Ariana Grande has secured her first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 with her hit song, 'thank u, next'.
The 25-year-old singer topped the chart with her break up track, and the song's triumph marks the first number one debut for a woman since Adele released 'Hello' three years ago.
Meanwhile, Ariana previously opened up about how the last few months - which has seen her battle the loss of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, who passed away in September, and breaking off her engagement with Pete Davidson the following month - have been "painful yet beautiful".
She wrote on Twitter: "i love y'all so damn much. thank u so so much for everything ... what an interesting, challenging, painful and yet beautiful and exciting chapter of life ..... when it rains it pours but i'm embracing all of it. i'm excited for whatever else the universe has in store for me. she's growing n she's grateful.
