Grande’s sixth and most recent album, “Positions,” was released on October 30, 2020. Her single “Positions” hit number one the Billboard Hot 100 by November 7, 2020.

The pop icon’s other No.1 debuts on the US Hot 100 singles chart include: “thank u, next”, “7 rings”, “Stuck with U” (featuring Justin Bieber) and “Rain on Me” (Lady Gaga featuring Grande).
