Ariana Grande has claimed the three top spots on the Billboard Hot 100 – making her the first artist since The Beatles to do so.
The pop-titan simultaneously holds the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd rankings on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.
Grande’s ‘7 Rings’ rides the coveted number 1 spot for a fourth week, followed by ‘Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored’ which made its chart debut at number two.
‘thank u, next’, has climbed up from number 7 to number three to complete the trifecta.
All three songs are taken from thank u, next, the singer’s second album in just six months, which debuted at number 1 on the albums chart.
The last time an artist held the three top spots simultaneously was in March and April of 1964, when The Beatles held the top three spots for five weeks, going on to claim all the top five spots with ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’, ‘Twist and Shout’, ‘She Loves You’, ‘I Want to Hold Your Hand’ and ‘Please, Please Me’.
The Official Charts Company reports that the singer is the first female artist in history to hold both the Number One album and top two singles in the UK, with ‘Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored’ (number one) and ‘7 Rings’ (number two).
