Pop Radio Charts: Ariana Grande Grabs #1 Spot Back From Bieber After He Ended Her Longest Reign Yet

Published: Tuesday 9th Feb 2021 by Rashad

While it’s not enjoyed the critical acclaim of its predecessors, tunes from Ariana Grande‘s latest album – ‘Positions’ – can at least boast a similar commercial response, a feat evidenced by their ongoing buoyancy on Billboard charts.

Still found in the Billboard 200’s top 10 over three months after its release, the top-selling LP has been given lifelines thanks to the release pace of its singles – including the recently unveiled remix to single ’34+35′ featuring Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat (click here to listen).

Though impressive streaming and digital downloads have aided the endurance of cuts from ‘Positions,’ it’s been radio that’s acted as a driving force behind its success.

See what we mean inside:

Just two weeks ago, Grande – who had enjoyed 7 weeks atop the Pop radio charts with her hit song ‘Positions’ – was on the verge of marking her career longest reign on the tally when the tenure was disrupted by Justin Bieber‘s ‘Lonely.’

Note:  Ari’s previous longest run atop the Pop radio charts was the 7-week reign of ‘7 Rings.’

His stay at #1 was short-lived, however, as this week sees Ariana back in the top spot – this time with ’34+35.’  Thanks to a whopping 83.1 million impressions in the United States, the song hopped to the top of Pop radio charts from its #5 spot last week.  Its ascent marks the 8th time of her career she’s occupied the position.

Said radio airplay was one-third of the equation that helped it land at #4 on this week’s Hot 100 as well – a chart that also takes streaming and digital downloads into account.

    “Lonely” was also the Eighth Pop Radio No. 1 for Prince Justin Bieber tying him with Princess Ariana Grande and legendary Justin Timberlake at only 26 years old. But I guess that got lossed somewhere in translation. Royal Rihanna currently holds the record with 11. ❤️
