This makes the 25-year-old singer the first artist since the Beatles in 1964, to achieve this feat essentially making her as popular now as the Beatles once were in their prime (in as much as such a bold comparison can be made with streaming’s impact considered, of course).
The Beatles did it first with “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Twist and Shout,” and “Do You Want to Know a Secret,” while Ari becomes the first solo artist to do it.
Ari’s “7 Rings” now holds the No. 1 spot for a fourth week; meanwhile, “Thank U, Next” previously went No. 1 for seven weeks, and “Break Up” has entered the chart going straight to No. 2, making it a serious contender for her third No. 1 from the album as well as in her chart history.
