Ariana Grande has done it…again.
She’s officially nabbed another UK chart-topper and this time it’s with newest release ‘7 Rings.’
The vocal supernova unleashed the infectious cut (alongside its video) last Friday and after a full tracking week has seen the song premiere at #1 on the Official UK Singles Chart. It marks the songbird’s fourth time atop of the coveted count.
Issued as the latest taste of forthcoming album ‘Thank U, Next’ (which arrives February 8th), the track amassed combined sales of 126,000.
Cementing the singer’s status as leader of the current streaming scene, ‘7’s success is powered largely by online, on-demand plays. For, of its total sales, just 15,000 were accrued from digital downloads. The remaining was tallied up from its 16.9 million streams. A figure which set a new UK chart record for the most streams of a song in a single week.
But that’s not all! Get into a number of notable stats about ‘7 Rings’:
- it earns the honour of being Grande’s highest sales debut in the UK, after besting the 113k of ‘Problem.’
- it’s the second time Grande has scored two #1’s from the same album; the first being ‘Problem’ and ‘Bang Bang’ (from 2014’s ‘My Everything’), and once again with ‘7 Rings’ and ‘Thank U, Next’ from the latter’s like-titled LP.
- ‘7 Rings’ becomes the first single to score over 100,000 combined sales in a week since June 2017.
Suffice to say, all points to the potency of Ari’s popularity at present and sets up her album campaign exquisitely.
*squawk* *squawk* It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s…the culture vulture *squawk* *squawk*
Damn, People just be listening to anything.
Right like wtf now if it was any other single okay but this one??! Like damn who tf listening to this and yet blacks who have been making this sound and trap music ain’t seeing half the success of this
EXACTLY. What’s funny is that her stans’ excuse for why she was accused of stealing from so many people is that the beat and the flow is so basic and generic and everyone has done it. But if it’s so basic and has been done so many times, why is it being hyped like this?? Why didn’t all the black artists who’ve made this exact type of song, not get the same attention? That just tells you that these white people are buying this trash JUST because it’s from Ariana and nothing else. White privilege at its finest.
no shade, as much as I now like & pay attention to Ariana Grande, topping the UK charts is no big feat. honestly.
The UK charts are a joke. Thank you, NEXT!
This guy is from the UK and I agree but looking at the state of music n the sat 5 years in nit surprised anymore with trashy music lacking longevity it’s now songs that you forget a few months later rather than a song you listen to over yes and decades later nowadays I’m lucky I I can like five songs in a year
I’m going to pass on this…
What a load of trash.
She gets more tan with each album she releases… she started out looking like Taylor Swift with a ponytail, now she’s damn near Beyoncé and Rihanna’s complexion ?. Forget 7 rings, how about 7 complexions?? Anything to top the charts, I guess.
All these hit singles but cannot move albums like Taylor, Beyoncé, Rihanna or Adele…SMDH
Thank U Next was good, Imagine was bad, & 7rings is trrrible.
