No matter what Billboard chart you look at this week, it seems like Ariana Grande is not only ruling, but she’s making history in the process. On the Hot 100, the listing that ranks the most popular songs in the U.S. every week, the pop singer is enjoying perhaps the best frame of her career, and in one eye-popping fashion, she’s matched a feat only previously managed by perhaps the most successful musical act of all time.
Grande’s name appears at Nos. 1, 2 and 3 on the Hot 100 with a trio of singles from her new chart-topping album Thank U, Next, and that’s an incredible showing of popularity that only The Beatles have secured before, and it was a long, long time ago. According to Billboard, the Fab Four is the only other act to control the top three positions at once, and they did for several turns back in 1964.
