Ariana Grande's 'Thank U, Next' Returns to No. 1 On Hot 100 With Biggest Streaming Week Ever For a Woman

Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next" tops the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Dec. 15), returning for a fourth week at No. 1 following the Nov. 30 arrival of its retro-2000s-themed official video.

The song reigns in large part due to its 93.8 million U.S. streams in the week ending Dec. 6, according to Nielsen Music, the biggest weekly total ever for a song by a female artist. It passes the 84.5 million that Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" logged in its first week (as reflected on charts dated Sept. 16, 2017).

"Next" debuted atop the Nov. 17-dated Hot 100 and spent its first three weeks at No. 1 before falling to No. 2 a week ago.

Record streams: Grande's "Next," released on Republic Records, rebounds to the Hot 100's summit with a 121 percent gain to 93.8 million U.S. streams in the week ending Dec. 6, encompassing the first full tracking week for its official video. On the Streaming Songs chart, the song reigns for a fifth week.

"Next," whose official clip broke 24-hour views records on YouTube and Vevo following its arrival, boasts the best streaming week ever for a song by a woman and the seventh-biggest sum overall.

"Next" jumps 5-2 on the Digital Song Sales chart with a 146 percent burst to 43,000 downloads sold in the week ending Dec. 6. On Radio Songs, it zooms 23-11 (57 million audience impressions, up 44 percent).

"Next" sweeps the Hot 100's Greatest Gainer awards for all metrics (streaming, sales and airplay). It's the first song to claim all three titles at No. 1 since Drake's "In My Feelings," which tripled up atop the charts dated July 21 and 28, powered heavily at the time by the "In My Feelings" viral challenge. Before that, Drake's own "God's Plan" took all three trophies at No. 1 (on March 3) following the arrival of its official video.

"Hello" to a four-week No. 1 by a female: "Next" is the first four-week Hot 100 No. 1 by a female artist in a lead role in over two years, since Sia's "Cheap Thrills" (featuring Sean Paul), which led for four weeks in August 2016. Earlier that year (beginning March 5), Rihanna's "Work" (featuring Drake) dominated for nine frames.

"Next" is the longest-leading Hot 100 No. 1 by a woman with no accompanying artists since Adele's "Hello," which ruled for 10 weeks starting Nov. 14, 2015.

"Next" controls the Hot 100 with nearly a 2-to-1 points lead over Travis Scott's "Sicko Mode

Brilliant start on Spotify :o

She seems to be like the female version of Drake at that point. I mean, she said "imagine" won't even be promoted as a 'promo single', it's just a song she wanted to put out and it slays like this :o

Lol. It's quite funny seeing a Mariah stan coming to this topic to simply post 'overrated'. Like, you got nothing else to do? This is a charts analysis forum, my dear :roll:

Although everybody already knows 'Next' leads the Hot 100 for a fifth week,there's interesting info on this BB article:


'Thank U, Next' Rules Billboard Hot 100 for Fifth Week, Halsey's 'Without Me' Rises to No. 2


...

Grande's "Next," released on Republic Records, spends a fifth week at the Hot 100's summit despite a 46 percent drop to 50.7 million U.S. streams in the week ending Dec. 13, according to Nielsen Music, as it leads the Streaming Songs chart for a sixth week. A week earlier, it made a 121 percent blast to 93.8 million clicks (in the week ending Dec. 6), the largest streaming week for a song by a woman, encompassing the first full tracking frame for its official video, released Nov. 30. ("Next" debuted atop the Nov. 17-dated Hot 100 and spent its first three weeks at No. 1 before falling to No. 2 two weeks ago.)

"Next" holds at No. 2 on the Digital Song Sales chart (which it led for two weeks), down 41 percent to 25,000 downloads sold in the week ending Dec. 13. On Radio Songs, it vaults 11-5 (77.6 million audience impressions, up 36 percent, in the week ending Dec. 16, good for top Airplay Gainer honors on the Hot 100), becoming Grande's 11th Radio Songs top 10; it's her fourth of 2018, tying Halsey for the most top 10s by any artist this year.

Mariah Carey's 'Christmas' Climbs to No. 3 on Billboard Hot 100, Ariana Grande's 'Next' Leads for Seventh Week

Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next" tops the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Jan. 5, 2019) for a seventh week.
...

Grande's "Next," released on Republic Records, and which debuted atop the Nov. 17-dated Hot 100, becoming her first No. 1 on the chart, rebounds 4-3 on the Digital Song Sales chart (which it led for two weeks), up 86 percent to 43,000 downloads sold in the week ending Dec. 27, according to Nielsen Music; all but two titles on the 50-position Digital Song Sales tally show gains, thanks to robust holiday shopping (both before Christmas Day and likely helped after by gift card redemptions).

"Next" holds at No. 5 on Radio Songs (90 million audience impressions, up 4 percent, in the week ending Dec. 30) and tumbles to No. 9 on Streaming Songs, after seven weeks at No. 1 (37.9 million U.S. streams, down 13 percent, in the week ending Dec. 27).
