25-year-old pop singer Ariana Grande just hit a major milestone that hasn’t been achieved since The Beatles.
Grande swept the No. 1, 2, and 3 spots of the Billboard Hot 100 chart with “7 Rings,” “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored,” and “thank u, next,” respectively.
For five weeks in March and April 1964, the Beatles held those spots with “Can’t Buy Me Love” at No. 1, “Twist and Shout” at No. 2, and “Do You Want to Know a Secret” at No. 3.
Grande has also set the record for the most simultaneous top 40 Billboard Hot 100 hits by a female artist: a total of 11. In fact, all 12 songs from “thank u, next” made the chart, but one of them landed outside the top 40. Grande breaks this record previously set by Cardi B, who sent nine songs from her album “Invasion of Privacy” into the top 40 when it was released in April of last year.
