Chart Check: Ariana Grande Makes Hot 100 History With ‘7 Rings’

Published: Wednesday 30th Jan 2019 by Rashad

Ariana Grande‘s done it again!

After ringing in the new year atop the Hot 100 with the inaugural chart-topping single of her career, ‘thank u, next,’ the 25-year-old songstress barely gave fans time to say such before she released two singles to follow.  The non-performance of follow-up tune, ‘Imagine,’ came as no deterrence as this week brought with it news ‘7 Rings’ – the third single from her fifth album (also titled ‘thank u, next’) – debuted at #1 on the Hot 100 (click here for the full report).

As if being in Billboard history books for being the first and only artist to see the lead single from her first 5 albums debut in the top 10, now – with ‘7 Rings’ impressive premiere – Grande’s become the first artist in history to see her first two chart-toppers debut at #1.  In addition, she’s only the third female artist in history to see two singles debut at #1 on the tally (Mariah Carey – 3, Britney Spears – 2).

Congratz are due to Ari!  See who joins her in the top 25 this week on TGJ’s weekly ‘Chart Check: Hot 100’ edition:

    I don’t find the song to be enjoyable..??‍♂️

  2. Hmmm… January 30, 2019

    Huh? So the record is that she’s the first to have the only number 1s that she’s ever gotten, debut at number 1? Records are cool and everything but y’all bent over backwards to find a record. What are y’all gonna come up with next? “First artist to get a number 1 on the first Saturday of a leap year??” Weird flex but ok. ??

      She is the first artist to have her first Two #1s debut at #1

      That’s kinda a big deal. No Ariana Stan here but just saying

      It’s rare for anybody to debut at #1 in the hot 100 let alone for your first #1s to
      Do it

        Is it though? ? I mean, I get it. Congrats. But nothing can convince me that this is impressive for an female pop star. 2 number 1s at album number FIVE seems very…… mediocre. And when your first number 1s come that late in the game, them debuting at number 1 is bassically guaranteed. You’re less likely to debut at number 1 as a newer artist because you actually have to climb the charts, instead of being catipulted there by popularity.

      @Hmm – I agree.

      • King z January 31, 2019

        If it wasn’t impressive how is she the first and only to do

        Not arguing or trying to make it
        Seem like the record is groundbreaking, but it is impressive.

    I love me some payola for a trash record. Mmmwah. Hahaha

    • Lmfao_Hoe January 30, 2019

      Chile listen Payola is definitely at play cause this is pure bs. I would’ve expected this had she released more promo on Breathing but this s***?! Oh hell no they played themselves on this one

      • Blahzee January 31, 2019

        Soon as she jumped off Nicki’s a** she started getting number 1s

  4. Brent Christopher January 30, 2019
