In the wake of the tragic deaths of both Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, singer Victoria Monet duets with fellow singer Ariana Grande on the single, “Better Days” and it is produced by Flip.
Monet premiered the single on her Instagram, where she wrote:
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 ♩
Grande called for love and unity and sent her prayers to the families of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and the slain police officers in Dallas.

We send our condolences to both the Sterling Family & the Castile Family
