In a remarkable milestone for pop music, Ariana Grande has solidified her status as a chart-topping sensation, surpassing Taylor Swift to claim the title of the female artist with the most songs debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

At 30 years old, Ariana Grande adds another accolade to her illustrious career with “We Can’t Be Friends (Wait for Your Love),” a track from her latest album, Eternal Sunshine, soaring to the top spot on the Billboard chart. This marks Grande’s seventh song to achieve the prestigious No. 1 debut, overtaking Swift, 34, and etching her name in music history.

Among Grande’s roster of chart-toppers are fan favorites like “Thank U, Next” and “7 Rings” from her album Thank U, Next, alongside collaborations such as “Stuck With U” and “Rain on Me” with Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga respectively, from 2020. Additionally, singles like “Positions” and the first two releases from Eternal Sunshine, “Yes, And?” and “We Can’t Be Friends (Wait for Your Love),” have contributed to her record-breaking achievement.

While Swifties may find solace in the imminent release of Swift’s first single from her upcoming album, The Tortured Poets Department, set to drop on April 19, Grande’s current feat stands as a testament to her unparalleled success in the music industry.

Swift’s dedicated fan base and her undeniable musical prowess suggest that she is poised to match Grande’s accomplishment, as she aims to add to her impressive six No. 1 debuts, including hits like “Shake It Off” and “Cardigan.”

However, both Grande and Swift find themselves in pursuit of Drake, who holds the record with nine No. 1 song debuts on the Billboard Hot 100. While Grande’s recent milestone places her firmly in the spotlight, she and Swift still trail behind Drake in terms of overall No. 1 hits on the Hot 100 chart.

As Grande continues to captivate audiences with her soulful vocals and infectious melodies, her record-breaking success serves as a testament to her enduring influence in the world of pop music.
