In case you weren’t paying attention: Ariana Grande is here. In a big way.
The singer’s smash single, “Problem,” will earn a spot in the history books when it lands the eighth-biggest debut ever on the Billboard Digital Songs chart this week.
Grande’s collabo with Iggy Azalea moved 438,000 copies, for the biggest chart debut of the year and the best first week for a song on that chart since Katy Perry’s “Roar” shifted 557,000 in August. Iggy had a pretty great week too, with her Charli XCX single “Fancy” hopping four spots to #2 on sales of 222,000.
All the change meant that after 11 weeks at #1 Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” slipped down to #3 (174,000) while John Legend’s “All of Me” moved two spots down to #4 (161,000).
