Ariana Grande is the girl to beat!
In just one week the Grammy winner has rewritten the Billboard history charts on a number of fronts. First, as we reported here, her latest album – ‘thank u, next’ – dominated the Billboard 200 thanks to record-breaking streams (the most of any Pop artist ever).
Next, she became the first solo artist in history to simultaneously occupy the #1, #2, and #3 spots on the Hot 100 with songs ‘7 Rings,’ ‘Break Up with Your Girlfriend,’ and ‘thank u, next’ respectively. Lastly, the songstress can now lay claim to the title of ‘most concurrent top 40 hits’ among females. Besting the title’s previous owner, Cardi B (as she nabbed 9 simultaneous top 40 entries from her debut album ‘Invasion of Privacy’), Grande’s accomplishment comes as she placed 11 tunes in the same region of the Hot 100.
