Youtube’s latest statistics will break the hearts of a humongous fan following that belongs to Katy Perry and Taylor Swift as someone has overtaken the two pop queens to grab the spot of the most subscribed female artist.
All good things do come to an end and so it has happened with Katy Perry and Taylor Swift as well. While the majority of the adults grew up listening to these two sensations, the current generations seem to be obsessed with someone else now.
Together these two female artists gave the world ‘teenage dreams’ and even a never-ending ‘love story’. But has the world found someone even better? The initial guesses might land on Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus/Hemsworth, or Simon Cowell’s old pal, Sinitta, unfortunately, they are not even close.
And if you have still managed to make a very wild guess because of being a pop fan still, then yes it’s Ariana Grande who has achieved this feat in no time.
The American singer-songwriter is now ruling with 32.8 million subscribers as compared to Swift’s 32.3 million and Perry’s 32.3 million, previously. Looking at the digits, some of you might think that this doesn’t decide if she is the best but Arian also wins when it comes to social media.
On Instagram, she boasts 146m followers while Taylor Swift has 114m, and Katy Perry retains the third spot with 75.7m. (These numbers were recorded after the app announced to delete fake accounts and followings.)
With that, Grande is also dominating in most of the records through her music videos as one of her recent songs 7 rings turned out to be the biggest debut of 2019 so far after receiving 23.6 million views in its first 24 hours, as per the reports of Billboard.
Her charm continued with ‘Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored’ as well which had the second-largest premiere of the year with 21.9 million views in 24 hours.
Ariana began her singing career by securing a record deal with Republic for her first single ‘Put Your Hearts Up’ back in 2011. She later released her first studio album ‘Yours Truly’ in 2013 which shot to the number spot in US album charts. After that, there was no stopping as “My Everything”, “Dangerous Woman” and “Sweetener” became huge successes one after another.
Till date, she has 3 American Music Awards to her name along with numerous nominations in Grammy Awards as well. Grande is considered as one of the most influential personalities on social media and therefore Time also included her name in the list of 100 Most Influential People in 2016. Two years later, she also received Billboard’s Woman of The Year Award in 2018.
Looking back at her success, it is safe to say Ariana is here to stay and slay for a long time.
