An anthem for women moving to the next part of their life, Grande's single has become the number one record on the Billboard Hot 100.
And after receiving positive feedback for her new track "Thank U, Next" - in which she mentions her exes by name, including Mac and Pete - the star has thanked her fans for helping make this year "interesting", although "challenging".
Grande had come close to No. 1 a few times before: 2014's Iggy Azalea-featuring "Problem" peaked at No. 2, while "Bang Bang" (with Nicki Minaj and Jessie J) and the more recent "No Tears Left To Cry" each topped out at No. 3.
The 25-year-old pop princess is the first female to debut at the #1 spot on the Hot 100 list since Adele's "Hello" in 2015. And about an hour later, she posted, "yeeeeeee baby's first number one".More news: Netflix tests RM17 mobile-only plan in MY to understand consumer interest

"I've loved, and I've lost, but that's not what I see".
The rest of the song is a powerful statement from Grande regarding how she has someone new in her life - herself. Wonderful achievement ... as for me, every song you have ever recorded is #1, including all the ones I have on my old computers, teehee, but I'm so happy you got this billboard credit to your name! And when Thank U, Next hits the physical and digital shelves?
"Imagine getting called "one of the most popular artists in the history of showbiz" by Luke Skywalker", the fan says.
