Witnessing Ariana and Pharrell in the studio together proves they were a match made in musical heaven. While recording “Get Well Soon,” they shared a deep convo about how the intensely personal Sweetener closer is meant to make people “feel rainbow clouds,” and Ari explained how much that song and “R.E.M.” mean to her.
“These two, I feel like, sound like my DNA. They’re how I wish I felt, how I’m striving to feel,” she said, later adding, “This feels like the most ‘me’ an album has ever felt. A lot of people were like, ‘How does it feel stepping out of your comfort zone?’ And I’m like nah, I don’t feel like I stepped out of my comfort zone, I feel like I found it.”
