Ariana Grande Makes First Billboard Social 50 Entry / Covers Mariah Carey Classic

Published: Sunday 4th Aug 2013 by David

….and Ariana Grande‘s rise to the top continues!

Days after altering her ‘Yours Truly’ album cover following intense criticism from fans and critics alike, Ariana Grande continues to give many a Pop belle a run for her money with a sweet ascent to Billboard’s Social 50.

In need of a chart fix?

We’re waiting for you below…

Thanks to the hype fuelled by ‘Baby I‘s release, the Pop Princess soars straight into the chart’s Top Ten, now perched at #8!

Not sure how the Social 50 works?

Well, each weeks sees Billboard tally the amount of social media Friends and Followers, streams and website views each act scores, ranking them in order of dominance.

This week, as Ariana’s buzz grows louder she makes her first entry on the tally, which has seen Rihanna hold the record for spending the most weeks (21) at #1.

In adding to her win, Grande watches ‘I’ debut with 141,000 units in its release week, months after her debut single ‘The Way’ came in 219,000 units. In doing this, she becomes the first female act to score two or more Top Ten debut singles on the Digital songs chart!

Ariana’s continued winning streak comes month after she took on Mariah Carey‘s Christmas classic ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ last year.

How did she fare?

      I give her 2 years. Overrated much?

      Also, this Mariah tribute/comparaison is wack… When will people understand that there won’t be any NEXT Mariah Carey? Just like there wont be another Whitney or MJ….

    • B****** ARE A MESS August 4, 2013

      This b**** is avearge is def overrated! I just can’t!!

  2. Mimi Carey August 4, 2013

    Basic imo

  3. POP ROYALTY (F*** Yeah Rihanna) August 4, 2013

    Good Job.

    But get an Identity please, the whole “tributing mariah carey” is so 2008, you don’t wanna be stucking up somewhere confused about your career a la “leona lewis”. 🙄

    • Grande The Way August 4, 2013

      When was the last time you’ve seen Leona compared to Mariah? She is her own artist. Ironically the only ones I see compare her to Mariah are lambs.

      • stephy the lambily August 4, 2013

        Well, b**** you must be blind ass hell. I’ve seen old people (My Grandmother), people on Yahoo, Google, Youtube, Facebook & twitter (who are not Mimi fans) Comparing her to Mariah Carey. She steals Mariahs signature whisper vocal style. Ariana did not sing like this during her youtube days. No all of a sudden she wanna sing Mariah Carey add libs BYE GURL

    • BITCHPLEASEEEEE August 4, 2013

      @POP… F****** CO-SIGN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. cake like lady gaga August 4, 2013

    LOL Billboard has time to waste though, Social 50??? Who gives a fvck about “Social 50”?

    • FrenchLourson August 4, 2013

      And you’ll be the first bragging about Gaga having a single in the social 50, if it ever happens though…

  5. Brazilian Beyonce!!! August 4, 2013

    She’s gorgeous tbh.. Congratulations to her tho

  6. Mark111 August 4, 2013

    It’s funny that the only people who is mad are the Mariah’s lamas. They’re the best fan base to laugh at, lol.

  7. Jared (White Troll) August 4, 2013

    • dee August 4, 2013

      Agreed…. very basic and somewhat nasally.

    • ebonyking August 4, 2013

      Who’s daddy haha?

    • Grande The Way August 4, 2013

      A Gaga fan calling someone basic. How ironic.

  12. Grande The Way August 4, 2013

    Congrats to Ariana I guess. The Social 50 chart is pretty much useless but ok.

  13. Kay August 4, 2013


  14. ♪►Muzzac◄♪ August 4, 2013


  15. No not even. August 4, 2013

    Nah y’all Gaga addicts need to get your ears checked. Like seriously, turn the volume down when your playin on the computr cause I think it’s giving you hearing damage. She is most certainly not nasally.

  16. Demistan August 4, 2013

    What a w****!

  17. alessandro August 4, 2013

    this young lady can really sing

  18. B****** ARE A MESS August 4, 2013

    Fake ass b****…Have a seat! Can’t stand her, She is so damn phoney!!

  19. Head C*** IN Charge August 4, 2013

    Ariana can sing. I won’t call her overrated or overexposed because she doing what she can to make it in this industry. hell gaga, beyonce, rihanna, Katy Perry, and Nicki Minaj be everywhere YEAR ROUND even when they don’t have a project coming out. and this is coming from a Rih stan

  20. MRDIVABITCH August 4, 2013

    She is a little s***
    I’m offended that people are comparing her to Mariah

  21. S August 5, 2013

    Now everyone, I hate to burst your bubbles, but Ariana is definitely better than most “artists” these days.

  22. Sonia August 5, 2013

    Why do people keep going hard on her because she sounds like mariah , saying she wants to be the next Mariah. I doubt that is her intention, if you are not a singer you will not understand .. As a singer I know what happens when your growing up and you take particular liking to a specific singer 9 times out of 10 you will grow up sounding just like them .. I am the biggest Aaliyah fan ever and when I sing her music people think Im trying to be her and thats not the case , I just listen to her so much that now my voice is similar to hers .. just like if you listen to R&B singer Jaheim , he sounds similar to Luther Vandross , because he was all he listened to growing up .. and FYI Ariana sounds sooo much better than most singers in her age group.
