Ariana Grande Aiming for Second No. 1 Album
The young diva's second album, 'My Everything,' is on course to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Ariana Grande is set to notch her second No. 1 album in less than a year. Industry sources forecast the 21-year-old's new release, My Everything, to sell over 160,000 copies in the week ending Aug. 31.
The Billboard 200's new top 10 will be revealed on Wednesday, Sept. 3.
The new album, which was released on Aug. 25, is the follow-up to Grande's first album, Yours Truly, which was released on Sept. 2, 2013. It debuted atop the Billboard 200, selling 138,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It has sold 487,000 in total.
My Everything boasts three top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100: "Problem," featuring Iggy Azalea (which peaked at No. 2); "Break Free," featuring Zedd (No. 4); and her collaboration with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj, "Bang Bang" (No. 6). On the Hot 100 chart dated Aug. 30, all three of those songs were in the top 10 at the same time, making Grande only the second lead female artist to have three concurrent top 10 hits. (Only Adele, among lead-billed women, had done it previously.)
