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:
