Ariana Grande's "Positions" ascends to No. 1 on Billboard's Pop Songs radio airplay chart (dated Dec. 26).

The track, released on Republic Records, marks Grande's seventh No. 1 on Pop Songs, which ranks the week's most-played titles on a panel of over 160 mainstream top 40 stations, as monitored by Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

Here's a recap of Grande's seven Pop Songs No. 1s:

Title, Date reached No. 1, Weeks at No. 1
"Problem," feat. Iggy Azalea, July 12, 2014, two
"Side to Side," feat. Nicki Minaj, Dec. 24, 2016, five
"No Tears Left to Cry, July 21, 2018, one
"God Is a Woman," Nov. 10, 2018, one
"Thank U, Next," Jan. 26, 2019, one
"7 Rings," March 16, 2019, six
"Positions," Dec. 26, 2020, one (to-date)

Dating to her first week at No. 1, with "Problem" (July 12, 2014), Grande ties Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift for the most Pop Songs leaders in that span.

"Positions" premiered atop the Nov. 7-dated multi-metric Billboard Hot 100, marking Grande's fifth No. 1 and record-extending fifth No. 1 debut. The song is the title-track lead single from her latest LP, which launched as her fifth No. 1 on the Billboard 200 (Nov. 14) and led the list for two weeks.

All charts will update Tuesday (Dec. 22) on Billboard.com.
