In addition to Nicki in the previous post, Alicia Keys and Ariana Grande performed at the MTV EMAs in Glasgow, Scotland. Alicia did a lovely rendition of her new inspiring record “We Are Here” while Ariana launched into her mega-singles “Problem” & “Break Free”.
The Monday morning premiere is ready for Ariana Grande‘s new video for “Love Me Harder” — her next My Everything single and collaboration with The Weeknd. The latter does indeed appear in the Hannah Lux-directed visuals with dark tones and lighting setting the mood.
If you caught my post on the BTS, remember when I mentioned I was going to chuckle at the final product when the water scene came about? Yeah, that happened.
FWIW, these 2 for sure went official tonight.
One of Ariana’s successful collabs off her new album was with The Weeknd for “Love Me Harder”. This is sure to be another top 10 hit upon release of the upcoming video. So here’s a new BTS clip that shows the two meeting together briefly, but what’s funny and cool to me is the last scene with Ariana lying down and the crew making the water ripple off camera. Just looks hilarious to me and I will probably chuckle at that scene in the final product after having seen this.
Tonight was the season premiere of SNL and Chris Pratt kicked off as host and Ariana Grande as the musical guest. You knew she was going to perform current hit single “Break Free”, but for her second performance, she surprised with the first ever performance of “Love Me Harder” with The Weeknd. Both videos are below with an additional look at Ariana in a sketch as she made an appearance in ‘Alive Toys’ as well.

Live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas this weekend is the iHeart Radio Festival and a few of the top billing artists include the two above, Ariana Grande & Nicki Minaj, as well as Usher.
Full, official video of their sets are below with Ariana coming out for “Bang Bang” with Nicki before her set started. She also later brought out Childish Gambino for their My Everything album collab. And finally, Usher brought out Chris Brown for a little bit of “New Flame”. Looks like a dope festival… and it’s Vegas! Maybe next yr, amirite?
