  /  11.12.2018

Ariana Grande earns her first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with “thank u, next.”

The song, inspired by her ex-boyfriends, debuts atop the chart and becomes the first No. 1 debut for a woman since Adele’s “Hello.” “thank u” received 55.5 million U.S. streams and 81,000 downloads in the week ending Nov. 8, according to Billboard.

Grande previously peaked a No. 2 with 2014’s “Problem” featuring Iggy Azalea. “Next” is her 11th Hot 100 top 10 and first since “God Is a Woman,” which reached No. 8 in September.

“thank u thank u thank u,” tweeted a grateful Grande. “yeeeeeee baby’s first number one.”

“thank u” is Grande’s 35th Hot 100 entry. She made her Hot 100 debut in April 2013 with “The Way” featuring Mac Miller, which peaked at No. 9.

After seven weeks on top of the chart, Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You” featuring Cardi B falls to No. 2, while Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode” dips 2-3.
