There are many ways to “win” and Ariana Grande is ticking them all with new single ‘Problem (ft. Iggy Azalea)’.
The high-octane cut, which is lifted from the starlet’s upcoming sophomore album (due this Summer), rocketed to the top of the iTunes tally upon release yesterday. In the process, the Max Martin creation has broken a major record.
Details after the jump…
Writing on Twitter, 20-year-old Grande announced to her 15 million followers:
loves u broke a record! Problem is now the fastest song to ever climb to no 1 on @iTunesmusic only 37 minutes u are the most amazing

Naturally, there’ll be many who will scrutinise the achievement due to the song being available for pre-order. Especially, as it sprung to the top largely based on automatic downloads of those purchases. However, the fact remains: the demand is clearly there, as is the widespread love for the sure-fire Summer anthem.
Congrats Ms. Grande!
