New Music: Victoria Monét feat. Ariana Grande – ‘Better Days’
Jay Z, Chris Brown, Miguel, and Swizz Beatz have all used their music to speak out following the recent police shootings of black men. Now Ariana Grande and singer-songwriter Victoria Monét join forces on a new collaboration, which finds them hoping for “Better Days.”
“How we gonna stop the violence, stop the hurt, stop the hatred, stop the murder?” asks Ari. “We’re all human, that’s for certain / Come together, we deserve it.”
A video posted by Ariana Grande (@arianagrande) on Jul 9, 2016 at 1:33pm PDT
The song was accompanied by a note from Monét. “I’m heartbroken by all of the recent tragedies the came as a result of hatred, racism and injustice,” she wrote. “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 our 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!”
Ariana also called for love and unity and sent her prayers to the families of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and the slain police officers in Dallas. “During this challenging time, we have to remember that the only way we will progress is if the overruling force is #Love,” she said. “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.”

I dont know who is more trash, Fist Brown or his pathetic fans.
@Yuck: Get over it you are not Rihanna, they both moved on.
Interbreeding propaganda at its best. Musically = 0
Yesss finally, been waiting for this song for sooo long. Chris you’re sooooo hottt 😍😍😍😍
The only trash is the bored people who sit on her being negative! Take your bored ass somewhere and find a hobby! Chris Brown is amazing and the real reason you are mad is because he can still be successful after making mistakes. But don’t sit up here and attack his art! Lame.
Ariana and her constant left side. Annoying arrogant little shrimp she is
Lol @ Mariah Carey wannabe in this video.
I loved the song! Loved the vocals! Their voices complimented each other. Hope they do more together. Chris is able to a wide variety of music. He is talented. Also sounds like he’s beginning to figure things out personally as well. Ariana could be the next Mariah and I mean that as a compliment. Her voice is amazing..I got goose bumps listening to this song. Keep it up!
I hate Chris brown. Always have but I LOVE Ariana and I LOVEDthe music video and song . so PEERFECT. I LOVED LOVED IT.
Jews only will allow white girls to be with blacks.
RABBI RABINOVICH’S SPEECH OF JANUARY 12TH, 1952
A report from Europe carried the following speech of Rabbi Emmanuel Rabinovich before a special meeting of the Emergency Council of European Rabbis in Budapest, Hungary, January 12, 1952:
We will openly reveal our identity with the races of Asia and Africa. I can state with assurance that the last generation of white children is now being born. Our Control Commissions will, in the interests of peace and wiping out inter- racial tensions.
Forbid the Whites to mate with Whites. The White Women must cohabit with members of the dark races, the White Men with black women. Thus the White Race will disappear, for the mixing of the dark with the White means the end of the White Man, and our most dangerous enemy will become only a memory. We shall embark upon an era of ten thousand years of peace and plenty, the Pax Judaica, and our race will rule undisputed over the world. Our superior intelligence will easily enable us to retain mastery over a world of dark peoples.
Question from the gathering: Rabbi Rabinovich, what about the various religions after the Third World War?
Rabinovich: There will be no more religions. Not only would the existence of a priest class remain a constant danger to our rule, but belief in an after-life would give spiritual strength to irreconcilable elements in many countries, and enable them to resist us. We will, however, retain the rituals and customs of Judaism as the mark of our hereditary ruling caste, strengthening our racial laws so that no Jew will be allowed to marry outside our race, nor will any stranger be accepted by us. (Note: Protocol of Zion No. 17 para. 2, states: ‘Now that freedom of conscience has been declared everywhere (as a result of their efforts they have previously stated) only years divide us from the moment of the complete wrecking of that [Hated] Christian Religion. As to other religions, we shall have still less difficulty with them.’)
We may have to repeat the grim days of World War II, when we were forced to let the Hitlerite bandits sacrifice some of our people, in order that we may have adequate documentation and witnesses to legally justify our trial and execution of the leaders of America and Russia as war criminals, after we have dictated the peace. I am sure you will need little preparation for such a duty, for sacrifice has always been the watchword of our people, and the death of a few thousand lesser Jews in exchange for world leadership is indeed a small price to pay. To convince you of the certainty of that leadership, let me point out to you how we have turned all of the inventions of the White Man into weapons against him. His printing presses and Radios are the mouthpieces of our desires, and his heavy industry manufactures the instruments which he sends out to arm Asia and Africa against him.
Our interests in Washington are greatly extending the Point Four Program (viz. Colombo Plan) for developing industry in backward areas of the world, so that after the industrial plants and cities of Europe and America are destroyed by atomic warfare, the Whites can offer no resistance against the large masses of the dark races, who will maintain an unchallenged technological superiority. And so, with the vision of world victory before you, go back to your countries and intensify your good work, until that approaching day when Israeli will reveal herself in all her glorious destiny as the Light of the World.” (Note: Every statement made by Rabinovich is based on agenda contained in the “Protocols of Zion.”)
that chorus is Everything. that being said, i deleted her cd, zzzzzz. and her personality does no favors.
