“Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” is knocked Grande’s own “7 Rings” from first place to second place in UK Charts. This makes Ariana Grande, first US female singer, to exchange first two places with her own singles.
Previously in UK charts history, the top two positions were occupied by the same artist was happened to Madonna in 1985, with her singles Into the Groove” and “Holiday.” But they did not clash each other as they released on same date.
Now, Ariana Grande’s another track “Needy” entered eighth place on its release on February 8, 2019. This makes her three singles in UK Charts after Ruby Murray in the year 1955 to hold three singles in top 10 at same week.
Nearly Ariana Grande broke Madonna’s record after 33 years and Ruby Murray’s record whooping 64 years.
Though Ms Grande decided to stay away from Grammy gala event, due to misunderstanding with its organisers, it did not hurt her popularity. Now her singles occupy three places (1,2 and 8) in UK Chart top 10.
According to the Official Charts Company, “Thank U. Next” holding great position, it is outselling top five albums altogether. Taking into consideration of gap between her two albums. – Ariana Grande’s previous album “Sweetener” released just on August 2018 – is only six months.
Tough Grande’s first ever Grammy nomination went ineffective, happened in 2014 for ‘Best Pop Duo/Group.’ Upto now, she was nominated for five time, but without any victory.
This year she was nominated under two category, Best Pop Vocal Performance – God Is a Woman and Best Pop Vocal Album – Sweetener (2018). But a disagreement bet Ariana Grande and GRAMMY produces Ken Ehrlich, forced her to stay away from the gala ceremony.
But everybody’s surprise, Grande awarded for Best Pop Vocal Album in GRAMMY award function held on 10th February at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. This is first ever GRAMMY award in her career.
Due to Ariana Grande’s earlier decision of not to attend the gala event, she happen to be at her home. After hearing the award result, she expressed her happiness in her instagram, “i know i’m not there tonight (trust, i tried and still truly wished it had worked out tbh) and i know i said i try not to put too much weight into these things …. but f#@$.” Further she registered her felicity after her first in the career winning of GRAMMY by Recording Academy, “this is wild and beautiful. thank you so much.”
Forthcoming Grammy Award function (to be aired on Feb 10) will see a setback, in the form of disagreement between producers and Singer Ariana.
Grande felt insulted, when producers refused start with, to allow her to perform her latest single “7 Rings” from her (to be released on Friday, 8th Feb) album ‘Thank U, Next’. Afterwards a compromise was proposed, as she will be allowed to perform ‘7 Rings’ and the second song would be their choice. But Ms Grande is not ready to succumb, she decided to keep away from the show itself.
Besides performing in the gala event she is also nominated under two categories . Best Pop Vocal Performance – God Is a Woman and Best Pop Vocal Album – Sweetener (2018). Now her refusal to participate is seen as refusal for nomination itself.
This development really a blow to this year Grammy Awards, as Ariana Grande is vital pop singer at the moment.
