Ariana Grande Scores 1st US Chart-Topper As ‘Thank U, Next’ Debuts At #1

Published: Monday 12th Nov 2018 by Sam

Ariana Grande has proven that dashing tradition to the side has its rewards.

For despite being in the thick of promotion for current album ‘Sweetener,’ the singer hatched ‘Thank U, Next’ – a butter-smooth jam (not featured on the LP). Lyrically it  addresses her relationship with exes such as Mac Miller and Pete Davidson.

An immediate fan magnet, the track exploded on both streaming and retail formats – landing Ari her first ever #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Full story below…

Despite clocking just six tracking days, ‘Thank U’ amassed a colossal 55.1 million streams, 81,000 digital downloads, and a multi-format radio audience of 11.3 million.

The feat sees the 25-year-old score the first #1 female debut on the Hot 100 since Adele’s ‘Hello’ in 2015.

Prior to ‘Thank U, Next,’ the highest height the songbird has soared to on the tally was #2 with ‘Problem’ in 2016.

Expressing gratitude ahead of the formal reveal of the chart, Grande took to Twitter to say:

Aptly, it was announced last week that she has been named Billboard’s Woman Of The Year.

      Right… 100 Hot 100 entries and still no #1 hit for Nicki. While 45 of them peaked below the top 50. lol

    • Rasputia Latimore Is ANNOYED by GUTTER TRASH F.AGGOT ‘JasMAN Da Bi Asian’ Talking to her every day! November 12, 2018

      Ariana is 25 years old. Onika is 36 years old. The ONLY black women over 30 that can chart at number 1 album or single is Beyonce and Rihanna. PERIOD. Stop trying to make FETCH happen cause it aint with this current generation and the numbing songs played on the radio.

    This song sounds like an album track. But congrats to her.

      So do all Mariah’s new songs that you keep deeming “really good” so I don’t see the difference ??‍♀️

      • No name needed November 12, 2018

        So when did “album tracks” become bad songs?
        A pointless attempt to shade Mariah Jasmine Da Asian Sasquatch

        @NoName look I’m sorry that you’re so jealous of me but I can’t help it that Mariah’s new songs are as inconsistent as her voice
