Chart Check [Hot 100]: Ariana Grande Charts EVERY SONG From New ‘Positions’ Album Simultaneously

Published: Tuesday 10th Nov 2020 by Rashad

It’s pretty safe to say Ariana Grande is having the best week ever.

The GRAMMY winner, whose latest album ‘Positions’ came with barely two weeks notice, took no one by surprise when it topped the Billboard 200 – marking the fifth time she’s reigned over the tally in her short career.

Just as unsurprising, every track that lines Grande’s newest project made a grand entrance on the refreshed Hot 100 as she’s listed 14 times across the chart’s 100 positions (5 times in the top 40 alone).

Led by last week’s #1 hit, ‘Positions’ (the song), Ari is responsible for this week’s top debuts (her historic 18th top 10 as we reported here) and more.

Details inside:


“Charting 14 songs on the Hot 100 simultaneously marks a new personal best for Grande. She previously logged as many as 12 when her last LP, Thank U, Next, opened atop the Billboard 200 dated Feb. 23, 2019.

Grande’s career Hot 100 count jumps to 66 entries, the fourth-most among women, after Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj (113 each) and Aretha Franklin (73). (Drake outpaces all artists with 228 appearances.)

Here’s a full rundown of Grande’s 14 songs on the Hot 100 (all of which are debuts except for “Positions”):

Rank, Title
No. 2, “Positions”
No. 8, “34+35”
No. 32, “Motive,” feat. Doja Cat
No. 35, “Off the Table,” feat. The Weeknd
No. 40, “POV”
No. 43, “Just Like Magic”
No. 47, “Shut Up”
No. 49, “Nasty”
No. 52, “Safety Net,” feat. Ty Dolla $ign
No. 63, “Six Thirty”
No. 65, “My Hair”
No. 70, “Obvious”
No. 71, “West Side”
No. 75, “Love Language”‘


The amazing feat puts him in the company of serial hitmakers The Weeknd, Taylor Swift, J. Cole, Beyonce, Drake, Justin Bieber, and more – all of whom have placed all of the content from one or more of their respective albums on to the Hot 100.

    Duh 🙄 thanks to streams that are basically free. No hate but I can’t nor will act like these are historic achievements the Legends had to do with real competition – Quality, Musicians, Vocalists, Songwriters etc all while reaching pure sells not payola tricks. If this were the case back then MJ, Whitney, Prince, Janet, Mariah, TLC, Madonna, Barbara, Aretha etc would’ve had more hits then that’s considerable theirs til this today

    • Bravo!! November 10, 2020

      Thank you!, for stating the obvious

    • Kel November 10, 2020

      Yeah because umm the album is cute but it wasn’t all that, I listened twice and I can’t remember anything except positions and I wanna get nasty lol but maybe I’ll try it again I guess.

    • Sandra November 11, 2020

      Exactly! People used to queue outside Tower records, Our Price and HMV to purchase Albums and Singles which showed commitment.
      These modern day accolades allow anyone to break records these days.

  3. #WAP November 10, 2020

      This is so true lol…I still love and enjoy the perfect songs of my youth and still demand some perfect songs from these newer artists! 💯 There are some who ARE balancing “real” with “perfection”…and some balancing “lazy’” with “quality” 😂 And some balancing “lazy” with “really bish?” 🤣 And some just throwing songs out there like yesterday’s news! I demand artistry and not the “low quality posing as art” thing like Aubrey O’Day either 😂 I know artists can’t really hide anymore and the youth want to see them more, but damn find a place to gather your thoughts lmaoooo…and you CAN polish a turd 😂 Like damn, I know it’s wack but you can make it sound better than THAT lol

    Congratulations Ariana. 🙂 She joins a supreme list of future legends of the Hot 100. 🙂

    Imagine of …

    MJ’s whole Thriller album charted, Whitney’s The Bodyguard OST, or The Beatles’ greatest hits.

    No feat for CrossEyedAna.

    So since the TRUE haters want to know my opinion and take on things (and they are clinging, following and truly insufferable lol), here it GOES…Ariana needs SIGNATURE SONGS…she needs to show her SKILLS, if she truly has them! Love Me Harder is her best song in my opinion, so it should come as no surprise that The Weeknd has the best thing here yet again lol…now, I know she’ll put another album out in 9 months, so maybe that was the plan, and I am aware of the songwriters who took Ariana to #1 (and are her real life friends), and I’m aware Max is ABSENT and will probably be back on #7…it’s time for something that goes along with the HYPE..that’s all…and maybe she’s saving her voice for her 30’s, I don’t know lol…but I know what I HEAR 💯 🤳🏽

    • PinotNoir November 11, 2020

      Not saving her voice for her 30s, chile! 😂

  10. Detruth November 11, 2020

    This is a great album the haters stay pressed!
