Before breaking up with Mac Miller and the official announcement for Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson's engagement, the singer released a heartfelt dance-pop record titled, 'No Tears Left to Cry' (overnight on April 20 through Republic Records). It signifies change and being able to pick up from where you left off—even when it is difficult and seems impossible. In my personal opinion, it is the most beautiful song that the twenty-four-year-old has released to date. I think everyone, who has ever been in a toxic or draining relationship, can understand when the pop star is coming from when she says she has no more tears left in her body. She has been through a lot (taken a hiatus following the Manchester Arena bombing during her 'Dangerous Woman Tour' in May of 2017). It's great to see her pour some of it out in the form of song.

Last week, Miami-based producer Suzi Analogue remixed and unleashed her version of the track that makes the change, often strenuous to achieve, feel as if it is viable. The producer's tune is a high-energy composition like the Max Martin and Ilya original but in a jungle-esque delivery. The edits pick apart the connective hook—repeating significant sections that remind its listeners that we're all inevitably going to go through some things, but importantly, it's about how we bounce back and maintain. Check out Suzi Analogue's fire-breather of a remix below, titled, 'SUMMER BBZ 01: No Tearz'. It is seven minutes and twenty seven-seconds long.

Suzi Analogue also made an official PRIDE playlist for SoundCloud. Listen to the thirteen-track curation below. It features original music by Cakes Da Killa, Mykki Blanco featuring Princess Nokia, RAFiA, and more.
