Channel O Top 30: Ariana Grande scores #1

10 December 2018
Ariana Grande's first Billboard Hot 100 chart topper is now blazing through Mzansi as the Pop singer holds the biggest bop in the country this week
<p>Ariana Grande</p>

Ariana Grande's year has oscillated between tragedy and triumph.

The untimely passing of her former boyfriend Mac Miller and her highly publicised split from comedian Pete Davidson both mark some of the lows. It's her triumphant return that has inspired her fans, however. Grande debuted her critically acclaimed album, Sweetener, which spawned a slew of bangers that include No Tears Left To Cry. 

This week. Ariana shoots to the top of the charts with her freshest scorcher, Thank U, Next. The song has become somewhat the hottest breakup, or at least 'moving on' anthem of the year.
