Ariana Grande is a renowned American singer and actress. She was ushered into stardom at the tender age of 15, when she played a leading role in Victorious, a Nickelodeon television series. Since then, she has risen through the ranks being one of the most celebrated musicians, thanks to her vocal prowess.

Born on June 26th, 1993, this multi-award winner and pop star has featured in a myriad of musicals. However, her big musical break came with the release of her debut album titled Yours Truly in 2013. The three years spent recording this album paid off handsomely as it debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 album chart. It went on further to sell over 138,000 copies in its debut week.

Appearing on Music’s Hottest Minors 2013 list, winning New Artist of the Year, Breakthrough Artist of the Year, Favorite Breakout Artist of the Year, singing at the Women of Soul White House Concert, and getting an invitation from former US President Barack Obama to perform at the Easter Egg Roll event at the White House was enough proof of how huge the year 2013/14 was for this Florida-born singer, amplifying the love her fans have for her.

Her musical success only got better…

The success of Arianna’s debut album only pushed her to greatness as her second album My Everything also debuted top in the Billboard 200. Problem, a song from the second album, won her the Best Pop Video award. Three songs from the album were among the top ten singles on the Billboard 100, securing her a spot as one of the only 2 females to have 3 top songs simultaneously as lead artists.

Her third and fourth studio albums titled Dangerous Woman and Sweetener, like their predecessors topped Billboard charts. Her fifth studio album Thank U, Next featured a song by the same name which debuted at number one in the Billboard Hot 100, being certified platinum an impressive five times, and was the most-watched video on YouTube in 24 hours. Her sixth studio album Positions, which was released in 2020 debuted top of the Billboard 200, making her one of the most successful singers globally.

From the harmonies in her song to the whistle notes that get her acclamation from music critics, it is safe to say that Ariana is by far one of the best female singers in these times.
