Ariana Grande's '7 Rings' Debuts at No. 1
Ariana Grande is back on top.
Following “Thank U, Next,” the singer has earned her second No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with “7 Rings.” The song sold 96,000 downloads and earned 85.3 million U.S. streams in its first week, marking the second-biggest streaming week ever for a song by a female artist.
Drake’s “In My Feelings” holds the overall record with 116.1 million streams, followed by Grande’s own “Thank U, Next” with 93.8 million.
“7 Rings” tops the Hot 100 less than three months after “Next” debuted at No. 1 and led for seven total weeks. She becomes the fifth artist with multiple No. 1 debuts, joining Mariah Carey (three) and Justin Bieber, Drake, and Britney Spears, who have two each.
