Ariana Grande is truly making waves and there’s no stopping her. The American pop star has officially matched a chart record that was previously achieved by The Beatles thanks to her new album, Thank U, Next.
After numbers came in for her album, which went No. 1, Grande made history by occupying the top-three spots on the Hot 100 chart with her latest singles: “7 Rings,” “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored,” and “Thank U, Next” (in that exact order).
The Beatles were the last musicians to achieve this back in 1964, when they ruled the charts with “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Twist and Shout,” and “Do You Want to Know a Secret.” It’s worth noting that Grande is the first solo artist to set this record, too.
“Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” was only just released on Feb. 7, but it’s already climbing the chart in a way that suggests it’ll reach No. 1 status soon. Meanwhile, “Thank U, Next” was No. 1 for seven weeks, and “7 Rings” has held the No. 1 spot for the last four weeks. Naturally, the popularity of her music has crowned Thank U, Next as the most-streamed pop album ever, and Grande as pop music’s indisputable queen.
