New Song: Ariana Grande – ‘Be Alright’

Published: Friday 18th Mar 2016 by Sam

It’s here!

Ariana Grande follows the soaring live showing of new song ‘Be Alright’ on Saturday Night Live last week with the release of its studio incarnation today.

The euphoric anthem is lifted from ‘Dangerous Woman,’ her third studio album (due May 20th via Republic Records) and was released to iTunes moments ago.

Really, though. What are you waiting for? A bodacious bop awaits after the jump…

Come all the way through, Ariana!

Dipped in 90’s Dance, the track retains a Pop-coated soulfulness thanks to Grande’s impeccable vocal chops.

Laced with hooks and boasting a memorable melody, this has all the makings of a radio smash while still sounding fresh and authentically mature.

If there’s one drawback, it’s that we’re still waiting for the songbird to fully embrace her budding divadom. By that we mean show off vocally ala the 90’s sound it channels. A super-charged concoction of belts, runs, and whistles after the bridge would have been the cherry on top.

Still, the ‘Dangerous Woman’ album is easily shaping up to be one of our most anticipated of the year.

Your thoughts?

        Rich Harrison worked with Amerie on her first album but they did not explore the 70’s funk samples until after 2005 (I.e after Crazy In Love already dropped in 2003). 1 thing is a complete carbon copy of CIL, so Amerie is the one who copied it + Amerie was the one bowing down to Destiny’s Child and lipsyncing to Beyonce’s vocals on Lose My Breath. Come correct next time @Möldy-V*****!

      • Annalise March 18, 2016

        Your comment about ‘bitter blacks’ was so DISGUSTING that it got completely erased, so I’d advise you to keep that cöcksucker wired shut!

      • ♊Mølly♊ March 18, 2016

        Are you hailbeysus? I think not so please sit your attention seeking ass down. #ImAboveYou

      • Annalise March 18, 2016

        @Moldy-Vãgina Simmer Down Sir! Young Man, you were the one that was asking for my attention and approval, with your ‘Annalise is so right’ comment! 😆 You were the one that was begging the hive to leave you alone but you keep stalking to their comments. Man the fvck up!

  3. Formation is Rhythm Nation ’16 (Lana Del Fan) March 18, 2016

    But all shade aside, this song is lit. I liked her vogue performance she did on SNL.

    • ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? March 18, 2016

      It was great indeed, but I was a little upset as to how she had voguing choreography with no black male dancers. It just didn’t seem right and historically accurate to me. Yet, she still found a way to incorporate those white twins she has dancing for her, even though they were stiff with the choreography.

  4. Dev March 18, 2016

    Its a nice idea that doesn’t go anywhere. Considering the song is under 3 minutes it just plods along.
    When you think of 90’s dance songs the had fierce vocals, if you think of CeCe Peniston’s Finally or Kim Simms To Blind to See It the vocals match the pulsing beat, but this is just coasting.
    I would say nice try but go back to the studio and re record some of it

    • WordsWithSam March 18, 2016

      I like it but I agree with your criticism. It needed to go to another level before coming to a close.

  5. TT March 18, 2016

    Didn’t know Mariah had a new song

  6. ♊Molly♊ March 18, 2016

    She slays cant deny

  7. ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? March 18, 2016

    Alright! You know what? I’m buying tickets to give shows on her next tour. I don’t even care how expensive they’re gonna be. It’ll be her first $100,000,000 grossing Tour, anyway, so why not go all the way out for it with the support?

  8. Abel Minaj (Arianator Barb) March 18, 2016

    Ari…. i love everything you’re doing right now. This is exactly what i wanted from you. My Everything was too drenched in pop with not enough emphasis on the r&b but now I’m just loving that your voice is front and center again. Feels like Yours Truly (still a severely underrated gem from 2013)

    • ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? March 18, 2016

      You don’t like “Be My Baby”, “Why Try?” and “Adore”? Her pop songs are goodies, to be honest. You can’t go wrong with that voice.

  9. Barb-wire March 18, 2016

    Cute song, too bad it’ll flop just like Flopcus.

    • Reba McEntire stan March 18, 2016

      Shut the f*** up cake like lady Gaga/centurion/bill Cosby stan/barb-wire, no one even likes you and the barbz don’t claim you zlut. You’re as annoying and irrelevant as diabetes clearly bothered (by Rihanna)

      • Anonymous March 18, 2016

        Lmaoooo you better drag

  10. Barb-wire March 18, 2016

    Really @Arianator Barb? Lmao, you could’ve said all of this with your real account.

    • HailBeysus March 18, 2016

      Kii no lies told! I access TGJ from my phone. I get email notifications whenever someone leaves a reply on a TGJ post i’ve commented on. Whenever i see the gravator pic in the email i click it and it legit takes me to mrminaj93 who happens to be @ArianatorBarb Gravator account LMFAOOOO!!!

  11. Royalkev March 18, 2016

    I said it before, but I can’t stress it enough, Ariana is versatile! It’s hard to sound authentic on a POP, R&B and Dance cut. I’ve heard her take on all of it and I feel she nails it each time! She actually adds a little to genres I’m not so big on! I expect her upcoming album to be a really good listen!

  12. F March 18, 2016

    I like this new direction she’s taking, makes me wonder if her ex-manager was holding her back and giving too much attention to Justin Bieber

  13. Rihboy March 18, 2016

    I like this miles better than dangerous woman. Her upbeat songs always make me bop. Still sounds juvenile, but vocals make up for it. It should do well. It caters to kids as well as adults!!! I’m anxious now to see what else she is bringing.

  14. Dionne Warwick Stan March 18, 2016

    It could’ve been better. It falls flat after a while.

  15. Lea March 18, 2016

    Sorry but it’s time to switch labels and stop licking dougnuts…

  16. Lake Erie March 18, 2016

    Love this!!!!!

  17. oscar March 18, 2016

    this is boring…

  18. RihYonce March 18, 2016

    This song is ok! But she definitely slayed me with “Dangerous Woman” I’m in love with that song ! & the live performance on SNL was amazing

  19. Aguilera March 18, 2016

    The song has potential but it’s missing something.

  20. HailBeysus March 18, 2016

    DEATH @MOLDY V***** BEING CLOCKED AND DRAGGED BY HER PUBES FOR THE 92826262718172 time!!! Poordat she even fled the scene kiii!!!

  21. Rihboy March 18, 2016

    I think it’s just missing climaxes and a bridge. It’s the same steady sound throughout.

  22. Tran anti no honey love time but it okay girl March 20, 2016

    The song is ok
