About Ariana Grande
With her powerful vocals and astonishing range, Ariana Grande has emerged as one of the most magnetic and massively successful performers in music today. At age 25, she’s delivered three platinum-selling albums and surpassed 30 billion streams, in addition to nabbing six Grammy Award nominations, and landing 11 hits in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
In November, Grande released the title track for her upcoming fifth album “thank u, next,” which racked up the most weekly streams ever for a song by a female artist while topping Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for multiple weeks. The video holds the record for the biggest music video debut in YouTube history, earning 55.4 million views in its first 24 hours. It is also the fastest video to earn 100 million views, reaching that milestone just four days following its release. Thanks largely to the success of “thank u, next,” Grande (Billboard’s 2018 “Woman of the Year”) was the Top Streamed female artist on Spotify in 2018.
Since making her full-length debut with 2013’s Yours Truly (featuring the game-changing, triple-platinum smash “The Way”), Grande has brought her striking vocal presence to a genre-blurring breed of pop, taking on R&B, soul, and electronic music with equal nuance and assurance. Arriving in 2014, her sophomore effort, My Everything, featured the 6x-platinum hits “Problem” and “Bang Bang.” In 2016, Grande released the critically acclaimed Dangerous Woman, which included the singles “Dangerous Woman,” “Into You,” and “Side to Side.” In 2018, Grande’s fourth album, Sweetener, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart and spawned the singles “God is a Woman,” “breathin’,” and lead single “No Tears Left To Cry.” Grande is the first artist in music history to have the lead single from her first five albums debut on the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Through the years, the longtime actress and former Broadway star has proven the scope of her talent by appearing on Scream Queens and Hairspray Live! and showcased her comedic chops by hosting Saturday Night Live. With her social media following now surging past 200 million, Grande has also earned numerous accolades from the MTV Video Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and American Music Awards, including the highly coveted Artist of the Year prize.
