Ariana Grande, top 1 on Spotify globally with 'yes, and?'

Music news

Ariana Grande achieves her 8th top 1 in the US in 5 years

Ariana Grande has achieved in her country what has eluded her in the United Kingdom: debuting at number 1 in singles. The wonderful ‘yes, and?’, one of the first great songs she has given us in 2024, is a direct entry to the top of the Billboard Hot 100.

‘Si y?’ It is number 1 in sales and streaming in the United States, and also number 28 in radio. It achieves this with 27 million local streams and 25 million radio impressions. It has also sold 53,000 copies, of which 41,000 have been digital. Up to 14 versions of the song have been released to achieve this goal: accelerated and slowed down remixes, a cappella versions, with swearing and censored, instrumental and non-instrumental.

Ariana Grande’s previous number 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 have been ‘thank u, next’, ‘7 Rings’, ‘Stuck With U’ with Justin Bieber, ‘Rain On Me’ with Lady Gaga, ‘positions’, ‘Save Your Tears’ with The Weeknd, ‘Die for You’ with The Weeknd and now ‘yes, and?’.

If you look, although Ariana Grande’s career began a little over 10 years ago, all of her number 1 hits have occurred in the last five years. And it is assumed that the singer has been retired for a while. That her last album ‘positions’ dates back 4 years. But her remixes with The Weeknd have kept her very present, and now the good reception of ‘yes, and?’.

With this data, Ariana ties with Taylor Swift at 6 the number of direct number 1s achieved. She also ties with Beyoncé for number 1s on the Billboard Hot 100 with that total of 8. As for female artists, they only surpass both Mariah Carey (19), Rihanna (14), Madonna (12), Whitney Houston and Taylor Swift (11), Janet Jackson (10) and Katy Perry (9).
