We take you on a guided tour of the best, the good, and the quite good's of the week
Let’s cut to the chase here - Ariana Grande has released new music and yes, there’s a lot of really great music out today as well (which we will definitely get to) but for now all we can do is talk about ‘No Tears Left To Cry’ and that’s how it is.
Featured Song: Ariana Grande – No Tears Left To Cry
Ari absolutely trolled the who universe by having a song that starts as a ballad (for like, 3 seconds) and then evolves into the best pop song that this summer is going to see – unless she releases more new music this summer, that is. As she says in the song, she’s feeling a vibe… and we’re feeling a vibe too!
On a more serious note, if the response to the Manchester Attack is that we shouldn’t allow terror to make us live in fear…
Benji Hyer responds to listener Matthew about what the Commonwealth means to young people...
The Commonwealth of Nations, formerly known as the British Commonwealth, is an intergovernmental organisation of 53 member-states that are mostly former territories of the British Empire.
Currently, they are competing in the Commonwealth Games on the East Coast of Australia, and that is going ahead without any political commotion.

But, secondly, there is going to be a ton of amazing music to make a truly memorable weekend – including our very favourite Danielle Bradbery who, following the release of her sophomore album ‘I Don’t Believe We’ve Met’ last year and her stand-out performances at…

The Clean Conversations are our series of conversations exploring addiction and the ways it impacts our lives as young adults. The Clean Conversations are presented in partnership with Juno Dawson’s new book, “Clean”.
Award-winning author Juno Dawson has released a new book called 'Clean'. The book follows Lexi, a spoiled socialite who has hit rock bottom. After almost overdosing, her brother stages an intervention and takes her to a rehab clinic for troubled young people.
In the book, Lexi is addicted to drugs – but, addiction in any form is very common. For example, 50% of young people feel they are addicted to their mobile devices. Mobile phone addiction has been studied and is on the rise, with a new studio showing that addiction to phones and the internet is harming our minds – literally
