The year's most anticipated album and ARIANA GRANDE's sophomore effort, My Everything

" [with Jessie
J + Nicki Minaj], and now the album's instant grat track "Best Mistake

ARIANA also hit another milestone this week, making history in the process. After "Best Mistake
" became available, she landed three songs in the Top Six of Billboard's Digital
Songs Chart. She set a new record by becoming the first female artist in history to accomplish that feat. The last artist to notch three songs in the Top Six was Michael Jackson
All four of her new songs also charted on the Hot 100 with three reaching the Top 10. Moreover, she captured #1 on the Artist 100 Chart. That chart analyzes and incorporates activity across the Hot 100, Billboard 200, and Social 50 and includes information drawn from album and track sales as well as radio airplay.

She'll also perform on America's Got Talent August 27 and on NBC's Today Show as part of the Summer Concert Series August 29. She will then sing the national anthem at the NFL Kickoff Game on September
Last week at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, ARIANA took home the honors of "Choice Female Artist" and "Choice Single" for "Problem." It's another massive achievement for the superstar.
ARIANA currently graces the covers of the latest issues of Seventeen
Magazine, and Billboard. Rolling Stone called My Everything, "a confident, intelligent, brazen pop statement, mixing bubblegum diva vocals". The magazine went on to say the album "proves she's already a major force."
Just prior to the record hitting shelves, ARIANA is set to give fans a very special concert presented by iHeartRadio for those who pre-ordered the album through her website ArianaGrande.com. It'll be the first time she plays many of the new songs live, and the video stream will be exclusive to those who pre-order the album and receive the code. Moreover, she just revealed the deluxe edition tracklisting of My Everything. Not only does it include her chart-topping powerhouse anthem with Jessie
J and Nicki Minaj, "Bang Bang," but it also features two stunning solo cuts, "Only 1" and "You Don't Know Me." It's a must for fans everywhere. Target stores will be selling a special edition of My Everything
also including two more songs, "The Cadillac
Song" and "Too Close."

lends a verse to the soulful "Best Mistake," while The Weeknd
adds energy to the sexy "Love Me Harder." Childish Gambino
contributes to "Break Your Heart
Right Back," and "Hands On Me" sees her team with none other than A$AP Ferg. Then, there's "Why Try" which brings ARIANA together with top hit-makers Ryan Tedder and Benny Blanco for another heartfelt gem. Among these collaborations, One Direction's Harry Styles

Bit Of Your Heart" specifically for ARIANA. All in all, Martin
