Hot 100: Ariana Grande Ties Mariah Carey Record With #1 Debut Of ‘Stuck With You’

Published: Monday 18th May 2020 by Sam

Ariana Grande has premiered atop of the Billboard Hot 100 and, in the process, has tied a Mariah Carey chart record.

Full story below…

Ari and Justin Bieber‘s ‘Stuck With You’ has opened at #1 on the coveted count, after what was initially billed as a fierce battle with Tekashi 6ix9ine (whose ‘GOOBA’ ironically starts at #3).

The feat sees the duo each make their third #1 debut on the Hot 100, joining Carey and Drake as the only artists with that many openings on the chart.

So what are the numbers saying?

Per Billboard, ‘Stuck’ was anything but that commercially, shifting a whopping 108,000 downloads, amassing 28.1 million US streams, and commanding a radio audience of 26.3 million.

The release also benefitted in earnest from a variety of bundle configurations

These included, but were not limited to, copies autographed by Grande and Bieber, cassettes, CDs and vinyl singles — each of which came with a digital download (which also counted).

As reported, proceeds from sales and streams of ‘Stuck’ partially benefit the First Responders Children’s Fund amid the coronavirus crisis.


It goes without saying that the bundling methods employed will no doubt spark ample debate. Especially after a similar approach was taken by Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj in the preceding week. That said, whichever way it’s diced or sliced, a #1 is a #1…ay.

    Ariana about to snatch that record once the song with Gaga drops.

    • Oh plz May 18, 2020

      Ohhhh puh-leeeeze. And who cares?? Mariah Legendary Wig-Snatching Carey has ONE ALBUM (1993’s “Music Box” for you ignorant children) that has SOLD more than the discographies of these two Scooter-Brain-Cabbage-Patch kids COMBINED – not to mention her several other multi-DIAMOND albums. Get at Ms. Unbothered Carey when these Disney’s Recess kids approach this feat.

      • Sonya Gibbons May 19, 2020

        Preach it!!! I agree. This song was soooo mediocre. Anyone could have made this. Mariah will always be “the one!” You can’t top Mariah Carey

      • Dominic Perri May 19, 2020

        Yess! Mariah is #1 #MariahCarey #LambForLife #Queen

  3. Rashad May 18, 2020

    Haha 69 has bot accounts slamming Billboards insta saying he should be #1. If that was the case shouldn’t he be #2 not 3? Regardless Ari and Bieber have huge fan bases, Stuck with U was #1 on iTunes all week and streaming couldn’t save that Goomba trash. It worked out as it should. 69 needs to be cancelled.

  4. URPOINT? May 18, 2020

    At this point throw the whole chart away.

    • Only Facts May 18, 2020

      Agreed. But I’m glad a disgusting pervert criminal didn’t get a number 1. He should be in prison for life

  5. Only Facts May 18, 2020

    The real kii is that scooter braun could’ve easily put Demi Lovato on this song as well. Why is 🛴 paying Demi dust? 🤣🤣😭😂🤣🤣 How long until she fired him and starts going off on him on another finsta?

    • POPS+Muva May 18, 2020

      Demi Lobato is annoying. anything that comes out her mouth annoys me

      • Haterz+Gon‘+Hate May 18, 2020

        Nobody is anticipating Demi on any duet. Ari is in her prime and guaranteed this songs success.

        I haven’t even listened to it but it’s for charity so I shall put my reading glasses away….. 🧐🧐🧐🧐

  6. Dc May 18, 2020

    Soo glad for 69 b**** ass 👏🏾👏🏾

    • POPS+Muva May 18, 2020

      yes yes yes

      • 2020 house music July 10, 2020

        so glad for this also

    A number one song nobody knows

    Back in the day, even a top 20 song, everybody knew the lyrics to the song.

    Nobody is gonna remember all these number one songs in the next 12 months, so what is the point

    • Pat May 18, 2020

      It used to be about getting the whole country to sing the same song. This generation’s artist it’s about whose Stan base can mobilize n manipulate The charts the best that week

    • PinotNoir May 18, 2020

      Today’s “singers” only care about $. Artistry, indelible lyrics, and and narrative-changing eras are trivial. McDonaldesque mass production for maximum financial gain. Had that anorexic Mimiclone had any sense, she’d do something about the rasp her fast weight loss added to her voice. Oh well…

  8. Clarks0o0ñ May 18, 2020

    Damn, I feel bad for megan thee stallion
    She was so close in getting a number one

    Now she’s falling.

    That’s the problem with beyonce songs.
    They are hot only for 1 or 2 week and after that everybody moves on. They die out.

    I’m still hopeful savage will hit number one when she drops a fire music video with beyonce.

    • Dc May 18, 2020

      Who cares she needs to put in her time looks like you were wrong 😂😂😂

      • PinotNoir May 18, 2020

        And the song is below average at best, too. Instant gratification has crept into newcomers wanting #1’s outta the fate. Mariah had exceptional vocals and lyrics that hit hard upon release. Emotions vs Savage? No comparison.

    • Dc May 18, 2020

      Get out of denial it will not go number 1 ha ha

    • Jam May 18, 2020

      We see eye to eye on this (for the most part).

      It still is tragic that Nicki stans are cheering after she got her first number one by being a feature on a remix for a new artist. They were THIRSTY and fought hard for number 1, versus Bey stans becoming more like Beyonce and not trying or caring it seems…

      I hope Megan can get a number 1 too, she deserves it. But eek.. at the Weekend pulling ahead already.

      • shimza da musiq datafilehost 2020 mixtape July 10, 2020

        this is awesome

  9. Only Facts May 18, 2020

    6ix9ine posted a video on insta saying billboard is lying 🤣😭😭😂😂😂 I’m done!

  10. Dc May 18, 2020

    Glad meg and bey didn’t go number 1 meg getting arrogant

    • Yeah okay May 18, 2020

      Are you a Judge?

  11. Clarks0o0ñ May 18, 2020

    Ariana cheated to get this number one

    6 credit cards bought 30k copies of her song.

    Bulk buying is wrong
    Billboard usually disqualified bulk buying.

    A charity single that was sent to pop radio (payola)

    A charity single that came with bundles

    A charity single that was discounted for 24 hours during the last day of chart tracking


    • NawNaw May 18, 2020

      Ari didn’t cheat. Scooter cheated.

      • Clarks0o0ñ May 18, 2020

        Scooter works for ari

  12. 1988 May 18, 2020

    Congrats! 🙂 Nothing like No. 1. 🙂

  13. James May 18, 2020

    Congrats to Ari on her 3rd #1 and JB on his 6th #1. I can now sleep tonight lol joking. Savage needs to go number 1 fingers crossed!!

    • PinotNoir May 18, 2020

      Tasha k said Bey regrets the rmx.

  14. PinotNoir May 18, 2020

    Told ya her ‘Mimicry’ ain’t over!


  15. Crayola May 18, 2020

    She can never top Mariahs record. At anything. Period.Mariahs track record was established prior to itunes. What a joke.

  16. JOHNVIDAL May 19, 2020

    It will fall off quickly. It´s not Fantasy or One Sweet Day LOL Justin Beiber is not the it talentless boy anymore either.

  17. Gurlbye May 19, 2020

    Chile I thought this blackfishing girl was starting to learn the meaning of overkill and overexposure…

  18. May 21, 2020

    Hey Ariana it’s me again
