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 ♩
In lieu of the recent violence, Ariana Grande decided to join fellow artist,Victoria Monet, to release “Better Days.” A track to inspire hope that things will get better
Here’s a preview of the lyrics but be sure to peep the full song below.
“How we gonna stop the violence, stop the hurting, stop the hatred, stop the murders?…We’re all human, that’s for certain. Come together, we deserve it.”
Monet explained on her instagram account that she’s “heartbroken by all of the recent tragedies the came as a result of hatred, racism and injustice.”
“Im also sad at how numb some of us are to it, because it is far too common! This is not a video game or a movie you’re witnessing on your screens! This is our unfortunate REALITY! When I think about how I feel, the word confused comes to mind…So today we just want to try and help in one of the ways we know how!”
“Better Days” was produced by Ronny ‘Flip’ Colson and the interesting artwork was created by Amber Park.
