Ariana and Victoria have responded to the recent police-involved shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile as well as the death of five police officers at a Dallas protest.
Their duet entitled 'Better Days' is an optimistic response to the violence, Monet commented on the song's Soundcloud page that "I'm also sad at how numb some of us are to it, because it is far too common! This is not a video game or a movie you're witnessing on your screens! This is out unfortunate reality. When I think about how I feel, the word confused comes to mind...So today we just want to try and help in one of the ways we know how!".
Both the singers then commented "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 you can not fight hate with hate, only love. Just as we can not fight darkness with more darkness. Only light"
