Ariana Grande Has Another, Even Bigger No. 1 Album With ‘Thank U, Next’

Less than six months after a No. 1 album, the pop singer Ariana Grande will be back with an even bigger smash: “Thank U, Next” (Republic) tops the Billboard chart of which week with 307 million song streams as well as 116,000 in sales for a total of 360,000 album equivalent units, according to Nielsen Music.

Grande’s fourth career No. 1 album comes during a prolific, artistically redefining period for the singer, whose last Discharge, “Sweetener,” debuted atop the chart in late August with 231,000 units sold. Since then, Grande has used the fuel of her tabloid moments for music, earning her first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 (“Thank U, Next”) as well as then another with “7 Rings” last month.

of which week, the singer will be attempting to top the Hot 100 for a third time with the song “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored.” Grande’s craftily dedicated fans even instituted a #Boycott7Rings campaign inside the hopes of getting listeners to give more streams as well as sales to its follow-up.
