Following the third huge hit from her album Sweetener, “breathin”, Republic’s Ariana Grande isn’t taking a breather when it comes to her next album era. Debuting late Saturday night, the personal “thank u, next” quickly charted and is now sitting comfortably at the top of the U.S. chart on iTunes, outselling the #2 song by a 3-to-1 ratio. Globally, “thank” ranked on the all-genre list in a massive 106 territories at the service, reaching #1 in 59. Similarly, the tune landed at #1 on Apple Music in the U.S. and around the world, with adds on a number of larger pop lists at the service. At Spotify, “thank” reached the summit on both the Global and U.S. lists, breaking several records: with a total of 8.568 million plays globally on Tuesday and 4.191 million plays in the U.S. on Monday, Grande’s hit now holds the biggest single day totals for a female artist. The song also checks in at about 29.3 million streams to date, buoyed by high placement on Today’s Top Hits and other pop playlists. Elsewhere, “thank” has nearly 18 million combined views for an audio-only clip and lyric video on YouTube, which both landed on the Trending chart, as it clears 50,000 tags on Shazam and enters the U.S. list at #66. We’re thankful to see it connecting here. (Images courtesy of Republic Records)
