Ariana Grande holds top three spots on Billboard Hot 100, first artist to do so since The Beatles
Ariana Grande famously proclaims herself to be “so f*cking grateful” for her ex on viral chart sensation, “thank u, next.” Grande, however, now has a lot more to be thankful for, aside from the sagacity that post-breakup introspection allows. The day’s reigning pop queen recently transcended “Grammy nominee” status, to secure a coveted golden statue for “Best Pop Album” for Sweetener. Prior to winning the first Grammy of her career, Grande gave Coachella the green light when the chic California affair offered her a headlining slot for the event’s 2019 iteration. Grande made history in her acceptance of Coachella 2019 headlining duties, becoming the youngest headliner in the festival’s history.
Grande’s list of accomplishments tumbles on as Grande sets yet another record, this one previously held by The Beatles. Grande is the first artist in 55 years to have productions concurrently occupying the first, second, and third spots on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Her thank u, next album inclusions “7 rings,” “break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored,” and “thank u, next,” fill the consecutive chart positions. Grande is only the second artist in the Hot 100’s 60-year existence to simultaneously occupy the number one, two, and three spaces on the chart, and the first since John, Paul, George, and Ringo achieved the same feat in 1964.
