Let’s be honest here, we didn’t expect Ariana Grande’s new album, Positions, to debut anywhere other than at No. 1.
How it started:
And about how it’s going? Well, Positions just debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, Billboard Top Album Sales, Billboard Pop Album, and Billboard Streaming Album charts.
This not only makes it her fifth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 but also, Positions is Ariana Grande’s third No.1 in less than two years and three months. This is not only impressive, to say the least, but it’s also the fastest accumulation of three No. 1 proper studio albums ever by a woman. But let’s not forget about one thing: Billboard has changed their rules. Positions is also the album with the highest one-week sales since Billboard stopped counting bundles into the charts and ranking.
In less than a month, Ariana Grande has caused what feels like a cultural reset. Starting with a tweet, passing through the release of the amazing first single ‘Positions’ and its music video, the release of the full album, and now her well-deserved debut at No. 1.
This album has been on repeat for everyone in the last week, and it will surely continue to be for months and even years. With Ariana’s insane vocals, the amazing lyrics, and the incredible production in every single track, this is probably her best release to date.
