It’s okay to have a sweet tooth for an album like Sweetener, the new release by Republic superstar Ariana Grande, which fills your plate with tasty tunes from start to finish. With an expected debut at #1 on next week’s Billboard 200 list, Grande’s album remains steady at #1 on iTunes and its 15 cuts are responsible for nearly 645 million streams on Spotify. The album’s two big hits to date, “no tears left to cry” and “God is a woman”, are certainly helping things, with the former having two charted versions and nearly 375 million streams, and the latter jumping to #1 on the songs list (displacing album cut “breathin” in the process) and 138 million streams. On both Spotify and Apple Music, Grande is dominating the U.S. charts with at least 15 songs in the top 100 at the two services, and the amazing results don’t end there. Globally, her album landed on the all-genre list at iTunes in 110 countries, going to #1 in 97, or 88% of them, a wider launch than 2016’s Dangerous Woman, which charted in 101 countries and went to #1 in 70 in a deluxe form. As “breathin” becomes the next big track from the set, with 21,000 tags on Shazam and 19.5 million streams on Spotify, the ear candy that Grande is serving will continue to satisfy.
