of “No Tears Left to Cry” along with Marvin Gaye’s classic, “Sexual Healing.” Of course, the crowd collectively lost it.
“No Tears Left to Cry” wasn’t the only new thing Ari was debuting at Coachella either — it looks like she’s swapped her natural brunette locks for a super bright, almost-lavender platinum new ‘do, which is also featured on the song’s album art.
Her boyfriend, rapper Mac Miller, has been adorably supportive as Ariana has made her way back into the public eye — he tweeted an sweet message of support for her following the release of her new song, and according to Grande’s Instagram story, was by her side before she took the stage at Coachella.
very proud of this girl right here
Welcome back. We missed you.
One of a kind. https://t.co/aUJC9UL9fb
