Ariana Grande continues her hot streak, setting a new chart record with “7 Rings.”
According to Billboard, the song has become the singer’s fourth number one on the publication’s Pop Songs radio airplay chart since last July. By achieving that feat in less than eight months, she sets the record for the fastest accumulation of four number ones by any artist.
“No Tears Left to Cry” hit number one on the chart for the week dated July 21, 2018, followed by “God Is a Woman” the week of November 10. Then “thank u, next” took the top spot on January 26 of this year, before “7 Rings” hit number one this week.
Ariana narrowly surpasses Lady Gaga, who previously set the record from July 25, 2009 through March 27, 2010, with “LoveGame,” “Paparazzi,” “Bad Romance” and “Telephone.”
Ariana now has six number ones on the Pop Songs chart in total: “Problem” featuring Iggy Azalea became her first number one on the chart in 2014, followed by “Side to Side” featuring Nicki Minaj in 2016.
