Get Well Soon (song)

"Get Well Soon" is a song by American singer Ariana Grande, who co-wrote the song with its producer Pharrell Williams. It is the final track on Grande's fourth studio album Sweetener, it is inspired by Grande's personal anxiety and trauma following the May 2017 terrorist attack after her concert in Manchester, United Kingdom. Following the European leg of Dangerous Woman Tour and the terrorist attack at Manchester show, Grande had "really wild dizzy spells, this feeling like I couldn't breathe", she "felt so upside down." And her anxiety became physical. She shared her experience with whom she created the song. In a interview for Paper, Grande said: " kind of forced it out of me, because I was in a bad place mentally.... was like,'You have to write about it. You need to make this into music and get this shit out, I promise it will heal you.' And it helped." She said that the song is "probably one of the most important songs write." Grande revealed in an interview on Beats 1 Radio that she intended the song to offer a "musical hug".

She further explained that "Get Well Soon" is about "being there for each other and helping each other through scary times and anxiety" and about "personal demons and anxiety and more intimate tragedies as well", stressing that mental health is important. Grande recorded "Get Well Soon" at Chalice Recording Studios in California. Pharrell Williams and Ariana Grande co-wrote the song, Williams produced it, it is a gospel ballad that runs for five minutes and twenty-two seconds. The singer's vocals are stacked; some listeners speculate the song, its length, are the date of the Manchester Arena bombing, which took place on May 22, 2017. Pitchfork editor Jillian Mapes called "Get Well Soon" a "career-defining moment" and praised it as "the sort of freeform, self-help soul ballad you’d maybe expect to round out a Beyoncé opus" and wrote: "Anyone who knows how gracefully Grande handled the horrific events at her Manchester show last year will recognize an graceful response to her own emotional aftermath in this song."

The Independent's Kate Solomon described the track as ambitious and said: "As a five-minute musical interpretation of the post-traumatic panic attacks Grande has suffered,'Get Well Soon' is not enjoyable to listen to but admirable in its honesty." Chris Willman described Grande's singing as florid and Neil McCormick wrote that she sounded like "a one-woman doo-wop combo". Grande performed for the first time the song while on her promotional tour The Sweetener Sessions, she performed it in the special Ariana Grande at the BBC. During the Sweetener World Tour, she omitted it from the setlist because according to her, the song is not designed to be performed in a big concert and instead just for small venues like The Sweetener Sessions. However, starting with the show in Phoenix on May 14, 2019, "Goodnight n Go" was removed and a shortened version of "Get Well Soon" replaced it.

Jacob Hite

Jacob Hite was one of the wealthiest men in what is now Berkeley County, West Virginia. Hite had come to the Valley with his father in the early 1730s. A prominent family, Hite had served as sheriff twice for Frederick County and as justice of the peace for that county as well as Berkeley, his son, was a member of the House of Burgesses. Hite is most famous for his assault on the Martinsburg county jail in April 1774 and his rivalry with Adam Stephen, he was the son of a successful Shenandoah Valley land speculator, Jost Hite, a German immigrant, Anna Maria Hite, both of Bonfeld, Duchy of Wurttemburg. His sister, Magdalena Chrisman, is an ancestor to Major League Baseball pitcher Tug McGraw and country music star Tim McGraw. In the late 1760s, Hite and his business partner, Richard Pearis, created a scheme to obtain a large tract of land from Cherokee Indians, using Pearis' son, half-Cherokee, as a pawn. Cherokee headmen viewed men like George Pearis as useful diplomatic bridges to the British.

George obtained a 150,000-acre tract of land just west of South Carolina from the headmen. He sold it to his father and Hite. Though the scheme was clever, a British official feared it may provoke the Cherokees to join an anti-British confederation Indian diplomats were forming at the time; the official persuaded a South Carolina court to void the deal. The voided deed to the Cherokee land left Hite in serious financial trauma, he had no means of paying a large debt that he owed to a Scottish trader. Hunter was feeling pressure from his own creditors in England and demanded Berkeley County sheriff Adam Stephen to auction off enough of Hite's estate to pay the debt. Stephen and several deputies went to Hite's plantation and seized fifteen of Hite's slaves and twenty-one of his horses, brought them to the county jail in Martinsburg-the county seat-to be put up for auction. Pennsylvania Chronicle, Sep 26—Oct 3, 1772:152, advertisement: On Thursday, the 15th of October next, will be sold by Public Vendue, on the premises A valuable tract of land, containing 3118 Acres with the dwelling-house and buildings thereon erected, situate in Berkeley County, within 13 miles of Winchester, on the great road leading thence from Shweringan's Ferry.

The said tract is well watered and improved, being the plantation whereon the said Jacob Hite now lives, from its situation, other great improvements and advantages, is esteemed equal to any place in Frederick County.--Also, twenty-seven valuable Negro Slaves. Hite vigorously resented his property being taken in this manner, he wrote to his neighbor and friend Horatio Gates that the sale was to take place and threatened to stop it or sue any man who bought his property. The threat was accompanied by the more peaceful, though contradictory, suggestion that Gates and other friends of Hite's buy the property at the sale and Hite would pay them back. Gates, used a more direct way to aid Hite. Acting in his authority as a magistrate, Gates allowed Hite to proceed against those persons who were "active in plundering him."Hite decided to take matters into his own hands. A friend of Hite's, the constable, Daniel Hendricks, assembled a posse, including Hite's son Thomas; the posse armed themselves with several weapons and advanced on the Martinsburg jail on April 14, 1774.

Sheriff Stephen directed them to guard Hite's slaves and horses. But the gang surrounded the jail, overpowered the guards, tied up the jailor, who refused to turn over the keys; the posse chopped down the jail door with axes and broke the lock on the stable door. The gang seized the slaves and horses, freed Marty Handley, a prisoner for debt, a runaway servant; the posse fled for Hite's house. In the day, Hite received word that Stephen's band was going to attack. Hite feared. Hite was concerned for his slaves, he did not want their families divided. Hite realized that he and his slaves had a common interest in not being sold, Hite needed more fighters. Hite proceeded into the kitchen where his slaves were and told them to follow the white men in the attack with whatever weapons they had, but the slaves never had to fight, as the attack was so delayed that Hite directed them south down the Great Wagon Road toward his illegal Cherokee property. Along the road, at least some of Hite's slaves were sold at auction.

In this regard, Hite epitomized the desperation that many Americans were feeling at this time in American history, as thousands of Americans were in serious financial trouble with their creditors as well. Seven members of Hite's posse were arrested for the assault. Before Gates and other justices of the peace, they were tried for breach of the peace but acquitted, though they had to go bond to guarantee their good behavior for twelve months; this made tempers flare more. Hite and his friends filed a court action against other officials. Stephen realized that he may become liable himself for a suit for recovery of the debt. Stephen received intervention from the General Court, which upheld the original judgment against Hite; the General Court refrained from any further decision however, because at this point the Virginia courts began to refuse to try suits brought by creditors against debtors, the upcoming American Revolution was just beginning. Although the legal battles were never resolved, the
