Within less than a year, Ariana Grande captured #1 on the Billboard 200 twice—first with her Republic Records debut ‘Yours Truly’ and also with its 2014 follow-up ‘My Everything’.
‘Yours Truly’ yielded the game-changing pop smash ‘The Way’ featuring Mac Miller, which went triple-platinum, landed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, and seized #1 on the iTunes Overall Top Songs chart. Meanwhile, the platinum-selling ‘My Everything’ garnered a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album and spawned the six times-platinum hit ‘Problem.’ Upon the single’s release, Ariana became “the youngest woman to debut with over 400K sold first-week,” while the song ranked as the 4th “highest digital song debut for a female artist” and 8th highest ever. Moreover, it debuted at #1 in 85 countries, topping the iTunes Overall Top Songs and Pop Songs charts for four weeks. During release week, ‘My Everything’ was #1 on Spotify as Ariana personally rose to #1 on Billboard’s Artist 100 chart. She also became the first woman in history and the first artist since Michael Jackson to simultaneously have three songs — ‘Problem’, ‘Break Free’ featuring Zedd, and ‘Bang Bang’ with Nicki Minaj and Jessie J—in the Top 6 of the Digital Songs Chart. ‘Bang Bang’ went platinum and was Grammy-nominated for “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.” By the end of the year, she landed four songs in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, the most of any artist in 2014. ARIANA has enjoyed a total of eight Hot 100 Top 10 smashes.
In 2013, she was named Best New Artist at the American Music Awards. Other accolades followed with Ariana winning Favorite Breakout Artist at the People’s Choice Awards 2014, the Young Influencer Award at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, the Radio Disney Chart Topper Award, Choice Female Artist and Choice Single for ‘Problem’ at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, and more. At the 2014 MTV VMAS, ‘Problem’ was also named Best Pop Video as well. In November, Ariana took home the award for Favorite Female Artist – Pop/Rock at the 2015 American Music Awards.
2016 sees Ariana release her platinum-selling third full length album, ‘Dangerous Woman‘, driven by the title track which captured #1 on both iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart and Top Pop Songs Chart minutes after release. ‘Dangerous Woman‘ also debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 earning her the distinction of becoming the first artist to debut on the chart with the lead single from her first three albums. Her current single, ‘Side to Side‘, featuring Nicki Minaj, recently became Grande’s eighth top 10 hit on the Hot 100.
