Ariana Grande is currently riding the highest wave of her career to date and it looks like she’s about to scale to higher heights.
The past week saw the songbird hatch new album ‘Thank U, Next.’
And while the project arrives just six months after its predecessor ‘Sweetener,’ it doesn’t seem like the masses have Ari fatigue. Quite the contrary.
Because, the LP – which has yielded two #1 singles already – is topping earlier sales forecasts.
While initial predictions had the album on course for a debut with numbers between 270,000-300,000, they’ve now been revised upwards.
Here’s what they look like now:

Driven by colossal streams, it’s clear that Ms. Grande is on course for a major opening.
Should the numbers hold, it’ll mark the biggest first week bow for any album since Lil Wayne‘s ‘Tha Carter V’ – which opened with 480k last October.
