As we previously reported, ‘No Tears Left To Cry’ – the first single from Ariana Grande‘s fourth album, ‘Sweetener’ – has certainly come as some well received ear candy for the diva’s legion of dedicated fans (affectionately called #Arianators).
Need proof? Look no further than the tune’s impressive first week commercial performance. Netting a whopping 36.9 million US streams and 100,000 digital downloads, the out of the box success led it straight to a top 5 debut on the Hot 100.
The chart premiere is accompanied with two equally impressive historic feats: 1) she tied Rihanna and Lady Gaga for sixth place among all acts for the most top 10 debuts and 2) she earned the distinct honor of being the first artist to debut in the Hot 100’s top 10 with the first singles from each of his or her first four albums. Simply put: every lead single from each of her albums has debuted in the Hot 100’s top 10.
Note: This achievement is NOT to be confused with artists who have earned top 10 singles at some point from each of their first few albums (i.e. Rihanna, Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, etc.).
While we extend our congratz to the 24-year-old, tuck in to see who joins her in the top 25 on this week’s ‘TGJ Chart Check: Hot 100’ edition:
