We can count on Ariana Grande to top the charts every time she drops a new album, and she truly exceeded our expectations with Eternal Sunshine. This album soared to the top of the Billboard 200 chart, while its latest single “We Can’t Be Friends” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Eternal Sunshine earned 227,000 equivalent album units following its debut on March 8, including 77,000 in album sales. This marks the largest week for an album in 2024, and it marks Grande’s sixth studio album to soar to the top of the Billboard 200 chart.

To make the whole thing even better, she also topped the Hot 100 chart with her latest single “We Can’t Be Friends (Wait for Your Love)”. This song drew in pretty impressive numbers during its debut week, hitting No. 1 with 32.6 million streams, 4.6 million radio airplay audience impressions, and 9,000 in sales.

“We Can’t Be Friends” is Grande’s seventh song to debut atop the Hot 100 chart, helping her break a record for most No. 1 debuts among women, previously held by Taylor Swift. Grande also made history as the first female artist with multiple chart-topping Hot 100 debuts from two different albums, having previously topped the chart with “Yes, And?”
