Ariana Grande has had one busy year! Just last month she broke Miley Cyrus’ record of the fastest woman to accumulate three No. 1 albums. The 27-year-old star made history after her latest album Positions hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart: she set the record for the fastest woman to have three No. 1 album, beating a record previously held by Miley Cyrus. It only took Grande two years and three months to have a trio of No. 1 albums on the chart, following the releases of 2018’s Sweetener and 2019’s Thank U, Next.
“hello / thank u. i know these things aren’t v important on the grand scheme of things but when they do happen i feel it’s important to express gratitude for your love and support !!! so i am indeed rambling today. sry,” she wrote on Instagram. “this is my favorite album yet and your response to the music has made my heart so incredibly full, i can’t even begin to fully express how much it means. so thank u. so very much,” she added.
