Ariana Grande is dominating the “Billboard” Hot 100 chart. In fact, the singer currently holds the top three spots, a feat that hasn’t been done since 1964.
Ari tops the chart with “7 Rings” for a fourth week, with “Breakup With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” at two and “Thank U, Next” at three. The only other act to ever hold the top three spots simultaneously is The Beatles, who did it for five weeks. One of those weeks, April 4, 1964, they actually held the Top Five spots.
Meanwhile, Ari’s “7 Rings” also tops the Streaming Songs chart for a fourth week, with “I’m Bored” at two on that chart, as well as the Digital Songs Sales chart.
- Elsewhere in the Hot 100, Halsey’s “Without Me” is at four, while Post Malone and Swae Lee’s “Sunflower” is at five.
- Rounding out the Top Ten are: Marshmello and Bastille’s “Happier” at six, TravisScott’s “Sicko Mode” at seven, Panic! At the Disco’s “High Hopes” at eight, Post Malone’s “Wow” at nine and Benny Blanco, Halsey and Khalid’s “Eastside” at ten.
There has been speculation that Lady Gaga’s engagement to fiancé Christian Carino is over, and apparently they are true. A rep for the Oscar-nominated singer has confirmed to “People” that the couple has split.
“It just didn’t work out. Relationships sometimes end,” a source tells the mag, noting the pair split “a bit ago.” “There’s no long dramatic story.”
Rumors of a breakup started after folks noticed Christian wasn’t with Gaga at the GRAMMYs, and that she wasn’t wearing her ring at the event. She also didn’t thank him in her acceptance speech.
This is Gaga’s second engagement to fall through. She was previously engaged to actor Taylor Kinney, who she was with for five years.
