NEW YORK – Pop princess Ariana Grande is the first act in more than 50 years to claim the top three places in the US single charts, industrial tracker Billboard said on Monday.
The 25-year-old star is the second act in the six-decade history of the Billboard Hot 100 chart that did the trick, after the Beatles in 1964.
Grandes "7 Rings", "Break Up With Your Girlfriend" and "Thank U Next" monopolized the top hit charts after their fifth album was released on Billboard's top albums.
The Beatles occupied the same spots in April 1964, with "Can not Buy Me Love", "Twist and Shout", and "Want to Know a Secret" on the chart.
The All-Genre Hot 100 combines US streaming, radio airplay and digital sales data to get the best results.
Grande also broke the record for the most concurrent top 40 hits of an artist with 11 tracks, which beat rapper Cardi B's previous record of 9.
The pop star has experienced a resounding success in the past 12 months. Billboard named her the Woman of the Year 2018.
This month, she earned her first Grammy for Best Pop vocal album for "Sweetener," which prevailed over tough competition like longtime favorite Taylor Swift.
Grande was remarkably absent during the gala meeting during the show with the producer of the show – but the social media fan caught everyone's attention with ruthless posts, including a Zac Posen satin ball gown for the show had planned.
The superstar's latest album titled "Thank U, Next," like his lead single, sees the star hone their bubblegum brand with a snappy personal advantage.
Several songs point to a turbulent last year when Grande broke up with rapper Mac Miller, who died in September at the age of 26, and ended a brief but heavily publicized involvement with comedian Pete Davidson.
