"Knew Better Part Two" or "Knew Better Pt. II" is the extended and reprised version of "Knew Better" that was posted by Ariana Grande on her SoundCloud account.

Background Edit

On July 31, 2016, Ariana confirmed that she wanted to extend "Knew Better" and Tommy Brown was working on it. In August 2016, Ariana confirmed that she would be extending Knew Better to be performed on her Dangerous Woman Tour.

On September 15, 2016, Grande posted the track on her SoundCloud account with a custom cover in black and white, a recurring theme used on Ariana's first three albums.

Trivia Edit

  • Billboard labeled this song as a "three steps away to be a diss track" for Big Sean with the help of then-boyfriend, Mac Miller.
  • Instead of the beat used in the original version, Ariana used the beat in this version on the Dangerous Woman Tour.



Lyrics Edit

[Verse]
Say you could turn me on
Boy, but that's about it
You can say what you wanna
But I wouldn't believe it
You could write all them songs
That's the game that you play
Tryna right all them wrongs
But you can't make me stay

[Pre-Chorus]
Cause I, see right through you, boy
And I (I), ain't feeling you no more
(I ain't feeling you no more, ain't feeling you no more)

[Chorus]
If you knew better
Boy, you would do better
Can't nobody love you like I do
Baby, I could do better
Boy, if you knew better
You would do better
Baby, if you love me like I love you
Maybe we could be together

[Post-Chorus]
Cause ain't nobody like me (Ain't nobody like me)
Ain't nobody like me (Ain't nobody like me)
Ain't nobody like me
Ain't nobody like me, ayy
Ain't nobody like me
Ain't nobody like me
Ain't nobody like me
Ain't nobody like me, baby

[Bridge]
Make a mistake, you better learn from it
Play with tea, you get burned from it
My daddy always told me if he makes you cry
He ain't the one you better run from him
He used to get to me mentally
I don't fuck with your energy
If you knew better, you would do better
But you don't know shit, so I'll do better
Got a new 'do, and some new shoes
Just to go with my new boo
Loving me like he used to
And I ain't even worried bout it this time (This time)
I know he gon' be the one to treat me just right (Just right)
Never had a motherfucker this tight (Sheesh)
So baby, this is what your soulmate looks like
I look good, right? Damn

[Chorus]
If you knew better
Boy, you would do better (Ah)
Can't nobody love you like I do (Can't nobody love you like I do)
Baby, I could do better (Baby, I could do better)
Boy, if you knew better (If you knew)
You would do better
Baby, if you love me like I love you (Love me like I love you)
Maybe we could be together

[Post-Chorus]
Cause ain't nobody like me (Ain't nobody like me) (Ain't nobody like me)
Ain't nobody like me (Ain't nobody like me) (Ain't nobody like me)
Ain't nobody like me
Ain't nobody like me, ayy (Ain't nobody like me)
Ain't nobody like me (Sheesh)
Ain't nobody like me (Ain't nobody like me)
Ain't nobody like me
Ain't nobody like me, baby (Hey, hey)

[Outro]
Ain't nobody like me, ah
Ain't nobody like me, me
Ain't nobody like me, ayy

[Verse 1]
Say you could turn me on

[Pre-Chorus]
Cause I, see right through you, boy
And I (I), ain't feeling you no more
(I ain't feeling you no more, ain't feeling you no more)

[Chorus]
If you knew better
Boy, you would do better
Can't nobody love you like I do
Baby, I could do better
Boy, if you knew better
You would do better
Baby, if you love me like I love you
Maybe we could be together

[Post-Chorus]
Cause ain't nobody like me (Ain't nobody like me)
Ain't nobody like me (Ain't nobody like me)
Ain't nobody like me
Ain't nobody like me, ayy
Ain't nobody like me
Ain't nobody like me
Ain't nobody like me
Ain't nobody like me, baby

[Verse 2]
Make a mistake, you better learn from it
Play with tea, you get burned from it
My daddy always told me if he makes you cry, he ain't the one you better run from him
He used to get to me mentally
I don't f*** with your energy
If you knew better, you would do better
But you don't know sh**, so I'll do better
Got a new 'do, and some new shoes
Just to go with my new boo
Loving me like he used to
And I ain't even worried bout it this time (This time)
I know he gon' be the one to treat me just right (Just right)
Never had a motherf***** this tight (Sheesh)
So baby, this is what your soulmate looks like
I look good, right? Damn

You would do better
Baby, if you love me like I love you (Love me like I love you)
Maybe we could be together

[Post-Chorus]
Cause ain't nobody like me (Ain't nobody like me) (Ain't nobody like me)

Ain't nobody like me, baby (Hey, hey)

[Outro]
Ain't nobody like me, ah
Ain't nobody like me, me
Ain't nobody like me, ayy
