Ariana Grande and Victoria Monét Join Forces on “Better Days” In Wake Of Recent Tragedies

It’s been a trying week in the U.S. with the killings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Philando Castile in Minnesota, and 5 police officers in Dallas. In wake of the recent shootings, Ariana Grande and singer-songwriter Victoria Monét have joined forces on a new track that has them calling for “Better Days.” The song comes with a note from Monét,“I’m heartbroken by all of the recent tragedies that came as a result of hatred, racism and injustice.” Ariana has voiced her thoughts as well through Instagram, calling on people to fight the recent tragedies with love not hate:

During this challenging time, we have to remember that the only way we will progress is if the overruling force is #Love. “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 can not fight hate with hate, only love. Just as we can not fight darkness with more darkness. Only Light.” Too many precious lives were taken from us this week, this month, this year. Rest in peace #AltonSterling. Rest in peace #PhilandoCastile #BlackLivesMatter. And the police that were peacefully guarding the #BlackLivesMatter rally in Dallas…. Rest in peace. #LorneAhrens, #MichaelKrol, #MichaelJSmith, #BrentThompson & #PatrickZamarripa. Stay strong and know that better days are coming… #BetterDays by Victoria + Ariana ..listen on @VictoriaMonet’s soundcloud ♩
