Ariana Grande has become one of the few music artists who has maintained a pace of breaking records after records, and this time around she did it again.
According to CNN, Grande recently broke another record earning her 20th Guinness World Records title. Guinness World Records last week announced that Grande’s newest accolade is “most songs to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100,” with five of her songs topping the charts.
“What makes her recent record achievement so extraordinary is that Grande is currently the only artist to have accomplished this in history,” Guinness World Records wrote on its website on February 2. “Her triumphs come off the back of the impressive strides she has made in the entertainment business, which began in her teens.”
On October 30, 2020, Grande released her sixth album, “Positions” with her single “Positions” hitting number one at the Billboard Hot 100 by November 7, 2020.
Aside from “Positions”, Grande’s other number one debuts on the US Hot 100 singles chart include: “thank u, next”, “7 rings”, “Stuck with U” (featuring Justin Bieber) and “Rain on Me” (Lady Gaga featuring Grande).
The young star has definitely left a mark on the entertainment industry, and she continues with her spirited drive to keep producing music and break records.
It had also been reported that Grande was supposed to have performed alongside The Weeknd during the Super Bowl halftime performance in Tampa, Florida, but it was later confirmed she wasn’t going to do so.
However, The Weeknd made it very clear ahead of the game, though: Don’t expect Grande to be there or anyone else.
Some of Grande’s other notable Guinness World Records titles include:
- Most streamed track on Spotify in one week (female)
- Most followers on Spotify (female)
- First solo act to occupy top three positions simultaneously on US singles chart
- Most simultaneous Top 40 entries on US singles chart by a female artist
- Most streamed track on Spotify in one week
- Most subscribers for a musician on YouTube (female)
- Most streamed pop album in one week (USA)
- Most MTV VMA nominations for Best Collaboration.
- Most streamed track in one week by a female artist on the Billboard charts
- Most monthly listeners on Spotify for a female
According to the Billboard, Ariana Grande still maintains the top spot on Billboard‘s Pop Airplay chart but her “34+35” song recently moved up the ladder and jumps 4-1 (on the survey dated Feb. 13), replacing “Positions,” which dominated for seven weeks.
Both songs are from Grande’s latest LP, Positions, which was released on Republic Records and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in November.
