Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next” is the first Pop song ever to hit #1 on Apple Music’s New Top 100 Global Chart as well on the Top 100 US Chart. The Socialite finds out more next…
The release of “Thank U, Next” has propelled Ariana Grande to surpass 2 billion streams worldwide, joining global superstars Rihanna and Taylor Swift as one of the most streamed female artists on Apple Music.
The song had 9 Million streams worldwide in the first 24 hours with nearly 7 million in America alone.
“Thank U, Next” has already streamed more than double what Ariana’s prior singles have streamed in the first 24 hours. Grande’s surprise single was streamed more than twice the amount of any other song this week, reaching a level of success that’s evaded her peers
Grande is only the fourth single to debut at Number 1 this year following Drake’s Nice For What and God’s Plan, and Dave & Fredo’s Funky Friday. The last female artist to do it was Taylor Swift with Look What You Made Me Do in August 2017.
Ariana Grande has been vocal about her split with ex-fiancé Pete Davidson and this along with her other failed relationships with Big Sean and Ricky Alvarez has inspired her recent single Thank U, Next. The hot single is the ultimate in post-break-up empowerment and the petite star has announced she’s finally in a good relationship – with herself.
‘What an interesting, challenging, painful and yet beautiful and exciting chapter of life,’ the 25-year-old R&B songstress – who boasts 224.9M social media followers – tweeted.
‘When it rains it pours but I’m embracing all of it. I’m excited for whatever else the universe has in store for me. She’s growing [and] she’s grateful.’
The God Is a Woman singer will also be honoured with Billboard’s Woman of the Year on December 6 at their 13th annual Women in Music dinner and awards gala in New York.
