The final song on the new album, “Get Well Soon,” ends with a long moment of silence. The track runs 5:22, the date of the tragic bombing that left 22 dead and dozens injured.
Grande’s fans are reacting to the tribute and having a hard time holding it together.

Grande stated in an interview with ELLE magazine that “Get Well Soon” is about her physical response to the tragedy. In the months after the Manchester bombing, Grande experienced a decline in health. “When I got home from tour, I had really wild dizzy spells, this feeling like I couldn’t breathe,” she told the magazine.
Grande also showed her emotion during an appearance Thursday night on “The Tonight Show”, breaking down during a tribute to Aretha Franklin.
Grande sang “Natural Woman” in honor of the legendary singer who died on Thursday at the age of 76.