@Please: He is a woman beating d-bag. Have you seen the pics of her beaten face? It’s not excusable, simple as that. That big parts of the public are willing to “forget” and forgive is very unfortunate for our society. He’s a sick bastard who won’t change… which can be seen by many reports about assaults and bar brawls.
WOW seems you think you are God and can Judge people. Get lost Trash! Go stalk RIh and her stripper pics!
Bleh, boring ass song and video…..
Is that girl on drugs or something?
ewwww ariana don`t touch that trash
Good job Chris and Ariana.
omg sooo lame and boring and these two retards can`t act,that`s for sure
I agree completely .
@Deb: Another one of Ariana’s PR people?
@TX: I don’t mind Chris at all, I’ve always liked his music. It’s her and her arrogant, rich, spoiled attitude that I can’t stand.
OMG here are they, the woman beater violent trash stans. I dont know who is more pathetic Fist Brown or his stans who would excuse everything what he does. Fist Brown could kill somebody and his pathetic stans would be “He made a mistake, he is only human.” people like you are even worse than your disgusting violent fave. Remember when girls went to twitter to write “I dont know Rihannas problem, Chris could beat me anytime”. Thats exactly how disgusting you all are. And then come to every Rihanna thread just to bash her, just shows how low you all are.
OMG i dont know what is worse the song or the video. What a cheap mess.
@Fist Brown stans r disgusting: Chris brown fans come from several different age groups . The statement about beating shows how ignorant some teenagers are about domestic violence .Your insults won’t change a thing . I am a fan and I am not a teenager . I also didn’t agree with what he did to Rihanna .However, I have lived long enough to know people can change for the better and be redeemed . He also has to work for a living and I doubt you want any of your taxes taking care of him .
@Dee Dee:So you lived that long and in the end you’re just as mature as his teenage fans?! Your a grown up on a comment section defending a violent musician?! Wow the only thing thats showing is that you’re as mature as his teenage fangirls. Nothing else. The DV case was 5 years ago, after that he was in a ton of brawls. But you decide to ignore that, while writing about changes for the better. He says he changed since 5 years, but the next moment it doesnt go his way he throws a temper tantrum. Its so sad that grown women like you defend Chris Brown and suport him financially, while he keeps disrespecting every woman in his life, including his own mother. Just hope for all people around him that you will be right about him one day.
Will Ariana ever come out with a song that doesn’t feature someone? Boring and overrated.
Why are you living in the past? Move on, people do make mistakes and are only human. I am sure you have done some messed up stuff in your life that you are not proud of. I am sure someone has forgiven you for something horrible you have done or maybe not since you are a perfect human being.
@Dee Dee:age dont equals mature
There are no tons of brawls . I can only recall the two that involved Drake and an incident with Frank Ocean over a parking space . There were no charges brought against anyone and it wasn’t completely clear who was at fault .Speculating about things are not facts . That mainly what the media does when it comes to celebrities . You should know better than to believe everything the media put on their websites, newspapers, and magazines about celebrities . They can be very bias and their main goal is make money. You seem to hate this young man. That’s why your negative venom can’t be controlled and not allow him to move on from the mistakes he has made . The demonizing will continue from you and others regardless of whether he’s trying to change or not .
@WakeUpPeople: You should wake up. Yes everybody makes mistake,but its different if you make mistakes and the only person you hurt is yourself than making mistakes like Chris Brown and the people you hurt are always others. He even threw a stone to his mother. Who does that?! He lives from the money of women,yes women are his fanbase and exactly this women constantly overlook how he has no respect for women and keeps disrespecting them. Keep giving this fake man your money, but dont expect all women to be that blind.
@Dee Dee: You’re a typical Chris Brown stan, you will lie for him in any way possible, but lying for him will not help him in court. There were not only two “incidents”, how you call it. Funny how you put his violent behaviour in such a word. He even said he’s guilty for his last recorded violent outburst in DC. Keep on lying for him, his actions will always speak louder than any lie his pathetic stans will make for him. A man whos biggest enemy is the truth needs people like you.
@Dee Dee: Says the grown up woman defending a woman beater on a gossip site LOOOOOOL :)
To all the haters We love chris and nothing you CAN say Will change That fact . You get it . And by the way l m not a teenager l m married with a lovely girl and an adorable husband and l m a strong woman .
You re shocked …… Well l don t give a f……. Deal with it .
It amazes me how you people seem to forget what he did. He’s a women beating piece of sh*t and no that’s not something you can forgive. It’s something you shouldn’t forgive. it’s making me sick hearing you go on and on about how cool he is and how everyone makes mistakes. it’s pathetic and i fear for the future if you’re willing to forgive it. He should have been thrown out of the music business for what he did and this chick he’s singing with is a f*cking moron if she’s allowing herself to associate with him.
