NEW YORK-Ariana Grande has released her first song since a 2017 terrorist attack during her concert in the United Kingdom.
Grande eventually entered the studio late past year, working with Martin and Pharrell Williams, who told the LA Times the singer's new lyrics were "amazing". Optimistic and effervescent, "No Tears Left To Cry" is four minutes of euphoria.
The emoji was the ASL hand gesture for "I love you".
Ariana also appears to allude to overcoming the incident when she sings, "We're way too fly to partake in all this hate", she sings.
The tweet turned out to be a tease of what fans would see in the music video, which features Grande in gravity-defying conditions. Before Tuesday Grande had not posted since January 1 and she told her followers "miss you". "Every bit of emotion because that's who she is".

Chelsea's ever-present Marcos Alonso sealed his place at the left-back position making him the only name from the Blues. Despite Pep Guardiola's team's dominance of the league, there are more star-studded names throughout the squad.
"The things that she has to say on this album, it's pretty next-level", he added.
"No Tears" was written by Grande with Ilya Salmanzadeh, Savan Kotecha and ubiquitous hit-maker Max Martin, writer of 22 number-one hits from Britney Spears's "Baby One More Time" all the way to Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling".
It finds the star emerging from grief and encouraging fans to "come with me".
The Nickelodeon alum croons in the chorus, "Ain't got no tears left to cry / So I'm pickin' it up, pickin' it up (oh yeah) / I'm lovin', I'm livin', I'm pickin' it up".
We're getting serious vertigo watching the new video, which has been directed by Dave Meyers of "Swish Swish" and "Havana" fame.
