Hot 100: Ariana Grande Earns Historic 18th Top 10 Hit with New Song ’34+35′

Her five Hot 100 #1s may pale in comparison to the 19 chart-toppers accrued by her idol, Queen of the Hot 100 Mariah Carey, but Ariana Grande‘s growing stats on the weekly chart continue to prove she too is worthy of royal recognition.

As if earning her first quintet of chart-topping hits faster than any other artist wasn’t enough, she’s also the only act to watch each of her album’s lead singles premiere in the top 10.  What’s more, she’s the only artist to debut 5 songs at the Hot 100’s summit over her career.

Now, as fans celebrate the arrival of her sixth studio album, ‘Positions,’ in the Billboard 200’s top position (as we reported here), more content from the set is delivering historic results for the GRAMMY winner.

As has become standard fare for her releases, Grande’s ‘Positions’ album saw every song from its tracklist debut on the refreshed Hot 100.  The most impressive of the premieres was the #8 opening of ’34+35′ – the sexually suggestive cut marked as the project’s latest radio single. Its arrival follows the LP’s kickoff cut, its chart-topping title track (which slipped to #2 on this week’s chart).

Here are the numbers that accompanied ’34+35′ to the top 10:

  • Streaming: 21.7 million
  • Digital downloads: 3,000 copies
  • Radio airplay:  5.7 million impressions

Those figures helped Ariana accumulate a historic 18th top 10 hit, the fastest accrual of any artist who debuted in the 2010s.


“Grande adds her 18th total Hot 100 top 10 dating to her first, “The Way.” Since that song debuted at No. 10 on April 13, 2013 (before peaking at No. 9 that June), her 18 top 10s are the most among women and second only to Drake’s 31 among all acts in that [7-year] span.”

On the all-time list, however, Ari has quite a way to go to the top.

Most Billboard Hot 100 Top 10s (among women)

38, Madonna

31, Rihanna

    A very bad album.

    10 years from now, when people are discussing ariana’s discography, they will omit this rubbish album.

    Well … La-Dee-Dah!

    A new low for a lowly generation.

    She must drop the innocent image now that she sings F- & P-words.

    The fact that a song about 69 positions was delivered in such a bland basic way is abysmal. This girl is talented I don’t understand why she is going down this route.
