Responding to a fan on Twitter, Ari talks about how she "felt like i was floating for like 3 months last year & not in a nice way."

'Get Well Soon' is track 15 of Ari's new album Sweetener, which is set for release on 17 August 2018. The song's heartfelt lyrics include the line: "I’m with you, I’m with you, I’m with you, Just call me no matter the issue, no matter what."

In a recent interview with FADER, Ariana discussed how she played 'Get Well Soon' to her fans before her record label.

"The thing that makes me feel OK with opening up and finally allowing myself to be vulnerable is that I know [my fans] feel the same feelings. I’ve talked to them about it. I have fans that have become friends of mine," she said.

"I have their numbers, and we talk all the time. I played [the song] for them before I played it for my label. They were like, 'Thank you' when they heard that one. It was so scary to do that, but to see them be like, 'I get it, I feel that too.'"

Ariana first shared a snippet of the track on Instagram back on New Year's Day, commenting "p.s. this is get well soon."
