For all of those who’ve been teased; picked on; bullied, you may be able to find a little bit of strength in this tune. While we’re all patiently waiting for Ariana Grande‘s upcoming album, Mika‘s single, “Popular Song,” just debuted featuring the Victorious star. It discusses a tortured upbringing at school, but ends on a much happier note.

Ariana says on Instagram, “My first feature!! Everybody please check out Popular Song on iTunes. Honored to be on a record with Mika, I love and respect him so much! Hope u enjoy” and includes the link to purchase the Mika track. Get your first listen above and make sure to read the inspiring lyrics!

You were the popular one, the popular chick
It is what it is, now I’m popular ish
Standing on the field with your pretty pompoms
Now you’re working at the movie selling popular corn
I could have been a mess, but I never went wrong
’cause I’m putting down my story in a popular song

Ooh, said I’m putting down my story in a popular song

My problem, I never was a model,
I never was a scholar,
But you were always popular

You were singing, all the songs I don’t know
Now you’re in the front row
’cause my song is popular

Popular, I know about popular
It’s not about who you are or your fancy car
You’re only ever who you were
Popular, I know about popular
And all that you have to do is be true to you,
That’s all you ever need to know

Catch up, cause you got an awful long way to go
Catch up, cause you got an awful long way to go

I was on the lookout for someone to hate
Picking on me like a dinner plate
You hid during classes and in between them
Dunk me in the toilet, now it’s you cleans ‘em
You tried to make me feel bad with the things you do
It ain’t so funny when the joke’s on you
Ooh, the joke’s on you
Got everyone laughing, got everyone clapping, asking

“How come you look so cool?”
’cause that’s the only thing that I learned at school, boy
I say that’s the only thing I’ve learned at school

My problem, I never was a model,
I never was a scholar,
But you were always popular

You were singing all the songs I don’t know
Now you’re in the front row
’cause my song is popular

Popular, I know about popular
It’s not about who you are or your fancy car
You’re only ever who you were
Popular, I know about popular
And all that you have to do, is be true to you,
that’s all you ever need to know

Catch up, cause you got an awful long way to go
Catch up, cause you got an awful long way to go
