New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Multi-platinum, record-breaking superstar ARIANA GRANDE captures #1 on the Billboard 200 with her fifth full-length album, thank u, next.
This marks her fourth number one bow on the chart and second number one bow in under six months. The album broke numerous records right out of the gate. With 360k equivalent album units in under seven days, it now holds the record for Largest Streaming Week for a Pop Album & Female Artist. She also ascends as The Only Female Artist to Grace the List of Top Ten Biggest Streaming Weeks.

thank u, next smashed the global Spotify record for biggest opening day by a female artist as songs from the album occupied the Top 12 spots on the Spotify U.S. Chart. Not to mention, it achieved the biggest first 24 hours for a pop album in Apple music history and set the record for most streams by a female artist in Apple Music history.

Album tracks dominated the Top 10 on Apple Music Global chart and she landed a rare trifecta of number ones with #1 Song, #1 Album, and #1 Music Video simultaneously on Apple Music and iTunes. Plus, she clinched the #1 Song on Spotify, Global and U.S.

Internationally ARIANA also continues to rule, in the UK she becomes the first female artist in history to simultaneously hold the #1 album and Top 2 singles on the Official UK Charts. She also became the first artist in history to replace herself at #1 on the UK Official Singles Chart, the first female artist to have three singles concurrently in the Top 10 of the UK Official Singles Chart as a lead artist since 1955, and joins Elvis Presley, John Lennon, and Justin Bieber as the only artists ever to score three #1 singles in under 100 days in the U.K. thank u, next also surpasses Sweetener with the most album streams ever in the U.K. by a female artist in a week.

This follows her recent GRAMMY Award win in the category of "Best Pop Vocal Album" for last year's critically acclaimed Sweetener. Meanwhile, "7 rings" enjoys its fourth consecutive week at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

With her powerful vocals and astonishing range, GRAMMY® Award-winning Ariana Grande has emerged as one of the most magnetic and massively successful performers in music today. At age 25, she's delivered three platinum-selling albums and surpassed 30 billion streams, in addition to nabbing six Grammy Award nominations and winning one, and landing 11 hits in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

In November, Grande released the title track for her upcoming fifth album "thank u, next" which racked up the most weekly streams ever for a song by a female artist while topping Billboard's Hot 100 chart for multiple weeks. The video holds the record for the biggest music video debut in YouTube history, earning 55.4 million views in its first 24 hours. It is also the fastest video to earn 100 million views, reaching that milestone just four days following its release. Thanks largely to the success of "thank u, next," Grande (Billboard's 2018 "Woman of the Year") was the Top Streamed female artist on Spotify in 2018.

Since making her full-length debut with 2013's Yours Truly (featuring the game-changing, triple-platinum smash "The Way"), Grande has brought her striking vocal presence to a genre-blurring breed of pop, taking on R&B, soul, and electronic music with equal nuance and assurance. Arriving in 2014, her sophomore effort My Everything, featured the 6x-platinum hits "Problem" and "Bang Bang." In 2016, Grande released the critically acclaimed Dangerous Woman, which included the singles "Dangerous Woman," "Into You," and "Side to Side." In 2018, Grande's fourth album, Sweetener, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart, spawned the singles "God is a Woman," "breathin'," and lead single "No Tears Left To Cry," and won "Best Pop Vocal Album" at the 2019 GRAMMY® Awards. Grande is the first artist in music history to have the lead single from her first five albums debut on the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Through the years, the longtime actress and former Broadway star has proven the scope of her talent by appearing on Scream Queens and Hairspray Live! and showcased her comedic chops by hosting Saturday Night Live. With her social media following now surging past 200 million, Grande has also earned numerous accolades from the MTV Video Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and American Music Awards, including the highly coveted Artist of the Year prize.
