No Grammy performance, no problem. Ariana Grande will top the Billboard 200 for the week ending February 14 with the first week of 360,000 album equivalent units moved.
Billboard details the performance of Thank U, Next is the biggest effort for a Pop album in over a year. The latest album, pushed by the title track, in addition to “7 Rings,” is the fourth number one album for the pop star, second in six months and now holds the record for the biggest streaming week ever for an album in the pop category.
Ariana Grande has tied Taylor Swift for the second most number one albums in the past decade, only trailing Lady Gaga. The album replaces A Boogie Wit da Hoodie who had a three-week run t the top slot. The two and three slots are owned by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born and the soundtrack for Bohemian Rhapsody, both of which may be receiving bumps due to Awards season.
Ariana Grande may have missed the Grammy’s stage, by choice, but you can catch her at Coachella at the start of the spring.
